New Razer Blade 15 announced alongside Limited Edition Mercury White version

Razer has announced a new lineup for the Razer Blade 15 gaming laptop.

With the addition of a gigabit ethernet port and dual storage, the lower-priced revision looks to be a very welcome improvement to an already proven machine. The base model’s new storage makeup consists of an m.2 SSD paired with a 2.5-inch HDD and both are upgradable.

Starting at $1,599, the new Razer Blade 15 houses an impressive list of specs under it’s beautiful Razer CNC aluminium chassis. An 8th Gen Intel Core i7-8750H 6-core processor, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 Max-Q GPU, 16 GB of upgradeable RAM, and a 60Hz Full-HD screen power the thin and stylish gaming laptop.

The new Razer Blade 15 base model will become available October 10th in the US, Canda and Chine from the official Razer website and select retailers. Europeans and those in other Asia-Pacific countries will have to wait until November 2018 to get their hands on the machine.

Razer’s co-founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan said during the conference, “ With the Razer Blade 15 we created the world’s smallest 15.6-inch gaming laptop. We listened to feedback from our fans and we have expanded.”
