    Well, it's now 2019, 20 series mobile graphics cards are officially unveiled, and Razer has refreshed 2 of its 3 laptop models in the past year; the Blade 15 and, more recently, the Blade Stealth. So, what's the deal with the Blade Pro? The Blade 15 has been updated 3 separate times since the summer of last year. People have been practically begging for a Blade Pro refresh for a while now, so when can we expect one (if even at all)? It's the oddball of the Razer trilogy currently, being the only one out of the trio rocking outdated hardware and designs, and is overdue for a nice refresh like the other two (imho). What do you guys think?

    Keep saving your money if you aiming Blade Pro with RTX. No one know when Razer update it though, but it’s not easy putting full 2080 inside Blade Pro sexy thin body, and it should be featuring all features on Blade 15 with even better features for the liver you sold;) I would let them testing it longer for better product and not rushing like other manufacturers that already listing it on their high end model. I think this was the Blade 15 success key to be the better gaming performance compared to its competitors on last gen.

    Good point. As much as it hurts having to wait and wait for the next beast laptop, I guess I would rather it be solid at launch than rushed and problematic. Razer seems to be better with handling and preventing hardware and software bugs recently, so hopefully that carries over to the (hypothetical) new BP. Besides, for the price, it better be perfect (or damn near perfect) :big_grin_:

    I dunno. I got 5 racks burning a hole in my pocket right now. Would rather not wait for an RTX blade pro.

    This 100%. Would buy right now if it were out.

    I went with the "not sure" response, only because I think it would be great if they could pull it all together, but I already know I can't afford any of the current iterations of the Blade, let alone a more expensive one. So, yeah, it's an awesome idea, but no I couldn't buy it.

    Blade 15 has option for...

    RTX 2080
    16 GB RAM, upgradable to 64 GB
    i7-8750H
    4K Screen

    Honestly that's like the exact same thing as a Blade Pro, just way better. I think Razer is being very clear that the Blade 15 is meant as the replacement for the Blade Pro.

    Disagree. It's only "better" because the pro hasn't been updated in a year. You're still missing the larger screen, beefier internals, etc. If you think the regular blade is great right now, imagine an updated blade pro. We don't need the 15" to be updated again and again when what is supposed to be Razer's most powerful laptop is now considerably outdated and inferior in comparison to competitors' other available laptops and, arguably, even the new blade advanced. If Razer were officially discontinuing the blade pro, we would and should expect an announcement from them stating such. Lack of transparency with consumers causes a breach of trust and leads to brand disloyalty. Some of us are still holding out for a refreshed pro, because while it may cost that of a decent used car, some of us require the pro's kind of power for productivity, and the older blade pros have delivered on that in the past where the blade 14 and 15 have missed the mark. Some of us need more than a "Blade Advanced" because we do more than casual hobby gaming. Nobody drops $5k+ on a laptop for only Fortnite and Call of Duty.

    I agree, however both fn and cod are lame. Would use my BP for productivity.

    Yeah I mean that's the primary driving reason behind BP shoppers. Most use them for graphically-intensive work like professional photo/video editing, CAD, animation/rendering, etc; all things I wouldn't feel quite comfortable doing on a blade 15.
