    A laptop with good quality/performance/price

    The Good Stuff:

    -Great gaming performance while gaming on larger games which run smooth and fast.

    -It is very thin and light for a gaming laptop. Its easy to carry around while using it. Website says its 4.2 pounds, but I feel surprisingly light for a gaming laptop with an RTX3070.

    -Lots of ports. It has 3 USB ports, one Thunderbolt 4 (type C) port, and an SD card reader slot. This is great since I like to plug in controller and charge my phone from my computer, so I will still have at least one port available without needing to get a USB hub.

    -The battery lasts a long time. Although the battery is light but it lasts me over 8 hours while using it for school, which is great, so I don’t need to find a place to plug in during class.

    -The bezel is tiny. My old laptop had a pretty thick boarder around the screen and its looks so sleek with barely any boarder.

    -The keyboard is mechanical. Unlike most laptop keyboards that I have tried in store, this one feels great. Its probably my second favorite thing about this laptop, I can’t see myself going back to a membrane laptop keyboard after this one.

    The Bad Parts:

    -The webcam isn’t great but still ok. I wouldn’t use it to stream off of.

    -Power and HDMI plugs into the back. I prefer them to be on my left, but its just my personal preference.

    -Fans can get loud. Its probably normal, but fans can get loud when gaming.

    Best windows laptop for work and game

    I am a student and a gamer and this laptop perfectly suits my needs. I often code and do data analysis for work, which requires a lot of processing power. I have been able to analyze data very quickly with this laptop. Gaming performance is superb as well. I currently do not have any issues or complaints. The keyboard takes a bit of time to get use to. I love that I can change the settings for the CPU and GPU through the synapse app depending on whether I am working (prolonging the battery life) or I am gaming (needing maximum power). The fan noise is definitely there when gaming but it is not loud or annoying.

    Tips:

    1. Update your NVIDIA driver and make sure to dedicate the graphic settings to the 3070. Do not select “auto select”. This will greatly enhances your gaming performance. I didn’t know this at first and most of my games were laggy until I made this change.

    2. Get a skin for your computer. I got one from dbrand and it makes it look more sleek. I added a sticker to hide the Razer logo.

    3. Get a gaming laptop cooler. I got the 1stplayer C6 and it works great. I no longer have to touch the hot surface and keyboard while gaming. It definitely makes the whole case cooler.

    You get what you pay for

    Definitely not the most affordable laptop out there, but this is definitely worth it! I love the look, the finger smudges aren’t as bad as previous years.. this beast ram everything I threw at it at max settings, flawlessly. The fan, while loud, isn’t as loud as some of the other laptops I’ve used, but this should be expected with this much power in a small profile.

    If you have the means to get this laptop, I highly recommend it.

    Pricy Performance

    TL;DR: The RTX 3070 Razer Blade 15 2021 Advanced Model is pricey, but you get what you pay for in both performance and package. If you can afford it and you need a high-powered mobile computer, this is well worth the splurge. This review covers both my general opinions of the laptop, and a few notes on its improvements over last year's RTX 2070 Super-equipped Blade 15 2020 Advanced Model.

    An acknowledgement to start: this is indeed a very expensive laptop. Could you get comparable performance in a self-built desktop for much less? Most definitely (provided that you can find an RTX 30-series card for anywhere close to MSRP - I'm looking at you, eBay scalpers). In my opinion, though, you're paying for the portability, not just the performance, when buying a gaming laptop.

    Out of the box the reason for this high price tag is quickly evident; all those expensive, high-performance components touted by Razer are enclosed in a sleek single-block, precision-milled aluminum chassis, cool to the touch and providing a premium feel definitely not matched by the plastic often found on lower-grade Windows laptops (it compares favorably to family and friends' MacBooks, I've found). The one downside to the black anodized-aluminum finish in previous years has been its status as an absolute fingerprint and smudge magnet; I found myself using the included microfiber cloth to wipe down my laptop after almost every use with last year's model. Razer quietly advertised this year's finish as improving this flaw, and to my pleasant surprise they've followed through - fingerprints appear much less frequently with this new, visually-identical finish. The touch pad is large and satisfyingly responsive, though I prefer using a mouse. The keyboard is nice and clicky; I've heard complaints about the travel depth of the Blade's keyboard but I personally find it a welcome change to the last Dell I used. The beautiful RGB Chroma for the per-key lighting, enabled in the onboard Razer Synapse 3 software, looks gorgeous, and offers more customization options than I'll ever be able to figure out. The slim size of the laptop is lovely; my old laptops, despite having the same screen real estate, look like veritable bricks compared to the Blade, with its slim bezels and small footprint.

    You're spoiled for choice with ports: three zippy USB 3.2 Gen-2 Type-A ports with great transfer speeds, one latest-gen UHS-III SD card reader, an HDMI 2.1 port, two USB-C 3.2 Gen-2 ports (both now Thunderbolt 4-capable) able to power the laptop, a DisplayPort (via USB-C) and a 3.5mm audio jack. (For those comparing to previous models, the changes from last year port-wise were HDMI 2.0b to 2.1, and both UCB-C ports becoming Thunderbolt-capable, conforming to the Thunderbolt 4 standard and not Thunderbolt 3 like previously.) Even the charging cord speaks to the quality of the product, with a thick, wear-and-tear-resistant woven braid cord providing the power this machine needs (side note: battery life is highly dependent on your settings; to maximize it requires a lot of customization). The speakers are good for a laptop, now incorporating THX Spatial Audio for simulated surround sound. They get louder than I'll ever set them to, and the audio is clear, with decently punchy bass and distinct mid and high ranges. If you're gaming, though, you'll probably prefer a pair of headphones when the fans kick in (they're not airplane-takeoff level like some gaming laptops, but certainly audible). I love the 360Hz screen; its blistering refresh rate makes games buttery-smooth and leaves absolutely no screen tearing. I personally prefer this 1080p, high-refresh screen to the lower-refresh, 4K OLED models for gaming, but for the creators out there those options are available (consider, too, the middle ground 240Hz QHD screen options, sadly out of stock at the time I write this). Color accuracy is quite pleasant, with the screen covering 100% of the SRGB standard. The onboard video camera is better than last year's, thankfully. 720p was sad in 2020, but was also rather-disappointingly par for the course with most Windows laptops on the market. This year Razer finally made the jump to 1080p - here's hoping other laptop manufacturers follow suit. The infrared camera works brilliantly for Windows Hello; between the facial recognition and speedy M.2 SSD boot drive, I'm still surprised by how fast I'm logged in. If you'll be doing serious teleconferencing, I recommend a headset with a mic or a dedicated mic over the built-in set, but if you're only talking with friends on Zoom, the newly-improved stock 4-mic array should suffice.

