Razer Blade 15 Advanced has light-based optical mechanical keyboard

Razer is the first with a notebook rocking an optical mechanical keyboard using light sensors instead of physical sensors

Razer has always been at the forefront of technology when it comes to its gaming laptops, but the latest Blade 15 Advanced really takes things to the next level with an optical mechanical keyboard.


The new Razer Blade 15 Advanced and its optical mechanical keyboard uses light sensors in place of physical switches, with the light sensor-based keyboard technology finding a better home in a gaming laptop that needs a thin, but precise keyboard.

Razer says that because the new Blade 15 Advanced's optical mechanical keyboard has no "bounce back issues" compared to other keyboards, with N-Key rollover also here to get away from ghosting issues when you're slamming your fingers into the keyboard typing or during those hectic gaming sessions.

The new Razer Blade 15 Advanced is more expensive than the 'normal' Blade 15 Advanced, with the optical mechanical keyboard version starting at $2649. You'll get some pretty beefy specs with an Intel Core i7-9750H, 16GB of RAM, 512GB SSD and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 graphics. It'll come with a 1080p 240Hz display which is also not too damn bad at all.
