The Razer Blade 15 is an excellent gaming laptop, but there are plenty of other great 15.6-inch laptop options on the market, too, if it isn't something you're interested in. Here are our top picks for the best alternatives to the Razer Blade 15.
The Acer Predator Triton 500 is an absolute beast, combining maximum horsepower, a sleek and attractive design, and a killer 144Hz display into one excellent package that's sure to make any gamer happy.
The Lenovo Legion Y740 is the most affordable way to get the power of NVIDIA's new RTX graphics cards in your hands, and it also sports a razor-thin design, too, which is always a plus for gamers on-the-go.
Large battery life
If you're looking for maximum battery life, the gargantuan 92 Wh battery of the Gigabyte Aero 15 is perfect for you. While its performance isn't as strong as some of the other devices on this list, you'll be able to avoid charging a lot longer.
The Alienware M15 offers a striking, aggressive aesthetic that many gamers are sure to love, and it also provides a significant amount of power for a fair price, too.
Aside from its respectable performance, the ASUS ROG Zephyrus S also has a unique touchpad placement to the right side of the laptop. This makes room for the keyboard to be placed closer to the front edge of the device.
On top of offering excellent graphics and processing hardware, the ASUS ROG Strix Hero II has an excellent cooling system comprised of dual 12V fans, triple radiators, and a heatsink.
Best RAM and storage options
The Alienware Area 51M can be configured from a ridiculous number of RAM and storage options, so if you're looking for a specific amount of either or both of these specs, this is the device for you.
The Acer Predator Helios 300 offers an impressive balance between power and price, ultimately making it an excellent mid-range pick that will be able to handle most games at HD resolution and with good settings.
