    It's just a little bit bigger than my 15" Macbook Pro retina from 2012. The performance boost would be incredible, this or the 15" model will be my next device.

    Glad to see an update, but there is very little differentiation between this and the Advanced 15" apart from the obvious increase in screen size. The top end 15" uses the same CPU (9750H) and same Nvidia Max-Q GPU options. The trade off is the Blade Pro is about 1lb. heaver and marginally larger than the Advanced 15 in terms of dimensions. The major difference is that you get an extra NVMe slot and ethernet, and a UHS-III SD Card reader on the Blade Pro.

    Clearly, what Razer did here was basically take a Advanced 15 configuration, add a larger screen and a few extra ports. Heck, even the power supply is the same, unlike past Blade Pro machines.

    I'm not saying the Blade Pro is underwhelming, it just seems to me that it only makes sense over a 15 Advanced if you REALLY need a 17" screen, or absolutely need the ports or expanded NVMe capacity.

    Otherwise, the Advanced 15 is the only configuration with OLED, 4K, touchscreen, and 240Hz options. I have a 8th Gen Blade Advanced 15 and I'm SERIOUSLY considering getting the 9th Gen OLED version when it is available. I thought 1920x1080 would be limiting for the work I do, but it has proven not to be a problem, but if I can get OLED and a higher resolution...well count me in.

    Who got 8750h blade rtx 2080 felt burnt by this beside me?

    I would not feel burnt by the Blade Pro, it was long overdue for a refresh so you had to know it was coming sooner rather than later. Now the quick refresh of the 15 Advanced is another story. I have the same machine as you and the 9750H is only a 6-8% improvement over the 8750H. These are both mid-range CPUs and you would be hard pressed to really notice the differences. That said, I more than likely will move to the OLED Advanced 15 because the software I run can and will benefit from even a modest performance gain.

    It seems like you mostly addressed your own concern, but want to add that I expect that the Pro's 2080 is going to outperform the one in the Blade 15 by a good margin. Remember, the way these new GPU's are being implemented in laptops, their performance is basically being left up to manufacturers to determine depending on the laptop's cooling solution. So an RTX 2080 in a slim 15" laptop will perform very differently from an RTX 2080 in a big 17" laptop.

    *also it's not an extra NVMe, it's an extra M.2.
    **and don't forget the additional USB-C port
    ***and hopefully the speakers are a bit beefier

    Very Disappointing

    No 4K on a 17" RTX laptop is sad. Can anyone at Razer address this failing? Any plan to fix this?

    With a screen size so big, it really needs a higher resolution screen. The tech exists to go 1440P 144Hz, so if that could be integrated, you would have my attention. Until then, well...

    Atm panel manufacturers arent making 1440P panels with narrow bezels and all laptop brands are basically buying the same panels as all the other brands from the same 4 panel manufacturers. Yeah I hope there’s 1440p 144Hz or even 4K 144Hz, lets blame AUO, BOE, LG etc for being too Lazy making things:smile_:
