  1. Im a student at a Technical High School where im actually supposed to be picking a major (yeah we have majors at my high school lol) and im going into Software Engineering, it offers A+ and SQL Database certifications so. Everyone here is a big gamer and alot of friends use Razer Products. and I myself have Razer peripherals. Im asking how effective would the Razer Blade Stealth be as a portable notebook and chrome machine running onenote, word, powerpoint, and excel, doing 3D CAD on Autodesk Inventor and programming. I would also like to do some light gaming playing games such as Fallout 3 and New Vegas or Counterstrike Global Offensive as I have the occasional period of down time between the end of my classes and my clubs. Im basically asking how effective would this be for my needs, and if it seems worth a buy because I need to convince my parents to allow me to purchase it.

    As long as you'll be able to give it a bit of a charge during school (or don't use it all day) as the battery life is a little on the short side (4.5-5 hours) then I'd definitely recommend the blade stealth. Get the QHD and upgrade the SSD if you want more space (I think you can buy up to 512GB but honestly don't know).

    Its very speedy for programming, ms office and some light gaming. Also looks great and is very light!

    Well the specifications of the laptop is good so when it comes to rendering it's good.

    I recommend it as a programming machine but strongly don't recommend as a rendering machine... even if you have a core and a good graphics card.
    Buy a quad-core machine like blade. it will be better than that.

    I am not recommending it. Lacking home/end is a big issue for me.

    It's going to be good for programming and stuff, but rendering is going to be on the weaker side, so if you want to render something at home (I presume you're not going to be rendering at your school) get the Core to help you with rendering.
    Oh, I know that feeling... wait. Convince your parents to allow you to purchase it? With your own money? Well if they're not buying it why would you need a permission?
     
  7. I have a job but it's direct deposit and my parents are making me save up for college lol

    Well it's your own money, and if you're older than 18 you have every legal right to spend it on your own.

    I'm not sure I'd go down that road of rebellion yet. Better to use another tack: maybe telling them that you can claim it as an expense for training for your career on taxes. With that, you might even be able to talk them into a Blade, and not a Blade Stealth.
