    I placed my order on 3/15/16. I received this same exact email on 4/1/16. I am assuming that Razer has restarted the processing of these orders all over again, and that is why we are receiving this likely automated email.

    Now that you mention it, I did get this one in 4/1 as well. Good catch

    My order was 3/16 and yes, I also have the exact same one on 4/1. (Which is why I was so confused this morning...)

    Mine was April 14th i think, still have no received an e-mail.
  14. Simmer down. You probably don't know either.

    The fact is people are unhappy with what happened and razer has done and did nothing to really calm the situation. That's not the customer's fault really although some did go a little far.

    That response works for me! Thanks Min

    Regardless, were only two days away from May 3rd and I really hope that the first of the first ship that day!

    Just got the backorder email for 3/31 as well...
    Ordered 3/15
    Had the other delay emails out to 5/18 so this is weird.

    Hopefully they've resolved whatever issues they have...

    Edit: just saw the fb post. Here's hoping shipments start soon

    huge step up in that yes u can play games at 1080p better while 960 gets the same performance just at 720p. Both outdated by end up june though. I think the new blade will be nice, but let's be honest its a 2015 blade with a slightly more efficient cpu, colored keys and a tb3 port which is not exactly new these days for laptops. 2017 blade will be a far bigger increase in performance and likely be out by CES 2017.

    Of course the Next Blade will be way better, and will be a much more significant upgrade, but that isn't the point. And while other eGPU's are going to be released, the Core can be used with other laptops like the XPS 15, however, it probably won't work nearly as seamless as with the Blade. With the Blade, we are supposed to get true plug and play with the Core, with other systems, you will likely have to restart ur machine after plugging in the TB3 port to get the process to go smoothly. While the XPS 15 is probably a really nice laptop and probably works great, the few advantages the Razer Blade hopes to offer will be rather significant, especially if Dell cannot get TB3 to work seamlessly (I think this is the reason the Delays have gone with little explanation. While TB3 isn't brand new technology, getting it to work perfectly seamless in a plug and play scenario is very tedious and difficult. I think they found a small bug with the process, and said it is unacceptable because they are advertising it to be a perfect experience, so they had to delay. However, with technical problems such as this, there is nothing they can tell us about it since it is far too technical to give a proper explanation and they probably don't want to publicize this as it would start an unnecessary dialog about an issue that may no longer exist when it gets to the consumer).

    I am far from ripping on your choice to abandon the Blade for the XPS since I completely understand your decision, as that may have been the best decision for you, however, don't act like the Blade isn't a better laptop for those who primarily care about gaming. If you primarily care about gaming, the XPS isn't really for you, however, if you want a great mobile workstation first, the XPS may be better for you. The quality of the screens mean nothing to me as a difference since at those screen sizes, the pixel density is going to be crazy good, regardless. I do love the screen size to laptop size ratio and XPS kills the Blade and every other laptop in that category, which is why it would be better for business professionals who don't care about heavy gaming on the go. It is a matter of to each their own.

    Having said all this, I suppose we won't know which is actually better for a couple more weeks but I like the chances the Blade has of being great.
