@puppydax this dude just proved my point
Who knows... knowing Razer probably a month behind.
Don't worry they only had like 2 available for preorder typical Razer. They will open orders back up soon.
Oh I'm not saying that they should make more. I totally understand the business concept behind it and it makes sense. I simply commented because I was sad that I didn't get one in lol.
Ahh gotcha. This is going to be my first Razer product and have been obsessively reviewing/reading about their products. I've always been a Mac guy, but have been fed up with lack of support for the GPU area. Memory is always nicer with the Mac's, but I need some more power to it.
How many of you guys are still going to go with the QHD+ screen versus the Matte?
So you wouldn't like it if razer did make more so more people like me or you could get out hands on one?? Please enlighten me with what you make of the business side of things from razer

"Make more units..."
So that when the inevitable happens, and Razer refreshes to Kaby Lake, they are stuck with tons of unsold units? Think about what you are asking for...
I didn't join to argue, so I'm just leaving this here. They're a company to make money (as most are), no company is going to overstock/exceed their expected sales to makes items available for you and I right away. They're going to strategically plan inventory so they're not forced to liquidate old products because they decided to make a TON of laptops so they're available at moments notice and no one to buy them anymore. I'm okay with this.
I know you didn't join to argue, but doesn't the sole fact that there are people like you and I (de facto thousands of people like us) mean that razer is not making enough units right of the bat?
Probably so. I'm sure the demand is extremely high and they cannot keep up, but who knows where the bottleneck is. Could be a supplier issue that's causing them not to have enough available. I'm okay, either way we will get one soon. I literally just sold my 2015 MBP w/ dGPU so I'm schooling without a laptop. It sucks, but it'll be worth the wait.
I agree but that "soon" that you mentioned for Razer means a couple of months. ( a couple of months for the razerzone.com store but close to half a year for European retailers such as hidevolution.com)
That's quite unfortunate, but what else is there to do? Can't force them to poop these laptops out faster than the supplies they are getting to make them lol.
Really love the form factor for these laptops, but if they are not available soon enough, I'll have to go to another competitor with similar build quality/specs.
I would advice you to start investing time and research to another brand because its always f*d up with razer and their lack of stock... Dont get me wrong I absolutely love the brand and all of their products especially laptops, but the biggest thing that annoys me is that the only good company in the world (razer) cannot sort out the business side of things... (it surely cannot be that hard for a multimillion dollar company)
Swag, I work in logistics for a large company. It is waaaay cheaper to do low level production on a steady basis than to do the type of batch production you are asking for.
Think of it in terms of assembly lines or even factories. Razer can completely use one assembly line, and produce 10 units a day, every day, for a total of 2,500 a year (assuming 250 business days a year).
Razer can produce 2,500 over a one month basis, which as any factory can only produce 10 units a day, or 200 a month (20 business days), you will need 12.5 assembly lines or factories. These are more expensive, as they are on a one time basis and you are utilizing a larger percentage of the available lines (I.e. creating demand, which pushes up prices). Lastly, under this new model you can't make any incremental changes that save cost/learn from previous runs as the total production is over before you have that opportunity.
It's not good business sense. I think that Razer is just barely beginning to make a profit on these things, it wouldn't take much to destabilize the entire chain.
Oh I am, I'm not restricted by brand lol. Looking at the competition out there, but one of the things that brought me to Razer Blade was the design. Beautiful, but if not available, too bad for them.
Too be honest there is currently no competition for the razer blade
Then let me replace competition with *similar spec'd machines.
Agreed, but... That means under 300 units a month for a product that is demanded by millions???????? Also that means we shouldn't even be thinking about a Europe release?
What I am saying should happen is instead of selling 2 units at launch use multiple assembly lines to gather as many as you can (for launch) and after that just use one line as you said and make 10 a day
ooooh so shiny and new.
and a 1060, just take my money.
Unfortunately razer can't take your money because they only sold 2 machines at launch and the next batch will be available in about 20 years
That would raise the cost and complexity and also affect the demand for the 10. The world is full of compromises - the fact that we like these things so much is proof that Razer is doing SOMETHING right.
All that being said, I do wish they would do better demand planning. I agree that they could be doing more to have steadier launches, as the demand seems to be there.
