During CES 2023, Razer unveiled two new laptops in its Blade series geared toward gamers and creators. Since then, the Razer Blade 16 and Razer Blade 18 have both gone on to win more than their fair share of accolades due to their sleek aesthetic and ability to bridge the gap between working hard and playing harder.
While Razer's Blade laptops offer portable gaming that looks as good as they play, the Blade series of devices has been limited since its release to Razer's black and green colorway. That changes today, though, as Razer has officially released the Razer Blade 16 and Razer Blade 18 Mercury editions featuring anodized aluminum closed in a Mercury white finish.
(Razer previously had other Blade laptops in Mercuary white, but not these newer models.)
The Razer Blade 16 Mercury edition will pair the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 Laptop GPU exclusively with Razer's innovative Dual-Mode Mini LED display, which is capable of toggling between two native resolutions and refresh rates: UHD+ at 120Hz or FHD+ at 240Hz. Users can expect to find the Blade 16 Mercury edition in RazerStores, on the Razer website, and at select retailers worldwide with a $3800 price tag.
Meanwhile, The Razer Blade 18 Mercury edition will give customers more choices in the hardware packed into the laptop. Both the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 and 4090 Laptop GPU configurations will be an option for the Blade 18 and will operate at a maximum TGP of 175W. While the Blade 18 does not make use of Razer's Dual-Mode Mini LED display, it does offer a QHD+ display that covers up to 100% of the CI-P3 color gamut along with featuring upgradeable storage and RAM, a 5MP webcam, and a UHS-II SD card reader.
