The lightweight Blade finally gets its Kaby Lake update.

Razer’s 14″ gaming notebook, the Razer Blade, is officially getting its own Intel Kaby Lake processor update after its smaller brother, the Blade Stealth receive its own back last Sept 2016.

Re-released as a “new” model, Razer seems to have dropped the QHD+ display version for the 2017 model of the Blade in exchange for a 4K display and a capacitive multi-touch feature. Both the Full HD, or the “base” version, and the 4K display iterations of the Blade will still be utilizing a 6GB DDR5 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card and 16GB of DDR4 memory modules, albeit with a higher frequency of  2400mhz, packed inside a 4-pound frame.

Pricing for the new Razer Blade Kaby Lake model will start at USD 1,899 which is USD 100 more than the price of the Skylake equipped model, and is now available at the Razer store for US, Canada, UK, Germany and France, and will be pushing through for release to the rest of the global market sometime this March 2017, the 4K version, on the other hand, will be hitting the stores at a later date and will be released this April 2017.
