At first glance, the Razer Edge Pro is indistinguishable from other Windows 8 tablets: It’s 2.2 pounds of matte black metal with a 10.1-inch screen and a single Windows button. But pick it up, and you’ll immediately feel the heft in your hands. It’s bulkier than the Surface Pro, and also runs much, much hotter.
That heat flows from the powerful components nestled inside. An Nvidia GPU and an Intel Core i7 CPU allow Razer’s tablet to compete with similarly priced ultrabooks in terms of raw processing performance. The goal? To deliver no-exuses PC gaming in a handheld tablet form factor. Throw in a Gamepad Controller accessory, and the Edge Pro begins to approximate a console gaming experience, care of dual analog sticks, a D-pad and action buttons.
