    Any chance for official Linux support ?

    I'm pretty sure the 2019 blade stealth will support linux. One of my professors actually bought a blade stealth and ran linux on his 2016 model. Maybe ask any of the linux users in the linux forum if they've done a linux conversion on the 2019 stealth. I personally have just stuck with windows and use a ubuntu terminal to do gcc or whatever I need.

    I actually just watched this video. I guess it really depends on what the user wants. On paper, the Blade Stealth has better specs and is a few hundred dollars cheaper. But I guess some consumers who are big fans of the Apple ecosystem may choose the latter over the stealth. Both great laptops, but I personally like the stealth lol

    Considering this basically what I was trying to decide I wish this was released a bit quicker. Or maybe I shouldn't have such a trigger finger and buy the New Stealth as soon as I saw it. lol.

    Everything I've read in the last few days really points to the Stealth being better in almost every way. The one main point that Apple wins is the screen. It would have been nice if Razer had a 2560x1440 screen. I think that would've been a great middle ground and would've helped justify the expensive pricing on the MX150 model.

    I'm about ready to drive out to Tennessee and get my laptop from customs myself. Hurry up Razer!

    It will come one day. Too bad shipping isn't as fast as Razer's computers lol. I'd also argue that Apple's trackpad is top tier, but Razer's trackpads are getting much better. It definitely is a tradeoff to have a dedicated GPU over a 2560x1440 res screen.

    Well mine been stuck in customs for about five days now. Fedex says they're waiting on Razer for a Commercial Invoice. So it's sounds like negligence to me. Lol. I'll contact again today since it's due in today at the latest. Been a long time since I've used an Apple trackpad. But I do remember them being the most responsive and accurate compared to any windows trackpad. Unless I'm just watching youtube or something I always use a mouse. So I normally don't notice. Lol. It's funny because the 12.5" Blade stealth had a 2560x1440. But I guess very few manufacturers make that screen resolution for laptops. Probably another reason macbooks are so expensive. Lol

    I'm in the same boat. I purchased mine right after it was available and it has also been stuck in customs. I have contacted Razer support a few times and all they say is "our logistics team is working on it." I sure hope so because I want it so bad!

    Well for what it's worth I feel better it's not just mine. Hopefully they get on it soon. I know its the holidays, but you still need to be clear with customers when their packages will be missing the scheduled delivery date. When I get off work I'm gonna try talking to customer service and see if they can call them. I want mine pretty badly too. :big_grin_:

    MacBook is great with their trackpad, sound and design...that’s all, hardware wise. I want to look on my hand that 1080p seemly great one, for media consumption maybe fine on that size, but not gaming personally, can’t going back to 1080p, though bigger 1080p will bottleneck mx150 lol. Had mx150 with 1080p ultrbook, it was fine resolution for some games but it was too hot on the cassis doing long session, seemly new stealth has a great cooling system and for Rocket League and cs go on the go it’s sweet portable device.

  12. Has anyone found a skin provider for the 2019 Razer Blade Stealth? I love the machine, but holy fingerprints.

    In the same boat as well... It looks like all orders that routed through Tennessee got stuck. Got similar responses when talking to customer service.

    I'm just hoping everything is sorted out and delivered before all the holiday traveling begins.

    I got a slightly more detailed response last night. Since I brought up that my laptop missed the delivery date and was officially late. What I was told was that all orders were going to take five days to get through Customs. Saturday and Sunday don't count as they apparently don't work on weekends. So today makes four days in customs for my order. So friday is likely the earliest it will ship out to me.

    I just checked Fedex tracking - looks like mine cleared customs and should be here tomorrow!

    Hopefully yours is the same!
