1600 bucks for mx150, the screen is good but with those specs you wont be running 4 k anyways
I'd buy one if I had money
Great quality, and now with dedicated graphic card, cool.
I wish I had that kind of money..
Hfffff I need it so badly !
Oooo I want it!
I wish I could afford it
That's why I said is was still a great unit it just doesn't cut it for my needs
I'm still running the 2017 14" Blade with the 1060/7700HQ. At this point I'm waiting for the R/GTX 2060 model to upgrade ... while hoping that CPU temp will go down with the 9th Gen Intel Mobile
It looks so powerful and destructive, and it's such small.
Nice to see the new design for the Stealth, but damn its a major bummer the individual key lighting was removed. Would have been instant buy for me if it kept those since it now checks all the other areas such as a more discrete logo etc..
It kinda sets the design back again imo, since the backlight bleed is awful and takes away the clean awesome design Razer is known for on their laptop lineup. Again, major bummer!
When will the 4K configuration be available for purchase?
Very nice. Ordered mine yesterday and will be here friday. Should be good enough for light indie gaming and maybe video editing. Should go will with my Razer Core for when I have it at home.
The new blade stealth looks pretty nice, but I'm kinda bummed out by the interesting tradeoffs they made from last year's model to this year's. I personally have the Late 2017 blade stealth and enjoy using it for school every day. I find it strange that they upgraded the cpu and gpu, but lowered the base resolution down to 1080 without the touch. I never really considered the blade stealth as a "gaming" laptop like its older siblings. I always thought the of the blade as the laptop that you could easily bring on the go and it had the benefit of also being a gaming laptop if you wanted to. I'm gonna miss the customizable keyboard lighting, but will look forward to more improvements that Razer will make
If you can play around with the setting, on Blade and in game you can keep 8750H cpu temperature in 80ish, pretty similar temperature with 7700H.
I also hype for new Turing mobile, rumor maxq 2080/70/60 was end this year announcement, but with big mess on Turing launch, I’m kind pessimistic getting it as early adopter, long preorder waiting time, artifacts, DOA gpu is known issue on this gen.
This is great, please update us with early benchmarks with your core setting since we don’t have eta yet in EU.
If you think of it as a Gunmetal Razer Blade Stealth you'll see it's not as much of a side grade as it seems. The gunmetal model only had white leds. So you atleast have the option to change the color on this one. I will miss being able to change WASD to a different color. Not a deal breaker. And at 13.3" 1080p is perfectly fine. Plus it should consume less battery power giving it better battery life compared to the 4k model. But, I agree the loss of touchscreen is a bummer. Plus I like the non glowing razer emblem. It makes the stealth look "Stealth". All in all I think they did enough with this update.
Can this laptop compared to the Razer Blade 15 in gaming performance if I get the Razer Core X with the GTX 1060 6GB video card?
Hm, never really thought about it as a Gunmetal Blade stealth upgrade, but now that you mention it, I can see it now. I guess to achieve the long battery life, they had to forgo the base 4k resolution in favor of a better gpu and cpu. It definitely is a great machine, it's just up to the user for what they look for in a thin and light laptop.
Actually the stealth V4 might make me think it's a better fit with the quad core processor and the individual RGB keys. Is the i7-8550U good for games like Doom Eternal and Street Fighter 5 if I use one of the Razer Cores with a GTX 1060 6GB? Could it compared to the Razer 15 in performance?
No, still you have to face weaker cpu and limited TB3 bandwidth in a core setting, but it’s good enough for running those games to run in 1080p way better than the intel UHD 620, maybe medium to high. To match direct MoBo PCIe gpu speed on 1060 maxq Blade 15 you need to pair with high end gpu, I would say 1070 or maybe better one, depends also game and setting though, 8550U is good enough to do that, similar performance with previous Blade 2017 7700H only maybe lame on some open world title because of less peak frequency stability.
