    $2.5k? The thing starts at $1k.
     
  2. The top tier ends at around $1,600.00 which is still reasonably priced for this segment of the market. The specs may not seem good for a regular gaming laptop, but I assure you that the ultrabook market is very different. This thing is slim and incredibly light. While I agree that It should have more in terms of memory (for artists and whatnot to utilize the beautiful screen), what we have been given is not out of the question. Most stuff at this price point (the mid-tier) has either a core m or an i5.

    Edit: I just realized that you may have been talking about the 1080p version of the 2015 Razer blade. If that is the case, you are correct- the cost to product ratio is way off. However, I wouldn't expect more than 16GB of RAM on a machine like this tbh. The Razer Blade 14 is first and foremost a gaming machine. It is not really for professional editing and engineering work. Obviously, it would be nice if they gave us the option of upgrading the system for ourselves (isn't that a huge part of our gamer culture?), but realistically... they are providing a product that is fully capable of doing what they made it to do.

    I would honestly better screen brightness control. I'm kind of a night owl so working with a super bright screen was kind of hard on the eyes @_@. Other than that, I would say the basic hardware upgrade with a Thunderbolt port, that'd be sick. My biggest pet peeve though would be an option of keeping the 16gb RAM without having to splurge for a UHD screen.

    16 actually.

    While it would be size if would be upgradeable to 32 you have to remember you are sacrificing a certain amount of power for size.

    This would be my wishlist:
    • 1080p/1440p screen
    • 16GB of RAM
    • 128 or 256 GB SSD + 500 or 1 TB HDD
    • At least a gtx980m
    • Chroma keyboard like in the Stealth
    • At least 5 hours battery life
    • Less than 2,5 kg
    • USB-C + at least 2 usb 3.0 ports
    • HDMI/Displayport or mini display port
    Form factor doesn't necessarily have to be as thin as it is now if that helps with cooling and keeping the price down a bit.

    I really wanna see 16GB of ram...
    With just 8GB, I can't make up my mind to purchase :eek_:

    there is already 16G on the 2015 one.
    I would be surprise if they put less on the 2016 version...

    2015 version +
    Chroma
    usb-c
    compatibility with the core
    blade stealth touchpad
    updated cpu mgpu.

    that what I am expecting.

    Oled
    GSync

    that what I am wishing for, on top.

    almost no consumer needs 32 gigs of ram, 64 is overkill unless ur mapping dna then you need a server...

    I wonder if we got a Blade with 4 usbc/tb3 ports, all with dedicated lanes, and we got a graphics amp with 4 imputs; could we have a full 16x pcie lane?
    Of course this wouldn't work with the Core, unless we could have 4 with pcie x4 risers that go into a x16 port.
    I just wonder if we could have a full single desktop gpu with no limitations.

    Updated Blade 14 with:
    - CPU: 6700HQ or 6700K (yes I know unlikely on the K)
    - GPU: 980M or better (pascal)
    - RAM: 16-32GB DDR4 3000 or better (will more than likely be 2133)
    - SSD: M.2 NVMe 256GB minimum & the option to put a Samsung 950 M.2 V-NAND NVMe 512GB if I wanted.
    - Full RGB
    - Display: 4k. Doesn't need to be touchscreen
    - USB 3.1
    - Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C)
    - HDMI 2.0
    - And of course, CORE COMPATIBILITY

    no need for such high end cpu, if you need to game 960 is enough for ability to game, with super long battery, I prefer that to a super short battery with 1000 series, once I get back simply plug into the core.

    Hi Team Razer!

    I really like your Razer Blades, espacially the Blade 14. But I must admit that some features are missing (for me). But first of all I want to say thank you! Thank you for offering your Blades in Europe!
    Next thing is I hope you will update your New Razer Blade 14 (2015). I know not all of our wishes are feasible but for this price category it should be a bit more.

    Here are my thoughts/wishes for the Blade 14 (2016) :

    Skylake CPU (or even better Kaby Lake)
    16GB DDR4 RAM (WQHD / QHD+ & Full HD)
    GTX 980M (or Pascal)
    2nd M.2 Slot
    1x Thunderbolt 3 with USB Type C
    3x USB 3.1
    HDMI 2.0 or (mini) Display Port
    Core compatibility
    better heatmanagement
    less fan noise
    better battery life

    Nice to have but not must have :

    G-Sync
    SD Card Slot

    Must haves (or I won't upgrade):
    OLED display option (keep in mind Alienware 13 offers OLED now - so keep up with the Joneses),
    USB Type C (Thunderbolt 3+) : you know the one that lets you use any external graphics box.
    like to have:
    Improvement in thermals (bottom and top) would always be appreciated.
    I'd like to be able to take the memory all the way to 32GB.
    I'd like G-Synch but I'm not sure if that is compatible with OLED (and I would take OLED over G-Sync.)
    love to have:
    more branded/themed options for razerblades:
    like World of Tanks, Fallout 4, etc.

