    That is so expensive. I could make a PC with all the best specs for that money.

    The 2016 version of this looks great. Kinda wish it had a 980m instead of 970m but oh well.

    hi I'm planning on buying a razer laptop but don't know which one, I'm a designer so I'm also looking for a laptop that has the highest resolution possible, ram and memory in short the best specs , as I design also billboards, which eats up a lot of ram but I want also to play games.

    which razer laptop should I buy or if you recommend other brands tell me 🙂 thank you

    who else thinks a huge downfall is from the razer blades memory i mean 100-500 gb? is that all it might be a bit cheaper then the alienware but alienware 14 is the same price as a razerblade better specs now? alienware 17 is 1k more expensive with slightly different specs over all alienware is better for performance but not in price but if u want to get the cheapest alienware then 14 is the way to go its near the range of the razer but i guess u dont NEED to be playing games at high quality medium to low quality with 30 frames is all you need unless ur a pro gamer doing comps and stuff thats when you need an alienware if i were to choose i would choose an alienware

    @JordanBowering Razer blade is better for gaming and more powerful

    Truly it all depends on what OS you like.

    Gaming PC: Higher fps, more customizable, better resolution and quality, usually online gaming is free
    Gaming console: Easy to play with friends when on same console, controllers are less tiring(some games you can still use controllers on PC)

    You are welcome in advance.

    I love how people talk about gaming desktops in gaming laptop reviews. I mean…you really can't compare the two. This is a mini laptop size portable with screen+ battery. Desktops can be huge and need monitor +electricity to run. STOP comparing gaming laptops to gaming desktops. You are making yourself look stupid!!

    $1500 on amazon for the 256 gb configuration. Although the screen resolution gets me everytime, deal breaker for many
