Razer has refreshed its 14-inch Blade gaming laptop, which now features an optional 4K display, and Intel's latest and greatest Kaby Lake CPU architecture, with the Core i7-7700HQ processor.

The new Blade might feature new hardware, but it still retains its 0.70-inch thickness, and 4.3 pounds with the 4K display - all courtesy of the unibody aluminum chassis. Inside, NVIDIA's new GeForce GTX 1060 with 6GB of GDDR5 is included, and 16GB of DDR4 system RAM.

You can configure up to 1Tb of SSD storage, Thunderbolt 3 connectivity is included, and the beautiful Razer Chroma keyboard of course.

Razer's new Blade starts at $1899 with the 1080p display, and is available right now in the US, Canada, UK, Germany, and France through, but the more expensive higher-end 4K model won't be coming until at least April.
