The mature gaming laptop continues to impress. For the same price as the base 15″ MacBook Pro, you get a 14″ 3200×1800 touchscreen, a 6GB GTX970M GPU, RGB LED backlit keys and a USB-C port to connect it to the Razer Core and other peripherals.
THE BEST Laptops
The ZenBook 3 has Apple squarely in its sights. It weighs just 2lb and is just 0.46″ when closed, making it lighter and thinner than a MacBook. Yet it packs serious specs, including a 12.5″ 1080p display and up to a Core i7 CPU, 16GB RAM and 1TB SSD. Drops Q3 2016 for $999+.
Acer’s 2-in-1 Windows 10 notebook packs the power of a proper Intel Core i3, i5 or i7 CPU, and a quiet liquid cooling system. The 12″ IPS display offers 2160×1440 resolution, and the system includes a keyboard. An optional active pen adds drawing capabilities. Drops 6/2016.
We’ve been on the hunt for a laptop that could keep up with the daily demands of creating The Awesomer. Thanks to its powerful 6th-gen Intel core i7 CPU, insanely sharp 15″ 4K display, and great build quality, the 2016 Dell XPS 15 is our officially our machine of choice.
We’ve been building The Awesomer on the Dell XPS 15 laptop, a true MacBook Pro killer. Our system packs a sharp and accurate 4K slim-bezel display, 6th-gen Intel Core i7 CPU, Nvidia GTX 960M graphics, Thunderbolt 3, 16GB RAM, a 512GB SSD, and is crazy fast for work or play.
Unlike the other Razer Blades, the 12.5″ Blade Stealth is an ultrabook – it’s thin, light and lasts up to 8h per charge, but it only has integrated graphics. To make up for that, Razer made the Core, an add-on that lets you connect desktop GPUs to the laptop via a Thunderbolt 3 cable.
