The new Razer Blade Pro trades gimmicks for 4K gaming power

 

The new Razer Blade Pro is unequivocally the most powerful laptop the company has ever built, and one of the first notebooks we've seen that can consistently play modern 4K games on high graphics settings. But that power comes at the cost of a high...

Extremely powerful and VR-ready ; Beautiful 4Kdisplay ; Fantastic low-profile mechanical keyboard

Too big for some backpacks ; Short battery life ; Very expensive

For the past few years, Razer's "Blade Pro" laptop was paradoxically its least advanced machine, but the latest model finally lives up to its name. With enough power to handle high-resolution video editing, 4K PC games and even virtual reality , it's...

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, but Jack has to work sometime. The 17-inch Razer Blade Pro ($2,399 as tested) retains the stunning good looks and the innovative LCD touchpad of the original, but added several new shortcuts designed for game...

Razer Blade Pro review

 

Razer's signature gaming laptop has been redesigned for more power with no loss of portability

Extremely fast ; Thin and light ; Snappy aesthetics ; Great battery life ; Above average audio

Super expensive ; Stiff keyboard ; Flimsy mouse buttons ; No Blu-Ray player
