Reviews for the Razer Blade Pro 17 inch
Source: Comp Reviews
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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.
