Razer Blade 15 (2019) review: Sharper than ever

By Koh Wanzi - 2 Apr 2019

Conclusion

This is one handsome laptop

2019's version of the Razer Blade 15 is cut from the same cloth as its predecessor. It is slightly thicker and heavier to accommodate the more powerful NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q, but its design remains largely unchanged. Some design quirks also remain, such as the non-standard location of the right Shift key, which I know some people find to be supremely annoying. Still, this is hardly a deal breaker, and there's still a lot to like about the laptop. 

Elsewhere, Razer added support for Windows Hello facial authentication, but at its core, the new Blade 15 is very simply a faster version of last year's model. That's not necessarily a bad thing, and the Blade 15 remains the most compact 15.6-inch gaming notebook on the market and one of the best-looking ones to boot. 

Its build quality is truly second to none, and its subtle, minimalist design means it won't stick out as much in an office setting. However, what I really like about it is how much attention Razer has paid to the details. For instance, while many gaming laptops still feature lackluster trackpads and dim displays, the Blade 15 boasts a bright and vivid screen and a large glass precision trackpad. Its chassis also remains undisturbed by vents at the side that might blow hot air onto your mousing hand, although I really wish that Razer would release a version without the illuminated triple-headed snake logo on the lid. 

The Blade 15 will cut a huge chunk out of your wallet, but that's the price you pay for a top-end GPU and good design. To be sure, it's hardly perfect, and noise and heat concerns are very real. However, I could say the same of pretty much any slim and light gaming laptop, and the fact remains that the Blade 15 stands up well against the competition and is simply very, very fast. The Razer Blade 15 is priced at S$4,679 is available directly from Razer or you could also get it from Lazada.
