The New Razer Blade Pro
The new Razer Blade Pro is a stunning machine with powerful 3200 x 1800 touchscreen display and impressive Nvidia graphics. It has clearly established itself as the thinnest and lightest gaming laptop. It comes with 17-inch display and offers a number of new features compared to last year’s model.
The fully backlit keyboard comes with some modified features, such as the scissor switches. It also has the N-key rollover that has become a standard for gaming laptops.
SwitchBlade sets the new Razer Blade Pro apart from the regular Razer Blade. It’s a small touchscreen display to the right of the keyboard along with 10 LCD buttons. Context-sensitive commands can be mapped to the 10 LCD buttons using Razer’s software. The screen can display chats, videos, social media activity and other tasks. It allows users to multitask while enjoying their favorite games on the main screen.
Overall, the new Razer Blade Pro fares well compared to competitor products with similar capabilities. Though not the top performance gaming machine, it covers up for what it lacks in performance through its state-of-the-art design, sturdy look and feel, and above all stunningly slim dimensions.
