    Hello Brastic,

    Please accept my apologies, I am comparing Razer Blade Basic model.

    We agree that Razer Blade 15 Advanced Model is the best choice for travel.
    Built-in 80WHr rechargeable lithium-ion polymer battery.

    But for Streamer, Youtuber having two NVMe PCIe 4.0 SSDs is the most important.
    Razer Blade 17 sacrifice battery life and weight for better screen.

    It is always a pleasure to chat about different choices that we have according to our needs.
    Razer offers so many variations. ^ _ ^

    No apologies necessary. The Razer web page is a total mess and the specs they list are very incomplete. I am very ready to replace my aging 2017 Razer Blade Pro and have been looking for a new laptop. If I just needed a work / play laptop, the Razer 14 with a 3080 would be an easy choice. I cannot believe how much power and battery life they put into that laptop. I really like my laptops to have easy docking and Thunderbolt 4 / USB 4 is a must have for me. So I am looking at the Blade 15 and 17 right now. I am thinking that I will wait for the Blade 17 to start shipping on Aug 11 and see how the reviews come out.

    Really interested in the new blade 17. However, I'm finding mixed information on the wattage of the GPU's. At some places it's mentioned that all blades with 11th gen chips have 130w to the GPU, while at other places I read that this is only the case for the 3080 with i9 processor version. Hope someone over here is able to clarify this for me.
  7. This information is really useful.

    I see that the15" have PD, but does the 17" also have PD, if at what wattage?

    Why there is a Pro 17 3070 QHD 165HZ and a Pro 17 3070 QHD 240HZ? What is the difference other then the refreshrate? Ist there may be GSync/Advacnced Optimus with the 240Hz version like in the 15“ Advacned or may be higher GPU power or something like that or is it just the 75HZ more on the display?

    I just do not know about this. Now that I have had some time with 17" laptops with the key pad, I am changing my mind. Even on my 2017 17" Pro with the track pad on the side, it bugs me that the keyboard is not centered. If I had to make any changes to the current laptop keyboard it would be a full size arrow keys. That does not mean going back to the half shift key either. That half shift key was terrible. I would keep hitting the up arrive by accident and erasing what I was typing. That was the first time I sold a laptop because of a keyboard.

    Trying to figure out if all the 2021 models of the 17 are thunderbolt compatible, can't seem to find good information on it. When looking at the list of compatible models it only lists one 17 that's from 2020, but none of the 2021 models. Is that because they are all compatible?

    Yes they all have thunderbold 4. If you go to the individual pages of the models the tech spec mentions:
    • 2 x Thunderbolt™ 4 (USB-C™)
    I found this at all 11th gen models.

    17 Inches laptop o_O More like a portable desktop, too big to be a laptop !
  19. Hello, does anyone have any information about possibility to use 130W on 17 inch blade pro (early 2021)? As I understand in mid 2021 version internal hardware didn't change much, razer just decided that on 17inch there is more room for heat. It will be very sad not to get the same option :frown_:
