Razer Blade 15
Razer makes some of the most popular gaming-based laptops in the market. One factor that makes the Razer Blade 15, a premium gaming device, is a superb keyboard with single-zone RGB lighting. So, if you are looking for a competitive gaming experience on the go, it is an excellent choice.
The main reason for the high performance of the laptop is the 10th Gen Intel Core i7 processor itself. This i7-10750H chip has a base clock speed of 2.6GHz and can turbo boost up to 5GHz when you want to load a graphics-intensive game. To complement the performance, Razer has also added the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060, which has 6GB of GDDR6 VRAM, which is adequate for most AAA titles.
To stay on the safe side of gaming performance, this machine packs 16GB of DDR4 RAM, which can be useful if you are into heavy multitasking as well. Because the device ships with 512GB of full SSD storage, you don’t have to worry about transfer speeds or booting-up times. It also helps that Razer has kept the Windows 10 build free of bloatware.
This variant of Razer Blade 15 comes with a 15.6-inch Full HD panel, which naturally has a resolution of 1920 x 1080. On the bright side, the IPS panel has an improved refresh rate of 144Hz, which accompanies the high-performance CPU and GPU in giving you the snappiest gaming performance in the price bracket. The OLED panel does a commendable job of color reproduction as well.
It uses the Razer Chroma keyboard with single-zone RGB lighting. Besides providing a far superior typing experience, you can choose from millions of colors to illuminate the keys. Using the Synapse 3 software from Razer, you can create customized backlighting profiles as well. Besides, the glass trackpad does an excellent job with navigation and light gaming.
Elegant is the word we would use to describe the design aesthetic of the Razer Blade 15. The company hasn’t compromised the looks or class while trying to make one of the portable gaming laptops. It has a total weight of 4.69 pounds but is just 0.78 inches thick. While keeping this design, Razer has included many USB ports and a full-sized HDMI port, among others.
Compared to other laptops that offer a similar performance level, the battery backup on this machine is surprisingly high. A single charge gives you up to 7 hours of mixed usage, but it will drop if you’re gaming all the time.
Acer Predator Helios 300
If you are looking for a fully-fledged gaming laptop that packs multi-zone keyboard backlighting, you should have a look at the Acer Predator Helios 300. This device is a perfect choice for gamers and content creators who prefer a streamlined environment for performance.
Powering the device is the Intel Core i7-10750H which provides smooth and streamlined performance. It has a base clock speed of 2.6GHz but can reach up to 5GHz if demanding situations arise. Acer has also packed an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 2060, which gives us 6GB of VRAM. It means you won’t have trouble handling resource-intensive games like PUBG, Fortnite, Minecraft, World of Warcraft, League of Legends, etc.
There are no compromises made when it comes to memory and storage, though. This Predator device comes with 16GB of DDR4 RAM and 512GB of full SSD storage. In particular, the NVMe SSDs can provide some of the best speeds while gaming and transferring data. Apart from the essential Predator-exclusive tools for power control and customization, the Windows 10 installation is free of bloatware.
Probably the real deal about Acer Predator Helios 300 would be the display module. The 15.6-inch Full HD panel not only produces super-accurate content but a resolution of 1920 x 1080 and an improved refresh rate of 144Hz can make your gaming sessions snappier than ever. On top of this, the panel boasts a response time of 3ms as well.
This machine comes with a multi-zone lit-up keyboard. This means you can customize which backlighting appears in different zones. You also get illuminated WASD keys and two dedicated keys to enable Turbo and Predator Sense, respectively. I recommend this multi-zone keyboard if you’d prefer customizing the environment even further.
Acer says that the laptop can offer up to 6 hours of backup on a single charge. Considering the robust set of hardware that it has inside, I think it’s a reasonable figure, indeed. Of course, if you won’t be playing games all the time, you can improve the backup even further.
