Razer Blade Pro (pictured)
A gaming laptop that can outperform a desktop PC? Seems unlikely but Razer’s 17-inch Blade Pro offers more power than any other notebook of such slimline dimensions. In fact, featuring the latest Intel Core i7 quad-core processor and next-generation NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 GPU, it’s the most powerful system ever built by Razer, and it boasts 32GB of memory, too. The stunning 4K monitor offers smooth frame rates and 100 per cent RGB colour accuracy to ensure the visuals match the internal performance. Out in November with a to-be-expected hefty price tag of £3499.
At less than an inch thick and weighing under eight pounds, the Razer Blade Pro’s slender profile is in part thanks to the world’s thinnest vapour chamber cooling system, which, combined with a custom fan design, will dissipate the heat resulting from all that powerful processing. The laptop even comes with a suitably compact AC adapter.
The Blade Pro is the first notebook to utilise Razer’s ultra-low profile mechanical switches, mimicking the feel and sound of a full-size mechanical keyboard. Meanwhile, the mesmerising backlighting effects come courtesy of Razer Chroma and can be customised or synced with your gaming experience.

GoPro has introduced a new line-up of cameras that are waterproof (up to 33 feet) without any need for separate casing. They can also auto-upload to GoPro Plus, a cloud-based subscription service enabling you to access your content wherever, whenever. The original GoPro wide-angle style image capture is still part of the deal, along with the option of non-fisheye perspectives. Hero5 Black (£349) and its little brother, Hero5 Session (£249) are available now.
