Razer Blade review The keyboard is neatly placed with 80-keys arranged just like a typical gaming keyboard. This means, it will have less ‘ghosting’. The term denotes the keyboard operation where functions of many keys pressed in quick succession are missed if done quickly in a sequence. Anti-ghosting attribute allow the user to key in a combination of keys in quick succession and the instructions are followed by the computer in detail. The keyboard also allows macro-functions (where multiple keys are programmed to form a typical sequence). Although the key does not have all the facilities of SteelSeries, yet it is noteworthy.

Razer Blade Review on Features

Just like a typical gaming laptop, the Razer Blade 14-inch model is made up of Intel core i7-4702HQ quad core. This allows the user to work on heavy graphics movies. The processor which runs at a speed of 2.2GHz is capable of working with least two software utilities simultaneously. In other words, the laptop is capable of hyper threading. Even during such loaded work, the CPU works seamlessly. The speed of the processor can be further increased to 3.2GHz when turbo boost technology is introduced into the system. Razer Blade Review The laptop has an internal memory of 8GB DDR3 that effortlessly offer a memory speed of 1600 MHz. The storage capacity is 256GB Solid State Drive (SSD). Along with mSATA interface, the laptop is able to boot-up fast, open a new game quickly, and wake up from sleep mode instantly.

Performance of Razer Blade

The internal computing gizmo has made this laptop from Razor Inc really a tough nut to crack. It performs with immense vigor without giving in to slackness even when multi-tasking. The SSD storage capacity is good enough to ensure continuous gaming session. The memory is sufficient to display application programming interface (API), Dx11 based games. The 14-inch display does not have a touchscreen option. The screen is aided with a backlighting facility – which means it can be viewed even in the dark. The screen resolution is not an impressive one that one usual expects in a gaming laptop. In games where videos are realistically made to ensure users are glued to the set, a resolution of only 1600×900 pixels is rather disappointing. Nevertheless the graphics utilities are a saving grace that helps to user to watch HD animation with ease. The videos with 1080p however, need a laptop with better specifications. There is a webcam of 1.3M that offers HD videos. Working in Windows 8 operating system makes Razer Blade reliable, fast performing, and a useful tool. The OS readily connects with the Killer Wireless-N 1202 at a bandwidth of 802.11a/b/g/n + BT4 to connect the laptop with the gaming network.
