Razer’s latest Blade 15 Advanced gaming laptop is $600 off its usual price at the Microsoft Store. Normally $2,600 (and still that price over at Razer’s site), it’s down to $2,000. That’s still a lot of money, but this configuration makes up for it with solid specs. It features a 15.6-inch FHD display with a fast 300Hz refresh rate, so your games and other content will display smoothly, and the eight-core Intel Core i7-10875H processor and Nvidia RTX 2070 Super Max-Q graphics chip are a powerful duo. This model also features 16GB of RAM and a 512GB PCIe SSD (both of which are user-upgradeable).

To top it off, Razer’s chassis is still among the best that you can find in a gaming laptop. It’s thin, well-designed, sturdy, and it doesn’t necessarily give away that it’s a gaming laptop. But this machine is a fingerprint magnet, and it can get very hot.

I reviewed a more high-end version of the Blade 15 last month that features the RTX 2080 Super Max-Q, a larger SSD, and an SD card slot on the machine’s right side, but it’s otherwise the same machine. Overall, I found that the battery life is better than before, and Razer refined the keyboard layout — namely, the arrow keys, which caused typing errors for me due to them being too close to other crucial keys.

The Blade 15 Advanced is Razer’s best midsize gaming laptop. It has a more powerful processor than the base Blade 15, higher-end GPU options, and a slimmer design.
