The 2020 Razer Blade Pro 17 is essentially a larger, more powerful version of its 15-inch sibling. And that makes it one of highest-performing, most portable premium 17-inch gaming laptops out there.

The Blade Pro 17 deftly straddles the line between thin-and-light 17-inch general-purpose power models like the Dell XPS 17 9700 ($2,940 at Dell, Inc.) and hulking, steroidal gaming systems like the Acer Predator Helios 700 and Gigabyte Aorus 17x ($3,982 at Amazon). While it may look like a Dark Side MacBook Pro 16, it's not really a competitor; it's much heavier and with far shorter battery life thanks to its more gaming-focused components. But its big, high-resolution color-accurate Adobe RGB screen and good performance in applications and games that use both the CPU and graphics processor for optimal performance -- think Shadow of the Tomb Raider, 3DS Max, Maya and so on -- and full set of connections make it particularly well suited for gaming, graphics and photo editing.

The Razer Blade Pro 17 is coming into 2020 with a take-no-prisoners attitude. The laptop is packed with plenty of powerful specs, including an 8-core Intel 10th Gen H Series CPU and Nvidia Super GPU, which allow it to go toe-to-toe with its main competitors. The laptop also managed to deliver great endurance on our battery test. And I can’t stress enough how gorgeous the new panels are. Is the price tag a bit hefty? Yes, but that’s to be expected from a premium gaming laptop, especially one that’s being positioned as a competent workstation.

17.30": This display size is a standard format for desktop replacements (DTR). The DTR laptops are heavier to carry, need more power, but texts are easy to read and high resolutions are no problem. DTR are mainly intended for stationary desk use, where weight and energy hunger don't matter. In return, you enjoy the advantages of high resolutions (more details, better legibility).» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.
