Razer has announced its latest gaming laptop, the Razer Blade Pro 17, which comes with an eight-core i7 processor and a variety of different customization options. These options let you choose what type of Nvidia RTX graphics card the laptop comes equipped with as well as its display. Your choices include a display with a refresh rate of 144Hz, 240Hz, or 300Hz, all of which are paired with a 1080p resolution. The Razer Blade Pro 17 is available for pre-order now, and depending on the configuration, you might be able to get it at a significant discount. The Razer Blade Pro 17 currently starts at $2,000 USD (normally $2,500) and releases later this month.
The $2,000 price gets you the Razer Blade Pro 17 with an RTX 2060, i7-10875H processor, 144Hz screen, and 512GB of storage, but if you want to go all out with the 300Hz screen, you’ll also need to upgrade to the RTX 2070 Max-Q for $2,600. An RTX 2080 Max-Q is also available, though you’ll have to settle for the 240Hz display. However, you also have the option for a 4K 120Hz touchscreen with the RTX 2080 Max-Q and the even more powerful RTX 2080 Super Max-Q. The 4K screen is more suitable for production and content creation, though you’ll still be able to game handsomely on it.

All purchases of the Razer Blade Pro 17 currently come with the Galactic Gaming Bundle, which includes Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Total War: Three Kingdoms and its Eight Princes DLC, a custom Intel skin for The Cycle, and one month of Origin Access, EA’s game library subscription service. GameSpot’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order review and Total War: Three Kingdoms review both scored their respective games an 8/10.
Razer has a reputation for making excellent, sleekly designed gaming laptops. The Razer Stealth is one of the best gaming laptops for portability out there, and the Razer Blade Pro 17 looks quite impressive with those specs. However, if you’re looking for something on the more budget-friendly side, the Memorial Day deals are out in full force and feature laptops, monitors, and more.
