Razer Blade Vs Microsoft Surface Book: Pros and Cons

The gaming Laptops have undergone several changes over the last years and now, they have become thinner, lighter, and less flashy in their design. There are several gaming laptops available in the market and you can choose the best one according to your preferences.

Some recent 2-in-1 models aren’t built for gaming, but it sure seems like that’s one of their intended purposes. In this article, we are going to see in detail about Razer Blade Vs Microsoft Surface Book Pros and Cons

Razer Blade Vs Microsoft Surface Book Features

1. Design

Razer Blade: The new Razer Blade is entirely upgraded from its previous version and it is much thinner than its 2019 model. The Razer Blade is available in two colors namely black finish and silver finish. The silver model does not have the green snake logo in the front of the device while the black one has green snakes in its logo. 

Microsoft Surface Book: The Microsoft surface book looks similar in appearance as their earlier models and the outer magnesium body is well finished. The surface of the laptop is very smooth, soft and when you touch it, it feels solid. 

2. Keyboard & Touchpad 

Razer Blade: The keyboard is completely upgraded from its previous model because, in the earlier one, the Razer chroma Lighting works for the secondary function keys like brightness control, volume control, hence you cannot see that key while gaming in the darkroom. But now those function keys with lights are added in the new model keyboard. The shift button and the trackpad remain the same as the earlier one but the right shift key is placed nearer to the arrow keys and question mark key. 

Microsoft Surface Book: In this laptop, the keyboard gives a better typing experience than the original surface book and it is better than the previous model. 

3. Display

Razer Blade: The display of the Razer Blade is excellent with 600 nit's peak brightness, HDR 400 certification, and 100?I-P3 coverage. The colors of the display are super satisfying with an incredible contrast ratio that just makes all the text and icons, and it is the most satisfying display that can be found on a laptop. 

Microsoft Surface Book: The 13 and a half-inch pixel sense display is getting attention now with a 3000×2000 resolution which results in a taller display. The display is perfect for browsing the internet and creating documents, and it also features multi-touch and is more comfortable with the surface pen and surface dial. 

4. Performance

Razer Blade: The 2019 Blade has been now updated with new RTX hardware and some other incredible features. The older generations of Razer Blades have faced issues with thermals because the company makes the laptop very thin, and it is very excellent in appearance. This new RTX GPUs will make the system much hotter but it can be resolved when it arrives and the performance of the GPU is great.

Microsoft Surface Book: The performance of the laptop is entirely good and it has a quad-core Kaby Lake-R which makes the CPU faster. Multi-core performance is strong and it is faster than its earlier models so that you do not need specific apps that can handle multi-core processing. But it is not the fastest laptop in the world because it is just a 15-watt U processor. 

5. Weight & Dimensions

Razer Blade: The width, depth, and height of the laptop is 35.5 cm, 23.5 cm, 1.8 cm with a weight of 2.1 kg.

7. Portability  

Both Razer Blade and surface Book are on the heavier side and it is as thin, though Microsoft’s notebook has a thicker rear end at the hinge. They are equally weighted heavily when placed in the backpack, but they’re easy to carry compared to high-end notebooks and gaming machines. That makes it relatively easy to carry around given how much power is packed inside.
