    Hi all,
    I have been saving for a laptop upgrade for awhile, and as a gamer, software developer, and musician the Razerblade has been looking like the top contender for quite some time. That said, before I make the financial investment I figured I would see what my fellow community members' experience has been.

    Any software developers have info on how well the Blade handles workarounds for iOS development? This could be experience in the form of anything from a Hackintosh install to running some VM. General software development experience on the laptop is always welcome.

    How well does the new Blade support multiple external monitors?

    What internal hardware is accessible and upgradeable? I could not seem to easily find information on Razer's system warranty to see what would void it as well. The SSD, RAM, etc. it comes with is nice, but it's always good to know what future options are possible.

    This was my first thread posted, so hopefully I got it in the right forum and whatnot! Any general experience with the Blade is welcome! Thanks in advance!

    External monitors should work fine. There is an HDMI port for all your external monitor needs.

    The only things that are really modifiable are the SSD and the wifi card. Everything else is pretty much soldered onto the motherboard.

    Have you output to multiple monitors at once? I haven't used USB-C myself, and getting an adapter for the single HDMI is something I would prefer to avoid.

    I believe there is a thread somewhere that had a user not being able to output to MULTIPLE monitors and this restriction was confirmed by Razer.

    You can have 1 external and the laptop screen at most. Cant use HDMI / USB-C concurrently to output to 2 external monitors. Its either or

    Not too sure if you got a USB-C dock that supports multiple monitors though. That should work if you really need multiple externals

    How about this monitor,

    I am planning to buy two of it. I have extra money to burn from Blade 14 Kabylake because I will buy FHD instead waiting UHD forever. Linus make a Valerie project joke with it. Its concept portable USB powered monitor is very nice, even actually for the price you could get good 120 Hz gaming monitor, but i move a lot and could use it also for PS4 slim on go besides using it with blade.
    I live in Germany, this monitor seems more familiar in US, is anyone has experience with it? Could I play with it a triple monitor games in medium setting on Blade gtx1060?

    Yeah I thought I had seen this at some point too, but couldn't find it, so I figured I would ask. Thanks!