    Razer, I know you'll get things right about the usual upgrades (battery, heat, gpu, cpu, etc...).
    So just 2 things pls:
    OLED and G-Sync !!!

    And if both are not possible, then : OLED

    I hope to see below features in this year blade...
    1) skylake HK processor in blade pro
    2) USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 in every blade
    3) MUX circuit to select optimus/non-optimus mode
    4) Chroma backlit keyboard
    5) Better touchscreen & performance for blade pro's switchblade ui
    6) 970mx for every blade(pro)

    Just forgot to add one important suggestion: please wait for nvidia to launch Pascal mobile GPUs. We can wait for the new Blade. No need to rush a product without the necessary upgrades. Besides, you expanded the blade line with the stealth. I hope that means you'll take some time to work on the Blade and wait for gtx1070m. We can wait until November if necessary.

    But if you launch it next week that'd be cool too.

    ... My blade died last week.

    I'm a student heading off to college this fall, so here's what I'm hoping for:

    1: AT LEAST 8 hours battery life - As a student, battery life is Priority Number One. If it won't last me a whole school day on battery power, I won't consider it.
    2: 2 kg or less - Since I'll be carrying this around all day, weight is Priority Number Two.
    3: i7-6700HQ - No more, no less. This will certainly help with CAD work and won't be a bottleneck.
    4: 14" 1080p non-touchcreen OR 4K touchscreen - Because options are good.
    5: 16GB RAM - The new standard.
    6: GTX 960M/970M (or Pascal equivalent) - Not everyone needs the GTX 970M. Plus a GTX 960M will be good enough for rendering some models and playing Star Wars Battlefront while also using less energy and producing less heat.
    7: Chroma-enabled keyboard and Razer logo - When you can have it, personalization is always nice.
    8: Thunderbolt 3 charging port with Razer Core compatability - Without any form of bottlenecking with the i7-6700HQ and 16GB RAM, the Razer Core would allow the Blade to be a TRUE laptop/desktop hybrid experience.
    9: Linux support - I myself am a Windows user, but having Linux support would please the many people who use it as their main OS.
    10: Manual fan control - Why not?
    11: Student-discounted bundle with the Razer Core and a mouse - We've all heard of the poor college student stereotype. No further explanation needed.
    12: Release date before Q3 - So we have to time to make a purchase decision before school starts.

    And here's some ideas I've toyed with:
    1: An external Thunderbolt 3 battery pack - For when you need the extra juice, if at least 8 hours of battery life cannot be achieved.
    2: An iGPU option - Hear me out, guys. Skipping out on a dedicated GPU would free up internal space, which could be replaced with more battery. Similar to the Stealth, the iGPU would be good enough for basic tasks such as note-taking and research, but the Core would be what handles the hardcore homework. Plus, it would make the notebook itself cost less.
    3: Chroma lighting around the mousepad - Think Razer Firefly. Just a little more personalization.

    Some of my wish specs would mean that people will probably have to wait till the end of Q3, but I believe it will be worth the wait.

    My wishlist:
    • !!! More affordable prices in Europe !!!
    • G-Sync! NEED! GIEF!!!1elf
    • Kaby Lake CPU
    • Pascal GPU
    • 16GB DDR4 RAM
    • 256GB / 512GB NVMe / 2x 512GB NVMe Raid 0 - (Samsung 950 Pro)
    • Chroma Razer Logo
    • Mini Displayport
    What I can assure that we will defintely get:
    • at least a 4K Display as option
    • USB-C/Thunderbolt 3/Core compatibility
    • Chroma Keyboard & and new font
    What should be removed
    • Remove Nvidia Optimus for G-Sync Compatibility!
    • No one needs a touchscreen on a notebook...
    • Physical buttons on the mousepad
    PS: Dear Mr. Tan, I dare you to put a GTX 970MX/980MX inside this machine!
