Razer updated its 15-inch Blade laptops with the ninth-generation counterparts of its eighth-generation CPUs, Wi-Fi 6 and 10Gbps USB, but one of the most exciting upgrades to the line is an optional 4K OLED touchscreen with a 1 millisecond response time (overclocked) and a 100% DCI-P3 color gamut.
It's pretty much a whole new laptop, modeled after the Blade 15's design: smaller, thinner, lighter with a narrow-bezeled display and modern touchpad between the palm rests. We lose the illuminated outline on the touchpad -- a sacrifice for the thinner profile -- and the volume roller. (New model on the left, old on the right.)
It's not insanely thinner, but you can see how much in the other two dimensions it's shrunk.
The size difference is even more noticeable from above.
But it's still got a 17-inch display, which puts a lower bound on how much you can shrink it.
On one side, there's a UHS-III-compatible SD card slot, and USB-C and HDMI ports.
On the other side is a 2.5GB Ethernet connection, two USB-A and two USB-C connectors, one with Thunderbolt 3 support.
As with the Blade 15, Razer brackets the Blade Pro's keyboard with speakers. The keyboard itself is also new and improved over the earlier model.
There have been no updates to the 15-inch models designs, so from here enjoy photos in caption-free silence.
