When it comes to gaming laptops, there's one that stands above the rest. The Razer Blade 15 has long been our top choice, and the Advanced model recently took home our award for Best of 2019 gaming laptop. One of the main things holding people back from the premium design and unreal performance in the Blade 15 is the price, but Amazon has a Cyber Monday deal that cuts $600 out of the total cost. That's a significant sale, and it's on a configuration with some impressive specs gamers will love. If you're looking to pick up an amazing laptop for Cyber Monday 2019, this is it.

Best gaming laptop of 2019

Razer Blade 15 Advanced

Ridiculous performance in a beautiful laptop

If you want the gaming laptop we've chosen as our top pick for years on end, you can save big thanks to Cyber Monday.

$2,400 $3,000 $600 Off

It's hard to talk about the Razer Blade 15 Advanced without mentioning the CNC-machined aluminum chassis. It has an angular design with squared edges that are as modern as you'll find, and it's just 0.70 inches thin. You can see where Razer gets the name. Despite its size, the laptop holds onto three USB-A, Thunderbolt 3, HDMI, Mini DisplayPort, and 3.5mm audio.

Bezel around the 15.6-inch FHD display is as thin as possible to give the look of the screen stretching edge-to-edge, yet there's still enough room above for a built-in webcam with IR facial recognition for extra security. The display has a 144Hz refresh rate for smooth visuals, and it comes with perfect sRGB color to make your games look as good as possible. You have the option of connecting an external display with the port selection, but honestly, the built-in option here is absolutely stellar.

The keyboard has customizable RGB lighting, and there's a large Precision touchpad for times when you're not using a gaming mouse. On either side of the keys are speakers that deliver solid audio if you're not using a headset.

Performance hardware in the discounted model includes an 8th Gen Intel Core i7-8750H processor (CPU), 16GB of RAM that can be upgraded, a 512GB M.2 PCIe SSD, and a NVIDIA RTX 2080 Max-Q graphics card (GPU) with 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM. It should have no issues pushing high framerates at 1080p, and you'll even be able to enjoy smooth 1440p if you connect to an external monitor. We ran some benchmarks to see how well the Blade 15 stacks up to other gaming laptops. Note that the review model we tested had a 9th Gen i7 CPU rather than 8th Gen and an RTX 2070 GPU instead of an RTX 2080, so performance might be slightly different.

The Razer Blade 15 has long been our go-to choice for a gaming laptop, but we've always mentioned the caveat of a high price. You do certainly get your money's worth, but it's just not in an acceptable range for a lot of people. Thanks to Black Friday, however, the extra $600 off the price does make it a juicy deal, especially for those who were on the fence before. You're only going to get the $2,400 price for one day, though, so if you plan on picking one up, don't hesitate.

Be sure to have a look at our broader roundup of awesome gaming laptop deals for way more savings, and don't miss our collection of ALL the Cyber Monday deals that's constantly being updated.
