Verdict:

Pros:

It’s may be the most powerful tablet in the world capable of running all current PC games including Crysis 3 or Far Cry 3.The Edge is capable of running both Microsoft and third-party apps optimized for the “Metro” UI, but it can also able to run any program you can find on a desktop or laptop. It is a most versatile tablet but it is far from being the best PC gaming laptop.

Cons:

It is much heavier and more expensive than any other tablets in the market.  The camera is sub-par like all camera’s on tablets.

This is good concept for those who love tablet and mobile gaming, this will also surely bring a revolution in the tablet world by forcing others to step up the graphics and CPU hardware, but the concept requires a refinement, the Razer Edge Pro needs to be lighter and far less expensive. Some of the features puts Razer ahead of the Ultrabook crowd. And the plus is that it is a tablet, it’s a PC, and it’s a console (kind of).
