    Back-lit function keys is awesome, really great update. Why was the individual key back lighting removed though? :slightly_sad:

    Pretty sure for thermal optimization on intensive usage like gaming, had a bit thicker mx150 ultrabook it was hot even with only white backlight keyboard.

    "All-new superior gaming performance" ? what ?

    Don't get me wrong, this new model looks incredible.

    But it's only a MX150 ... so basically a GT 1030, so it's not meant for gaming on its own. You'll still need a Razer Core.

    It’s better for gaming than an Uhd 620 on most ultrabook and even Iris plus on latest MacBook Pro 13, yeah for 1080p all max still not capable though, do you want putting 1060 on it:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye_:

    1600 dollars for a Full HD MX150. Ouch!

    Would have loved to see the $999 price point stick. Spec improvements for the base model arent worth the 400 dollar price hike. :slightly_sad:

    Nice to see this design coming to the blade stealth, and its also nice that it comes with a slight upgrade over the intel graphics now, bigger SSD's would be nice on the lower end model as a option though.

    I'd be interested to know what the brightness is on both FHD and 4K models along with what the thermal management looks like.

    I'm happy with Blade 14, in between 13 & 15, GTX1060 & individual key back lighting, just bigger bezel have to live with it.

    Those are some nice upgrades. I'm glad that Razer is putting an emphasis on speaker sound quality and affordability of Razer laptops now. Sound quality of speakers and affordability has always been the major weakness of Razer's laptops.

    I'm hoping we could see some of these improvements in the 2019 Razer Blade 15 with GeForce 20 graphics. Hopefully I can get a hold of a Gunmetal color option for that one, or at least a version with the sleek tone-on-tone logo.

    EDIT:
    Just found out that the screen has been nerfed down from an IPS panel to a TFT panel. I guess there's going to have to be a compromise if the price is to go down. On the bright side, the secondary keys now light up!

    NO NO AND NO!

    Stop cheating the shift key to make room for those arrow keys, I think having the up/down take up the space of a single key was just fine. I had to get an aero15x v8 at work because of this. It used to be just the pro, but now your entire lineup is ruined with this. Keyboard layouts matter. I can't own another razer laptop until you fix this.
