Razer Blade (2014)

Verge Review

I feel spoiled. Ever since I started playing games on the new Razer Blade gaming laptop, I've had a tough time enjoying them practically anywhere else.

    Previously I owned a Retina MacBook Pro 15 inch (2013/14) switched to Razer because I wanted 'more' performance.
    I have no regret (only thing what I do miss is OS X).

    Pro's:
    - It's a Gorgeous Portable Windows Power House Laptop.
    - Display

    Cons:
    - It can get really HOT
    - Battery life is 2 hours ONLY when you play demanding games like: Crysis 3, and Battlefiield 4.
