    Pretty cool stuff. After owning the 2018 15" Blade with 144hz panel, I'm going to be fine with the Blade Pro's screen as well (for work and play)
    I'm at the verge of getting one. But can someone please clarify this to me:

    Does the extra M.2 slot supports NVMe SSD?

    According to Razer chat with sales, the laptop should be available to purchase this week, whatever that means... so maybe tomorrow or this weekend

    Would purchase if it had higher resolution. I need for work and 4k is necessary. 17" would be great. Will stick to my Mac for now I guess :slightly_sad:
    Maybe eventually...

    You can also just use a monitor for 4k applications, don't really think the difference between 17" 1080p and 4k is noticeable

    You don't mean to suggest that we should lug around an additional monitor with the Blade Pro, right?
    Also, if you don't think the difference is noticeable than I'm guessing you've barely ever used a 4K display.
    If nothing else, I can have 4 VM:s each running 1080p tiled on my display at the same time.
    (Of course, the same 4x screen-real-estate idea applies to any other application you routinely use.)
    Try that on a 1080p display!

    I have a desktop, so that doesn’t interest me too much. But I work remotely from a laptop quite a bit as an architect and modeling applications GREATLY benefit from more pixels. Can see more of what I’m designing instead of half the screen being filled with menus.

    Our software is very GPU intensive too. So it’s hard to find a great laptop. All the 4K screens have crap GPUs. All the 2080 devices have crap screens that only care about refresh rate.

    There really isn’t a company who sells a product to my industry. Actually I take that back. My office still uses about a dozen of the last gen Razer Blade Pro. Still firing on all cylinders but certainly outdated in so many ways.

    Hmm... Interesting...

    Dell's Precision line has Quadro:s (or Radeon Pro:s, if that's what floats your boat), which -although over-priced- are far from crap. They also have a 4K display option. I used to have a 7710 at work and loved it (not as sleek as the Blade Pro and heavier as well, but well built and functional). I'd expect a 7740 to pop up soon, with 9th gen Intel parts (and perhaps a Turing-based Quadro RTX, if those get released for mobile platforms)...

    Does the extra M.2 slot supports NVMe SSD?

    This was asked above by someone else, still looking for the answer as well?
