The Razer Blade 14 (2023) is a premium laptop with an upper midrange price. Performance-wise, it's equipped with an AMD Ryzen 9 processor and Nvidia RTX 4060 graphics, suitable for general use, intensive gaming, 3D rendering, machine learning, and even engineering tasks. It has a solid build quality, excellent heat management, and good speakers, all housed in a frame that is under an inch thick and weighs slightly over 4 pounds, offering decent portability. Its 14-inch IPS display boasts a high refresh rate, great for fast motion, and robust color accuracy, however, it is not touch-enabled. The keyboard is backlit and of high quality, reinforcing its appeal for gamers and professionals alike. It has a variety of ports including USB-C with charging support but lacks an Ethernet port. The laptop promises a noteworthy battery life for typical usage but keep in mind, intensive tasks may drain it more quickly. Overall, the Razer Blade 14 (2023) is a versatile laptop that balances performance with portability, making it a strong contender for those seeking a powerful yet portable computing solution.

Ratings by Category

Keyboard Quality:
4.7
The Keyboard Quality score is based on the PerfectRec experts’ assessment of tactile feedback, typing comfort, keyboard reliability and typing noise.
Engineering & Design:
4.6
The Razer Blade 14 (2023) is equipped with a powerful AMD Ryzen 9 7940HS processor, 16GB of RAM, and an Nvidia RTX 4060 graphics card which ensure smooth running of engineering applications and design software requiring strong CPU, GPU, and sufficient memory. The high screen quality is anchored by its 560 nits of brightness and 97% DCI-P3 color space coverage, delivering vivid and accurate colors necessary for design work.
General Use Screen Quality:
4.6
The general use screen score is based on the screen technology, contrast ratio, resolution, brightness, color gamut and color accuracy. This score does not take into account specialized display features for specific use cases, such as high refresh rate for gaming.
Build Quality:
4.6
PerfectRec’s Build Quality Score incorporates case materials, display and keyboard flex, hinge quality, chassis rigidity, and overall reliability. Our assessment of build quality includes many details that are difficult to quantify. Our laptop experts use their best judgment to produce the final score.
Gaming, 3D & AI:
4.5
PerfectRec’s Gaming and 3D Score strongly emphasizes graphics processing capability as well as general performance, while also taking into account other factors that impact suitability for gaming and 3D work. While performance (especially graphics performance) is the most important factor determining this score, we also give modest weight to screen quality, heat management, keyboard quality, and storage.
General Use:
4.4
PerfectRec’s General Use Score takes into account the many different features of the laptop that make it more or less suitable for general productivity, web browsing, streaming, video calls, and running a wide variety of apps and programs. The most important factors in this score include CPU performance, amount of RAM, screen quality, storage, and battery life. Keyboard quality, speaker quality, low fan noise, heat management, and to a lesser extent webcam quality are all moderately important factors for this score.
Portability:
4.4
PerfectRec’s portability rating takes into account the volume and thickness of the laptop as well as its weight.
Battery Life:
4.0
PerfectRec’s Battery Life rating is based on hours of battery life in typical usage scenarios.
Operating Noise:
3.5
PerfectRec’s Operating Noise Score is based on fan noise measurements. Laptops with a fanless design, such as Macbooks, receive the maximum score.

Allen Ngo | May 2022
"After making a huge splash with the original 2021 model, it's expected that the 2022 refresh would be more of a minor update to an already impressive machine. It adds a higher resolution webcam (720p to 1080p), faster CPU (Ryzen 9 5900HX to Ryzen 9 6900HX), faster GPU (RTX 3070/3080 to 3070/3080 Ti), faster RAM (DDR4-3200 to DDR5-4800), faster M.2 SSD support (PCIe3 x4 to PCIe4 x4), newer WLAN module (Killer AX1690i to Qualcomm WCN685x), and a MUX switch for the new integrated Radeon 680M GPU. It's indubitably an upgrade especially in terms of single-thread processor performance."
