    I really love the pro but the high prices for both versions are too high, so for the 2018 version can Razer still created a power laptop great specs but not in the near 5k?

    The problem with the pro is that you are forced to buy a 1080 8gb with 32Gb of RAM Gddr5x, an 4k touch display...

    But a 1080 8gb with 16 gb of RAM gddr5 with an 4k Matt display...

    3500 dollars is the price of this i think!
    5000 -> 3500

    And the price of the 1080 is probably cheaper yet.

    If you mean FHD Pro is too high for you you can look at other cheaper brand or if you still want Blade the only option is by looking for second one on eBay, or refurbished on Amazon.
    Don’t forget Razer Tax;) They usually won’t release lower specs in an update on same specs model and GPU price is still expensive anyway atm especially high end one. I think they will wait till end of year on put newest 1185/2080 GPU or whatever its name will be and other new features that make poeple want to grade it even on high price tag.

    Why from Amazon.com, you can get from amazon.de/uk with free delivery I heard, you can call and confirm it to amazon cs, on amazon.de you can talk with your german (but maybe better not to use too much dialect;))
    I upgraded laptop a gen from 970m to 1060 and I felt it was already huge, around 1080p medium to ultra. With the core and 1080ti I get 4K high, with new gpu I believe 4K Ultra (for me 60fps is okay, not fps player).

    Amazon.com because on Amazon.de it's more expensive because it's in euro, oh u have the core v2? It's very noisy no?:wink_:

    Amazon.com you get only a year warranty and eu you get two, so for me it's okay. Yes it's loud if you play without sound (mute;)), I think blower fan is louder like fa one because the fan on core detecting that GPU always working that keep it working, maybe, with GPU that stop on idle I feel it isn't so loud, and it's way quiter than blade fans on max power. I'm hoping also some day they release fan control on synapse to turn it off on idle, because I just found how to make it not in full blast by disabling the chroma with a tweak only on blade 14, by going to sleep modus and wake it up while plugged on the core, weird tweak that work only to my blade 2017;)

    Ok, but i saw that it's hard to change or repair a Blade, i don't know if the Amazon 4 year warrantly is good for that... it's not expensive for me, because the life in Switzerland is expensive.

    You have a very good desktop euh laptop! Haha
    Enjoy!;)

    I have seen that a comparable alienware is almost $2000 less. I don't care about the touch screen. I have the 2016 RBP and I have used the touch screen once just to convince myself it wasn't a waste. It was.

    The G-Sync display is fantastic, but Alienware offers 4k gsync. I'd rather have a faster processor, and less ram. Hell, stop soldering in the ram! Let us upgrade our own. It's sad to think that the alienware is a bargain these days
