The New 15-inch Razer Blade Is a Gaming Workhorse in a Practical Package

The new redesigned Razer Blade laptop (now called the Razer Blade 15) is no longer a thin little outlier in the chunky landscape of portable gaming machines. When it was a 14-inch laptop, it was a powerhouse for its size—an incredible feat of engineering that managed to be an accomplished gaming machine and a laptop portable enough to be tossed in the bag. Over the last year the landscape of gaming laptops has radically altered course, and Razer is no longer the only company selling thin and light gaming laptops.

Razer’s Redesigned Blade Gaming Laptop Gets Bigger, Burlier

The laptop was supposed to get smaller. When the bezels shrink and the guts get faster, that’s what’s supposed to happen. But instead Razer’s 14-inch Blade laptop is being supersized into a 15.6-inch machine for its next version. And I’m almost convinced that’s the right decision. Read More >>

MSI’s GS65 Stealth is a Gaming Laptop Made for Adults

Shouty RGB lighting and aggressive red and black paints jobs can be a lot of fun, especially when you’re a teenager or someone who thinks putting lots of Xs in their gamertag makes them seem edgy. But at some point, it’s time to grow up. Now that doesn’t mean you need to cut out video games completely, don’t be silly. After all, everyone is a gamer now, with people ages 36 and up representing 45 percent of the total US gamer population. Instead, maybe just consider buying gaming gear that doesn’t look like you’re hosting a one person rave every time you turn it on. Read More >>

MSI’s GS63VR Is a Perfectly Balanced Gaming Laptop

A couple months ago I reviewed MSI’s GT75VR, and even though I respect how hard it is to cram desktop-level components, ridiculously loud speakers, and a custom mechanical keyboard in a laptop body, gigantic 17-inch systems like that don’t really do it for me. That’s because weighing in at almost 10 pounds and measuring 2.3-inches thick, the GT75VR doesn’t really deliver the portability I expect from a gaming laptop. With a starting price of £2,599, it sure as hell ain’t cheap either. But the GS63VR Stealth Pro is a whole ‘nother story. It’s slim, it’s sleek, and it’s got one of the most colourful RGB keyboards out there—all starting at £1,479. Read More >>

Alienware Proves That Laptop Size Doesn’t Have to Matter

When it comes to playing games, I’ve always preferred consoles to computers. Building (or buying) a custom gaming rig can be fun, but I need a dedicated laptop. And gaming laptops can definitely bring the power, but often with a size and battery-life trade-off that would make it impossible to use in any non-gaming scenario. So it used to be that if I wanted to game, it was easier to for me to spend money on an Xbox One S or PlayStation 4 Pro, rather than messing with PCs. But the new Alienware 13 is changing my mind about gaming laptops. Read More >>

You Can Game on This Super Cheap Laptop, But It Won’t Be Pretty

If you’re trying to spend less than £1000 on a computer you plan to use daily, then you will find yourself making compromises. In the case of the Dell Inspiron 7000, you get a beefy gaming computer that can take whatever game designers throw at it. Unfortunately, its physical design is rife with trade-offs. Indeed, you get a pretty great machine when you spend £900 on Dell’s budget gaming laptop, but you’re never gonna forget it’s cheap. Read More >>

Razer Crammed Three 4K Displays Into One Insane Gaming Laptop

You know what the laptop needed to make it better? It doesn’t need better battery life or to be lighter or thinner. It needs three goddamn 4K displays strapped onto one device. At least that is what Razer thinks, and having played with its new concept device, Project Valerie, I’ve got to say, I’m down with having a laptop that’s thick as a brick so long as it has three 17.3-inch monitors built in. That’s a lot of pixels. Read More >>

Acer’s Absurd Curved Display Laptop Has a Predictably Humongous Price Tag 

Look, we’ve been a little amped about Acer’s absurd curved display laptop, the Predator 21-X. It has a stupid name, isn’t practical or reasonable, and if you have brittle bone disease it would probably destroy your lap. But it’s also a laptop with a 21-inch curved display and goddammit that is as cool as it is stupid. It is also, we’ve just learned, going to be very very expensive. Read More >>

Razer Blade Review: The Best Gaming Laptop Just Got Even Better

For years now, the Razer Blade has been the go-to laptop for gamers who want a little style mashed up with their function. The 2016 version is the best yet: It’s lighter, faster, and — critically — $400 cheaper than its predecessor (UK pricing TBC). Yup, Razer has made its sharpest Blade yet. Read More >>

ASUS G501 Lightning Review: If the MacBook Pro Could Game

Want a thin gaming laptop? We have a whole guide for that—but the ASUS G501 wasn’t the best laptop on our list. In fact, I kind of dismissed it with just three sentences. It deserves more. Let’s take a slightly deeper look. Read More >>

Review: This Laptop With a Mechanical Keyboard is Delightfully Crazy

I'm typing this on a laptop with a real keyboard. Real, as in without the compromise in size, tactility or function that you've come to expect in laptops. I don't really know how to express how strange that is. Read More >>
