    Or if it's possible to buy it from the US and ship it over? I'm going travelling round Europe this summer and then coming back to the UK for uni so obviously selling my desktop and the Razer blade is the only replacement I'd settle for. I need it asap thanks guys :heart:

    If you got an address in the US and someone willing to ship it, sure. If not then you're going to have to wait

    Hey! i am in the same situation, you can buy it from hidevolution that they will sell it to you, but a little bit more expensive

    As ive been seeing it, aeurope seems to get it a few months after it is released. Cant you buy it on the microsoft store when it hit there (probally a month after it releases) and have it shipped to Europe?

    In my opinion Razer should open "an office" in Europe... And the products must be launch at the same time in the US... ;)

    They won't say anything until the new blades ship in the US, if they open now they will get a mass amount of orders and all that + dealing with the blades in the US that got delayed is too much work. Then after that they have the core to deal with...cut them some slack guys xD

    I mean that would probably work fine you would just need someone you could trust in the US to ship it to you. And then hope you don't run into any customs issues with taxes etc... I plan on ordering a blade for myself here in about a week and i'm here in the US.

    well, paying 350$ more, you can get it in hidevolution, and they cover you the ship to the US and back if something happens with warranty. And they cover if you have some dead pixel too.

    But yes, it is still better than getting the OLD razer for about 3000€ (spain). The new with ship and everything is about 2600€ the 2400$ version and 2200€ the 2000$ version..

    I will buy one hahaha

    Worth noting that the warranty won't cover you overseas, and if there's an issue you'll have to send it back to the US which will be expensive.

    Something to consider seeing as it's a new system that will no doubt have some teething issues to address. Be awfully frustrating for you to spend that amount with little consumer support.

    EDIT: You didn't specify if you're also wanting the core. If not then the 2015 Blade could be a better alternative as it's cheaper and a more reliable product than a first batch New Blade while not being that different in truth.

    Yes I do want the core and the chroma lighting. Already spoken with a rep at hidevolution and they do their own warranty for overseas customers. I do plan on waiting a few weeks for reviews but I don't imagine it will come out in the UK until after I leave for travelling so getting it from the US is my only real option.

    Cant you order it on amazon, and just pay the extra shipping to send it to your respective countrys? It may be a few more weeks till its on amazon although.

    Won't be able to make a RMA this way if I do though as the warrenty is valid for the US only. At least if i get it from hidevoloution i'm covered for all of that.

    Their own warranty is another fee on top of the laptop and the shipping charges just so you know. That's an awful lot of inflation you'd be paying for an unknown commodity at this point. I find it hard to hard to believe anyone has the need for something quite as you're making out. It's your money by all means, but that's a really expensive outlay for negligible improvement over the 2015 model. You could just as easily buy that and sell it a few months down the line in the UK with no loss, that gives the New Blade time to be debugged and proper benchmarks to be produced with the core.

    In my honest opinion I think you're being pretty rash with your purchasing and I don't see the immediate benefit for doing so. But each to their own, I hope you don't run into any issues.

    Well the 2015 blade I see on razer's store and from a quick look on google over here is actually more expensive than the 2016 model from hidevoloution plus warranty and shipping. I won't have a permanent address to ship things to from June so unless it comes to the EU store before then (which seems unlikely from what I've seen) it really is the only option. I don't want to pay more for the 2015 model with the Haswell i7–4720HQ when I can get the Skylake i7–6700HQ, 3GB more VRAM, PCIe M.2 SSD as well as thunderbolt 3 capibilities for when I pick up a core when I get back from my travels to take to uni instead of a desktop I won't be able to easily take on the train to uni or fit in the dorm.

    I don't plan on buying the new blade right on it's release date this month and I'll only buy from hidevoloution if it still has not come out in the EU by the back end of May.
