11 Reasons For

Razer Has Good Laptop Reviews

Razer has good average ratings for its gaming laptops as well as across its entire portable PC range compared to other manufacturers.

Has a Front Camera

The Razer Blade has a front camera. Most of the other laptops of a similar age and type to the Blade also have a front camera.

1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed

The Razer Blade supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than most gaming laptops that have been around for around the same time as it. Most gaming laptops that have been on the market for around the same time as it support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed. This notebook PC also supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds.

A 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed is in fact the best supported memory clock speeds supported by processor across all gaming laptops that were launched more than two years ago.

SSD Storage Medium

The Razer Blade has an SSD storage medium which is better than the HDD storage medium found on most comparable spec notebook PCs that are a similar age to it. Solid State Drives (SSD) store data in semiconductors on a circuit board rather than using magnetic or optical media. Solid State Drives have no moving parts which makes them very fast and reliable.

This laptop's storage medium (SSD) is actually the best storage medium across all notebook PCs that came out more than two years ago.

An HDD storage medium is the worst storage medium across similar types of laptop.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative laptops that have an SSD storage media currently available including the X3 Plus (£1,629.54), or the X3 Plus (£1,629.54) both from AORUS which has better reviews.
