    Non gamer in love with this laptop

    I’m not a gamer- but I needed the power and the storage this setup provides. Perfect answer to my work challenges. Lightning fast, ridiculous storage and it’s not too hard on the eyes either.

    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.

    I would give it a 4.5 star if there was a choice. Great laptop. Taking a star off for the high price. It was 1500 it would've been worth every penny. Fan noise while gaming is definitely tolerable, not annoying at all. While doing productivity work, it's almost silent, and cool enough to stay on lap. It has a much better cooling than the so called "vapor chamber" models, not sure why, maybe the extra thickness and less performance needed for a lower refresh rate screen. I prefer this model just the heat issue alone. I returned the RTX2060 model, simply because it ran way too hot and loud, it's silent at idle, but still much hotter than the base. The GTX1060 definitely satisfies all the casual gaming you wanna do. If you are one of those guys, you need a 144Hz screen to play games, then you are at the wrong place. The extra thickness is not an issue at all, you wouldn't even know it's thicker unless you have the thinner model side by side. Great laptop overall, a bit over-priced

    My first ever gaming/high performance computer

    Since this is my first ever actually good computer i dont know how it compares to other high end laptops but i can say its realllllly fast, you press the power button and boom instantly on no load screens or anything. I can play basically the most recent games like devil may cry 5 and RAGE 2 on ultra settings across the board. I also gears of war 4 multiplayer on ultra settings and it runs smooth as butter. I would of given it 5 stars but i get an occasional game freeze which is fixs by ctrl+alt+del. I undervolted to see if it would help with the freezing and heat (gets realllly hot which concerns me). Now it doesnt go passed 84C and thts usually a quick peak it doesnt stay at that temp, usually between 70C-75C while gaming. One more reason i didnt give it 5 stars is that the screen could be brighter and a little more vibrant. Overall id say its a great performing laptop, the build quality is great, i love the finish on it, its not big and bulky and its got a nice regular non-gaming laptop look to it. The price is pretty steep considering base model but you are paying for the name and quality of build/parts. If you have the extra cash to spend id say buy it in a heartbeat! I ended up buying razers RGB lightstrips and hooked it up behind a "27 144hz dell monitor that i got on sale ;) it definetly makes you more immersed into the game. No questions asked but id definetly buy it again or even upgrade to the maxxed out 4K model!!

    I bought this on sale. So far the laptop has been great. Starts up very fast. I don't tend to play the latest and greatest games when they are new, but I tried it out on Fallout 4 on the highest settings and everything looked good with no slowdowns or choppy frames. I'm not crazy about the keyboard and the fans do get loud at times, but other than that I'm really happy with the purchase.

    For someone that has used a simple laptop to begin with, this laptop is a huge improvement. It can run pretty much everything and is very lightweight. I dislike how it heats up fast though.

    I’ve always had a MacBook so I decided to give windows a shot. Went with razer because I like to game. This laptop does amazing with gaming on the go. It does get warm when playing but that’s expected. 10/10

    A bit pricey, loud, and hot. If you need a mobile gaming laptop, you can’t go wrong with Razor. I ultimately took it back because of the poor reputation of the fixability.

    Great product. Super fast and powerful yet very slim and light. The memory is a blessing as you don’t have to worry about not having enough space. Fingerprints marks are annoying so make sure to have the cloth they provide handy
