    Great performance, so-so battery life

    So, I'm loving this Razer blade 15 base model. I bought it for content creation (video editing and photo) The only complaint is the battery life takes a hit, because of the smaller battery, the 2nd HDD taking up space. I knew this, and video and photo take up space, so I chose the 2nd HDD option rather than the Advanced model (which only has a single NVMe drive). This is one of the few content creation laptops that support 2 drives.... Still, I'm getting like 4-5hrs doing web and Netflix, which is kinda low. I probably need to tweak the battery settings and the Razer Synapse App. There are multiple settings to manage performance vs battery. @@@@@@@@ Windows, RAZER apps, and Nvidia settings) so that can be a little overwhelming. But it's nice to be able to change the settings and customize. I did manage about 2hrs on battery editing 4k video in Adobe Premiere. If the 4k files are on the NVMe drive during editing this thing is butter smooth. With the 4k files on the HDD the RAM usage goes up. But still handles video editing 4k files once they render on the timeline. Sidenote: Nvidia is working on Creator/Studio drivers rather than the Gaming drivers. They really want to optimize the GPU for creatives. Currently my Nvidia App/drivers get updates frequently, So, I'm glad Nvidia is still paying attention to the 1060 Max-Q graphics in this laptop.

    After months of debating I finally pulled the trigger on the late 2018 Razer Blade 15 (256GB/2TB). Satisfied with the appearance, and performance. Overall I think I got my money's worth. Purchased for light gaming and for gaming.

    This laptop has exceeded my expectations for performance. Everything is smooth and sleek and it has a surprising amount of subtle features. It's comparable to a MacBook Pro in feel but far far far more robust. My ONLY gripe of this machine is that it shows fingerprints somewhat easy. I was not expecting that and it takes a bit away from the overall aesthetic appeal of the laptop Like I said that's my only gripe, thus far it has done everything I needed it to do and proven to be a very very good buy. I even bought my girlfriend the same model so she could enjoy it and not feel jealous that my laptop basically trivialized hers. But ya know... that's love I guess... I would recommend looking into the accessories Razer makes such as the external GPU enclosure as i've Never seen anything like that before and now that it's a technology I think it's super cool. Though i'ven't purchased it yet. Still the possibilities... In closing I don't regret it at all. I cringed a little when I swiped my card and then again when I swiped it for my girl but it's been totally worth it!

    I'm using this Razer laptop primarily for telerads and, so far, I've been very satisfied with its performance. Beautiful, crisp graphics. Built-in mouse is sometimes a bit cumbersome to use.
