The best Razer laptops:
Editor’s note: We will update this list of the best Razer laptops as new devices launch.
1. Razer Blade Pro 17 (2021)
Razer kicked off its early 2021 refreshes with the high-end Razer Blade Pro. The 17-inch model now packs 10th-gen Intel Core hardware as well as a blistering 360Hz Full HD display. Of course, the starting price reflects the larger size and more powerful specs.
For your money, you’ll get a 10th-generation Intel Core i7 CPU with Turbo Boost, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 GPU, and at least 16GB of RAM. You can improve your system all the way up to 64GB of RAM and 2TB of storage. All versions of the Razer Blade Pro come with per-key Razer Chroma setups for up to 16.8 million colors.
Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0 help to complete the experience and the Blade Pro 17 comes in the same matte black finish as the Blade 15.
2. Razer Blade 15 (2021)
Razer’s Blade Pro 17 is great, but it is very expensive, bigger, and to many, overpowered. The Razer Blade 15 strikes a better balance between price, portability, and power. Their latest 2021 models come improved too, giving you a bit more for your money.
This year you can opt between a “base model” and an “advanced model.” The base model comes with a 10th generation Intel Core i7-10750H processor, 16GB of RAM, and one of two GPUs (GeForce RTX 3060 or RTX 3070). There is an advanced version with a 10th Gen Intel Core i7-10875H processor, 16GB of RAM, and your pick between the same set of GPUs.

Display capabilities can vary, as it goes with Razer laptops. The base model can have either 144Hz Full HD screen or an OLED panel with 100% DCI-P3 color fidelity. If you need more, the advanced model can have an incredible 300Hz Full HD display or an OLED panel. And if the smaller 15-inch display isn’t enough, you can always check our list of the best monitors linked above.
3. Razer Blade Stealth 13 (2021) laptop
Razer has released yet another improvement to the Blade Stealth 13 laptop in 2021. This time, the company has upgraded the processor to an 11th generation Intel Core i7 processor. You also get 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage.
The screen comes in a few different specifications as well. You can opt for a Full HD display with a 60Hz refresh rate with touch capabilities. Opting for the Full HD, 120Hz version will leave you with no touchscreen. The new model $1,799, but you can get the early 2020 version at a discount if you don’t mind a 10th generation Intel Core processor.
4. Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition (2020)
Razer laptops are powerful and very well built, but the bright green snake logo can be a bit much. You can tell these are gaming laptops from a mile away. Those who want something more discrete can get the Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition, and its 2020 version is extremely powerful. Of course, that means you’ll pay a pretty penny for your upgrade.
For starters, it comes with the 10th-generation Intel Core i7-10875H. This chip is accompanied by 32GB of RAM, a 1TB SSD, and a powerful NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 Studio Edition GPU. The 4K touchscreen also has a 100% DCI-P3 color accuracy and is factory calibrated.
This is one hell of a machine, and easily the best out of all Razer laptops.
5. Razer Book 13
If you’re looking to get one of the best Razer laptops, but you’re more interested in an everyday powerhouse, the Razer Book 13 is your best bet. It’s a smaller laptop with a more elegant design. Not to mention, it’s one of the most affordable Razer laptops you can currently get.
Specs include a 13.4-inch Full HD display, an 11th-gen Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage at its base configuration. The processor can be upgraded to an Intel Core i7, you can jump to 16GB of RAM, and the storage tops out at 512GB.
The only downside to the Razer Book 13 is that it comes with no discrete graphics. Instead, Razer is going with the Intel Iris Xe Graphics. Regardless, the Intel Iris Xe GPU is integrated into the new 11th generation Core processors and should offer a major boost in performance compared to previous Intel integrated graphics solutions. This means it should be a pretty good offer for moderate gaming and intensive tasks.
