The earlier version of the Blade 15, which launched in May starting at $1,899, arrived as an SSD-only laptop. Razer isn't gimping the hardware for the new price point, either.

The new base model of the Razer Blade 15 has been priced lower at a starting price of $1,599 (roughly Rs. 1,18,800) for the 128GB SSD + 1TB HDD model and $1,799 (around Rs. 1,33,600) for the 256GB SSD + 2TB HDD variant. For graphics there's an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Max-Q linked to a 60Hz 1080p display and it has 16GB of RAM. The Blade 15 Dual Storage edition is a little bit thicker than the earlier Blade 15 models because of this additional 2.5-inch drive, but Razer took advantage of the extra space by adding in a gigabit Ethernet port to improve connectivity.

Although the new dual-storage model is a little thicker, it actually weighs a little less than the single-storage version, but you'll still get up to six hours of battery life. You do have to pay for the privilege of the new design though, with even the cheapest costing as much as $2,200. Understanding that gamers have different budgets and tastes, Razer is introducing a new Razer Blade 15 Base Model for the budget conscious. And because no upgrade would be complete without some mention of RGB lighting, the base model offers a new single-zone RGB keyboard.

There's a new color option, too.

Razer has also expanded the customization options into the paint job, with the new option of a "Mercury White", coat alongside the typical Razer accented black. This one carries a more premium price tag though, to reflect a burlier collection of hardware.

Prices for the new entry model Blade 15 start at $1,599, and in North America and China it's available to order right now. However, Razer is only offering this color scheme with 144Hz displays and 512GB SSDs, with the GTX 1060 model costing $2,199 (about £1,665, AU$3,095) and the GTX 1070 version going for $2,599 (about £1,968, AU$3,658). Europe and Asia-Pacific markets will get availability from November.

The Mercury White Razer Blade will be available in the USA and Canada through Razer's website directly later this year.
