But what if you need more mobile firepower, not MacBook Pro-like compromise? Witness the recently revamped 17-inch Razer Blade Pro. It’s thicker and heavier than the other laptops listed here, but still manages to keep a MacBook-esque form factor in a sub-1-inch chassis, and it puts that extra space to good use.
Razer’s touting the Razer Blade Pro as a desktop in a laptop body, and it ain’t lying. This beast packs options for up to 32GB of RAM, 6th-gen quad-core Core i7 processors that can boost to up to 3.5GHz, 2TB of PCI-E SSDs configured in RAID 0, and god-tier GTX 1080 graphics paired with a 4K IGZO display featuring Nvidia’s G-Sync screen-smoothing technology and 100 percent Adobe color-space coverage. As if that wasn’t enough, the Razer Blade Pro packs a full backlit RGB mechanical keyboard into its chassis and a full array of port options, including three USB 3.0 ports, HDMI 2.0, ethernet, an SD card reader, Thunderbolt 3/USB-C, and even a Kensington lock slot.
Sadly, the new Razer Blade Pro hasn’t quite hit the streets just yet, but you can sign up on Razer’s website to be notified of its arrival. Keep your checkbook handy, because this monster starts at a cool $3,700.
