Razer Blade gaming laptops are some of the most premium machines money can buy, and carry a hefty price to match their stylish looks. Subsequently, it can pay dividends to be on the lookout for Razer Blade deals, sales, and generally research the best prices thoroughly before you commit.
We've put together this handy buyer's guide to tell our readers everything they need to know about these premium machines, plus get them the best prices possible on Razer Blade deals - regardless of which model they're looking for.
We've just updated this page with the latest 2023 Razer Blade 15, Blade 16, and Blade 18 models so you can directly compare them to all the other models on the market right now. We're yet to review these newer models personally here at TechRadar but our initial impression is that they're shaping up to be real contenders thanks to their 13th gen Intel chips and RTX 4000 series graphics cards. Note, however, that they are very pricey at launch and it's likely going to be a while until we see the best Razer Blade deals hit these models.
Overall, these aren't cheap gaming laptop deals by any stretch of the imagination but you'd be surprised at how big discounts can be on some machines. Older models or models about to be superseded in particular can have discounts ranging anywhere between $300 to $800 off (up to £800 off in the UK) - especially around big retail events like Black Friday.
Generally speaking, Razer Blade laptops have quite a few specs for each model, so there's quite a bit of wiggle room if you're not fussed about getting truly top-end components. Bear in mind, however, that you do tend to pay a premium for upgrades like higher refresh rate monitors in general. We've included detailed specs sheets alongside today's Razer Blade deals, and you'll also find detailed reviews with all the information you'll need to weigh up any prospective purchase.

Razer blade laptop deals: 2023 models
Razer has updated the Blade 15 model for 2023, making the machine slightly smaller (15.6 inches down to 15) while also bringing it in line with the competition with the latest Intel chips and RTX 4000 series of graphics cards. With its modest size, the Blade 15 is going to be a good option for most users looking to balance power and portability - especially because it comes in at a lower asking price versus the new Blade 16 and Blade 16 models.
Prices start at $2,499 / £2,499 for the baseline model featuring an RTX 4060 graphics card and Intel Core i7-13800H CPU, while the upgraded RTX 4070 model comes in at $2,799 / £2,849. Note that both models come with a 240Hz QHD 1440p display, 16GB of DDR5 RAM, and a 1TB SSD.
The Razer Blade 16 is one of two new sizes for 2023 alongside the larger 18-inch model, but it's the only model (so far) to feature an interesting dual-mode display option. This particular feature is available on the pricier variants but comes with the distinct advantage of being able to switch between a 120Hz 4K mode and a 240Hz 1440p mode. It's a novel option, and great for those who want to use their machine for both work and gaming.
Specs-wise, the Razer Blade 16 comes kitted out with an Intel Core i9-13950HX on all models and your choice between an RTX 4060, RTX 4070, RTX 4080, or RTX 4090 graphics card. Prices for this model start at $2,699 / £2,699 for the baseline RTX 4060 model with 16GB of DDR5 RAM and a 1TB SSD.
The Razer Blade 18 is another new model for 2023 alongside the smaller Razer Blade 16. Simply put, the Blade 18 is just an upscaled version of that model with the same configurations and no option for the unique dual-mode display.
As the largest gaming laptop Razer has made so far, the Razer Blade 18 is very much aimed at being a desktop replacement. Its relative lack of portability makes it a niche product for sure, but one that's more than capable of offering a comfortable gaming session and more than enough power thanks to the latest components from Nvidia and Intel.
Prices for this model start at $2,899 / £2,899 for the baseline model with an RTX 4060 and Intel Core i9-13950HX. Upgrades include the option to jump up to an RTX 4070, RTX 4080, RTX 4090, and up to 32GB of DDR5 RAM and a 2TB SSD.
Razer blade laptop deals: 2022 models
Our listing for the 2022 Razer Blade 15 model is actually a combination of a late-2021 baseline model and the newest early-2022 advanced model. Sounds a little complicated but it's fairly straightforward - the cheaper 'Base' models come with an Intel Core i7-11800H processor, an RTX 3060 or 3070, and a lower refresh rate monitor. The fancy advanced models come with a choice of the latest 12th gen Intel Core i7 or i9 processors, up to an RTX 3080 Ti for the GPU, and displays with super-speedy refresh rates and resolutions of up to 4K.
