    lol, I'm right there with you. I went with...

    4k 512 stealth
    RBS stand
    RBS sleeve
    Naga Chroma (for desktop)
    Naga Epic Chroma (didn't realize you had to tether the cradle by USB)
    Orochi (since Epic Chroma wasn't bluetooth)
    17" messenger
    Mercenary
    Headphone stand
    Kraken Mobile (from code) and android cords
    Ripsaw (which I actually haven't used yet because work's been too busy for me to go back to fighting games and make new combo videos)

    Waiting to get:
    Core
    Orbweaver chroma
    Blackwidow chroma or X chroma
    Mamba wireless chroma
    Man O'War

    ... also waiting on the stargazer.
    And a 1080 for the core.


    I think I'm gonna go broke soon. =[

    I don't spend a lot of money on stuff normally--just food, bills, and student loans mainly. This has really been my main think to splurge and spend some money on in the past couple of years. My rationale (in an attempt to justify it... or the RBS at least) is that I went for over a year with no laptop after my old Lenovo Thinkpad died, but I am trying to publish a lot more this year. I was relegated to writing at home, where I have far too many distractions, so I needed something light, fast, and with a good battery that I could easily take to the library or a cafe to work more effectively. It's been helpful so far, and I've been using it to edit for a journal and work on my own publications. I figure that makes it worth the investment down the line.

    ... all the other stuff though? uhh.... because it's pretty and I like my mouse collection?
    ... okay, yea... I think I have a problem. =/
     
  4. My F5 key had now bonded with the plastic around because I've hit the key so many times...

    What if the Core is jut like the toaster and doesn't exist, and anyone who posts pictures and benchmarks are secretly Razer employees messing with us.

    Any updates on how your core is working!?

    +2, any sort of information you can give us? I'm sure your customer service lines are being blown up and there isn't really anything you can do short of saying wait for more information, but it would definitely be helpful to all of us waiting if we at least knew some information so we don't have to keep refreshing the store.

    So we're only taking a jump of 6 fps here with a core and 980.....(assuming 30 fps) man I don't think I'm going to sell my 2015 Blade then. Might just build a dreaded desktop.

    I am losing hope. Maybe I should get a cheaper laptop and a desktop with GTX 1080.

    So I just did a quick search on YouTube and this guy has the core running with a skull canyon get max 1440 with a 980 and is getting 60fps. This is so annoying some people say 15-20% gains other report massive gains. I just want concrete evidence so I know what to do!

    Well i think more people have to be able to get their hands on the Core to find an average.

    Yeah. The reason why I chose the Blade+Core combo is that I watched some videos saying that it reaches full desktop performance. But the 15-20% conclusion really scares me, plus the anxiety of not being able to buy the core. I am really re-considering what should I go with.

    I have the Blade 15 and after watching Ty Mcleans YouTube video with the stealth and core I think I'm going to take a leap of faith and sell my Blade and buy the new 2016 Blade. I just can't accept the duo core and 8gb ram. Plus I want to be able to game on the go to so the 970m has me. Even if the core sucks I'll be able to sell it maybe or return it. I mean I'll still need the graphics card for a desktop if it doesn't work ya know.

    Yea the 15-20% loss is not encouraging but for me any new card will be better than my current desktop. Sporting a 550ti

    If the Core sucks, I'll probably do the same thing. Sigh, two days ago I cancelled my preorder for EVGA GTX 1080 FTW, because it's too large for the Core. Now I have to wait for other 1080.

    Ohhhh yeah that does suck. I just had my 2015 blade sell on eBay.....but it was a scam -_-
