    Forget Tegra, put a 960 in the next Edge :)

    I bought the blade pro just before the edge came out - I travel a lot and was looking for a solid portable rig to fit in with my lifestyle. Had I waited 2 months I would have got the edge instead - pulling out my blade on a plane can be a hassle. The edge just seems super portable and relatively powerful; I like that there were accessory options too, something to fit everyone's needs, though I wouldn't have got them all (probably just keyboard and dock).

    In short if they revamped the edge and I needed to replace my laptop, I would be very tempted to give the edge a go.

    If they do bring it back they need to make a new keyboard dock that isn't awful to type on.

    This was the main thing that killed the Edge - Razer needs to realize a quality keyboard dock is the #1 driver of sales, and if can combine the dock/tablet combination to mimic a mini-laptop (such as the Macbook Air 11, but thicker) they have a complete winner on their hands.

    If love a refresh with new Intel architecture. This Fall when Windows goes full on future with W10, maybe the walls between desktop and portable will further be torn down.

    With the Forge TV thingy I don't think they will continue the Edge any soon.

    Completely different products. The Edge is for gaming on the go, outside the house.

    Yes I know. I said this because I think razer decided to focus more on home products then on-the-go products after the Edge didn't sell that well

    With W10 in full swing and add in the user of that with the xbox app for streaming games from your xbox one to your compute. Add in compatibility for the controller to act as a xbox one controller and boom, instant mobile xbox one (though it is limited to the local network).

    IF Razer does by a miracle decide to reboot the Edge I can rest assured they will use top of the line materials to ensure the product is of solid build quality and worth the investment.

    I have a 2015 blade pro and i absolutely love it, but i would like an edge so that i could carry something powerful and small around for times when i cant have a 14 or 17 inch laptop (as awesome as both of them are) so i would really like it if razer could bring th edge back and i know of a lot of my friends who would really like it too>

    If anyone is looking, I placed my edge with all accessories (gamepad, keyboard dock, two extra batteries) on ebay. It even has an upgraded WiFi chip in it. It even still has 3 months of warranty. Asking $1500 for the bundle.

    When things are revived, they are usually more successful then their first release. I think this is a pretty good idea

    I think the issue with the edge is that it doesn't really fit into their design aesthetic very well. Sure they fit an impressive amount of hardware into it, but it was still bulky and HEAVY. I own one, use it every day, I like it it, but I basically bought it because it was cheaper than the blade, not because it really offers an advantage as a tablet, seeing as the touch screen isn't sensitive enough for the use of a stylus and it is so heavy. The blade is all about power combined with portability, it is one of the most powerful laptops out there as well as almost the smallest and lightest, the edge doesn't really fit in with any of that and the exorbitant price of the accessories probably hampered sales even further. That being said, I still love mine, use it every day, but I can understand why it hasn't really been revived.
