Razer reveals price and specs for its insanely powerful VR-ready mobile gaming notebook

The newest 17-inch Razer Blade Pro has been announced, and it packs a punch! Razer has unveiled their newest gaming laptop which incorporates an insane amount of power into the slim, inch thick notebook. With plenty of specs to exceed the minimum hardware requirements for HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and OSVR HDK 2, the Razer Blade Pro is set to dazzle with a 4k G-Sync IGZO display and capacitive multi-touch. 

Equipped with the latest Intel Core i7 quad-core processor, Razer has not only built its most powerful system but has also eliminated the stigma that better means bigger. The powerhouse incorporates 32GB of DDR4 Ram and up to 2TB of PCI M.2 SSD storage, and the Nvidia’s latest top-end graphics card Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080.

Razer Blade Pro’s impressive features don’t stop there, the notebook also sets new ground with its innovative customizable keyboard. Mimicking the feel of a full-sized keyboard, Razer Blade Pro offers ultra-low profile mechanical key switches, with presses that require 65 grams of force.