    The performance of the laptop once you dive in is quite satisfying. The Intel 11th-Gen i7 processor is great. While Intel's 11th-Gen desktop processors delivered a lackluster performance increase, their mobile chips gained a marked improvement in single core scores when tested, a larger generational improvement than the last several years. The NVIDIA RTX 3070 graphics card provides just about all the frames I could want. Games run great at high graphics settings; at ultra settings with ray tracing on, Shadow of the Tomb Raider averaged 118 FPS over more than four hours of continuous gameplay last night. This mobile RTX 3070 delivers all the much-hyped performance increases between the 20 and 30-series cards as seen in the desktop variants. The 16GB of dual-channel DDR4 3200MHz RAM is more than enough for my needs, and for memory-heavy games you can download Razer's Cortex software, which optimizes your RAM and diverts it to the game you're playing at the moment by pausing unnecessary background processes. Connectivity is delivered through a new Intel Wi-Fi 6E chip, capable of much higher speeds than AT&T seems to feel like giving me through my modem. Booting on the SSD is incredibly fast, with programs opening quite responsively, and this tier of Advanced model now comes with 1TB out of the box. I added in the 1TB I'd bought to replace the stock 512GB SSD in last year's model, and am now happily sitting on 2TB of storage (Razer makes it easy to upgrade both RAM and storage if you so desire; you can look up tutorials on YouTube).

    I couldn't ask for much better performance than the Blade provides; you can look up professional reviewers for better benchmarks on speed and other performance factors (I'm just a college student here happy with a product).

    Great laptop aside from heat

    Fans will ramp up randomly when on battery, and the chassis tends to get hot when doing anything intensive, but the high power limit on the 3070 makes some killer graphic ability

    Don't buy if you want an external display

    dGPU is only attached to the HDMI 2.1 port. So no Gsync unless get a hard to find HDMI 2.1 external display. No support for USB-C Alt DP with dGPU. Nice looking and fast but crap if you want to use an external monitor. Why they did not put at least a mini DP attached to the dGPU on this machine is beyond me.

    Great for school and casual gaming

    I’ve had this laptop for over two months now and it has been great for my use as a student and casual gamer.

    It’s thin and light enough that I can carry it around campus without causing too much strain and it’s pleasing to the eyes as it doesn’t look too “gamerey.” The build quality is very nice. It’s all metal and nothing feels cheap. There is minimal screen and keyboard flex, if any. Typing feels great, but I’m not too picky about that sort of thing.

    My only gripe functionality wise is after putting the laptop to sleep (not fully shutting it down), there would be a software error where it would not let me login with my fingerprint. If I tried to use my pin, I would still not be able to login. I got tired of this issue so I just turned off the fingerprint and pin, and have just been inputting my password. Seems like a windows/driver error since even if I disable the fingerprint and use just the pin I get this error.

    Gaming wise, I’m a pretty casual gamer. Valorant runs great and looks amazing on the crispy screen. The fans don’t get too loud unless you turn on the “Turbo” mode, which put the fans to the max settings at which they’re really loud. If you have headphones on, however, the fan noise shouldn’t be an issue at all. I would still recommend a cooling pad to go under the laptop while gaming for longevity of the device.

    My last minor complaint is that it’s not able to charge via the USB-C ports. I know it’s a gaming laptop and it requires a high wattage charger to keep it going, but it would’ve been nice to be able to carry a smaller/more portable charger for school. This hasn’t been too much of an issue, however, as it lasts me about 5 hours when browsing the internet.

    Best gamer and designer laptop in slim chassis

    The Predator Triton 500 RTX 3070 overall is an excellent laptop for gamers and designers. With Nvidia's RTX 3070 8GB VRAM, you can set the laptop for 2K gaming with ultra-high settings. The most impressive part is the 2560x1600 2K screen with 165hz 3ms response time, With the RTX 3070 model, which also supports G-SYNC plus Advanced Optimus feature which is completely MISSING on the RTX 3060 bade model. The laptop is a full aluminum build, which is a very solid feel but on the heavy weight side.

    Another run-of-the-mill laptop sold at a premium

    For such a high price tag, I was expecting this laptop to be built at near Apple quality. However, that's just not the case, and many of the components feel cheap.

    For instance, the screen seems to be too easily moved and I can foresee issues with the hinge in the future.

    Additionally, and this may just be a bit nitpicky, but the power button is a key on the keyboard and I'm not a fan of this design.

    Furthermore, the fingerprint scanner makes the pc feel dated and not up to par with the current trend of Microsoft Hello. It also gets in the way when using the mousepad, but it's more of a preference I suppose.

    Lastly, the laptop is upgradeable but requires you to remove the entire motherboard, as the ram slots are located on the opposite side... Absolutely not worth the high price and I'll be returning and replacing with the Omen 17.
