New Razer Blade Pro
Source: Comp Reviews English
Sadly, Razer made too few changes to their New Blade Pro 17-inch laptop. The graphics processor and extra RAM are the two major differences. The RAM is certainly welcome as the system can't be upgraded after purchase. The graphics should help improve battery life as well. The problem is that those looking for a thin and light 17-inch gaming laptop can opt for more affordable alternatives.

80% Razer Blade Pro review
Source: T3 English
The Razer Blade Pro is a great gaming laptop, offering a mix of performance, style and quality at a premium price. It'll handle every game you throw at it right now with aplomb, producing gorgeous visuals on its big 1080p 17-inch screen. Our few complaints are minor, such as the placement of the trackpad, the lack of 802.11ac networking, and the omission of a card reader. There are more powerful gaming laptops available at this price, but none that are as thin, light or beautifully designed as the Razer Edge Pro.

Razer Blade Pro Review
Source: Ubergizmo English
If you take your gaming serious and want to have a more portable solution while you’re on the go or if you’re moving from one area of your home to another frequently, then the Razer Blade Pro is the gaming laptop for you. It has the performance, the unique look and we really liked its LCD trackpad, that is, once we got used to its unorthodox location.

90% Razer Blade Pro review

We're very much impressed. From top to bottom, the Razer Blade Pro is a very well-thought out design, and is a joy to use on a day-to-day basis. Given the brooding chassis, evil-green glowing lights, and raw power, we couldn't help but think of this rig as the anti-MacBook. The hardest-core gamers will marvel at the quick key effects the customizable Switchblade UI permits. Everyone else will marvel at how cool it is.

Razer Blade Pro first play: pictures and hands-on
Source: Pocket Lint English
Razer gaming laptops are rare creatures in the UK, so when Pocket-lint caught a glimpse of the latest superthin Razer Blade Pro at a gaming event ahead of this year's Computex we jumped at the change to have a play.

70% 2014 Razer Blade Pro review: Only slightly better than last-year's model
Source: PC World English
The Blade Pro is a moderately powerful machine designed for the average user, versus the hardcore crowd. While I love a laptop that can run games on the highest settings without a stutter, “normal” gaming laptops are portable in name only. The Blade Pro isn’t as fast as those machines, but it’s a whole lot easier on my back when I need to hit the road. It’s fast enough, and it’s beautiful: Strangers will compliment your choice in hardware, as opposed to staring with pity at the horrific monstrosity you’ve somehow dragged into your lap. Here’s hoping Razer gives the 2015 the full makeover it deserves.

Comment

Razer: Razer is a Californian company, founded in 1998. It is specialized in computer accessories like mouses, mousepads for gamers. In 2011, the first laptop review of a Razer laptop was published.


These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M:

High-End Graphics cards as part of the Geforce 700M series based on the Kepler architecture.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M: Upper mid-range graphics card from the GeForce GTX 800M series.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

4700HQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.4 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.


17.3: Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


3 kg:

This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.

3 kg:


84.8%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
