Recently, Gaming hardware manufacturer Razer overhauled its most popular Laptop with some seriously powerful specs, a thin profile, and a 4K touch Screen. The new laptop comes with a mechanical keyboard too.

The laptop  is powered by a Core i7-6700HQ processor. As the 6000 series suggests, the i7 is based on last year’s Skylake architecture. While it is not the newest Quad Core, these are still the most powerful one available for sale.

The Laptop has a 17-inch 4K display that comes with G-Sync and 100% Adobe RGB coverage, surprisingly, Razer Pro’s screen is also Touch enabled.

Like its brothers, Blade Pro is a gaming Laptop and to power the 4K screen and run games, Razer has added a Nvidia GeFource GTX 1080. Mind you, its is a Desktop card, not a Laptop one, so you can expect pretty much high-end gaming desktop grade performance from this beast.

Blade Pro comes with 32 Gig of 2113 MHz DDR4 RAM and you can pick between 512 GB to 2 TB of M.2 Solid State Storage. The laptop also packs a Killer DoubleShot Pro network interface card and supports 802.11ac wireless to make sure the lowest possible latency.

While all these specs are impressive for a Laptop that is just as thick as a MacBook Pro, Razer Pro’s biggest trick up its sleeve is a mechanical keyboard.

While Razer is not the first one to cram a Mechanical Keyboard in a Laptop, this is certainly the best looking and most practical implementation yet. MSI Released GT80 two year ago with a Cherry MX Brown mechanical keyboard, but that thing was way too bulky.

If you are a PC gamer, I am sure that your mouth must be watering to get that piece of engineering on your hand, but there are some compromises too. While Razor Pro is slim, it still weights 7.8 pounds and as long the battery is, powering those specs on a 4K display is not going to be possible for a long time without plugging it into a wall adapter.

And Razer Blade Pro starts selling at $3700.