The 2022 (late 2021) Razer Blade 15 model starts at $1,799.99 (opens in new tab) for the RTX 3060 model and is a good starting place for anyone looking for a nice balance between price and performance. As a yardstick, it's worth measuring all Razer Blade gaming laptop deals against the latest Blade 15 Base model to determine how much bang for the buck you're getting. If you spot an older model with a $200 discount but an older GPU, it might be worth going for the latest Base model instead.
Generally speaking, discounts on the latest models tend to be fairly rare, even over Black Friday, but you'll often find Razer itself offering freebies and bundles with its latest models. Added up, the overall discount on these bundles doesn't tend to be too great, but it's a good way to get some peripherals on the side.
If you're a power user with seriously deep pockets, then you may want to consider the 2022 Razer Blade 17 - the powerful, most premium, and largest gaming laptop in the brand's latest lineup of machines. This model starts at $2,699 (opens in new tab) / £2,999 (opens in new tab) at launch and is very much aimed at the high-end crowd who want a desktop-like experience.
As with all Razer Blade gaming laptops, the Blade 17 comes with a number of configurations - from an RTX 3060 model with a 165Hz QHD display all the way to an RTX 3080 Ti model with a 144Hz UHD 4K display - the latter of which will set you back an eye-watering $4,299.99 (opens in new tab) at launch. Unlike with the 15.6-inch model, there are no 'Base' models with the Blade 17. Regardless of which model you opt for, you're jumping into the deep end with no compromises in the specs... or the price, unfortunately.
Gaming laptop deals on the latest Razer Blade 17 models tend to be pretty rare at launch. Generally speaking, you'll have to wait until the next generation comes out until you can get a really juicy discount. Black Friday tends to be a good time to check in as not only is it traditionally the best time for laptop deals overall, but the next generation of Razer Blade machines are often just around the corner at that point. We've seen discounts range all the way up to $1,300 off in previous years, although it will be quite some time until an RTX 3000 series model hits this kind of discount.
Razer blade laptop deals: 2021 models
2021 has heralded a new direction from Razer with a brand new Blade model featuring two never before seen features - a 14-inch screen and AMD-based CPU. Very much an answer to the ever-popular Asus Zephyrus G14, the new Razer Blade 14 straddles the gap between the lighter, more 'ultrabookey' Stealth 13 and the standard Razer Blade 15.
While slightly smaller than your average bear, the Razer Blade 14 still rocks that beautiful aluminum chassis and puts out very respectable performance indeed. It's far, far more powerful than the Stealth 13 and only slightly behind the Razer Blade 15 - depending on the configuration of the latter. Amazingly, at just 0.66 inches thick and under 4 lbs in weight, the Razer Blade 14 doesn't lose much portability as a trade-off for that power. In short, it's a very compelling choice if you've got the coin to spend and want something that's going to fit in your bag while not sacrificing performance. Bear in mind, however, that it does have a much bigger power brick than the Stealth 13.
Debuting at $1,799.99 (opens in new tab) / £1,799 (opens in new tab) also makes the Razer Blade 14 surprisingly good value on its baseline RTX 3060 model too. That said, upgrade that 144Hz screen to a 160Hz QHD panel and either to an RTX 3070 or 3080 and the costs quickly spiral, however. It's also worth noting that these expensive GPUs won't be drawing a huge amount of power compared to cards in similarly specced-out 15.6-inch machines either, so if you're looking for raw performance, consider the Blade 15.
Savings-wise, we don't expect the Razer Blade 14 to be on sale this year due to the demand, hype, and relative youth of the model. That said, it could definitely be worth keeping an eye out over Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
The 2021 Razer Blade 15 was last generation's flagship model from the premium laptop brand but it's still a great pick. Not only does it have the same GPU set up as the early 2022 models (RTX 3000 series), but we expect prices to really drop now as Amazon and Razer itself look to clear out old stock.
As with all the Razer Blade laptops on our list this week you'll be getting a stunning aluminum chassis here, alongside your choice of various configurations for both components and display types. Specifically featured on the 2021 releases are the shiny new RTX 3000 series graphics cards from Nvidia, which are a significant bump up in both power and value from last year's RTX 2000 cards.
At launch, prices started at $1,699 (opens in new tab) / £1,599 (opens in new tab) for the baseline model, which rocks an RTX 3060 graphics card, Intel Core i7-10750H, 16GB of RAM 512GB SSD, and a 144Hz refresh rate display. Considering that's only $200 more expensive than last year's baseline model with a GTX 1660Ti and 256GB SSD, it's actually quite good value. Unfortunately, there are no options for AMD-based systems right now, which makes the Blade 15 a little more dated than the new 14 model.
Of course, if you really wanted to go all-out on your configuration, prices range all the way up to $2,999.99 (opens in new tab) / £2,799.99 (opens in new tab) for the RTX 3080 version. For that significant upcharge, you'll also bag yourself a 360Hz display, 8-core i7-10875H processor, 32GB of RAM, and a 1TB SSD - absolutely bonkers specs for 1080p gaming.
Due to the release of the new Razer Blade 14 and the later Blade 15's, we'd say this model is definitely one to watch if you're on the hunt for a bargain. Historically, we've seen price cuts range all the way up to $600 / £600 over big sales events like Black Friday, so there's potential to get a lot of laptop for your money here.
If you're looking to balance gaming, productivity, and portability, the Razer Blade Stealth 13 is going to be your laptop of choice. At just 3.11 lbs and 13.3" across, it's absolutely tiny compared to nearly any other gaming laptop on the market currently and can easily be lugged around in your backpack or luggage.
There is a trade-off with that small footprint, however, and as you would expect from such a small notebook-sized laptop, the specs aren't quite as beefy as those on the other models. With a GTX 1650 Ti, Intel Core i7-1165G7, 16GB of RAM, and 512GB SSD, you're still getting plenty of power here, but it's definitely more suited to lighter gaming as opposed to pushing incredible framerates on the latest games.
Being a Razer laptop too, it's also kinda pricey with a launch asking price of $1,799.99 (opens in new tab) / £1,899.99 (opens in new tab) for the baseline version. That's a big premium to pay for such a machine, however, the 13.3-inch aluminum chassis is absolutely stunning and a match for any MacBook right now when it comes to style. You're also securing a 120Hz refresh rate as a standard option on the baseline spec alongside that beefy processor, which makes it a significant upgrade over the 2020 variant (which you can read about below).
The new Razer Blade 17 Pro is, without a doubt, one of the most premium gaming laptops you can buy right now. It's big and proud, and has some absolutely eye-watering specs on even its baseline configurations which make it the Razer machine most suitable for a direct desktop replacement.
Of course, such power doesn't come cheap, and you'll be looking at a starting price of $2,299.99 (opens in new tab) / £2,199.99 (opens in new tab) for the baseline specifications alone. For that price, you'll bag yourself a stunning 165Hz QHD display, RTX 3060, Intel Core i7-10850H, a 512GB SSD, and 16GB of RAM - the latter two being easily expandable with the roomy chassis.
Things escalate pretty quickly from there all the way to the very top-end spec, which currently carries a price tag of $3,599.99 (opens in new tab) / £3,299.99 (opens in new tab). Absolutely ludicrous, however, with an RTX 3080, 32GB of RAM, 1TB SSD, Intel Core i7-10875H, and 4K touch-screen display, this is a machine that carries essentially no compromises and offers incredible performance.
Are Razer laptops worth it?
Ask any Razer Blade laptop owner whether it's worth it and you'll probably get a resounding yes - they're definitely a brand with a loyal, albeit niche following. That said, for the average gamer who just wants a machine that has a good performance to price ratio, they're definitely a harder sell when it comes to value.
Let's face it, you're definitely paying extra for style points here as opposed to outright performance. That alone will put some off, however, for others it's more than worth it considering how gaudy most gaming laptops are. Subsequently, you'll probably have to weigh up how much that premium experience means to you when you're choosing a product.
Razer laptops are, by all accounts, stunning machines with chassis' that rival even the plushest ultrabooks from Apple and Dell. Other gaming brands, while catching up, definitely struggle to match them, and it's a marvel that Razer can pack so much power into cases so thin. So, if you want something that looks great, runs well, and comes in a fairly light footprint, Razer laptops may just be worth that extra premium for you.
Is now a good time to buy a Razer Blade laptop?
Right now's a pretty good time to be checking out Razer Blade prices we'd say. Alongside a slew of great new releases for 2023, older Razer Blade machines should now be falling in price as retailers look to clear out that old stock. Subsequently, you've got quite a lot of choice right now when it comes to Razer Blade deals, although admittedly you could be waiting for a while for a big discount on a 2023 model.
Other peak times to be checking out Razer prices are over the big sales events of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Both these events come much later in the year, but as a rule of thumb, tend to be the time when online retailers offer up the lowest prices on electronics in general.
