Reviews for the Razer Blade Pro 17 RTX 2070 Max-Q 300 Hz
It's the first 17.3-inch gaming laptop to offer refresh rate options greater than 240 Hz. Unless if you're a super enthusiast, however, it's gonna be hard to tell the difference between 300 Hz and last year's 240 Hz panel.

But it’s got an Ultrabook-y vibe to it. Like its smaller counterparts in the Blade line, the Pro 17 is chic and professional, lacking the bells and whistles you might expect to see on a large gaming laptop. The chassis is all black and all aluminum, with Razer’s logo adding a sleek splash of green to the lid. The keyboard, while colorful, is classy and subdued.

The Razer Blade Pro 17 has some of the strongest performance in its class, but it's held back by its heavy build and short battery life – but if that doesn't bother you, there's a lot to love.

I liked the Blade Pro 17 last year, and I like it even more this year. Razer not only kept the best parts of the laptop the same, but they also updated the hardware specs and screen, as well as the keyboard's layout. As a result, this outperforms the previous generation by a fair margin, even if it's not the fastest implementation of the 8Core i7 platform, and remains one of the better-balanced 17-inchers in its portable niche. The short battery life and the steep pricing might hold some of you back, though.

The Razer Blade Pro 17 is coming into 2020 with a take-no-prisoners attitude. The laptop is packed with plenty of powerful specs that will allow it to go toe-to-toe with its main competitors, if not surpass them. And I can’t stress enough how gorgeous the new panels are.

The Razer Blade Pro 17 is the latest addition to the Razer Blade family. This laptop seeks to wrap the functionality of a gaming laptop and a workstation into a nice, slim CNC aluminium bow. The Blade Pro 17 is the latest to incorporate Intel’s 10th-Gen octa-core H-series processors into the mix along with Nvidia’s new RTX Super GPUs. Razer has also upgraded its always lovely displays to a 300Hz refresh rate in this laptop.
Just like every other Blade before this, the Blade Pro 17 is made from CNC aluminium covered in a beautiful ebony black colour. There is a rather large touchpad situated just below the keyboard, in between the two speaker grills. There is a sizeable space between the top of the keyboard and the rounded hinge, allowing plenty of room for vents to dispel hot air from the cooling system. The Razer Blade Pro 17’s island-style keyboard provides generous spacing between its keys and springy feedback. The keyboard’s Chroma lighting is definitely a gorgeous attraction in this laptop. The glass touchpad is smooth to the touch and performs Windows 10 gestures, such as pinch-zoom and three-finger tap, rather quickly.
The laptop has been equipped with a 17.3-inch 1920 x 1080 pixel non-touch display. Despite the matte, anti-glare coating, the colours are still vivid. The overall display is surrounded by relatively slim borders with the exception of the bottom chin. In terms of its ports, the Razer Blade Pro 17 has ports to support both functions of being a workstation laptop and also as a gaming laptop. On the right side, there is a USB-3.2 Gen-2 Type-A port, a Thunderbolt-3 port, an HDMI-2.0 port, an SD-card reader and a Kensington lock slot as well for users’ convenience. In addition to that, there are two USB-3.2 Type-A ports, a USB-3.2 Gen-2 Type-C port, an Ethernet port, a headset jack and a proprietary power port on the left side of the laptop.
The Razer Blade Pro 17 has been equipped with a 2.8-GHz Intel Core i7-10875H processor with 16 GB of RAM. However, it should be noted that this laptop tends to heat up rather quickly, even after 15 minutes of full-screen video streaming, which definitely needs the user's attention in maintaining the laptop. As far as the battery is concerned, the Blade Pro 17 comes with a 70.5Wh battery capacity, but it is not really long-lasting for gaming purposes. However, the laptop has shown a lasting capacity of 4 hours and 41 minutes on the Laptop Mag Battery Test, which is rather impressive. Apart from that, the device also has a 720p webcam that provides rather sharp and detailed images. Overall, the Razer Blade Pro 17 is packed with plenty of powerful specs, but, of course, for a price which justifies such features.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
In former years, this weight was representative for laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal. Nowadays, 17 inch laptops weigh less than that.
