The Razer Blade 15 is my bae, the yin to my desktop's yang. As someone who needs a portable workhorse that, ideally, can also play a bit of Deathloop when I'm on my travels, it outperforms on every count despite being gorgeous and slim. Sometimes I rub my fingers over the cool CNC-milled aluminium chassis and imagine I'm bonding with my overpowered metal son.
This model of the Razer Blade 15 has a chunky £300 off right now, and while it won't be the most heavily discounted Black Friday gaming laptop deal around, what you're paying for here is the premium experience. This particular model boasts an Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB RAM, a 512GB SSD and a Nvidia RTX 3060, all shining out of a 15.6″ 360Hz display. It's hard to overstate just how much performance this is packing into such a small size: this will demolish anything you can throw at it and then some for years to come.
There's no better gaming laptop series around, for my money (and it tops our best laptops guide), and when my current model is over the hill I'll be going back to the Razer Blade again. These things are huge investments, but more than repay it.

Razer Blade 15 | 15.6-inch | Intel Core i7 10750H | Nvidia RTX 3060 | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | £1,599.97 £1,299.97 at Box (save £300) This is far from the cheapest RTX 3060-powered gaming laptop on this list, but I wanted to point it out as it’s a Razer Blade 15, our favourite gaming laptop and an incredibly popular design, too.
The specs for this particular on-sale could be a little more generous in terms of storage space, but at least you've got a great processor beneath the hood working alongside that capable Ampere GPU. And all inside Razer's lovely chassis, which is really what you buy a Blade for. This 15.6″ model weighs about 2.10 kg (4.6 pounds) and some other perks you don't get in every laptop, like a Thunderbolt 4 port and three USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports.
