    Who wants my Stealth now? :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    No 1080p? Bad Razer, bad.

    Also, on the bright side, if you want Pascal, you can connect the Razer Core and put in a Pascal card.

    $2000 is a great price! Now I really want to know what the Core will cost! If the total cost of the Stealth + Core + graphics card is greater than $2k (and if you were planning on buying all of the above in the first place), it might be worth it to get the regular Razer Blade, which may not be as small and mobile as the Stealth, but is still pretty darn light!

    Another bump for a 1080P version. Is this display going to be as "undimmable" as last year's or has that been fixed?

    There was an article I read today, it's $500 dollars for the core, or $400 with the purchase of a Blade

    I'm really hoping that a 1080p model is coming soon. That is truly the sweet spot of gaming on a laptop, no scaling issues and much better fps.

    That being said, I did pre-order this but still keeping my fingers crossed for a 1080p version (with 16gb of RAM!)

    It's priced VERY competitively.

    I would LOVE a 1080p non-touch version for those seeking A) better battery life, B) no scaling tweaking, and C) saving a few bucks.

    I want! :D (it is still not available for my country :slightly_sad: )
    WHAT? 500$ for core?? Good God...

    Laptop is great, at first I was little disappointed with 970m but then I realized then you can plug Core to it. New i7 should handle most graphics card, but 40Gbps is not so much comparing to pci-e :) As always great gaming machine! But still, 4k on laptop isn't good ideas, especially for gaming. I'm not sure if 970m can handle most games in 4k ;)
    But for us (Europa) such laptop is really not profitable. It costs 2000$ in US (Blade 14 - after discount 1600$) but in Europe price is still at 2.500 Euro !!!! That's sick! How can I afford it? I'm not even saying about Stealth that still isn't available...
    All I can say is - Razer is doing good job, but only for USA :slightly_sad:

    Please make it avaiable in Europe soon, I think it's perfect idea. It's cheaper and if you want Pascal card can connect it to Core. Looks sweet I want it in Europe as soon as possible , please Razer make it happen.

    SO nice, and I just told someone yesterday core would work with more than Stealth.

    Assume they used the same keyboard & trackpad as previous blade? (With Chroma and new font on keycaps of course, but I HATE that it still doesn't illuminate the special characters!) :/

    Honestly hoping the price drops a little more on last year's FHD.

    Other than the new keyboard and cpu not much else changed right?

    I do like the fact that the starting price is a lot cheaper than previous models at starts off at 256 go but still a shit load of money.
    Time to check my life savings and see if I even have enough
     
  17. Also a USB type C (Thunderbolt) but yea thats all :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: Was hoping for a 4k screen but I dont think thats happening till 2017 or 2018 haha.

    I think more VRAM too for the GPU... also marginally lighter.
     
  20. Makes me wish I'd waited to get my Stealth. Such is life.
