Both versions will have 4.9mm bezels around the display and a webcam at the top of the screen. 

The Razer Blade offers at least 16GB of 2667MHz DDR4 memory and Intel’s latest i7-8750H processor, offering a base clock speed of 2.2GHz and a boost clock speed of 4.1GHz alongside a GTX 1060 Max-Q or GTX 1070 Max-Q. On the storage side, the Blade is available with PCIe SSD storage configurations of up to 512GB by default with support of up to 32GB and 2TB of storage.  

Connectivity-wise the Razer Blade offers Mini-DisplayPort, HDMI and Thunderbolt 3 display connections, three USB 3,1 Gen 1 ports. This notebook also ships with support for Thunderbolt 3 external GPU enclosures, allowing this unit to offer increased graphics performance.
