Razer debuted new CES 2023, however the firm was mum about whether or not its 15-inch mannequin would stay within the line. Well, now we all know it should. Along with Nvidia’s newest , Razer launched a brand new model of the 15-inch mannequin geared up with as much as an RTX 4070, in addition to fashions of the Blade 16 and Blade 18 with RTX 4060 and 4070 GPUs.-inch and laptop computer line at
They’re all obtainable beginning at $2,500 (£2,500, AU$4,599) for the Blade 15 with an Intel Core i7-13800H, 240Hz 1440p show, RTX 4060, 16GB RAM and 1TB SSD. The 16-inch line now begins at $2,700 (£2,700, AU$4,999) with a Core i9-13950HX, 240Hz 1600p show — that is Razer’s new 16:10 side ratio providing — an RTX 4060, 16GB RAM and 1TB SSD. And the 18-inch begins at $2,900 (£2,900, AU$5,399) with the identical configuration, however clearly a much bigger display.
Like a lot of companies, Razer is keeping the 15-inch model around, at least for a while, albeit for only $200 less. And that makes a lot of sense once you factor in the weight: The 16-inch weighs a full pound (half a kilogram) more at 5.4lbs/2.5kg vs. 4.4lbs/2kg for the smaller model. That’s a lot of heft added for a slightly larger screen and i9 HX series CPU, though there’s a lot of necessary cooling hardware that’s probably to blame.
The 16-inch is also 5mm thicker, which is a significant (about 30%) bump. In the absence of the size and weight considerations, it’s probably worth the extra $200 for the higher-resolution screen and notably faster processor.
