The Razer Pro V2 is the latest and greatest iteration of the Razer high-end gaming laptop, with a host of powerful components packaged into a sleek, attractive frame. With more than enough power to function as a desktop replacement, the Razer Pro V2 is thin enough to remain portable without compromising any gaming capability.
The Razer Pro V2 is an extremely powerful gaming system, but you wouldn’t necessarily know from looking at it. Aesthetically it is incredibly slim, sleek, and inconspicuous; unlike the majority of monstrous high-end gaming machines that look as if they were designed with alien technology. For a lot of gamers and laptop consumers alike, I believe that this is a huge plus. Not everyone wants their laptop to be a constant statement of excess and expense, and many will appreciate that the Razer Pro V2 contains all the power they desire while remaining visually modest.
The highlights of this machine are without a doubt the 17.3” 4K-resolution touchscreen display and the ultra-low-profile built in mechanical keyboard. The 4K screen takes full advantage of the Nvidia® GeForce® 1080 GTX graphics card, offering crystal clear images with 8.3 million pixels to work with. It is also optimized for graphic designers, photo editors, content creators, and the like, with 100% Adobe color space coverage. This laptop is designed for gamers but keeps in mind other consumers that may use it for artistic endeavors or productivity. Razer even caters towards music producers, offering a full license of FL Studio 12 Producer Edition, encouraging emerging musicians to consider their product over the industry standard MacBook Pro. The keyboard looks as if it’s membrane-based, but in fact it features an ultra slim chiclet keycap mechanical keyboard, fit with anti-ghosting technology and amazing RGB LED customization. Razer Chroma Lighting features LEDs with 16.8 million color options and a plethora of awesome lighting effects. I don’t want to spoil them all, so head to their website to see a full list of possibilities.
The only downsides of the Razer Pro V2 are about what you’d expect of a high-end gaming super machine. With so much onboard power in such a compact space, the heating regulation and battery life are both subpar. With the V2 update the cooling may be slightly more effective than the previous version, but I’m guessing that it won’t be a substantial improvement given the nature of the machine.
