    My boss at work is tempted by these... and he's an apple fanboy :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:. Very well done! I personally think the price should be a couple hundred less but I think it is fairly priced if you absolutely must have the best build quality and thinnest form factor. I won't be trading in the Razer Blade 15' but it is tempting!

    Let your boss know they have an optional 2 year extension warranty. That might make him convert. :wink_:

    Lol, sounds like you have an awesome boss. But imo, the new blade stealth is better specced and is cheaper than the apple laptops. Understandably though, it is hard to get out of the apple ecosystem after years of being a customer. I have the 2018 blade stealth and am enjoying the performance in a thin package

    I wonder if the MX150 model still has the Intel onboard with Optimus or if the MX150 is already low powered enough so they don't need the Intel onboard so it only has the MX150. Have an app that doesn't play nice with Optimus.

    Playing my favorite game. . .file updates. Lol.

    I won't have anything to report tonight, but hopefully tomorrow I'll have my Razer Core hooked up and let everyone know how it goes with this laptop.

    Finger print smudges already. . .:mad_:

    Need Advise/Wisdom ...
    So, I got my Daughter the 2019 Blade Stealth (4x, touchscreen, 512 GB SSD version) for going off to college. Now, she's decided that she wants to be able to do the VR thing (Vive).
    In looking at eGPU's - I liked the V2 with the extra connections for Keyboard, Mouse so all she had to do was plug/unplug the Thunderbolt for the "home setup"

    So:
    1. I will have to get an eGPU for VR?
    2. The Core V2 is sold out or discontinued or being replaced?
    3. Will the V2 and X Core(s) support the RTX2070/2080 or do I need to get the Older GTX?

    Advise please...

    Thanks in Advance!
    Steve

    If your daughter wants to play games on the Vive then yes an eGpu like the Razer Core is gonna be required to run it. The mx150 is not strong enough. And either the 2070 or 2080 will be more than enough.

    And unless she needs the smaller Razer Core v2 then the Razer Core X is honestly a better buy. The V2 is only more expensive because it's smaller.

    also because of the extra ports... which i think are worth

    I forgot the Razer Core X doesn't have any usb ports. Whoops. :eek_:

    I own the V2 so I that's my bad for forgetting.

    AYY you finally got it! Looks real clean (minus the finger prints). Definitely, strange looking at it compared to my 2018 Blade stealth lol.

    You should see the top lid. lol. Dbrand can't make a skin for this fast enough. :wink_:

    Lol, yeah Dbrand will definitely help with those fingerprints. I guess they're working on it because the new blade stealth re-design kinda came unexpectedly. I say kinda because it is already established that Razer will refresh their products every year, but I don't think anyone expected the new boxed out design. So Dbrand has to adjust for that. I need to get a Dbrand skin for my blade stealth, I'm stuck deciding on the carbon fiber, matrix, or the matte black.

    Yeah Razer is one of the few companies that keep product announcements hush hush until they're actually launched. And the new look played a big part into why I impulse bought that laptop. Very clean and distinctive look. The muted logo is definitely the way I think the company should go for the future laptop released. Though I will say if they release a mercury white version I'm gonna be upset. lol

    See I want Black Marble or Dragon Skin. lol. I do have the carbon fiber on my old Blade 14. And it's nice. Matte Black might be a good look too as it will look stock.

    OOHH, if they had a mercury white blade stealth, that would be so nice. Would definitely get dirtier quicker, but still. The dragon skin is nice too, another one I thought about was the camo with the fancy reflectiveness.

    Interested in some 1440p and 4k gaming tests with the Razer core and the new Stealth.

    https://www.notebookcheck.net/Razer-Blade-Stealth-i7-8565U-GeForce-MX150-Laptop-Review.376656.0.html

    Notebook Check has their full review up. It pretty much sums up how I feel about the unit. Though I can't compare my battery life as I forget to keep track of it.

    I know right? Lol. I normally hate silver/white laptops. But razer does it right some how. Probably because all their laptops are black so it looks appealing.
    Yeah the camo one is slick.

    Give me until tomorrow and I'll have some 1080ti numbers for you all at 2560x1440, 3440x1440, and 4K. And some 3D Mark scores.

    I got called in to work today and was out at a Christmas party yesterday. So I didn't have much time to mess with the Razer Core on mine yet.

    I promise I'll get to it.o_O

    Nice result though...What!! Look at the contras, is he crazy, expecting 144Hz!? And per key chroma lightning would also add extra heat. Those are useless in ultrabook, never use per key light on my stealth, only zone for better battery life unlike on its big brother. Hotter surface than other competitors!? he answered on that review why. soldered ram!? I think non other ultrabooks that he mentioned upgradeable. Razer central log in!? He can uninstall that and using the blade, as trade off loosing fans and lightning controll, sounds to me looking for the weak spots;)
    You don’t have to hurry and promising things, enjoy that first do some your tweaks for the best setting and share us the results...can’t wait though:big_grin_:
