The Razer Blade Pro 17 has a 2.8-GHz Intel Core i7-10875H processor with 16GB of RAM. It's one of the first gaming laptops I get to test with Intel's new 10th Gen H Series chips. The laptop ably juggled 28 open Google Chrome tabs while I watched Queer Eye on Netflix.

The Razer Blade Pro 17 is one of the most powerful and most portable 17-inch gaming laptops. It has arguably the best build, can scale to the top components and features, and has the longest battery life. If you're not deadset on a bigger screen, maybe you want to splurge even more for the Asus ROG Zephyrus.

  • High-end components

Reviewers from techradar have found the following[***]:
Razer has always had excellent design, and the Blade Pro 17 is definitely no exception. The all-black design is only interrupted by a lit up Razer Logo on the back that doesn't even look obnoxious like most illuminated logos do. The keyboard is excellent, if a bit less clicky than we'd expect from a gaming laptop - though that's in no way a bad thing. It also has the best trackpad we've ever seen in a laptop of this class.

Pros[**]
  • Gorgeous design
  • Great gaming performance
  • Great trackpad
Cons[**]
  • Battery life isn’t great

Reviewers from tomshardware have found the following[***]:
The Razer Blade Pro 17 is in an awkward position for a gaming laptop. It's priced similar to other computers that outperform it in gaming. Its minimal look is enticing, too, but it doesn't feel as impressive in the hands. If all you care about is performance, there are better picks out there.

Pros[**]
  • Sleek design
  • Slim and portable
  • Good performance
Cons[**]
  • No Thunderbolt 3 port
  • Chunky keyboard
