    I'm a bit surprised that Razer news are all over the interwebs without a single *official* mention on Insider.

    I've been waiting for something like this for years, *EXCEPT* that I'm not too fond of mercury white.
    I'd be surprised if I were the only one... Let's see where folk stand on this point.

    Hopefully, it's not too late to influence Razer to release their RTX Studio Edition Blades in at least *one* additional color besides mercury white. To be entirely honest, it's mostly the white keyboard that looks really odd (nothing professional or studio-inspired, if you ask me), the chassis I could live with if I had to. Worst case, I'd put a nice skin on the thing...

    I already bought my Razer Blade 15 since my old laptop was breaking down and I really need to get a new one to do work in Unity but if the Razer Blade Studio Edition came out a bit earlier, I may have opted for that one.

    Although Quartz Pink is a very popular color and I could see it in a lot of peripherals and future laptops to come, I think that the Studio Edition should come in Gunmetal Grey next since it is the most professional looking one. The target audience for this device are likely the ones to bring their device to the office and scrum meetings so a Gunmetal Grey color makes the most sense. The black one works too but it needs to get rid of the illuminated logo in the back in favor of a tone-on-tone logo.

    +1 for Gunmetal Grey (although I chose Razer Black above)

    -1 for the forum tools that don't allow me to change the option from Gunmetal to Gunmetal Grey

    I haven't seen mercury white in person. Online picks it looks a bit off to me. Quartz is kinda pretty. I'd rock it just scare people. Gunmetal is by far the best color Razer has released though. I'd be happy if they made that more available on any system.

    I don't know if the Mercury White is supposed to make the Blade look more Mac like. . .but it really doesn't.

    I'm guessing they're going with a color that most closely resembles the main competition (macbooks).

    I bought a Mercury White 15 to hold me over... I actually love it. The color is fantastic. I also have a Black 15 through my work and while I like it too, I love that the Mercury White is always clean and doesn’t have the smudges. Honestly, the black one reminds me of an, corporate Lenovo or Dell because it’s bland and dirty all the time. My black one looks great in certain situations, but really bad in others. My Mercury White always looks good.

    I could get behind gunmetal. But I’m also totally fine with the Mercury White now that I’ve owned a machine in that finish for a month now.

    In that case, they should definitely go with `gunmetal gray` considering that `space gray` is far more popular than `silver` when it comes to Apple products. (Here, I'm assuming that Razer's `Mercury White` approximates the latter.)
