Those looking for a new gaming laptop should check out the discounts on Razer Blade machines that Amazon currently has. The most prominent among them is the Razer Blade Stealth 2020, which fell to a record low of $ 1,400. That’s $ 600 less than the usual price, and given that one of our biggest drawbacks to the laptop was its high price, a big deal if you’re looking for a powerful gaming machine in an ultra portable shell.
Buy Razer Blade Stealth on Amazon – $ 1,400
We were impressed by the versatility of Blade Stealth – a gaming laptop powerful enough to work Overwatch at 1080p 70 fps, but light enough to tuck into a backpack and take to a coffee shop to do some work. It has an elegant but solid design and weighs only 3 kilograms, which is much lighter than most slot machines. A particular model on sale has a 10th generation Core i7 processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q graphics, 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of SSD. All of this should provide enough power in most situations, and the package is enhanced by the 13-inch 4K touchscreen that comes with it. Depending on how you use it, with Stealth you should also get about eight hours of battery life.
Several other 2020 models are on sale on Amazon, and they seem to differ from those currently available on Razer’s website. There’s the Razer Blade Pro 17, which costs $ 900 and drops to a record low of $ 2,300. It’s for a model with a tenth-generation Core i7 processor, NVIDIA RTX 2080 Super Max-Q graphics, 16GB of RAM, 512GB of SSD and a 17.3-inch 1080p display with a refresh rate of 300Hz. The Razer Blade 15 Advanced with a tenth-generation octa-core Core i7 processor, RTX 2070 Super Max-Q graphics, 16GB of RAM, 512GB of SSD and a 15.6-inch 1080p screen of 300Hz is also under $ 1,800. We’ve seen it fall lower before, but it’s still a good deal at over $ 800 off.
