Snorkel! See I can do it too
yea pls, the bezels are terrible, pls make them smaller
Yeah I agree with lolcheese, i'd be happy with the dual core i7 and the only 8gb ram but the bezels on the screen make it seem less premium, and less sleek if you get me.
EDIT: It seems even the marketing team agree with us, on the promotional video the bezels look way less significant! Plus i think this looks so so sexy with just the smaller bezels! My money is waiting Razer...
All of this, I don't care if it costs more. These upgrades (if optional) would allow you to take this ultrabook from to developer workstation status. Pair it with the core, and you've got a solid gaming machine that's portable and usable for work while not at home gaming.
Better Battery Life.
Micro SD card slot.
The low power dual core CPU and small GPU is fine for the Stealth. I would much rather have a bigger battery. I am fully willing to lug the extra weight. Because of the Core, I do not want the quad core or bigger GPU. I have my Blade for that. For the Stealth, I want light with lots of battery life. Right now it is good enough for me, but it would be amazing with a bigger battery.
"Good enough" and "fine" are very relative terms, the current iteration may be fine for you, but in order to have the stealth + core not be throttled by the stealth is to give it 4 core cores.
If there were no throttling due to the 2 core setup, I'd be fine with it as is, but I'll be very surprised if there isn't some CPU throttling on the Stealth + Core with some of the more demanding games.
Maybe go and buy XPS13 right away? It has all this and Iris graphics.
Having had a RBS for a week now, I am very thrilled with what it offers - though I am under no illusions that this thing is anything more than an ultrabook. In that vein, what I would like to see for the next iteration of the RBS is:
Iris Graphics paired with a high end, dual core, CPU.
Thinner bezels offering a slight increase in screen real estate (rather than making the machine smaller) would be nice, but not if it sacrifices the stability of the screen when being used as a touchscreen interface. Because the touchscreen is great.
Some work on Synapse. It needs to be faster to load, and utilise less resources. The ability to retain custom profiles offline, so that they load as the PC turns on rather than as Synapse boots up, and better retention of profiles when switching from Chroma supported apps would be nice. I would also like the keyboard to be able to lit less than 33% when on battery.
Battery life needs an increase by a minimum of 25%.
16GB of DDR4 RAM.
The speakers are fine for what they are, but any increase in quality would be really appreciated. Though these are far better than most (all?) alternatives in this size range.
Something to alleviate the retention of fingerprint marks and smudges, both on the body and the screen. This is quite important, as it can turn the RBS from an iconic and wonderfully designed PC into a dirty, smeary, mess in next to no time.
Logo on the back needs a little work. Chroma maybe, and smaller? As it is, I have it disabled all the time, as it seems garish and pointless, especially coupled with the lack of battery life and its possible contribution to that.
That all said, the Razer Blade Stealth is pretty great for what it is; It hits the right price point, which it really needs to keep. It is thin, light and the thermals are great for general usage. So it doesn't really need much for the RBS R2 to be absolutely amazing. Most of it will come with time and the advancement of technology.
Smaller bezels and base option of 256gb PCIe
Why? Does having a base option of 128gb hurt you in any way?
I'd rather they still make a 128gb version and pass the cost savings along.
No, I just think it would be better because files are getting bigger and people who buy it for gaming with the core, it works just be easier
That's all fine, but why does Razer having a 128gb version affect any of that? Personally, I owned one and for an ultra book it's perfectly fine.
Getting a 256gb base model would push prices by at least $100. Is that what you want?
2 tb3 and 2 type A is all the i/o that you need
Should I wait for the 2017 Razer blade stealth or should I just get the qhd model now? I'm in Malaysia so it might take some time before it reaches the Singapore/Malaysian store
From what I know about Razer, there not going to carry the blades at there stores because they think that there website is the best place to buy them, but I'm really just going off what I heard about San Francisco so I could be totally wrong
I made an account for this,
Honestly, I'd have already bought one if they had 16GB memory and a quad core CPU. I don't care about battery life, so long as it lasted for an entire movie I'd be fine.
I just can't justify a laptop that I can't run VMs on. I am excited for next year though as I will be getting at least one of these if those requirements are met.
Linux support across all razer systems would be great!
Although it goes against their hopes of having the laptop as small as possible, I would love to see a version without soldered RAM, so that they can leave the laptop at a lower price than the normal blade by giving it 8gb, but also allow for upgrades to 16 or maybe even 32 down the line when games and software get more demanding!
Agree. However somehow I think we should have a more powerful cpu than low power version, if razer could do better in heat management. The idea is to have a cool and quiet laptop(I often go travel so I do use laptop on top of my lap, it shouldn't "burn" me) and a gaming machine once plug razer core in (when I back home I should be able to use it to play games). And heat = fan in high speed mode = more dust = more maintenance. I'm lazy, I don't want to tear down my laptop every year to do the cleaning.
I do think razer should make ram exchangeable so that users could do the upgrade latter. We all see how big the ram price different could be in 1 or 2 years. Same goes with battery, I don't understand why everyone follows apple to make battery not detachable. I missed days that I could go on a trip with one backup battery.
