    Hi, I have wanted to get the Razer Blade Stealth QHD 256Gb model for ages now, yet it is perpetually out of stock in Australia I have seen loads of positive reviews and I really want to get it. The customer support has been less than helpful and refused to disclose any knowledge on the stock whatsoever. Is there anywhere else where I could get it that has a waranty?

    well, I really can't comment on how they stock their stores and what their production runs are, and I am from North America so I know even less about how they operate within Australia and the Asia-Pacific region. However, I do know a few places you can sometimes find gear when they don't have it in the store.

    You mentioned warranty as well, I actually bought my Blade Stealth at my local Microsoft Store. Not sure if you have those in Australia, but all the Microsoft Store's in the States carry Razer Blade's. I got mine at the Microsoft Store because they let you return it during the first couple weeks if it does not fit your needs and they also offered a 2 year warranty on the Blade as well. Again, could be different for you since I am in North America, but those are the two reasons I bought mine at the Microsoft Store.

    Razer also has an official store on Amazon. When I first bought my Razer Edge I managed to find some accessories for it in their Amazon store that were sold out on the Razerstore itself.

    Places like Best Buy and Fry's electronics occasionally carry Razer gear as well, so perhaps there are a few Australian equivalents of brick and mortar electronics stores that could carry it?

    Hi @Trolleyfox so sorry but our team currently do not have a fixed date for the restock of our Blade Stealth 256GB QHD models yet. Alternatively, feel free to check them out at any of our official retailers near you. However do contact the retailers beforehand to check if they have the Razer Blade Stealth in their stores for you to purchase. Also do feel free to contact me directly if you require any further assistance. ;)

    That was quick! Thanks for the answers. There arent many australian equivelent of the ones mentioned above (those that exist dont stock it, sadly) but it might be possible to ship from the us razer store although i dont know about warranty + the 256gb model isnt in stock there either!

    Hi. Yes same issue here, but I'm in the UK and unable to place an order for the Razer Blade Stealth QHD 512GB. In fact all the QHD versions are out of stock, and I have been trying to order for almost 2 weeks! Why can't I place an order and then it gets shipped when it comes in stock? At this rate I need to keep refreshing the browser every few hours in case stock changes.
    I've emailed support on this but no reply yet, thought they may check the forums more often. Come on guys, I want to give you my money, it's up to you if you want to take it or not! ;)
    There are no official retailers near me so I can't even fall back on that solution.

    Thanks in advance

    So I am seeing on the Amazon Razer Store that they have the stealth in stock.... in every variety except the one you are trying to buy....... maybe check out the other configurations? https://www.amazon.com/Razer-Stealth-Ultrabook-Generation-Windows/dp/B01N2HO0VA/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1489519284&sr=1-1&keywords=razer+blade+stealth&th=1

    Trust me I understand the struggle, I was extremely lucky to have a physical retailer near me (and literally the only one in my state for that matter), and even then I had to wait a month for them to order one for me and get it in stock.

    I have waited for 4 months now for this to come in stock and i have emailed many times and I just want a straight answer when/are you going to restock the Razer Blade Stealth 256Gb? Even in America its out of stock!

    Hey thanks for your reply.
    I checked the link you attached, unfortunately this is the Amazon US store and I'm in the UK. The razer stealths on Amazon UK are not sold by Amazon and by a third party seller which have bad reviews, so I do not want to risk it.

    I've just noticed on the UK razer store they have removed the QHD options. You can now only buy the 4K model. What's going on with this??

    yeah I wouldn't trust it either if it is a third party that isn't on the Razer reseller list. That sucks :/ hopefully you find a way to get one soon.

    Why is it so hard to either just stock a stealth or tell us when they will?

    Hi! same problem here, I want to buy a RBS in Australia, but the only one I could find were the 4K ones.
    I also checked with the Microsoft store, and they also could not give me a date for the restock.

    Just as a quick feedback on the list of retailers in Australia.. It is now more than 6 months that all the Dick Smith stores are closed (http://www.smh.com.au/business/reta...-stores-3000-staff-to-go-20160225-gn3ios.html).
    In addition both JB HiFi, Scorpion Technology (Scorptec.com.au) and PC Market don't sell anymore Razer systems
    It may be worth to update that page.

    Do you know if there are any blade stealth equivelents

    I guess depends what you mean for equivalent, but a short list of laptops available in Australia that are in same way similar to the BDS would be:
    • Razer Blade 14 (of course!)
    • Dell XPS 13 (many configurations, but generally more expensive)
    • Asus UX330 (similar price and specs, but no thunderbolt 3)
    Then you could look into alternatives from HP, Acer, various Macbooks, even Xiaomi.

    In my personal case I feel like none of them is a perfect substitute, hence I am patiently (for now) waiting for restocking :)

    I've been looking at equivalents and it only the dell xps 13 that comes close but it's still more expensive.

    So now on the uk online store they have reduced the price of the 4K editions by £200 bringing them in line with what the QHD versions would have been if they were in stock. Something fishy is going on here. Would this suggest they are due for a product refresh? (I.e. Not restocking the QHD and reducing the price on all available 4K versions)....

    It seems like the stocks are low worldwide and only with few options available. Razerzone US store is having a sale on the stealth as well. Could this be preperations for a 2017 Razer Blade Stealth? :eek_:

    Does anybody know the date the first version and second version of the stealth was released? Was there a whole year between them? I seem to remember this latest version was released in October 2016, and we are already March, bringing it to 6 months.

    The original razer blade stealth first appeared about a year ago, according to the trailer on Youtube. The new razer blade stealth got released about 6 months ago. If the pattern continues, we might see the 2017 soon!

    Had the QHD/16GB/512GB version in my Amazon cart and was about to buy but they're out of stock. Almost bought the 4K but after reading this thread maybe I'm going to hold off for a while. Not like there's stock anyway....
     
  20. Need this in Malaysia!
