    I've got myself the 2013 14' and I love it (albeit its been sent back for warranty twice already, this time for about a month now for a faulty screen that glittered and sparkled and a charger that ticked like a bomb) I still love it.. don't tell me I made a bad decision buying a luxury laptop from a company that only just started making them!! And even though I'm to my great misfortune forced to use my housemates evil mac to type this (He's loving every minute of it) I still love the Blade. Curse your awesomeness Razer Blade!!

    I digress!

    I was just wondering cause I couldn't really find much on a surface search about it, but what exactly am I losing out on not having the 2014 version besides a fancy touch screen, I frankly prefer the matte type screen cause it doesn't reflect the world at me. Are there things that I can't do, games I can't play or is it just a slightly more powerful machine?
     
  2. I love my Razer Blade 2014 14" but it seems to have similar issues. First time I sent it back due to the gpu being faulty, they said they replaced the motherboard and shiped it back. Worked well for about a month before it starting making a static whining noise and during a game, it switched back and forth to the desktop a few times then completely died. I don't know how I feel at the moment spending $2400 on a computer that is being fixed in California (for the second time) in less than 6 months. When the warranty is done, I don't want it to be a very shiny expensive paperweight...

    Well I don't think I'll be getting it back at all now! No idea how they're gonna resolve this shit but its totally fucked. Took too long for the parts to arrive and I decided to get a replacement altogether but that probably means I'll be stuck in beurocratic limbo for months and without any laptop.

    Not everyone experiences issues. But you also can't push the Blade to it's limits out of the box. You have to give time for the thermal adhesive on the chips to harden. If you don't, your chipset can break loose and cause all kinds of problems, and your laptop will be broken. It should be about 6 weeks of owning it before you want to push the Blade for any extended gaming sessions.
