  1. in San Francisco. Oh well, but if any of my French friends come visit anytime soon, I will let you know! =) good luck and congrats on the new blade. it's an awesome machine.
  2. Yes I am so glad I ended going for it, such an awesome machine. I am not travelling to the US that often lately, but thanks anyway!
  3. Now that you guys tried the new kaby blade out, would you guys still recommend to me to keep my 2016 GTX 1060 one? lol
    So envious of that battery life and silent fan people are mentioning =(

    Ive been using this thing all day today since about 6am, and the fans came on once when I was downloading Overwatch, again once while I was downloading World of Warcraft. Those are the only two times I've heard the fans all day. I've been using Chrome with like six tabs open, Skype, Mail, etc. Each time the fans came on for about 5 seconds.

    This thing is really nice. I'm playing around with the Chroma profiles to setup the color keyboard patterns for the games I play...super cool. Speakers on this thing surprised me too. Being as those I also have a 2016 Macbook Pro (killer sound) I expected the sound on here to suck. It totally doesnt. In fact, they both sound really good.

    Looking forward to playing some Overwatch on here later today. I wonder if they have a green and black skin for D.Va lol.
  6. you might need to start playing only Tracer (her Sporty skin is totally Razer colored)

    That is crazy :confused_:

    D.Va's Carbon skin does seem like its "Blade Inspired" :big_grin_:

    I called Amqzon and they told me they were getting units by March 1 :slightly_sad:
  9. So people are too scared to buy with Razer themselves?
  10. Same boat. :slightly_sad:

    Has someone already got a solution for the 1 second lag? It happens for example when I press on the battery icon or when I open Facebook app

    Stop using facebook and don't worry about battery life. Done. Problem solved :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
    Now really. A theory, the lag might be due to lack of asynchronous communication between components at HW level so when polled, the OS must block until info is available... it happens in all machines in different degrees. I recall having two MSIs, same models, one did it, the other not.. is it always the same lag? Or it varies?

    The battery life is better, but the fans will still get pretty loud, however, the machine does not get too hot, so if you can RMA, do it and get the new one

    It's the same. It annoys me too much that I can ignore it. It's like using a old windows laptop instead of a 2k dollar machine.

    Still waiting on that somewhat elusive Nordic Keyboard...

    Yes indeed, very annoying. It seems to be a optimus issue with windows 10 when the dGPU is momentarily triggered. It can be reproduced consistently by clicking on display settings on the desktop menu.
    There are no real solutions yet, hopefull Microsoft, Nvidia are working on it.
    The workarounds involve keeping the GTX 1060 active and the problem is gone....but then so is battery life.

    Well that´s a pitty but I´m glad that I´m not the only one and that this is not Hardware related. Thanks for your Reply :smile_:
