Today Razer announced its all recent Blade gaming laptop and as you could expect, it is now more powerful than ever. However, what you might have not predicted is that it is also cheaper. The compact laptop comes with a 14.0-inch IGZO QHD+ display with Light Emitting Diode (LED) backlight and capacitive multi-touch. It is encased in a precision slit CNC aluminum chassis that is just 0.71 inches thick. It is also surprisingly light at just 4.25 pounds.

But, as with any Razer product, the real treat is what lies inside. The recent Blade is powered by the latest sixth generation Intel Core i7 quad-core processor and has a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M GPU with 6GB of video memory. The specs sheet continues with 16GB of quick dual-channel DDR4 Random-Access Memory (RAM) and up to 512GB of SSD storage of the PCIe M.2 variety, also extremely fast. And blazing network communication is ensured by a Killer Wireless-AC module. It is powered by a built-in 70Wh battery and comes with a compact 165W charger.

Other notable features of the model include a Universal Serial Bus (USB) Type-C port, which houses a Thunderbrecent 3 connection for speeds of up to 40 Gbps, as well as a DisplayPort, all under one roof. In addition, there are also three Universal Serial Bus (USB) 3.0 ports and a dedicated HDMI 1.4b interface. Naturally, you also acquire Razer's stunning Chroma keyboard with 16.8 million color options for each key backlight and Razer Synapse technology for advanced key remapping and macros.

As an extra bonus for a accurate gaming experience, Razer is also promising a recent external GPU extender for the Blade. Called the Razer Core, it will allow you to easily add a desktop GPU and and extra four Universal Serial Bus (USB) 3.0 ports and ethernet to the laptop, all with just one cable.

Pre-orders for the impressive laptop kick off today and as already mentioned, it is now more affordable than ever. Previously costing $2,399 for a QHD+, the Razer Blade now starts at $1,999 for the 256GB model and $2199 for the 512GB one. Shipments are expected to start in April.
