The Razer Blade 15 is a well-rounded mid-tier gaming laptop, and today you can take advantage of Prime Day deals to take one home for the lowest price we've ever seen.

The Razer Blade 15 is $949 at Amazon, a special Prime Day deal that takes $550 off the $1,500 price tag of the base model of the Blade 15. This is the first time we've ever seen the base Blade 15 selling for less than $1,000, so if you're shopping for a gaming laptop on a budget this is a great deal to consider.

Amazon has an exclusive Prime Day deal that cuts $550 off the $1,499 price tag of the base Razer Blade 15, taking it down to $949. That's the cheapest we've ever seen the base Blade 15, an older gaming laptop that still has enough power to run most modern games well at 1080p.

The Razer Blade 15 holds a spot on our best gaming laptops you can buy list because it packs enough power to play the latest games into a svelte, well-designed chassis. Amazon is selling the base model for an all-time low price of $949, and for that you'll get a Blade 15 with a 10th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU, a GeForce GTX 1660 Ti GPU, 16 GB of RAM and a 256 GB SSD. 

Even though the components are a little dated, 16 GB of RAM and a GTX 1660 Ti graphics card should give you enough power to run most modern games at respectable framerates on the 15.6-inch 1920 x 1080 touchscreen. If you're willing to bump the game's resolution down to 1080p you'll get even better performance out of the base Blade 15, making this a great opportunity to pick up a decent gaming laptop on the cheap — and one of the best Prime Day laptop deals we've yet seen today.
