    What a beast! Man, Can't even get a 3080 for my PC! Seems Pre-builds and laptops are the way to go?

    So, I have had my system for about a month along with getting the Tartarus Pro with it. I paid the 10 bucks for 3-5 business days, and almost cried when I saw it was being held by customs on day 2, & after signing up for shipping updates they said should arrive on day 5 or 6. Due to excitement, this was a very sad moment. However, It arrived on day 4 I got a notification and barely an hour and a half later the knock at my door came.
    So, I had planned to make an open box video for it, but my daughter had my action camera, putting me in a position where I couldn't resist.
    So, first, it was awesome from the first time I picked it up all the way to playing my first games. It reminds me of a stealth bomber just a slick clean design, but the solid metal framing made it feel like a tank. The extra weight may both some but it wasn't much of a difference from my Surface Pro 7 to me. The design and metal shell, combined with that little extra weight were almost like a mental connection to the power that was inside.

    Gaming wise- I installed a decent variety of games, and from a range of sources: Starcraft 2 from Blizzard, Counter-Strike & Destiny 2 from Steam, Guild Wars 2 from ArenaNet, Mechwarrior 5 from Xbox game pass ultimate, and also my DJ DAW software and audio production software, and began the experience. Now I choose to Run Cortex whenever gaming so I can boost my system and get FPS reports. Every game I played even when also running Spotify or Apple music +Discord in the background gave me an average FPS low of 58 & high in the 90's usually with max graphics and textures I was still maintaining around 76 FPS in every game. So, solid home run in that front.
    Now one thing I started noticing right away was how different in-game loading took place. In every game, I have played or program I have run, I am not prepared for how fast your back to gameplay. I mean I go to take a drink and I end up in a position where I only just got the cap off and was about to drink. It's amazing and has made me better and planning my timing better. For something that has made things inconvenient at times, it's definitely something I am impressed and happy to have.
    After getting it I did search for the parts to max out the specs (2 TB SSD + 64 GB RAM) & was surprised by the options available and how even the higher quality options were really not bad for what your getting. Unlike some manufacturers that soldered in the Ram that came with the device and had the other open slot. Razer has made everything easy and accessible to upgrade without issues. The GPU can be upgraded later with the CORE eGPU and desktop external graphics card later as well, but by the time I need to do that I am guessing that Razer will have made a new CORE that is even more functional at improving system performance.
    After dropping nearly $3k on the system and Tartarus Pro, with the Razer Care plan too, I can say with 100% confidence, I haven't even slightly felt buyers remorse or regretted getting it. It's without a doubt one of the best things I have bought, and now I am just looking forward to getting the Razer Kiyo and Seiren to start streaming and getting a new gaming desk and chair. If I could drop another $500 on the Razer Gaming chair I would without a doubt, but those funds will be used for new gaming content, getting another SSD, the Chroma Laptop Dock for my new blade, and streaming gear. So it will have to wait.
