The rest of the Blade 15 base model remains the same. You'll still get a 15.6-inch 1080p display, albeit with the new 144Hz option. That's backed up by 16GB of RAM, a 9th Gen Intel Core i7-9750H processor, and up to 512GB of SSD storage or and combination of up to 256GB SSD and 1TB HDD storage.
The new Razer Blade 15 Base model is available now starting at $1,600 at Razer's website. If you need more power, you can step up to the Razer Blade 15 Advanced, which can be equipped with up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080, a 4K touch display, and more.
