    Lately I have been looking at some 14" Razer Blades since I'd like to upgrade from my old laptop that is basically dead.

    But Firstly, could someone describe the difference between a Full HD screen VS a QHD screen?

    I've been trying to figure out what's the different between these 2 Razer Blades:
    "The New Razer Blade"
    https://www.razerzone.com/ca-en/store/razer-blade - Full HD - 512GB
    "Razer Blade V5"
    https://www.razerzone.com/ca-en/store/razer-blade-v5 - QHD - 512GB

    Specs on both are basically the same, except the New Razer blade has an i7-7700HQ while the V5 has i7-6700HQ.

    Which one would be the better pick? ;o

    A Full HD screen will be 1920x1080, also known as 1080p. The QHD+ screen is 3200x1800. So as you can see...the QHD+ screen will have quite a bit more pixels then the Full HD screen. Which means that images on the screen will look sharper and cleaner, since the pixels will be a lot smaller, since both screens are the same size, but one as more pixels then the other.

    Also, with more pixels come less battery life. The laptop has to drive more pixels, which means it has to work harder to deliver information to whats going to be on each pixel.

    Also, QHD+ screens are an awkward pixel count compared to 1080p, 1440p, or 4k...which means that some applications or games might have scaling issues to that resolution, but most should be okay.

    And the processors are just minor differences. The new gen7 processor is a little bit more efficient, which means a bit more battery life, runs a little cooler, and will run 4k things better since it has a built in thing for that. But the 6700 is pretty much just as good performance wise in most scenarios.

    Hope thats easy enough to understand. if you have any more questions just let me know!

    Also note the FHD screens has a matte finish, and is not a touchscreen.

    The QHD screen is a glossy touchscreen.

    Hmmm, Then I may consider The New Razer blade more then. But at the same time, ManO'War bonus with the V5 is pretty convincing xD

    I'm not thaaaaat big with touch screens on laptops. I like the idea of being able to touch things, but it feels weird since the screen is on an axle, I have the fear of it actually damaging the axle over time, and I already do have a Surface Pro 3, but the touch screen recently cracked on it's own soooo I've had my fair share of touch screens for now on a "computer" xD
