"When we introduced the Blade 14 in 2013, Razer challenged the industry to think bigger, yet smaller," said Brad Wildes, Senior Vice President & General Manager of Razer's Systems Business Unit. "The original Blade 14 revolutionized the mobile gaming landscape, earned laptop of the decade, and brought us to where we are today. The new Blade 14 aims to shake up the industry once again by combining Razer's decade worth of experience in crafting ultra-compact and high-end gaming machines with the power and efficiency of AMD Ryzen Mobile Processors. We are thrilled to bring the ultimate mobile gaming experience to gamers with the Razer Blade 14.
