Hello,

I am looking to purchase a laptop in the 1000$ range and i was looking at these 2 Razer laptops. I was wondering if it would be best for my to get the blade 14 for the higher specs but buy it used or get the stealth and buy it new. I do want to do some light gaming which i know the stealth does not excel at but its very light weight gaming like Minecraft. If there are any other good specs and looking laptop feel free to link me

I'll be honest, I really don't see the razer blade working out too well. If you're on a budget, I wouldn't go for a last-gen gpu anyway because of the drastic difference in gaming performance compared to modern laptop gpus like the 1060. A 7500u should be enough to handle games like Minecraft & Overwatch fine as long as you don't care too much about running at native res.

Wait does the stealth even have a dedicated gpu? The website doesn't say that it has a dedicated gpu anywhere on the product information

It does not have a dedicated GPU its meant to be an ultrabook that you hook up to the razer core

Why would i go with the 6500u where i could go with the blade 14 which is a slighty older model but still has better specs. Is buying a used laptop a bad way to go?

I'd go with the used laptop Tbh. As long as nothing is broken you can just have fresh install of windows and it should be like new.

I just really don't see the dedicated GPU being useul to you if you're mostly going to browse the web and play games like Minecraft. The noise from the fans of the blade are also annoyingly loud from what I've heard. Actually, seeing as they're the same price roughly, the blade isn't a bad option, but it's really based on what you need and what you don't.

if you want something powerful and cheap get a dell Inspiron 7000, get the i7 and 1050ti model or an xps 15 if you have the budget, or get a ultrabook like hp envy or LG gram.

I was looking at the Dell inspiron just now and my only hesitation with getting the 999$ model one (1050 ti) is that its a hybrid drive and not an ssd

throw in an SSD after, it's easily upgradable.

Be weary of Dell Gaming Laptops. I've bought two different ones in the past and both times they've had issues with the screens. It seems like a lot of people have issues with the quality control of their products.

I am now looking at the acer Vx5.

Which is reccomended getting a i7 7700hq with a 1050 or a i5 7300 hq with a 1050 ti?
