TL;DR: As of Sept. 1, the latest Razer Blade 15 Base Gaming Laptop (512GB) is on sale on Amazon for just $1,399.99, saving you $400 on list price.
September 2020 is a tricky time to be looking for a new gaming laptop. Since Black Friday is a long way away (and we still have no word yet on when Prime Day is happening), you can easily get stuck paying full price for a new machine.
We’re here to say: Not on our watch. We have tracked down a 512GB configuration of the latest Razer Blade 15 Base Edition Gaming Laptop on sale on Amazon for a mere $1,399.99, or $400 off its suggested retail price of $1,799.99. For those keeping track at home, that’s the cheapest it has been since its release in April.
Mashable hasn’t officially reviewed this particular version of the Blade 15, but tech reporter Ray Wong had some great things to say when he got his hands on the 2018 base model, calling it “damn near close to a perfect gaming laptop” in his 4/5-star review.
The 2020 iteration has kept its predecessor’s 15.6-inch, 144Hz Full HD display and durable aluminum body, but features some upgrades under the hood — specifically, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 (a stellar mid-range graphics card for 1080p gaming) and a fancy 10th-Gen Intel Core i7-10750H processor for super smooth gameplay.
