The new Blade 14 ****ing rocks… But I reneged on my deal with
@minliangtan anyway :p
Buying mine off amazon today! I remember when I first laid eyes on this
machine, promised myself to either get this, or the MSI GS60 Ghost Pro 3K,
or the MSI GS70 Stealth Pro.
The GS70 only support 1920×1080, however it has 6GB of VRAM and “super raid
2” aka 3 SSD in raid 0.
The GS60 has 3k res, however the power bricks of the MSI laptops are huge…
Finally I came back to the Razer Blade. I have always been a strong razer
fan since 2012, when I bought their Naga Molten gaming mouse and Nostromo.
Then I came across the Blade in late 2013. Only prob was the TN panel. I
decided to wait till mid 2014. Here we are with the Razer 2014, with it’s
super sleek battery, full aluminum chassis, sexy green usb3.0 ports (MSI is
copying them by making their products have red ports), and really nice
touch and keyboards. Now they have the best looking laptop screen currently
on the market (imo), so hell, going for this one. Although it’s only 512
GB, I still have my trusty 1TB external WD drive to go along with it. I
will also be getting a wireless mouse, but I don’t know which one to
get….if you guys could help me out and recommend a good wireless mouse,
that would be great. I thought about the Naga epic, but Razer is not ready
to conquer wireless technology yet.
$2,000 isn’t bad for what it has in store. If you have a car that costs
$2,000 it must be a pretty shitty drive haha.
Build a fucking desktop. If you’re a real gamer, you don’t need to leave
your fucking house ever. Fuck meeting other people IRL. Fuck
Do a review of the Alienware 13 please!
I bought this laptop solely on this review and its physical appearance and
feel are outstanding! However, the Intel wireless card has several issues
and surprisingly it can not handle FarCry 4!!!! For the price point of over
$2000 it should be able to at least handle this game on medium settings!
The gameplay is so unbearable it makes me want to return this computer. I
have trusted most every review Linus has done and I have modeled my
exceptional desktop around his reviews and I am as happy as I could be with
my build. The Razor Blade 14 just does not live up to the hype and in the
future hopefully Linus will run more up to date games on the laptops before
giving it his elusive “Editor’s Choice Award”.
well i think apple should sue them for stealing their design ! and
surprisingly my friend has this model and he cant pull more than 25 frames
on max settings while i am on a macbook pro late 2014 256 SSD 2.2 ghz quad
core and i can pull 30 FPS on LOL on max settings
I think it’s amazing …but the 8GB RAM is the deal breaker. :/
at least people can’t say “apple’s overpriced” anymore.
Did I mı̸̸̸̸̸̸̸̸̸̸̸̸̸̸̸̸̨ake you wipe your screen?
“i use 6 gigs of ram just browsing the net”
what the hell are you doing on your browser? im running spotify, srware
iron, game maker atm and only use ~2.5 gB of ram out of 8 gB.
but you do seem like the person who doesn’t look after his money, you get
sent free stuff and you’re used to having whatever piece of technology
carried for you :)
Your car costs 3k ? Wtf
Who is this for, for $2,500. That’s fucking crazy! You can buy a fully
loaded Desktop for a lot less than that. Then, you can buy a decent
“gaming” laptop for cheaper that can do everything this can and if you want
to game on it use Steam’s In-Home Streaming.
An msi or gigabyte laptop would be more worth it
wow this isnt bad, but id like to see a gtx965m or 970m in the future.
What’s your wallpaper please ? I
Ugh..! I really want one of these, but I have a MacBook Pro and its just
awesome. I couldn’t live without OSX (I do have a gaming PC)
I travel alot and i’m playing to get a laptp
op for games that wont me too heavy for me. I plan on playing bf4, crysis3,
and other gamed like that.Would this laptop be good for me?
I personally like Razer myself. However, I am a little disappointed with
this laptop. I understand that it is small and there is a big amount of
power inside, but honestly, it is way overpriced. I would put this laptop
at $1370. Compared with the GT70 and ASUS G751JT this thing is just sad.
hi Linus it looks like Razer addressed your concern #2. The 2015 now comes
with 16GB ram, 970M. It looks like they passed on #3 and #4 (mini display
and Ethernet port/adapter) and its unclear whether they addressed #1 (black
levels). They might have addressed price with a non-QHD model but then on
that one they skimped on RAM. So that model trades your #5 for #2. Tackling
1/4 of your observations isn’t too shabby. I can live with a USB to
Ethernet adapter but I do wonder what kind of hit I take with that
Wait wait wait, did you say this does not have an ethernet port?
Linus, could you do a review on the 2015 model?
Razer products to gaming is like Beats to audiophiles.
Any word on a review for the 2015 version? I want to consider it for my
I do love it and agree it is one of the most solid laptops available. But
why the FUCK do we need a 3200×1800 resolution screen? 1080p is totally
fine and now games won’t run nearly as well. Now I have to downscale on a
higher resolution monitor which will definitely make the picture look
