    Right now I'm hoping this one has garbage battery life, because else I'll be very very sad about purchasing the MX150 version at 1700€ three months ago. :sob:

    I know that feel, bought also Blade 15 and 3 months later there was free tax action here that put it €400 lower lol, that’s what going on in technology world nowaday. However stealth MX150 gpu performance should be better than iris pro on icelake cpu, and chart below is not stealth MX150. I think with some tweak like undervolting recently I saw MX150 hits 1400+ on timespy.

    I feel you as well.

    I think that the MX150 system has some nice benefits over the new version though, oddly enough. The GPU is a little better than the Iris system, and I have a feeling the CPU will be on par with or even slightly better than that in the GTX system (since the GTX system will only be 15 watts).

    Not to say I wouldn't trade for the Iris system if it came in black. The battery savings on that would be really, really awesome and I wouldn't mind a slight decrease graphics in performance when I wasn't connected to the eGPU.

    Hi Razer forum,
    I am posting from Germany.
    A few weeks ago I was thinking about buying the Razer Blade Stealth with MX150 and FHD. I was reading a bit in this Forum about this laptop and got the information about some problems:
    - Discharging during high load -> fixed with bios by reducing the performance a bit (if it is right, what other users are telling about this). The 65W power supply seemed not to be sufficient.
    - step from Intel 620 GPU to MX150 was big, but price step was significant
    - coilwhining (see forum reports, notebookcheck, etc)
    - slow and ghosting display (at least FHD version)

    What I like:
    - Good quality case
    - obviously good cooling system with two fans, three heat pipes
    - still supporting USB A
    - non glare display, bright and 100% rbg
    Currently the price in GER is about 1500 EUR for FHD + MX150 version, 1100 EUR for base version.

    I decided to wait until IFA 2019 and hope there are some further options.
    And now there is announced the reworked Stealth. I appreaciate, Razer was obviously thinking about users feedback.
    - They will deliver the nvidia versions with a 100W power supply, that should provide enough power during load and should also be able to charge the battery at the same time.
    - Great graphics performance with the new nvidia 1650 for a 13.3 inch laptop
    - I heard nothing about coilwhining so far, lets wait for the tests.
    - Also a ghosting display was not mentioned in first hand on reviews, but also here I will wait for the tests.
    - BUT: The price. 2000 EUR for the mid model (FHD + nvidia GPU)! Yes, I have the money to buy it, but I do not want to. There are introduced some similar models on the IFA (ok, not 13.3 inch, but 14), those have a similar hardware setup for much less price. I hope Razer is thinking a bit about the price. I do not understand. They would sell much more laptops with a better price politics. Quality may cost more, but should not be impertinent.

    Hab hier auch schon ein paar Beiträge zu Problemen geschrieben. Aktuell sogar 2 Fälle beim Support. Mal sehen was es wird zu meinem Stealth 2019. Vielleicht sind sie ja nett und tauschen meins gegen die 2019 v2 aus. Würde mich freuen. Aber hier hoffe ich mal auf baldigen Release der V2 und entsprechenden Berichten.

    Have already written a few articles about problems here. Currently even 2 cases of support. Let's see what it becomes my stealth 2019. Maybe they're nice and swap mys for the 2019 v2. I would be happy. But here I hope for the early release of the V2 and corresponding reports.

    Try to make it one, it may confuse CS and may make your case longer.
    Stealth MX150 was also €1700 i think, but if you’re thinking price performance maybe it’ll be difficult decision i always put the priority on an ultrabook the portability, battery life over performance that what I was paying for, always thinking MacBook Pro 13 around same price but you get better hardware and ports.
    There’re some brands that trying to compete with Blade, with thinner or lighter cassis marketing, but the hardware failed even not in a year. For example on around same release maxq 1070 thin light 15 inch laptops, the less issues I find only on more expensive Blade, other are starting to show hardware failure like defect fan, rgb keyboard, gpu, some are even already run hot out of the box. I was doing things with other brands users who are using thin light gaming laptop and often visiting their forum, so I think I know a bit this category issue. I saw even also users who go back again to Blade after using those brands.

    Jep. Das schaut sehr gut aus. Hätte ich mal besser ein paar Monate gewartet. Das Setting lohnt sich mehr als das das aktuelle. Schade aber so ist es eben. Bin ja so dennoch sehr zufrieden mit meinem Stealth. Wenn ich mir in 1-2 Jahren ein neues hole, sollte ja auch schon quasi eine RTX 2070 möglich sein.

    Jep. It looks very good. I would have waited a few months. The setting is worth more than the current one. But it's a pity. I'm still very happy with my stealth. If I get a new one in 1-2 years, an RTX 2070 should be possible.
