At a Glance
  • Razer Blade Pro (Model RZ09-00117)

    PCWorld Rating

    The 2014 Razer Blade Pro is overshadowed by its smaller compatriot, the 14-inch Razer Blade; but its attractive price-to-performance ratio renders it worthy of consideration.

    The 2014 Razer Blade Pro is overshadowed by its smaller compatriot, the 14-inch Razer Blade; but its attractive price-to-performance ratio renders it worthy of consideration.

    Pros

    • Gorgeous aluminum chassis
    • Relatively thin and light for a 17-inch gaming laptop
    • Innovative SwitchBlade UI (when it works)

    Cons

    • The SwitchBlade touchscreen exhibits too much friction to be a good trackpad
    • Middle-of-the-road performance
    • Only incremental component upgrades from the 2013 model
