    There is something I learned today which I really didn't know. G-Sync is at the moment only available to laptop screens that have a resolution of 1080p. So know I understand why there is no G-Sync in the Blade 2016 and probably won't be in the next one.

    Isn't the Eon 15x 4K and G-Sync enabled?

    I looked it up. Neither the 4K nor the 1080p model has it. The 17X offers G-Sync, but like I mentioned only at 1080p

    The Aorus X5 has a 3k display with G-Sync.

    Come on Razer. "For Gamers. By Gamers." without an option for a 1080p version of the Blade 14 (2016)?! That is exactly the one which is missing and I am waiting for.

    The QHD isnt only for gaming, even though this is gaming computer. This computer is for other jobs that people use. and it is nice for certain programs needed for work.

    No one said it's not a gaming machine. It would be nice, if we also had a refresh of the Blade 14 (2015) Full HD just with 16 GB DDR4 RAM and Skylake CPU for gaming only. And in my opinion that is what's missing!

    If you really need high resolution for work and want to play than go for QHD+.

    I think it would have been great if they did one of two things.

    1. Include a 1080 screen as an option (I think the reason they didn't was that Sharp doesn't make the IGZO panel in 1080, could be wrong though)
    2. Increase the resolution to 4k, to allow for even downscaling to 1080 for gaming.

    P.S. They could have also switched over to OLED panels to further reduce power consumption and increase battery life, color accuracy and contrast.

    or...make the blade pro 4k, I mean the Blade Pro will still be a thing and we're just waiting for the refresh right?
