Razer Blade Pro Gaming Laptop – 17″ 4K Touchscreen Gaming Laptop (i7-7820HK, 32 GB RAM, 1 TB SSD, GTX 1080 8GB GDDR5X VRAM) – VR Ready
For those of you who play games at a competitive level we have the Razor Blade Pro. Yep, the same company that produces those sick mice, and those crazy mechanical keyboards is now producing an even sicker laptop! This hot shot of a device comes packed with of course a seventeen inch display and it is also the WORLD’S first THX certified mobile device! To put things in perspective, this will make you feel like you are in the movie, or in the game you are playing. The audio will be more than outstanding, and if THX put its good name on it you know it is going to be great. We haven’t even made it to the good specs yet folks, and I can tell those serious gamers out there are already excited.
The Razor Blade Pro comes with an Intel i7 quad core processor that is overclocked right out of the box at 4.3 gigahertz. However, if you want to slow it down the other speed settings are as follows, 2.9 gigahertz, and 3.9 gigahertz. Also, this monster of a laptop has a Nvidia GTX 1080 that comes equipped with 8 gigabytes of GDDR5X VRAM. This laptop also comes with a great mechanical keyboard which is perfect for the avid gamer. You guys probably knew that already seeing how Razor makes all of their equipment specifically for gamers. The 17.3 inch screen can also be used for a touch display in case you are tired of using the mice and keyboard approach which I find very fascinating, because many laptops don’t usually offer this feature. This baby also comes packed with thirty two gigabytes of RAM. This outright destroys some desktop models as far as power and graphics card capabilities go, and Razor is pricing this model for just under $4,000 dollars US. Not really a terrible price considering what all comes inside this beast!
ASUS ROG G752VS-XB72K – OC Edition
ASUS is at it again everybody, but this time they are offering a laptop called the ROG OC Edition. This laptop also has a 17.3 inch display that offers the user the privledge of having 178 degree viewing angles. They also boast that their mobile hyper chamber will make your GPU run about six percent faster. Speed is always of importance when we are technology and the OC Edition doesn’t stop there. They even have put in a one terabyte hard drive that runs at 7200 RPMS. That is one fast hard drive! Their processor is a six generation Intel i7-6820HK that runs about 2.7 gigahertz. The graphics card is basically identical to the one Razor has put in their model except this Nvidia is a GTX 1070 instead of a 1080. If you are in the mood for some long gaming nights this will be a machine that won’t cease to amaze you. I would imagine you can run any games on ultra high settings with this guy.
Finally, the ROG OC edition comes with 32 gigabytes of DDR4 ram that will help you accomplish exactly those kinds of missions. You will be dragging kids around every corner, and with this machine its mobile so you can take it anywhere and play when you want, and as much as you want. The price comes in at just over $2,000 dollars from Amazon.
XOTIC MSI GE72 Apache – 17.3″ 120Hz WideView Angle Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7-7700HQ GTX1050 16GB DDR4 1TB HDD Win10 Kabylake
If you guys are looking for high end performance and you want to try and stay in the thousand dollar range the MSI GE72 can help you do so. This laptop has a quad core processor that is another Intel seventh generation. This processor is an i7-7700HQ which also has the option to turbo boost its speed up to 3.8 gigahertz. The display on here states that the 17.3 inch display is specially outfitted for wide angle HD viewing which will be great with the webcam it comes with that is fully functional at 1080p. This laptop is also trying to rival the ROG OC edition because MSI has also added a 7200 RPM hard drive with one terabyte of storage. Also, if you are looking for flash and sleek the keyboard can be customized to have all keys display a different vibrant color. Yep, a fully customizable backlit keyboard! That is crazy!

The graphics card is also another Nvidia card, but it is a GTX 1050 and you will have a total of sixteen gigabytes of DDR4 RAM to complement this amazing thing! I believe this laptop can also have multiple personalities as well, no pun intended. You might be saying, “why is that”? Well, it also comes with four speakers and a subwoofer so you can jam out with extreme prejudice! This is definitely a jack of all trades laptop with a very reasonable price. That is something that is very hard to find with new technology. If you end up buying this product from MSI you can also expect it to come with a DVD supermulti drive which can be used to just read discs, burn them, or both. We just keep stacking the deck here for MSI, but that is okay because it is an amazing machine with tons of cool stuff and has a killer price. Oops, did I mention the word price? The price for this version is actually only just over $1,000 dollars as of right now. This is a killer deal guys, and I would pick this one up as fast as I could!
Here is another big name in the computer world, Alienware. Alienware has been known for designing some of the most powerful gaming computers in the last few decades, and their name definitely has stood the test of time. Alienware starts off listing VR ready features to grab a select market demographic, and they also say that their keyboard can execute over 108 key commands per minute due to n-key rollover technology.
Furthermore, their hinge design allows for better ventilation, and higher quality sound. The hardware specifics are listed as the laptop having a sixth generation Intel i7-6820HK processor which as you know is a quad core processor. The laptop itself also comes with an Nvidia GTX 1070 which is very high performance too! To support the graphics card we can also expect to have between eight and thirty two gigabytes of DDR4 Ram, but these options are customizable and getting thirty two gigs of this stuff will run you an extra three hundred dollars. I just wanted to make sure you all are aware of this before pressing that buy button and getting a laptop with only eight gigs of ram instead of thirty two. Always read the fine print! This laptop will also give you an eye tracking Tobii webcam and an antiglare display. The Alienware 17 also comes packed with a 7200RPM terabyte hard drive just like our previous companies and you can also select additional storage if you choose, for a fee of course. Straight from the factory the Alienware 17 is going to cost just under $2,000 USD, so it is more than a thousand dollars, but not terribly expensive like some other models like the Acer Predator that was mentioned in a previous article.

Who will we crown king of the seventeen inch laptops? Right now believe it or not, the current title holder is going to be MSI GE72 due to its awesome features, great price, and sexy hardware!
