Reviews for the Razer Edge Pro

60% Razer Edge Pro review
Source: T3 English
The Razer Edge Pro is one of those bold experiments that has to be applauded. Itís a tablet, a PC and a games console all in one, and playing Skyrim on the go certainly beats Candy Crush Saga. But the Edge Pro also has many drawbacks, including a high price, hefty weight and poor battery life. We'd struggle to recommend it to anyone over a gaming laptop, which will offer even better performance for your money.

If you’re a serious gamer, Call of Duty certainly beats Candy Crush Saga, and there’s nothing quite like being able to play the latest PC titles on-the-go. However, the Razer Edge Pro has too many drawbacks, such as weight and battery life, to make it really worth a purchase over a similarly-specced gaming laptop.

Pound for pound, the $1,449 Razer Edge Pro is indeed the most powerful tablet on the market, making it a compelling choice for gamers who value mobility. Razer managed to cram an Intel Core i7-3517U CPU, 256GB SSD and an Nvidia GeForce GT 640 LE GPU in a sexy, albeit chunky frame. As a result, gamers get an absolute beast of a device.

The overall gaming experience on the Razer Edge Pro is excellent—everything simply worked, as advertised. The combination of solid performance and unrivaled portability is unlike anything an ultraportable gaming laptop can offer, and the sheer flexibility of the design when paired with the various docking options has left me seriously considering getting one of my own. Between the mobility offered by the gamepad dock and the desktop and console-like experience offered by the console dock, I could easily ditch my regular console and handhelds for this single go-everywhere device. In the end, that's the sort of impression that Editors' Choices are made of, making the Razer Edge Pro our new Editors' Choice for ultraportable gaming PCs.

80% Review: Razer Edge Pro tablet—insane performance that's completely impractical
Source: PC World English
The Edge Pro is an amazing piece of kit, but it's hard to recommend it to anyone but a hardcore PC gaming enthusiast. If you want a Windows 8 device for any other purpose, you'd be better served by a Surface Pro or a Windows 8 hybrid, at least until Razer improves upon the Edge Pro's design shortcomings. It's just a few ounces, inches and dollars from being a game-changing product.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M LE: A Slower-clocked version of the GT 640M

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

» 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.  


3517U: Fast Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q2 2012. Offers a core clock of 1.9 - 3.0 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1150 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


10.1": The netbook/subnotebook has a quite small display format. Nonetheless, it is a common format for netbooks. The advantage is, that the subnotebook/netbook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes. It is difficult to use high resolutions. » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


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.


71.67%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
