    Is it worth the money? Someone who actually owns one, it is as beautiful as it looks lol.
    Opinions on how quickly will it be outdated?

    You should wait for them to announce the new blade with the 1060 in it. Most likely happening this weekend :) That one will for sure be worth the money imo. and the GPU will last some time since nvidia's new pascal GPUs are desktop quality

    It's worth it. I got mine on August 29th and still testing it. No fan problems and gameplay is smooth. As for being outdated it is hard to say. People are hoping beyond hope Razer will come out with a V2 of the blade with the nvidia 1060. I've followed Razer when I can but I have rarely seen them go against their production schedule. I'm thinking their 17 inch model will have the 1060 and maybe next year the 2017 razer blade will get the video upgrade. If you have the funds buy it and experience it on your own. Don't wait and hope for something newer and better to come out because then you will never buy anything.

    @simikon NVIDIA gave out two 1060 Blades the past day for a contest. Doubt they'd wait that long.

    I have numerous posts around these forums about how incredible it is. And, having the 960m even if they release the 1060 version soon really doesn't bother me, it does everything I need it too. It's the best $2000 I've ever spent.

    Hate to bust your bubble buddy but it looks like they're changing things up this year, Nvidia already given out two I'm pretty sure 1060 blade releases is intimate or at least an announcement

    The current Blade has a 970m...

    Also, there will be a new one announced in two days, at least wait until the announcement and perhaps there will be a price drop on old Blades.

    I hope your right at least for all the people who are waiting so diligently for this news. For me though I bought the 2016 blade for the refinements to the fan and the thermals as opposed to the 2015 model. Also, I never by the 1st iteration. There's already reports that laptops with the 1060 are fairly loud and hot. It's probably going to take 1-2 versions from Razer to get those factors right. You're not really bursting my bubble because I also believe Razer will come out with a 1060 version of the Blade but when is anyone's guess.

    I just checked this morning it looks like the product page for the 1060 version is already up and you can get the lowest configuration Full HD one for $1799, it also looks like they added a 1 TB version

    @reloader-1 I know, that was a typo, apparently.

    But yeah, I'm perfectly suited with my 2016 blade, honestly I probably wouldn't get the 1060 model until at least the 2017 model for the same reasons as mentioned above.

    Also, the full HD is the same price as the QHD 960m model I have, and the 1060 model is more expensive. I'm perfectly happy with this, lol.
