The continued influx of popularity in the PC gaming sector has lead to ever-more-impressive gaming rigs with increasingly capable performance in incredibly thin packages, such as Razer’s newest iteration of the Blade 17 laptop.

Boasting better performance and power efficiency, this new lightweight laptop has been outfitted with Intel’s latest 8-core 11th-generation Core i9-11900H — the brand’s first-ever 10-nanometer gaming PC chip — which ultimately affords 4.9GHz speeds while only drawing 65 watts of power. Other highlights include an 8 or 16GB RTX 3080 GPU, a 17” 4K touchscreen that’s offered in a trio of specs (with the highest being a 360Hz 1080p unit), an RGB-backlit keyboard, immersive THX Spatial Audio compatibility, a full HD 1080p webcam, a quad microphone setup, a 70.5WHr battery, as much as 4TB NVMe SSD, 32GB of 3,200 MHz Dual-Channel DDR4 RAM, and a generous selection of ports, including HDMI, USB 3.2 Type A, Thunderbolt 4, and a UHS-III SD card reader. Tipping the scales at just 6.06lbs and measuring less than 20mm thick, the Razer Blade 17 laptop is available for preorder now, with pricing starting from $2,400.

Purchase: $2,400+
