The new black and green Razer Blade RZ09-01301E21 is a top-tier sleek and stylish gaming laptop with a superior luxurious design of an aluminium case that is only 0.70 inch thin, a 14 inch QHD+ touchscreen, the latest NVIDIA GTX 970M graphics for the best of gaming, high end quad core Intel i7-4720HQ processor and 256GB Solid State Drive- seems to be offering a lot in terms of power, performance, functionality and design. It is designed with advanced gamers in mind, as the engineers and designers have obviously put in a lot of thought and effort to come up with one of the best gaming laptops on the market, to impress the pickiest gamers worldwide.

Razer Blade RZ09 has the quad core 4th generation Intel i7-4720HQ at 2.6 speed that moves up to 3.6GHz with turbo boost when required by those very demanding tasks and stays at base speed in other times to save on energy use and hyper threading for 4 cores and 8 threads kind of operation for improved usage of CPU- eight virtual cores for the best of gaming, massive 16 GB DDR3L SDRAM memory at 1600MHz to multitask a good number of demanding apps, software and browsers, 256 GB SSD with up to 4 times more speed than the regular hard drives to boot-up and load games faster (using the SATA M.2 standard) and 64-bit Windows 8.1 operating system.

IGZO- Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide technology 14 inch QHD+ LED-backlit capacitive multitouch screen with 3200 x 1800 pixel maximum screen resolution (a total of 5.76 million pixels so it is impossible to notice any individual pixels), 350-nit brightness, wide viewing angles and the dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M with 3000MB GDDR5 VRAM memory (second fastest after the GTX 980M) means you’ll experience super sharp and amazingly clear realistic images, very high contrast, saturated, consistent and vivid colours and the extreme / advanced gaming performance- super smooth and fast at the highest settings and resolutions and high frame rates per second, even for the latest 3D games of 2014 and 2015, so you will have no problems playing the older or the latest titles smoothly and blur-free. The built-in graphics card is the Intel HD 4600 that is roughly 30% faster than the HD 4000 and will help preserve the battery life when you’re not playing games, along with the NVIDIA Optimus technology. And imagine that you’re getting such superior screen and picture quality and gaming performance on a laptop that is only 0.7 inch thick.

Razer Blade 14 inch QHD+ Touchscreen Gaming Laptop RZ09-01301E21 Review
Precision cut CNC aluminium body, beautiful, premium feeling, luxurious and durable black and green Razer Blade RZ09 with the Razer logo in the centre on the lid weighs 4.5 pounds and measures 13.60 x 0.70 x 9.30 inches, so it is both really slim and lightweight and highly portable as a compact laptop, despite being the most powerful Blade laptop ever. Design Touch Point Thermal Engineering and localised heating keep heat away from the parts of the notebook that you commonly touch and despite all that power of this super gaming laptop and even when playing the most demanding games you won’t feel the heat. It has a 2MP FHD webcam, an integrated 70Wh lithium ion polymer battery, gaming level green glow backlit anti-ghosting keyboard designed for extreme gaming, 3 x USB 3.0 ports, 802.11ac fast wireless with wide coverage, Bluetooth 4.0 You have the stereo speakers at the front of the case and according to rumours the sound performance is not as good as the picture or gaming performance.

Conclusion: Razer Blade RZ09-01301E21 is claimed to be the most powerful ultraportable gaming laptop in the world, with its super powerful quad core Intel i7-4720HQ processor, 256GB Solid State Drive, 16GB DDR3L SDRAM memory, NVIDIA GTX 970M, QHD+ touchscreen with 262 pixels per inch and it simply screams luxury in its CNC aluminium body and very pretty design with the clever use of black and green. You won’t find any junkware or bloatware that is common to most other laptops and that you may need to uninstall. Sound is not that overly impressive and the battery life is not very long but many gamers will prefer to use headphones and we are not aware of any powerful gaming machines with very long lasting batteries. It operates quietly and stays cool thanks to the dual-fan cooling system which is made possible by the lack of optical disk drive. So we like pretty much everything else about it but naturally these impressive specs and features don’t come cheaply. We do not have the model in front of us but judging by the expert and customer reviews, this is one special piece of art- beautiful, functional, durable and super powerful.
