Would you recomend these laptops? I was wondering if they wuld be woth the price compared to other competitors.
Hello Kyle!
How are you today?
Hello Taylor. Good, and you?
I'm great You want to know about the RazerBlade right?
Well, actually any laptop that they offer. I was wondering if they are worth the price compared to other cheaper offers from competitors, such as Digital Storm.
We only offer the Razer Blade's !
And yes, they are worth absolutely every penny
I own two of them :-)
Haha. So could you tell me then, what makes the razer blade so much better than a product that I am looking at (with nearly the same specs), because the blade is nearly $1000 more expensive
The Blade is clocked and geared for straight gaming, unlike regular laptops that are built for general computer use. The Blade comes with its own windows interface, and immerses you into a gaming world instead of generic windows slow loading computers.
Would it still have the same web functionality as other laptops, or is it literally a "true gaming laptop?"
It has the same functionality, but instead of using Internet Explorer, you use the Razer web browser :-)
Can you tell me what makes the Razer browser better than ones like Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Google Chrome?
It looks cooler and runs faster in my experience.
What would you beb using the Blade for?
I would mainly be using the blade for gigh demanding games and recording/editing software.
It would be perfect for that!
Ok. An upcoming game's specs were recently released called Crysis 3. Do you believe that the Blade can run games with such high demands such as from FarCry 3, upcoming Crysis 3, and any other high demanding games at max settings, with a recording software open in the background?
The Blade will be able to run every game at max specs for the next 3 years I believe. Unless something crazy comes out that needs 54gb video card lol.
What kind of recording software do you use?
Right now I use Fraps, I plan on getting a better one in the future though. So can you tell me the differences between the Razer Blade and the New Razer Blade?
I run The Secret World at max settings, and I stream and run FRAPS at the same time and still have 150 fps.
The new Blade has slightly higher specs, newer software and a better interface.
To put it in a nutshell.
So if I was mainly just starting out (and would probably be bankrupt from the purchase haha) I should just buy the Razer Blade, not he New Razer Blade?
Well, Let me ask you a question. Do you want to have the baddest laptop for the next 3 years, or 5 years?
New Razer Blade
That is a good point, but from what you said, either laptop will get me where I need to be, and be functional, within the next five years anyways.

New Razer Blade
17.3" Gaming Laptop

• Intel Core i7 Quad Core Processor with Hyper-Threading
• CPU: 2.2GHz (Base) / 3.2GHz (Turbo)
• Intel HM77 Express Chipset
• NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M 2GB GDDR5
• 8GB Dual Channel DDR3 at 1600MHz
• 500GB
Those are the exact specs
The GTX 660M is infinitely faster than the GT 555M, just because of how its made and the drivers available for it.
True. So do any of the two laptops come with a Razer mouse or keyboard?
They have a built in Razer keyboard, but it does not come with a mouse unfortunately.
Are there any deals to get either of the two laptops for a cheaper price,and is the 1,999.99 and 2,499.99 a total price, or are there customizations that may raise/lower the price?
There may be a sale closer to xmas, so I would like the Razer Facebook page and stay tuned to that.
Have you liked them on Facebook?
Also, have you subscribed to the newsletter?
Not yet, and what would you say the usual sale would drop the price to?
Last year it was about 20% off
In all, if I were looking at another competitor, I should look here first, and if these are only a couple $100 more, I should definitly get these?
Well, in all honesty before I even began working for Razer I did weeks worth of research on laptops. Razer is the only gaming laptop worth getting.
If you want a laptop, and you want to game at max resolution and settings, and stream etc. The Blade is the only thing on the market that you can do that with. Coupled with Razer's support and software, it's unbeatable.
What other competitors have you looked at?
How many problems would you say hat you have run into using Razer?
None whatsoever, literally.
I have never had any issues with any of my Razer products personally.
Ok. Tell me, as a customer, why I should spend nearly 2k on a laptop, when I can get an xbox, ps3, and hd-pvr, all for a lower price combined?
PC's have higher graphics, better quality games, open online worlds that you can immerse yourself in, and rewarding friendships where you can actually see your friends character, interact with them etc. Xbox and PS3 gaming is all about blowing people up
They are more for single player experiences, and kids needing epeen boosts.
I don't know if you have heard of a long lasting web series called Red vs. Blue, but how would a Razer be able to handle Maya and programs similar to tha?
That is the Halo series right?
Yes, exactly.
I'm vaguely familiar with it
Well they do a lot of editing and animations. Which, as you could guess, takes up a lot of space in a computer. How long would you say I could do the for? I will be right back.
The newer blade has 500gb of memory, so you could edit forever if you want. Simply delete the project after you turn it into a video, upload the video and then compress the copy that is on your blade.
Ok, sorry about that. I'm back. Is the Blade compatible if I wanted to put it in a three monitor setup?
I believe so, but you would need some fancy wiring work.
Also, how many ports does it have for usb?
3
Here i'll give you the link to the full page

Ok, and the LEDs also have different colors and fading options right?
Watch that video on the bottom of that page, that should answer all your questions :-)
But like I said, watch for some sales later this week and into next week before you make any purchases.
Ok, thank you. Are there any payment plans, or is it a full, one time payment?
No, there are no payment plans offered on it. However, you can use a credit card and then make payments on the credit :-)
Is that what you did and would recomend?
No I bought my 2 Blade's outright. But many people do use their credit cards, since not many people have 2500 cash laying around.
I would recommend doing the credit way if you can make big payments on it, otherwise you'll die to interest rates.
Do you have a credit card?
Sadly no. I do plan on getting a higher paying job within a few months though. So is working at Razer your full time job?
No, Razer is part time that I do in my spare time. I am a full time Actor, as well as working on a game design degree from Full Sail University. I am also an author and semi-professional League of Legends player.
Congragulations. So when you record league of legends with fraps, I'm assuming you upload it to youtube, what do you use to edit it, or do you upload as is?
I don't use Fraps. I use LoLReplay or Twitch.
Is there anything else I can help you with?
Not really, you pretty much answered all of the questions I had. Thank you, and have a nice day.
Awesome! I'm glad I could help Kyle :-) Getting Razer will be one of the best moments of your life, trust me.
