    Thanks for the tip. This could be a solution for me actually.
    It ships to where I live so I don't need to aim for the specific date when I'm in Canada.

  5. All your Razer laptops have packed a punch and either kept up or surpassed my expectation. Great job

    It's a great value, especially for a premium built machine. I'm a Mac guy and I'm waiting for them to restock to order mine.

    If I like the keyboard on the mac 2012 air, should I use the computers keyboard, razers keyboard(which one), or my own keyboard.

    To my knowledge, the current Blade laptops (minus Pro) have 1.1mm travel with 58g of actuation. What works for you, might not work for someone else.
    I'd look at the Blackwidow Chroma V2. There's different key switches.

    My order got cancelled AGAIN! I can't begin to express my unpleasant temperament right now. They money was deducted from my bank account 2 days ago. So I thought everything was solid and my order went though. I look just now and my money was refunded. I don't know if there's a glitch on the site, but the 13.3 inch 256gb stealth was back in stock. I added to my cart and when I hit purchase... it was removed. I REALLY want to show love and support to RΛZΞR, but I need a computer for work, before I leave on tour. Not sure if I should wait it out or look elsewhere? Any admins want to chime in? [​IMG]

    So, a larger screen in the same chassis but only QHD and the same specs than the 2016 stealth (maybe the SSD is a newer model). Am I the only one that is not impressed ... ?

    Don't forget about windows Precision trackpad and 16gb ram base model. Yes, i am also quite not impressed but only about the price, it's right direction and thumbs up for Razer to shrink its bezel, they should put a bit lower price for gunmetal one because the lack of chroma keyboard. Btw it's QHD+ 1800p, compared to old QHD 1440 one, it's same display with on Blade 14 QHD+ late 2016.

    Couldn't Chroma simply be disabled for board meetings (if Synapse 3.14 actually worked, that is)? (-;

    I find it a little disingenuous (if not misleading) to combine size and weight in the same cell. (-;
    The XPS is also configurable to have 16GB memory (for an extra 100USD), and sorry to pee
    on the Stealth "smaller bezel" parade, the XPS 13 Touch has *much* thinner bezels than the
    Stealth. Having said that, I'd probably still opt for the Stealth if I needed an ultrabook... LOL

    The 13.3 inch Stealth had 50% smaller bezel, which allows the larger screen. Yes, the CPU & Ram are the same, which are current 7th Gen intel Processors. They switched from Synaptics to Precision on the touchpad, So it's buttery smooth. On the 12.5 inch it's a 2MP webcam, on the 13.3 it's a 720p. Those are the only things I've seen and noticed.

    Gunmetal one ordered from Amazon :)
    Shipping to Europe only $16.

    There are tax fees though (your country VAT rate added to the total of cost of an unit and shipment).
    Not sure about warranty either :/

    I'll need to wait more than a month but I'm doing very well with my 2014 Blade Stealth, no rush then.
    Razer laptops are already my top choice but if 3:2 screen was a feature and full hardware support for Linux I would became a priest of Razerianism most likely ;)

    I must admit there is a step back, however. Keyboard design with former Razer font was superior. I don't care about Chroma so much, this I'll be missing though. All characters were highlighted including secondary (these typed with Fn or Shift), plus the letters were laid out in the middle of each key. This gave Blade very slick look, symmetry was mindblowing and very pleasant to look at.
    A minor thing but giving more character to Razer laptops. Personally, I believe that Razer should stick to this design if the intention is to become a well-recognized and admired brand.

    Improvement with logo design looks awesome tough (on both, black and gunmetal).
    The former logo design was plastic-fantastic too much.

    Just correction, there's no Blade stealth in 2014;) I think yours, base on the picture is Blade 14 maybe with gtx860. Your current Blades GPU still way powerful than the Gunmetal that you ordered unless you use eGPU setting with the stealth. Had 2015 one, and agree there's backward with lightning on secondary buttons but, with my personal chroma setting i could remember its position. Btw lightning logo still same, from plastic in all Blade line except the new stealth with Gunmetal one.

    It's not the matter whether one gets to remember, I type without watching but the previous highlight was better anyway. Why make it worse?

    I bought mine in the 2014. It's the 1st gen GTX 870M but not the first batch.
    The photo is not mine but keyboard looks the same.

    Thanks for the tip regarding GPU differences, I'm aware. Since a while I play mostly on desktop and started to carry laptop on a daily basis recently. Screen too small has kept me away from Stealth even though I was close purchasing it like a month ago. The 13.3" release matches exactly what I'm after currently. Perfect timing for me and the colour too. I carry it client site as a contracting software developer. Although toxic green on black is really to me liking and it drags attention, I have a feeling Gunmetal fits better in a professional setting. Besides, It looks amazing as well.

    Exactly the same happened to me when I have ordered it on June 21 (Tuesday) with PayPal!

    They have sent me an e-mail about it yesterday at 9 AM German time... only 6 hours later I have received the Availability notification e-mail again... I tried to order another time now yesterday with my credit card and I PRAY it works this time...

    P.S. after the second time buying it, it was sold out again a few hours later, and today at 9 AM I got another notification e-mail that the Razer Blade Stealth is available...

    Haha, yes I also forget mentioning m;) mine was 970m so yours is 870m. Remember exactly because i almost bought your version though.
    I love the Gunmetal one looks so much, even have newest Blade 14, i will definitely grab it, but it's not available in EU yet, and honestly i feel the price setting is not appropriate because the lack of chroma RGB, Razer pheriperals with no RGB cost less than RGB one, they could offer stealth besides the color, in two options with and without RGB and lighted logo in lower price, so i hope they correcting the price once they launch it in EU, especially Gunmetal one:)
