  1. There are no drive bays in the core. However, there are USB ports to set up external drives.

    It doesn't have any HDD bays.

    You got the best specced Blade Stealth anyway, buy a 512 drive and stick it in and you'll be way ahead.

    Thanks, guys. I really misunderstood the core, I thought it had some drive bays in it for sure. Though, one wonders how much of the Thunderbolt 3's bandwidth the GPU is going to need, so it was probably a silly thought of mine.

    Swapping the 128GB for a 512GB drive is probably the very best idea, regardless. Thanks again.

    It's said 5/23 for over a month now (if you were actually able to order a Core)

    I feel like if they went through the trouble of changing the date, and only did it by one day, it might actually be true otherwise why bother changing it again on Tuesday? But we will see.

    This video was interesting. It was mentioning that the core might find it difficult when we have many devices connected to the core. Is that true?

    If I wanted to pick up the Razer Core at the Razer store in SF could I bring in the code from the promotion and get it for the discounted price still?

    They don't have any in stock; they'll just redirect you to the online store.

    And I hear the cores are working well with the stealth/blade and if any one has some first impressions feel free to post.

    I meant when do they have it in stock. Like it's more of them being able to give the discounted price rather than actually having it if you were to go to the store with a proof of purchase.

    I think the discount code will only be applicable online, and from what I read here, the Razer store SF will mostly only pack mice and pads.

    Thanks for the link. Referencing what the article said I would definitely agree that they don't really have a lot of room for stock. I will definitely check them out to make sure later since they said they weren't planning on selling anything till Monday, and that they have all their stock on an offsite that is ready to be transferred over on so that they are ready for the day they start selling products.

    The store is more like a showcase - they don't actually sell any serious products there (laptops/core/etc)

    I'm referring to what the store manager told me. Which is the reason why I say I will wait till Monday. However yes, the store is very much a showcase store. I wouldn't imagine that they would just sell exclusively the smaller products and absolutely no systems whatsoever. Again I don't know what they will or will not sell, but from what the store manager told me when I went the other day I believe they will be selling products. They just might sell a very limited amount of products at a time since the store layout is meant to be mostly a showcase.
