Razer Blade Pro laptop

With the latest upgrades to the Blade Pro laptop, Razer hopes it’s created the ultimate replacement for your desktop. It also hopes you have enough money to pay for that privilege.

The traditional problem with a desktop replacement notebook is being able to cram enough powerful specs into the unit without making it a hot, heavy slab to carry around and use. Razer seems to have figured out both sides of that equation with the latest Blade Pro. In terms of specs, it comes with an Intel Core i7-6700HQ quad-core processor, a choice of two SSD drives (with a total capacity of 512GB, 1TB, or 2TB) and a whopping 32GB of RAM, but even more impressively, it manages to cram a desktop-class Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 GPU inside, making it very hard to complain about your laptop’s graphics capabilities.

Other features designed to make sure you don’t miss your old desktop are a 17.3-inch 4K touchscreen display, a USB-C and three USB 3 ports, and a full mechanical keyboard. Typical of Razer keyboards, it includes the company’s Chroma customizable back-lighting system, though you do lose a number pad in lieu of a large touchpad in the right-hand corner. (The battery is apparently located in the space where a touchpad typically goes, below the keyboard.)
