Razer Blade 15 is a great playable laptop for both work and games, but there is always room for improvement. Normally when a laptop is being updated, it means updating the existing model, but Razer has done something else by unveiling an alternative version called Razer Blade 15 "Dual Storage Edition."
It's called because Razer included an SSD and a traditional hard drive, so you have two storage options. This is not an external new feature in the laptop space, but in the case of Blade 15, you get a feature that heavier, heavier gaming laptops usually have, but with the benefit of a 0.78 inch laptop's smaller footprint.
Double-layered Blade 1
This Blade 15 becomes the new entry-level model in the Blade series, while the higher models will remain at the same prices. It's an interesting strategy that can bring buyers who might have been careful about the previous $ 1,899 start price, or it can convince buyers who just do not need so much power.
To reduce costs, Razer removed the following: The 144Hz display, the steam cooling chamber (instead of a unibody fan exhaust that makes it a bit thicker) and it returned to an older Chroma backlighting technology, Function keys also remain backlit (as opposed to the more expensive models).
But Razer did not remove everything that the more expensive Blade 15 had in his arsenal. The Core i7-8750H processor remains, including the lower GTX 1060 Max Q graphics, 16GB RAM, and a pretty decent 1920 x 1080 screen with a 60Hz refresh rate. With these specifications, dual-storage Blade 15 may not be the same pixel-cutting power as the higher-end models, but you should still be able to play most games with medium high settings without too much trouble.
Oh, and Razer has also added an Ethernet port, which is useful, I suppose. Wired internet connections are still useful in 2018, especially at home or in the office.
Blade 15 with two storage places is available for purchase today, from $ 1,599 in the US, Europe and China. It will also be available in several European and Asia Pacific countries sometime in November 2018.
Also, getting a smaller update in the form of a new color is Blade 15. I know this can be confusing but this is what Razer joining. The better thinner and more expensive Razer Blade 15 (as you may already know) also comes in a new "Mercury White" color. And it looks good.
The new paint job provides an all-white keypad, illuminated tone-on-tone Razer logo, black ports instead of plain green, and comes in both GTX 1060 and GTX 1070 Max Q graphics configurations. It will start in the fourth quarter of 2018 solely through the Razer Store in the United States and Canada and with selected retailers in China.
