Have you been saving for a new PC? Do you want something more satisfying than a simple graphics card upgrade? We just tested out two new additions to our collection, the recently-equipped, high-refresh-rate Blade 15 gaming laptop and the similarly gorgeous Alienware QD.

Razer Blade 15

They are both expensive, to the surprise of no one. We think they may be worth it. The new blade 15 has a wide selection of high refresh rate display options. There is a premium aluminum enclosure with larger keycaps. It is almost $4,000.

Alienware has a curved QD-OLED monitor with a new Quantum Dot panel and is $1,299. This is a premium option compared to many other monitors and it is almost reasonable. The reviews are live on the site.
