Razer recently refreshed its Razer Blade 14-inch gaming laptop with an updated Intel processor. Voted by the staff here at Windows Central as one of the best gaming laptops (due to its size and build quality), the Blade has a special place in our hearts.
But how big of a deal is the new 2017 Razer Blade with a 7th-Generation Intel Core i7-7700HQ ("Kaby Lake") versus the late-2016 version with a 6th-Generation Intel Core i7-6700HQ ("Skylake")? And is there anything else that is new?

I've been testing and benchmarking both PCs during the last week, and the results are surprising.
