    Is it perfect? No, November 10, 2016
    By 

    This my 3rd razer laptop (I have the first generation 17 inch laptop and the razer blade 14 inch with a 765m). Is it perfect? No. Do I love it. YES! I ordered mine through the Razer store, but figured I would drop a review here.

    THE GOOD:
    – Specs. The specs on this thing are amazing. Core i7, 1TB SSD, a 1060 (pascal!!), with 16gb of ram? Yes please.
    – The build. Quality throughout. Well built, sturdy, and (at least on mine) no issues with defects.
    – The screen. I opted for the QHD touchscreen. If you are do not care about a touchscreen, GET THE 1080. I don’t care too much for the upscale resolution, but the matte finish was a big deal for me. I would love a matte touchscreen, but I actually do use the touchscreen, so I enjoy having the QHD. The colors are vibrant with excellent viewing angles. Great screen overall, but again, if you’re not really going to use the touchscreen, save some money and grab the 1080 resolution.
    – Performance. I’ve been able to run most games with full ultra settings comfortably at 1080. Native resolution? Well…a 1060 isn’t powerful enough for most of the graphic intensive games I’ve tried at ultra or max settings. For instance, Witcher 3, 1080 with ultra (hairworks turned off) and it can comfortably run at 55-60 FPS. Arkham knight was running at 50+ FPS at around 54+ FPS at 1080. Tomb Raider (2013) ran the benchmark at 60FPS when on ultimate. GTA V I turned everything to max, 1080, and ran it and got (FPS per pass) 42, 36, 43, 47, and 46. I also turned down a few options and reran it at 1080 and got 59, 60, 60, 60, and 59. If you want to turn up the resolution a bit, you can, but it will be a tradeoff of which settings you need to turn down (obviously). I doubt this is capably of playing games well at 4k, although I do have a 2k monitor and it runs fine on it.
    – Core. The razer core is one of the main reasons I updated to the new laptop from my 765m model. With core compatibility I can upgrade graphics cards in the future and have a traditional desktop setting with monitor, keyboard, mouse, etc. I also have a cooling pad on my desktop so it stays cool (more on this later). I really like having a set desktop area, with a 2k monitor, mouse, keyboard, etc, but still retaining portability.
    – Chroma. Nice incentive to get the razer. It looks neat, but doesn’t really serve any practical purposes. I leave mine on the “fire setting” most of the time, but it’s easy to turn off or change.
    – Keyboard and touchpad. The keyboard and touchpad are fine. I wish they would have made the function key purposes light up, but it’s a small complaint. The touchpad works fine for everyday use, but who doesn’t game with a mouse?
    – Portability. This is where the Blade really shines. When I bought my original blade I thought, if this were only a bit smaller….then a while after that they came out with the 14″ version and I was hooked. I love the portability. Perfect size for on the go. PORTABILITY is why you pay more than other brands and it’s still (IMHO) decently priced.
    – Battery life. I’ve watched some movies and gotten about 3-4 hours of comfortable view time. That’s decent, considering all the power under the hood. Gaming…well…game with it plugged in. I haven’t tried to game with it unplugged most of the time, but when I have, 1-2 hours is what I’ve gotten before windows tells me it’s going to turn off. PS: you can buy a non-razer power charger that works fine for around $50, but it’s pretty dammed brick-like and not portable like the razer one. Works well if you don’t care about portability for a few spots, like at a desk at home.

    THE BAD:
    – Heat. This thing gets HOT. The areas underneath are HOT. Don’t be fooled. It’s a “notebook” and not a “laptop” for a reason! This would probably burn your lap if you put it on bare skin while doing anything intensivine. I use a cooling pad whenever I game because the heating does concern me. That said, the heat IS directed away from common areas, like the WASD keys and touchpad. I ran some thermal monitors and I suspect it may be throttling a bit (temps max out around 83-85C) in some circumstances, but it’s not noticeable in games (at least I haven’t noticed). The fans do a good job and cooling seems all around better than my 765m model, although this is another weakness…
    – Fan noise. Fan noise has never bothered me and it still doesn’t. But if you are easily bothered by fan noise, just know that fan noise is an issue with the new version. The fans are ALWAYS on and they can get quite loud, even under low loads. Like I said, doesn’t bother me (I just like to know that my $2600 laptop isn’t going to become a paperweight due to poor heat management). They do a better job of cooling than my 765m version, however. I think Razer has probably increased it’s default fan RPMs in the BIOs or something.

    THE UGLY:
    – Core compatibility. If…

    Best Windows laptop you can buy, November 7, 2016

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I did a lot of searching, reading reviews, and comparing different models before deciding to purchase this laptop. Originally, I had waited for Microsoft and Apple to announce updates to the Surface Book and MacBook Pro, thinking I would upgrade to whichever of these fit my needs best.

    I’m a software developer, so the things that were most important to me were:
    Decent screen size
    Great keyboard
    Memory
    Performance

    I did not purchase this laptop for it’s gaming capabilities and it seems a shame to me that Razer has branded themselves as a gaming company instead of a premium Windows laptop company. The build quality on this machine is off the charts, and the keyboard is the best keyboard I have used on a laptop(including MBP).

    One thing I would like to see fixed: Two finger swipes in the browser for navigating forward/backward. At the moment, three finger swipes work for switching programs, but I would really like a gesture for navigation. That is literally the only ding I have against this laptop, and it wasn’t enough for me to take a star away.

    Pros:
    ⦁ Extremely fast boot-up
    ⦁ Beautiful screen colors
    ⦁ CPU is one of the best on the market
    ⦁ GPU can run most games without an issue

    Cons:
    ⦁ The battery will last you ~4 hours if you are doing light browsing in power-save mode.
    ⦁ When attempting to dim the screen to save battery, it does not seem to dim very low. This is very strange, at even 0% brightness the screen is still the brightest screen in the classroom. (I guess this could be a good thing?)
    ⦁ The black aluminum body is a nightmare to keep clean. (oil smudges are visible everywhere).

    Seriously though, if you are looking for a laptop that is powerful, lightweight and capable of playing most of your games; this is the laptop for you.
    If you are looking for a laptop that lasts a long time on battery life, this laptop is probably not the laptop for you.
