  1. I know window says that it's compatible but with razerblade high 4k display and the fact that we are all gamers, I'm not sure if it's recommended until tested extensively. What are your thoughts?

    I know a lot of people have crashed on it. I wouldn't take the risk.

    I would say to wait on it, and you have a whole year to decide on it. Not everything would be compatible with Windows 10 so just wait until most things are.

    Again, I never owned a Razer Blade, so I wouldn't know.

    There might be a lot of bugs upon release so, I think you should wait while

    I know they here has been a lot of testing with it and they have tried to iron out the bugs before releasing it but I would still wait a couple of months before installing it on a blade. There is also the restore option and you could try and then restore to earlier version if you wanted to

    Isn't the Razer Blade a Microsoft Signature Product? I would assume that Razer/MSFT is at least prepping up the drivers for release. Windows 10 should go RTM this week if not the next. Nevertheless, I can't wait for windows 10, love it so far.
  7. The blade does not have a 4K display. The blade has a QHD+ 1800p display. I've installed Windows 10 technical preview on a 2015 Blade 14" - it installed without any issues and I'm sure it will work relatively well at launch. I didn't really do any gaming and quickly reverted back to windows 8.1, it was just a small proof of concept test.

  8. By "love it so far" you mean you've tested it out or do you love whatever they have been advertising? If you did test it (on a razer), can you elaborate on the details?

    Hey, thanks for the correction! Do update us here when you have done a full test after the launch!

    Although i do not own a Razer Blade but i am an Insider aka using the latest build for Windows 10. I can assure you that it is worth getting Windows 10. If you're thinking of gaming needs, Nvidia has already provided a driver for Windows 10 so you shouldn't need to worry. Let me know what other doubts you have and i'll try to help you out :)

    I agree with the posts above, I'll personally consider waiting a month or two before updating. ^.^
  11. Hey, thank you for replying! If you were to name 3 worthy changes in Windows 10, what will they be? Is the High resolution issue fixed in windows 10 (blurry text on old software and even steam and chrome desktop version)? I'm going to uni soon and I dont want the bugs in windows 10 to affect me; if I wait a few months after the release instead of reserving it, will I still get it for free?

    Thanks again SilentChaos!

    No prob! Here's the answer to your questions:

    1) The Start menu is BACK! and even more cooler as you can pin your softwares in the start menu which makes it very convenient. Don't worry, i think you can go back to the Windows 8 start menu if you're comfortable with it.

    2) CORTANA. Come on, what's there to say. (Haven't got to test it out though, not available in my country :slightly_sad: ) It's gonna take over your laptop someday xD

    3) Microsoft Edge aka Project Spartan. The New replacement for Internet Explorer. Very clean and neat. Right now, its still needs more improving but there is a lot of potential for it.

    4) STREAM XBOX ONE games on your Windows 10! (Read here)

    5) Improved apps such as Music, Videos and Mail.

    If there's one thing i still hate is that in my opinion, they're still struggling in finding the right blend/balance for their modern apps and traditional settings. Hopefully they'll start resolving this soon as time goes by. But it's definitely and improvement than Windows 8/8.1

    It used to be an issue in one of the previous build from my experience. But right now, i'm using the latest build which is 10162 which is stable so far as they are close to retail release. Yup, you'll have 1 year from July 29th to make the switch. Hope this info helps! :)

    You should reserve it, but I would not attempt to download it until Razer Systems has uploaded info on it. Or at least called them to see if they have an update guide. They had one for 8 to 8.1 and if you didn't follow it exactly it could cause issues.

    I'd create a partition and install Windows 10... and then maybe delete the partition if it's buggy and keep Windows 8.1 and Linux installed...

    Since the blade is not my primary device yet, I was quick in loading an insider preview version, and so far everything seems ok (I would hope so, considering it comes out in 2 weeks).

    one issue for gaming is that the updated version of the intel graphics drivers that allowed proper scaling does not work on windows 10 natively yet, and I had to mod some files to get it to install (playing with black borders isn't particularly enjoyable...

    if the blade is not your primary system, then go ahead, and try it out, but if it is, then wait a couple of weeks, and see if you feel that upgrading is worth it.

    for my use case, the new browser in windows 10 has made the upgrade justifiable as chrome wasent working well for me, and the cpu usage was very high for a browser.

    as other said, if you have the space to spare, then try to make a partition, so you can try it out without risking loosing any important data.
