    Hi, I am looking to start saving up for the Razer Blade 14, first I was looking to get the refreshed blade 14 with the GTX 1060 and the kaby lake processor later this year around november. With the import fees of amazon, shipping it all comes together at $3500. I am hoping that the refresh comes with less bezels, slightly better performance and better fans but mostly, please fix the touchpad and make it like the macbook pro(doesn't need to be that big just force touch and no buttons!). Do you guys think that the next refresh will be late 2017 or early-mid 2018, also when Razer releases a new blade do amazon straight away start giving pre orders to international buyers, Im from New Zealand so I can't buy direct from Razers website.
    Thanks you!

    Also to add a few more important things to add,
    With the performance mean ~ GTX 1070, or GTX 1060 sli, and a upgraded processor but please let the ram be upgradable(These upgrades aren't really high priority as the current specs for performance are beast)
    Magnetic charging cable?
    The design is amazing anyway, just keep it the same
    The hinge could be alluminium to make things even more sleek but not reqiuired though
    But for highest priority, please Razer have control checks on your Blades. With the recent blade there were so many screen/fan issues, but believe me when Razer can get this right their laptop will top the market.

    Edit 1: Also razer choose a better wireless card!

    Lol, I thought that was a thing, sorry Im new to top of the range laptops, had a desktop but that died on me, let me change that to a GTX 1070

    Edit 1: There is such a thing, but its GTX 1060 Sli, sorry if I didnt know lol, let me change that again to GTX 1070 or a GTX 1060 Sli

    To your edit: No, 1060 Sli is non-existent either^^. Sli means that you have two graphics cards connected through a hardware bridge, but the GTX 1060 doesn't support this. But yeah, though 1070 Sli would theoretically be possible, it means that you would have two chips to cool. Have you ever seen something like an laptop with two GPUs? Yes? Can you imagine something this ugly from Razer? I guess nobody could and I personally don't want to. So I guess sticking with the GTX 1060 as a compromise between low power consumption and maximum 1080p performance is the best way to go for the Blade late 2017 unless Nvidia releases a GPU that runs even cooler with our sacrificing performance.
