    If only that happens. I've read somewhere that benchmarks of the new flagship mobile pascals have about the same performance of a desktop 980. If razer put that in it'd be really cool. But if not, I will be waiting for some other laptop with 1080m for sure.

    I wouldn't even cross my fingers, if they were adding anything new they probably would have made an official announcement by now, especially with all the hate they are getting for these delays. Also support just says its a shipping problem so why would they lie.

    Do you remember where you read that?

    I tried explaining that logic a while ago in another thread. These people don't want you to point out the flawed logic in their complaints, they just want everyone to agree that everything is Razer's fault, even though most of these complaints blatantly show the consumer's ignorance. Your logic, is absolutely correct (and to me is just common sense), but I am here to tell you that it falls on deaf ears in this forum.

    Well said, I've tried to convey these same points, countless times. You did a very nice job of composing these points in one post. However, don't be surprised if multiple numbskulls still don't understand, they will still think that Razer owes them explanations, and they seem like they won't be satisfied until they have a head on a stick.

    I can pretty much guarantee that's not happening; if they had any intention of doing that you can bet they would have announced it instead of delaying it 4+ times and pushing so many people into canceling their pre-orders.

    For what it's worth, I pre-ordered March 31st within an hour or so of the store page going live. My ordered got delayed just like the rest; once I got the May 18th delay notice last week I canceled my order.

    Looks like at this point they're delaying it to launch with the Core but they probably had other reasons to begin with. My guess is some kind of manufacturing issue or they realized some kind of fault in the system and are attempting to correct it but now it's so close to the speculated Core date that they might as well push it up a week and launch them together.

    Here's some speculation..... Razer really had a 1080/1070 in the blade the whole time except they really just have a NDA with Nvidia to not tell you till a certain date. Nvidia is the real culprit pushing it back

    So we're all getting 1070's!

    ................. I can wish right?
     
  10. Don't worry. I'm not biting this time.

    I noticed for some reason it has to have the same date as the core as well. Not sure why. I mean the only changes from the 2015 model is updated parts and a colored keyboard which they have gotten down on the stealth. My theory is they have too many 2015 models in stock and are trying to clean out inventory before releasing. They can claim its an intel thing all they want, but the stealth was released with tb3, the xps models have it and are working fine..so, it's something else and it's starting to smell shady.

    I highly doubt they would delay the new model only to clear out the old one. That wouldn't be a wise business decision. By then people would start buying models from the competition.

    Looks like some good news - the date is still a bit squishy, but progress is progress.

  16. Whaaaaaaaaaaat? I didn't get this. I hope The Division codes do not need to be redeemed by April 30th or many people will be screwed.
     
  17. I got the same email! Finally
     
  18. Sweet. When did you order yours?

    Anyone had the Core on the same order? Will it ship at the same time?

    I just got the same email, so woo hoo. For what it's worth, I ordered mine back on March 16th. (a 512 gig).
