    Well the switchblade was pretty much worthless... So anything else would be an improvement.

    It was a good idea, but it was hindered by the low res of the screen, the low fps, and I believe it was faily unsensitive.

    Also, why was it off on the side?

    In my line of work(engineering) I'd actually use something like that. But to be brutally honest, I think they should abandon the gimmicks. All they do is add cost and shrink your customer base. And shrinking the customer base just adds even more cost. I really want a thin 17" laptop but I have never even considered the Pro because it's always been so overpriced. And given the average hardware specs of the previous versions, the only reason I can even conceive for the cost being so high(besides greed) is the switchblade.

    Give me a IPS screen with a normal keyboard with number pad and a 970m and I'll pay your $2500.

    Well since the 1080 has been announced, might as well a few more months to get the 1080m in the "Pro".

    How do you know that? Any sales figures to back up your opinion?

    Based on store inventory and pre-order delivery dates, ever Blade has been heavily in demand and sold quite well...

    Well... I agree that 32GB is probably the sweetspot for most prosumers.
    I'd still want to put down more money for 64GB, if that were an option..

    Right. Apparently, the trend is to announce the mobile version about a month after
    the desktop cards' debut. So, new laptops with 10x0m could be showing up by summer;
    and, definitely before 'back-to-school' season... I hope the Pro will lead the way. (-;

    Don't you think a 16" is a possibility?
    I mean, they are going 12" and 14" instead of the usual 13" and 15", so maybe the drop an inch so it won't be THAT big.
    Of course this is 100% speculation.

    The Skylake 6970HQ paired with 32GB RAM, GTX 1070M and a 4k display would be really, really impressive!

    I also don't think it would be as expensive as some of you are suggesting. There are some competitors out there which basically offer the wishlist you are citing and charge about 2.5k.

    Just my thoughts tho.

    I am holding off on getting the new blade because In case the new blade pro comes out directly after but its a pain not having any date of reference for release estimations.

    Throw in a 1080m and it's a deal!

    And keep it 17" :)

    That's the dream, right? Hahha
    If it is possible and viable, damn, it would be really awesome!

    I personally have no preference, both would be really good.
    I'm currently using a 15" MacBook Pro with retina display, and I could never go to something smaller. Literally every day I wish I could have a bigger screen real estate...

    Pretty much the same, have a 15" MBP and a Aorus X5 and I would not be able to use a 13 or 14, especially given that my iPad is 13" and it feels small. Either 16 or 17 would be fine, although 18 I feel would sacrifice portability a bit too much.

    I know English isn't your first language, so no worries!

    This product doesn't exist yet, all of this thread is pure speculation (or guessing). No one knows if Razer will release a new Pro Blade.

    Still no Stealth in the UK so would probably be a while if a new Pro Blade is released.

    Wow, do you have the Aorus X5?
    Isn't it the GTX 980M, up to 64GB RAM, quad-storage, 4K monster?
    How has been your experience with it?
