Amazon Prime Day is here, which means Prime members can score major savings on electronic devices both big and small. During the two days of the event (July 11 and 12), we expect to see some of the biggest discounts of the summer on popular laptop models, with some already on sale right now. One of the most notable discounted items is the editor-recommended Razer Blade 15 gaming laptop, which is a whopping $1,200 cheaper than normal for the event.
This is device is a personal favorite for test editor and PC gamer Hunter Fenollol, since the laptop is “lightweight, powerful, and has the best display panel on a laptop screen.” You can play games and edit videos on the go without sacrificing accuracy or image quality. The 3840 x 2560 resolution allows you to see even the most minute details, with everything in rich color. It’s a favorite of ours, especially due to its relatively thin frame compared to its capability.
The Blade 15 comes equipped with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 graphics processor, which works faster than the RTX 2070 version, so you’ll get 100 frames per second at a high resolution. The Intel core processor works quickly and efficiently and can accommodate even the most demanding games.
More From Popular Mechanics
This model has upgraded internal cooling compared to previous versions, with more exhaust fins and a larger liquid capacity for a quieter and cooler run time. The keyboard doesn’t entirely live up to the standard of a pro-level gaming laptop, but it still offers aesthetic and style—plus you can always grab a keyboard to use instead.
You won’t want to miss out on this Prime Day deal, so shop now while supplies last.
