in the sense of gaming performance you get for your money - big no.
This is the gaming performance of an 1000$ laptop.

The laptops quality is good and all, but there isn't a reason to buy if you are mainly interested in playing.

Getting the Razer Blade is not about getting the most bang fore the buck in a gaming laptop, there are better options elsewhere (Sager, MSI). The Blade is much more4 about aesthetics, the thing that a laptop looks more like a laptop than a desktop-replacement that needs 4 fna and gets really hot.

So, if you are looking at the Blade as the best offer available, then no
But if you are looking for a good looking laptop than you can move from one side of your room to the other and that doesn't burns your jeans while you are using it, then go ahead and buy the Blade, the hardware is there, and it can play games at decent resolutions, so the choice is up to you

Sounds like it's for you if you're more interested in form than function and have more money than you know what to do with.

The blade is a sort of the replacement for the discontinued 17 macbook pro.. and it might technically fit the gap of an ultrabook 17" laptop.. but if you were to buy the blade, be sure to weigh in the cost although it may look good.. be sure to ask yourself can it play the games you want at high res for the price...

It's basically fitting higher end parts into an ultra book body. Obviously, ultra books normally run you for a lot more money, and there's no difference here. If you need something portable and sleek, it'd be nice. If not, it's not worth it.

You're basically asking is an ultra book worth the extra. It's debatable and purely personal preference.

For the price of that, you could get a laptop with identical specs and an entirely seperate desktop with great specs too!

What other laptops would you suggest for the function of a high performance gaming laptop
