    Hello Mr. Min-Liang Tan,

    since the Razer is on such a nice roll, a cherry on the top would be a new version of Razer Blade.

    It comes definitely Razer Blade 2018, but in winter I doubt it, maybe announcement and Herbst release. Because there’s still no equivalent hardware for it, 8700k Laptop is already available but HQ which is mostly being used for most high end laptops doesn’t appear yet, and from GPU max q is already out of date imo, here I can buy Zephyrus for €400 less, I think Nvidia is preparing already Volta, and max q was only their marketing to get some money before volta appear. Regardless, Razer is always make surprises, so if you really need machine get Blade with some discount, or get max q laptops but don’t regret if volta Laptop comes in early 2018. Technology is going fast, I wouldn’t buy stealth dual core 2 months before if i know they will release quad core so early, well this is the fact;)

    If they even take the current razer blade, then
    -make screen a tad bigger by making the bezel slimmer
    -remove left/right buttons on the trackpad (seriously, anybody use those flimsy buttons?)
    -implement better thermal solution

    that would make this laptop pretty much perfect.

    Those are all great suggestions. And Insiders is the best place to post it. Because this is the place that Razer likes to hang out with its community.

    I think they are working on it, since it’s the most expected points for next Blade, and they did it to Blade Stealth line. I think they kept the trackpad button because they were thinking that users would gaming with trackpad like all big Blade model (Pro 2015 also), honestly I prefer trackpad with button if I game using it, but I think a lot of poeple nowadays prefer mouse for it, and we see it on Blade Pro late 2016, buttonless trackpad.

    +1 Pretty sure they are working on smaller bezels and maybe already working with nvidia to fit a Volta (or Ampere?) GPU inside. I don't want them to release another Blade with a Pascal GPU, its better to just wait until March to get the real deal that will do 4K gaming in a laptop at last.

    I'm in that same boat. I think the track pad hinders me when I'm typing. That's why I disable it.
    I thought the current Razer Blade versions already has an option for 4k? I saw it as an option on their spec pages. Unless I'm missing something?

    Yes you are right. My point is that the GTX 1060 cannot do 4k gaming unless you choose low graphics settings. We are still not at 4K 60fps in a 14'' laptop. Next GPU generation might take us there, as these last years GPU power is growing much faster than videogame graphics requirements.

    Yes there’s 4K Blade 14, but it could only run light games for example the popular one that you can play with over 60FPS high are FIFA 18, Overwatch (above 50fps), CS Go, Rocket League, . Most AAA titles are running around 30 (like gaming on switch, it’s not for PC gaming experience), and the intensive open world like Witcher 3 are for me unplayable on 4K (20fps). Don’t know about SF2, I think it could;) You will want power from high end GPU from the core which was my dream setting to run latest title on native resolution, but 4K one came very late that I couldn’t wait any longer at that time and bought FHD.

    Ampere just got announced on their roadmap, there is no way it's gonna be Ampere. I would be willing to bet my paycheque there isn't even a working prototype of Ampere yet

    Well exactly it would be very interesting to see or get some rumors how and where can we except the new blade. I am a gamer and software dev so I need a beast to game on and it also needs to be portable. For AAA on 4k and 60fps, to be honest I Would fit the Razer core v2 for it, otherwise Ideal would be (still powerful GPU) but long battery life, smaller bezels, quiet(!!!), good sRGB profile, and a decent CPU/RAM with enough HDD space
    Sounds ideal right? but this machine is very very close to ideal.

    I hope Mr. Min-Liang Tan will be generous after such a nice razer phone launch and give us an early opportunity to buy ourselves a Christmas present

    I don't understand the bezel hate. I would much rather see the bezels remain while increasing the system's form factor to 15.6".

    At any rate, having just purchased the Kaby Blade, I'm not buying again until 2019. I'm hoping that the Razer Blade 15 with Volta will be available at that time.
