    After using 2.5 years of my first gen razer blade stealth, it's now slowly falling apart, and I've been fixing it with tape, and other things where it just looks battle-scarred.
    So i'm thinking about getting a new laptop, however, despite how little of a lifespan my razer blade stealth has lasted, i'm stilling look to buy a new razer laptop, but none of the 2019 version is a good fit for me.
    So I just want to know what's an estimated time of the next razer blade release based on past released dates, or should i just buy a dell or msi and not wait instead?
    Thanks,

    The Stealth and Blade 15 have both just been updated in the past few months. It's probably going to be a while, unless you're holding out for the 17" Blade Pro.

    Interesting. I'd like to know what details don't make them a good fit?

    Well, for the 2019 Blade Stealh, I kind of explained it in this thread with what changes I wanted (https://insider.razer.com/index.php...e-in-mid-late-2019-razer-blade-stealth.46994/)

    For the 2018 and 2019 blade 15, personally it was the new design (not the bezels but the box and sharp edges) and price (it's alright priced in USD, by conversion to AUD just makes it not as appealing), but these can be mostly ignored.
    The screen was a bummer, because of it not being 1440p or touchscreen, and despite the 1080p screen, it still had a somewhat short battery life span (2 more hours on the battery and it would be a buy).
    Same with them sticking to the old speaker grill, the plastic falls out pretty easily, so don't understand why they didn't just laser cut it into the chassis instead.
    All of these reasons combined just made me want to wait, or look for other solutions such as MSI or Asus or Gigabyte. :)

    Awesome, this is great. This is the kind of feedback we like to see. It's so much better than, "Razer sucks, I'm buying [another brand]."

    Thanks!

    Yeah, I really like the brand and the products (as you can see from my signature i own quite a lot of razer products, most of them are the og ones as well). I really want to buy a new Razer laptop, but none of them fit.
    I was just about to buy the blade 15 1070 version because it was 20+% and pretty worth, but after really thinking about my needs, I painfully decided to wait till the end of the year.

    As my razer blade stealth is still somewhat usable, and with the release of possibly new intel cpu, i felt like i should wait. Plus you responding made me feel like the next razer blade 15 or stealth is gonna fit me well.:smile_:

    To be very honest, I really just want a touch screen panel for the same or similar price (both the stealth and 15), with second importance, being 1440p (not 4k, that's overkill on battery and price). And then ofc battery life,

    And the rest as mentioned above such as price, more curves in the design and speaker grills, so on...

    Thanks!

    I share a similar feeling about your current lineup, the relatively short battery life of the 15" and 17" inches made it hard for me to feel entirely positively about them. As for the 13", price and lack of a touch panel on the lower end models it makes me doubt that option also quite a bit, even though it felt like pretty much the perfect fit for me (apart from the power cap on the CPU that makes it bottleneck any attempt at pairing it with an eGPU).
