Those looking for their next gaming laptop should check out the discounts on the Razer Blade that Amazon has right now. Most notable is the 2020 Razer Blade Stealth, which dropped to a record $1,400. That’s $600 off its regular price, and given that one of our biggest complaints about the laptop was its high price tag, which is a lot if you’re looking for a powerful gaming machine in a very portable package.
Buy the Razer Blade Stealth on Amazon – $1,400
We were impressed with the versatility of the Blade Stealth – it’s a gaming laptop powerful enough to run Note and watch It’s 1080p and 70fps, but it’s light enough to put in your backpack and go to a coffee shop to do some work. Featuring a sleek yet sturdy design and weighing just three pounds, it’s much lighter than most gaming consoles. The special model for sale has a 10th generation Core i7 processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q graphics, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. All of that should save a lot of power in most situations, and the package is enhanced by the 13-inch 4K touchscreen that comes with it. Depending on how you use it, you should get about eight hours of battery life with Stealth as well.
There are a few other 2020 models on sale on Amazon, and they seem to differ from those available on Razer’s own site at the moment. There is the Razer Blade Pro 17, which has a price tag of $900 and drops to $2,300. This is for a model with a 10th Gen Core i7 octa-core processor, NVIDIA RTX 2080 Super Max-Q graphics, 16GB of RAM, a 512GB SSD, and a 17.3-inch 1080p display with a 300Hz refresh rate. Razer Blade 15 Advanced with 10th Gen Core i7 Octa-Core processor, RTX 2070 Super Max-Q graphics, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, 15.6-inch 1080p 300Hz screen drops below $1800 also. We’ve seen it drop in the past, but that’s still a pretty good bargain at over $800.
