The detail of our analysis in this article.
Blade Pro adapted to surf the internet?
Just because your use of a laptop is limited to e-mail and web browsing sessions, doesn’t mean you should buy any model.This laptop will ensure that the tasks you perform will be reliable and trouble-free for years to come.The key is to achieve balance with a cheap but solid laptop.This product will thus perfectly meet your needs.By putting on the market the Blade Pro, Razer offers a well thought-out product of very good quality.
With a 15 inches size, it is in the average, and you can carry it relatively easily. The computer is equipped with one of the latest processors Intel Core i7-7820HK. A component providing impressive power and responsiveness. In short, this model will give you full satisfaction for an Internet browsing use. With 16 Gb of RAM, it Blade Prois a good product. It’s the certainty that the computer will work better and longer.
Of all the computers available at the moment, this one is the laptop with the largest hard drive. You’ll actually have plenty of space to store files and video locally on the 1000 Gb provided. In case you would have to do without any internet connection, this size of space can be interesting.
Additional point concerning autonomy: 6 hours of tranquility. This laptop is in the middle of the range for its autonomy. It would be more interesting for the same price, to buy a desktop or a tablet, more powerful on the part autonomy and web surfing.
The Blade Pro- the right model for streaming and videos ?
Making this Blade Pro a multimedia tool, such seems to have been the objective of Razer. You will benefit from an unparalleled comfort of use. We discovered through the tests we put it to, that it is one of the best on the market. The sound reproduction level and the display quality of this top-of-the-range model won’t be lacking.
The computer proposed by Razeris of average size. This diagonal of 15 inches and a resolution of 1920×1080, is a good compromise. The rendered image is well detailed, with a bright and vivid rendering. In conclusion, it is a well-balanced product that allows the films to be viewed correctly; and with a contained weight of 2.1 kg, it is easily transportable.
The glossy screen option is not possible on this model; it would have made the display easier to read. The effect is of lower quality in environments with intermediate or even low light levels – often corresponding to the conditions in which a film is viewed. The readability of the display is therefore a little lower.
Therefore, when used in daylight conditions, you will appreciate the lack of this feature, as the light induces reflections, making it difficult to view.
For the sound part, the Blade Pro is equipped with a correct sound card and speakers. To test the audio quality, we turned up the volume with a movie trailer and then with a few songs of different types. Despite good quality, you won’t get the same sound level as with a decent set of external speakers. In short, it is relevant here to consider buying additional speakers if you are very sensitive to the quality of this function.
The processor installed on this model is a high-end Intel Core i7-7820HK. Belonging to the latest generation of processors, this laptop will not be impressed by multiple multimedia tasks. Performance corresponding to billions of calculations per second.
Equipped with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 graphic card, and with 16 Gb of RAM, you will be able to see your movies and even do photo editing if needed. This will obviously be a bit light if you want to do 3D imaging, but will suit your needs.
Regarding the connectivity part, Razer has made efforts with available 4 ports. That makes it one with the biggest number of ports compared to what’s on the market right now. Plenty of room to connect your mouse, speakers and other USB keys.
About the batteries, be aware that you will have some time before you have to reconnect the power. 6 hours of battery life is enough for the vast majority of the videos you’ll see.
The Blade Pro to use while travelling.
It’s a laptop, it folds like a laptop, but because of its size and weight, nothing makes Blade Pro to be easily carried around. This seems to be the issue that the Razer didn’t really take into account in the design of this Blade Pro. Difficult to store in a suitcase, not very suitable for transport, tests have shown that this laptop will be more in its element for very exceptional trips.
Reserve its use at home, between your living room and your bedroom.
This is one of the heaviest models compared to the competition: 2.1 Kg. It’s complicated when you have to transport it. If you use it on your lap, you will find that it is cumbersome. The weight is mainly related to the size of the screen. The explanation mainly comes down to the size of the screen: 15inches.
