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 and up to a blistering 360Hz Full HD display. Of course, the starting price reflects the larger size and more powerful specs.
The base version comes with an Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, a 512GB SSD, an NVIDIA RTX 3060 GPU, and a 17.3-inch 165Hz QHD display. You can throw some extra cash at Razer to get up to 32GB of RAM, 1TB storage, and a 3070 or 3080 GPU. You can also opt for a 120Hz 4K touch display or that sweet 360Hz Full HD panel.
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 expensive, bigger, and overpowered to many. 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 processor, 16GB of RAM, and one of three GPUs (GeForce RTX 3060, RTX 3070, or RTX 3080). The advanced version has a 10th Gen Intel Core i7 or i9 processor, 16-32GB 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 a display with a 144Hz Full HD, a 165Hz QHD, a 240Hz QHD, a 360Hz Full HD, or a 60Hz OLED panel with 100% DCI-P3 color fidelity. The advanced model can have an incredible 360Hz FHD, a 240Hz QHD, or a 4K 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. Opting for the Full HD, 120Hz version will leave you with no touchscreen. But you can get touch capabilities if you choose the 60Hz Full HD OLED panel or the 4K version with a 60Hz refresh rate. These all come with an NVIDIA 1650 TI, which is not as good as any of the RTX 30 series, but it can get you gaming just fine.
4. Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition (2020)
Razer laptops are powerful and very well built, but the bright green snake logo and deep black color can be a bit much. You can tell these are gaming laptops from a mile away, and that’s not a good look for an office or a serious meeting. Those who want something more discrete can get the Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition, and the 2020 version is potent. 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 it’s easily the best out of all Razer laptops. It would be great for a creative, a gamer, or anyone who requires plenty of power to run resource-intensive apps. It also happens to look amazing!
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 60Hz 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.
If you really want to get the Razer Book but still want the full power of a dedicated GPU, you can also get the Razer Core GPU enclosure and put your own desktop-level GPU in it. The Core can then connect to the laptop via Thunderbolt at home, but keep a mobile laptop when on the go.
