CNET First Look
Razer Blade Pro will devour your walletStarting at $3700, the Razer Blade fits an incredible array of hardware into its 0.88-inch thick frame.
The desktop in your laptop. That's what Razor wants you to think, and it had better be; because this laptop costs 37 hundred US dollars. That's the starting price for the Razor Blade pro, a 17.3-inch black aluminum laptop that fits an NVidia GTX 1080 video chip with 8 Gigabytes of memory, into a frame that's less than an inch thick. It's also got a 4k touch screen with g sync technology for smooth gameplay that displays 100% of the Adobe RGB color space. Which could come in handy if you're doing some photo and video editing. You'll also find the sd card slot you need to off Support photos from your DSLR. All of that is powered by a 6th Gen Quad Core I7 processor, 32 gigabytes of DDR4 memory, and up to 2 terabytes of fast PCI express solid state storage in a RAID 0 Array. Which is a fancy way of saying not only is it fast, they've hooked two of them together to make them even faster. You'll also find some colorful, mechanical keyboard switches here. The first mechanical switches in a Razor laptop. And what Razor says are the thinnest mechanical switches in the world. It's a little weird at first to get used to typing on these things. They require a bit of pressure to press down Perhaps I'll get used to them. It's amazing to me that Razer managed to fit all of this into a frame that's less than an inch thick, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's portable. It's 7.8 pounds heavy and Razer isn't talking about the battery life in here either. It's not something you'll necessarily Taken up for a full day of work. If that's not a problem with you, though, and if it's not too rich for your blood, the Razer Blade Pro is shipping this November.
