Why Is It Worth Buying?
Razer pushes the limits with the its latest gaming laptop. A highly capable lithium ion battery of 99 watt hours is built in the laptop. Furthermore, the laptop is touchscreen. This is also really thin and portable. It has one of the best displays a laptop could have, as highlighted by Kotaku; the panel features 100 percent Adobe RGB coverage. In addition, Razer developed the world’s smallest vapor chamber cooling system which prevents this gaming laptop from overheating.
Moreover, the laptop can be used with plenty of games. This laptop is also perfect for VR gaming because of the HDMI port. You can even watch more movies and TV series with this laptop even when you have played too many games already. It is perfectly playable on games with at least 30 frames per second (FPS). It can play almost every game that there is.
The sound on this device has been improved further by Razer. It has a pair of speakers set to either side of the keyboard and a pair of thin speaker ports on either side of the housing. The ultra-low-profile mechanical keyboard also resolved the cramming with the keyboard and the laptop.
On the other side of the coin, the Razer Blade Pro 2016 features small, downward-facing internal fans that cause a loud distracting sound. Even with the existence of a cooling device, the area between the monitor and keyboard gets hot during gameplay.
Razer gave their best with the 2016 Razer Blade Pro. This laptop is worth $3,699 which is a reasonable price for reasonable quality.
