    I know a bunch of you are really excited for the new line of Razer blades, so i thought i would make a post of what we MIGHT / hope to see in it. There are my expectations (needed and preferred). Please post what you would like to see ;)

    NEEDED:
    -(obv) An overall upgrade to hardware
    -A 900 series GPU
    -(obv) fix known problems with current gen

    PREFERABLE:
    -An improved screen on the 17" (idk what they can do for the 14")
    -RBG keys to match the Chroma line
    -(my preference) Lose the touch screen on the 17". (I have had the first 2 gens of the Razer blade and i'm currently on the 2nd gen and have yet to find a good use for the touch screen. I just put on the computer stat app because that's the only thing i find somewhat useful lol)

    Razer makes a 17" and a 14", not a 15".

    Thunderbolt 2 port / external dock for the blade with many other ports (the ones that don't fit on the Blade's thin design like a LAN port for example and more USB ports...). I don't care about Blade's keyboard lighting. I'm using blackwidow chroma anyway.

    I would also like to see a budget blade, with less powerful specs but more affordable for someone who doesn't have a ton of money.

    Not really possible with the sleek design and laptop.

    I think this could be done, in a 11.6" form factor.

    Similar to how the Razer Edge was much cheaper than a Razer Blade or Blade Pro.

    I just copied this post that I wrote on another discussion but I think it would be what razer should do without totally changing much.
    I figure Razer should do the rgb keyboard because it is a good idea but as like a $50 option because it is not really needed but I think you guys really like it. I have a razer blade and I really don't think that they should put a mechanical keyboard because the whole point of the notebook is portability, power and a bad ass looking pc and the mechanical keyboard would ruin all 3 points. Plus if you really need one you could bring it separate. In my opinion logical upgrades would be 16 GB of ram, the GTX 970m with 4-6 GB of video ram and for them to try there hardest to improve cooling. It's a really good computer but something that would be really nice would be if they added a display port and thunderbolt port instead of HDMI because those two ports are smaller, much better output and can be easily adapted. The last thing would be if razer added a separate microphone jack in addition to there aidio/mic combo so people with separate audio and mic cables can plug there stuff in (its not really a big deal but would be nice to see).

    I Razer would add a few more spots that light up (Chroma line of course). At first I wanted mechanical keys, but then I read the post above and am no longer sure...

    Hi, in my view the key improvement to apply on 2015 Razer Blade 14' is to add a mini display port output. Screen is QHD+, great, and I would expect to connect a 4K monitor/TV and get at least 3200x1800 screen resolution. Of course if 4K is doable by the GPU, 3 840 × 2 160 output is even better.
    In addition : adding an ethernet port, sd card reader? (there's plenty space on both lateral sides)
    That way Razer Blade can fully compete with Aorus X3+ & Asus GX500.

    I totally agree. I am not sure if they can but some time in the near future I would like to see multiple graphics and may be for home a graphics amplifier like what alien ware did only it wouldn't need a proprietary connection, it would just use the power port.

    I'd love to see a better screen resolution on the Blade Pro. I absolutely love using it on the go, it gives me so much screen estate, but I would really like a 3K display like the 14".

    Regardless of what the stats are ... the only change I'd make to the new Razer Blade is that I think they should give me one to Q/A test! LOL =D

    The new edge will fit what you want. Hopefully razer is still planning to make new edge.

    Please god add SEPERATE ports for headphone and mic not just one mashed together one! Would make things a heck of a lot easier! Also make it upgradablle if you could, I love the slick design of the blade but it would be great if I could just add a little bit of RAM or bigger hardrive or maybe even a different processor. Also even if you wouldn't be able to make it upgradable it would be amazing if you could make it so the battery itself was ejectable. I normally leave my laptop plugged in when I'm playing, or even browsing, and over time leaving the battery in for too long it eventually gets fried, so if I could take it out until I actually need to use it like if I go traveling or something so it doesn't get fried...that would be great. One last thing, it would be really nice would be if they added a display port and thunderbolt port instead of HDMI.

    Thanks for reading this. :)

    An upgrade to an Intel Core i7 with max 3.80Ghz speed and a NVIDIA GTX 970M or 980M - maybe even SLI.

    Quick charging battery would be cool too.

    Really looking forward to another 14" slim form factor blade with powerful specs. All the bells and whistles are a nice addition but for me the beauty of the blade is the pure power in the sleek design.
