Every swordsman knows the importance of sharpening one's blade for the next confrontation because a dulled and rusty edge provides no confidence at all. Well, that or you could just buy a new sword entirely.

Putting aside all that cheesy zen talk, Razer has just unveiled the latest iteration of its Blade series gaming laptops, the Blade 15. Packing up to an 8-core 10th-gen Intel Core i7-10875H (the first for a Razer laptop!), not to mention a beefy NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super graphics card, there's definitely a whole lot of ammunition compressed into its diminutive frame. But there's more.

In terms of display, the Blade 15 can roll with one of two options, both of which feature a 3840x2160 resolution. The first is a 300Hz FHD Matte display, and the second is an OLED 4K Touch display, which you can consider if your wallet is feeling up to the task. Nevertheless, whichever one you pick, your games will look buttery smooth and ungodly amazing, which pays dividends if you're an avid fan of first-person shooters or battle royales. 

Moving on, the 0.7-inch think aluminium chassis (for the advanced form) also houses a powerful cooling system made up of cutting-edge thermal materials and a custom vapour chamber, while the base version sports an equally reliable bespoke heat pipe system.

Last but not least, Razer wouldn't be Razer without some RGB lighting splashed here and there. The base version includes regular single-zone backlit keyboard powered by Razer Chroma, while the advanced form includes fancier Per-Key RGB lighting that can be modified individually as preferred. 

So, how much does the Blade 15 go for? Tentatively it starts from US$1,599 (~S$2,292), although it might vary depending on what you decide to add in. Of course, there are many other nifty features in there, which you can check out on the official page. All in all, the Blade 15 is as Razer describes it, "More Power. More Cores. More Frames.", and considering all the top-shelf games that need playing, it looks like this little beauty has got its work cut out for it already.
