New Razer Blade 4K OLED Gaming Laptop Is Shockingly Expensive
Razer is making some big changes to its Blade lineup of laptops, including a new 4K OLED that features a price tag so high it’ll knock your socks off. Now, that’s not to say that it’s overpriced for what it offers, but it still hits you pretty hard when you realize that you’ll need to spend as much as some people invest in a used car in order to get your hands on one.
New Razer Blade 15 Models
There are quite a few new configurations offered with the new Razer Blade 15, but the one we’re really interested in is the 4K OLED touchscreen model. The screen should be absolutely gorgeous with such a high resolution and advanced tech. Of course, to have such a screen, Razer needed to include a powerful GPU, and it has included the new NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 2080 in the laptop, which should allow it to run most of today’s advanced games without a problem.
For gamers who are less concerned with resolution and more interested in speed, Razer is also offering a 1080p version with a 240Hz refresh rate. That display will allow gamers to get a higher framerate at the cost of the 4K screen and OLED technology.
Additionally, the processor powering the new Blade is a 9th-generation Intel Core i7-9750H CPU clocked at 2.6GHz with Max Turbo speeds up to 4.5GHz. It also includes 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. Whether you choose the 4K OLED or the 240HZ screen, you’ll get the same level of power from the processor, GPU, RAM, and SSD.
How Much Is New the Blade 15?
Obviously, all that power doesn’t come cheap, the 4K OLED model sells for a staggering $3,299.99. Gamers looking for the higher refresh rate can save a little bit (since there’s no OLED screen) and spend $2,999.99.
There are also less exciting configurations that don’t push gaming technology as far, and those start at $1,999.99. Either way, these are beasts of gaming laptops , and they come with price tags to match.
