Razer is once again expanding its Blade lineup of notebooks. It has launched a new ultra-slim notebook called Razer Blade Pro. This 17 inch laptop comes with a mechanical keyboard as well as NVIDIA’s GTX 1080 graphics processor for superior gaming performance. The company says that this is the most powerful system that it has ever created, and the specs sheet does do justice to its claims. Don’t miss Eliane Fiolet’s hands-on time with the RAZER Blade Pro.
The Razer Blade Pro is powered by an Intel Core i7-6700HQ processor coupled with 32GB of RAM and NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1080 graphics processor. All of that power is packed inside an aluminum chassis that only measures 0.88 inches thick.
Three USB 3.0 ports, a Thunderbolt 3 port, HDMI, 3.5mm headphone jack, Ethernet jack, and an SDXC card reader are all on board. Before I forget, the Razer Blade Pro touts a gorgeous 17.3 inch 4K display which is more than good enough for all of your gaming needs.
Razer says that this notebook comes with its new “ultra-low-profile mechanical switches” which basically emulate the performance of a full-fledged mechanical keyboard.
As you can probably imagine, all of these amazing features come at a price. The Razer Blade Pro has been priced at $3,699 as long as you don’t go beyond 512GB of SSD storage. Razer hasn’t said when the notebook will be launched but it expects to start shipping the Blade Pro in November.
