    So here I am and recently bought the 14" Razer Blade. I am happy and satisfied so far. Though of course, nothing in this world is perfect.
    If there would be a new Blade coming, I do hope that some of the features and specs that I would wish for will come true.

    Longer battery life
    Though the Razer Blade is compact and powerful enough for most of the games today, I really can't call it "mobile" as I always need a plug beside me. Once the GTX 870M starts kicking in, it's just an hour or two left before the red LED tells you to plug it in.

    A better world with QHD+

    Though it's not under Razer's control, the 3200x1800 is a nightmare for some software and games. It's like every time I install something new, I have to get the right "blend" before I can enjoy it.

    Remove touch screen = less cost (I guess?)
    I tried to get used to the fact that my laptop has touch screen feature but I guess it will never sync in to me. I guess removing it also will lessen the manufacturing cost and hopefully reduces the market price of Razer Blade.

    More space, More games.
    A gaming laptop is good if it has enough game collection to store. Even the 512GB SSD won't be enough. If Apple did it with a 1TB Flash, you can also do it Razer! Some people might say that I won't be playing all the games in my library anyway. But sometimes it's irritating that you have to uninstall some games that might be good for casual playing. Now I am stuck with my hardcore selection of games. And who wouldn't want more space?

    Cooling

    As most of Razer Blade owners know, the laptop gets hot! And sometimes it causes the laptop to shut down to prevent further damage. I hope Razer finds a way to address this.

    Power button & Track Pad Edges LED

    I know it's just cosmetics, but wouldn't it be cool if that power button glows too?!

    One more USB slot

    If possible, please add one! An external HDD, Kraken 7.1, & a cooling pad already filled the slots. Thank goodness I'm using an Orochi, but what if I opt for a wired one, right?

    And of course, updated specs
    Well, 2015 and 2016 should have new stuff to offer, so I hope Razer toss it in their next Blade so it may support future graphic intense games. As I am assuming a Blade's lifespan is from 2-5 years.

    That's all for now. There should be a little more to add, but I can't think of it now. And some issues are very minor like thumb marks lover & scratches. I guess those things can be handled carefully by the user.

    And a note to people who still complain about the price. The Razer Blade is unique due to it's design. No gaming laptop is as sleek and light like the Blade. Some companies like MSI are already selling out theirs - feel free to grab other laptops if you feel the price tag of Blades hurt your pocket. I guess Apple is the one doing the overpricing.
    The Razer Blade is like a piece of artwork, they've put enough effort design such products (and take note that most of the parts were exclusively customed made for Razer Blade).

    An external dock would be cool to fix "not enough ports" issue (add Thunderbolt 2 ports). Totally agree with everything @Onji said I just wouldn't mind the touch screen staying. EU shipping!

  3. I would love to see a simpler version of the Razer Blade, not lesser quality but perhaps less features so it's still a very impressive and versatile computer but with a lower cost for those who don't use the computer function for something as advanced. Like take away the touch screen as mentioned above or maybe lower specs. I'm not sure, but I would love to buy more Razer products as long as they were a bit cheaper. Lover Razer 100%, but am just looking for more things to buy that are within my price range.

    I'd love 1080p 14 inch IPS screen on the next version.

    I agree with some of the above. I've been eyeing the Blade for quite some time now. If Razer adds some more storage to the laptop, cools it down, and provides a higher resolution screen, I'd love to get one.

    But I guess Razer won't lower it down anymore. And there's nothing really so bad with a high DPI screen

    The high resolution is present now with the latest Blade. :)
