    Looks like Amazon has removed the new Blade from its site...... My pre-order is still showing in my Orders list but the link for the Blade goes to an error page. Can anyone else that pre-ordered from Amazon confirm this?

    Same thing, I pre-ordered earlier this week and when I click on the link to the product page now I get a photo of a dog saying the link is gone. If you search for any razer blade nothing comes up.

    Side note, apparently Amazon has dog profiles...

    Wow...it is gone. What happened? I was going to order on Amazon since their shipping and returns process is better. Maybe Razer saw our comments and had them remove it.

    I doubt that Razer would make them remove it being that Amazon is probably Razers top retailer. The only thing I can think is that they got too many pre-orders. My order wasnt cancelled (at least not yet) by Amazon so I'm guessing they are still planning on fulfilling it, oneday.....

    On another note, I just received notification that the other laptop I have been eyeing (EVGA SC17 w/GTX 1070) is now available. At least through the EVGA site. Guess now it will just be a matter of which laptop Amazon gets in stock first and that will prob be the one I end up with.

    This is what I got from Amazon support:
    "Thank you so much for hanging in there Steve, so it looks like this item was removed from our site and is no longer available on Amazon. So I would suggest to not cancel this order as yet, because if it does become available again this item will ship out to you. However if you need the item sooner, we won't be able to provide you with an exact date"

    Edit: Just to add second part of the conversation

    "Sorry for the long wait Steve, I just needed to do some research and I have gone through all our resources. I understand that you need know when the item will be available again, however at the moment we do not have further information on this item at this time. I can't have this issue escalated as we do not know why this item was removed, this will not guarantee any updates on the item availability"

    Def weird that it just "disappeared" from the site. Ill just leave my order alone for now and see what happens with it. Thanks for the info.

    **Update**
    So for s & g's i hit up amazon support via chat and this is the response that I got about it:
    "
    Junaid Parvez: actually the manufacturer is not providing the inventory for the item, thats the reason the item is not available with amazon and have cancelled all the preorders of the customers, sorry for the inconvenience caused by this I would loveto ship the remaining orders toyou.
    with the expedited shipping as well. "

    So that is not sounding good. Im guessing they will re-list it again once they can get inventory but who knows when that will be.

    I'm guessing they won't re-list till after October 25. I'm waiting on Amazon for the most part unless Razer does a better deal. I just trust Amazon's shipping more.

    The question now becomes do I cancel through Amazon and just order through Razer or do I keep my Amazon order? I don't think MS stores will offer the FHD display as they did not before. So I will have to order it online regardless. I'm just stuck between a rock and hard place now...

    I'd say people are way overthinking this. Your order hasn't been canceled (which means they still intend to honor it), and the page issue is only a few hours old. It may be they're not taking more pre-orders, or that Razer and Amazon didn't communicate on ship dates, or just that someone screwed up the page settings. You presumably ordered from Amazon for a reason (easier return policies, rebates, etc.). Relax, see if there's more info in a few days.

    How do you know that? I was waiting to buy the FHD 256GB version at the MS store since I could get the 10% student discount :slightly_sad:

    As far as I know the FHD version was never available in store, only online. If you go back to MS store and check stock they never had the FHD version only QHD+. Chances are this time will be the same. I'm pretty sure Razer brought the FHD back as a special option by popular demand since the skylake refresh did not have that option.

    My issue is that Amazon did cancel my preorder when I asked about it. When I preordered it I also ordered a mouse, keyboard, Xbox one controller, backpack and some other accessories since I was getting 0% apr for a 12 months. Well when they canceled the laptop order I lost the finance promo and have now had to return and send back everything else I ordered just to reorder all of it again later when I can order the laptop. Has basically just become a huge pia and im a little annoyed at this point.

    So my only chance of getting that model will be buying from the razer store? Cause Amazon didn't have that one either :slightly_sad: I don't mind waiting so I hope microsoft starts selling that model. Thanks! :)
     
  15. Anyone with the 1060 blade run some benchmarks? I just ran 3D Mark Time Spy and got 3506, can anyone else run time spy and see what they get.

    well Razer store and Amazon once they have them available again. There are other online retailers that offer them but you will pay a little more like at Hidevolution.
     
  17. Anyone have a sound as if something is being written to a HD ( I know there isn't one ) so it must be coil whine off their 1060 blade? Even under light load I can hear it, especially with my ear turned toward the blade instead of looking directly at it. Not a loud noise, but annoying in a quiet area. I don't know if I should RMA or not, thats why I was wanting to hear from others with the 1060 blade first.

    Here are some benchmark results all 1080p and didn't change any other settings.
    3DMARK Time Spy: 3,489
    3DMARK Sky Diver: 21,021
    Unigine Heaven:
    Avg FPS: 97
    Score: 2453

    Really disheartening to have the Amazon orders up in the air. Not sure if I should risk leaving it alone, or cancelling and ordering through Razer website. Be nice if corporations better communicated this sort of thing (Razer and Amazon).

    Figured I'd get it faster from Amazon with Prime :/

    If they're canceling orders already then I don't think it'd make much of a difference. You'd probably have to re-order once it's back on. I hope it's soon.
