We got our hands on the highest-end SKU of the Razer Blade 14, which is equipped with the dragon range 45W Ryzen 9 7940HS CPU and a GeForce RTX 4070 GPU (140W TGP). While other SKUs are available, they all come with the same 240 Hz 2560x1600 IPS panel; it has a decent resolution, a fast 240Hz refresh rate, and G-Sync certification.  With this screen size, the windows DPI is set at 150% though.


Weighing in at roughly 2.4kg, the laptop impresses immediately upon checking its specifications. The display, however, is an IPS panel with good brightness (just over 500 nits) and contrast (close to 1000:1).



The keyboard and trackpad deserve praise. The keyboard offers a pleasing tactile sensation, a streamlined number pad, and convenient function keys (including volume controls) that enhance the typing experience. The keys light up when pressed.


The Blade 14 keyboard proves to be a wise option as it types decently and gives enough accentuation during gaming sessions. 


Though very adequate, the trackpad is somewhat significant, which may not suit everyone's preferences. However, it excels at avoiding unintentional inputs from your palm, guaranteeing precise control for gaming or other activities.


The top lid is adorned with a Razer logo/badge, but the design looks unbalanced compared to the rest of the machine.  Can you comprehend that it has an 8-core Ryzen 7000 processor, 16GB, m.2 NVMe SSD, and a mobile GeForce RTX 4070?
