When you think of PC gaming, Razer is likely the first name that comes to mind. They have pioneered the PC gaming world, and their latest laptop, the Razer Blade is one of the best gaming laptops available right now. The Razer Blade Gaming Laptop would make a great gift for anyone on your Holiday shopping list, especially if they are a gamer.
Spec-wise, the Razer Blade has everything you'd expect. There's a 14-inch Full HD IPS display, which is great for playing games without getting a reflection on the display. It's running on the latest Intel Core i7-6700HQ processor, that's a quad-core chipset and the best one out there right now. It also has 16GB of DDR4 RAM with the option of 256GB, 512GB or 1TB SSD storage. When it comes to the graphics, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 is running the show, and it has 6GB of GDDR5 VRAM to make those graphics pop. Razer has also included Thunderbolt 3, which is the same connectivity that Apple has in their latest Macbook Pro laptops. It is razor thin (pun intended) at just 0.7-inches thick. Even with the aluminum chassis, the Razer Blade is just 4.16 pounds. Which is still fairly light for a laptop of this size.
The Razer Blade does run on Windows 10, which also means that all games running on Windows 10 will be compatible. Including all of your favorites like Rocket League, Counter Strike: Global Offensive, and League of Legends to name a few. What's even more impressive is the fact that the Razer Blade is indeed VR-ready. Meaning that you can pick up an Oculus Rift or the HTC Vive and hook it up to the Razer Blade to play some even better games, in virtual reality.
Like most gaming laptops, the Razer Blade is a fairly expensive affair, coming in at nearly two grand. But when you look at all the specs that are in the Razer Blade, it's not hard to figure out why it costs so much. It's a laptop that is future-proof for about 5 years if not a bit longer. Which also makes it a great gift to have under the tree this Holiday season, since it definitely won't fit in a stocking.
