    Can you not buy it from the UK site?
    I noticed the EU one only has Norwegian keyboards (possibly as the only option)

    My 4k laptop was fulfilled by Amazon last week. It took 5 months but I have to admit I am very pleased with it now.

    Great to hear. I kinda wish I'd managed it due to the extended protection option but had enough after 3 months!

    Enjoy, it is a thing of beauty - and the best of the laptops I've used :)

    I find it amazing that they're still not shipping 4k in Amazon and even on the razer store they're not regularly in stock.

    What do you think is the limitation - screen, cpu, gpu stock issues?

    Cheers

    I'm pretty sure it's the 4k screen holding it back - though intel are having a cpu shortage at the moment so are probably prioritising Dell etc.

    Mostly though I would guess at manufacturing. Razer had to guess how many 144hz screens and how many 4k ones would need to be built and my guess is they thought "gamers" would go for the 144hz every time.

    Forgetting that most gamers buying Razer laptops probably plan to use an external monitor most of the time, so 4k gives better options when "just using it like a laptop" - and with 4k scaling 1080p perfectly gaming on the screen is fine.

    So with such low volumes, Razer is only giving a few at a time to Amazon so they still haven't fulfilled their back orders so can't open the stock page (all other 3rd party sites seem to be the same).

    Some people may not be as obsessive as us, checking all the different sites and knowing they are available.

    Late reply... Razer moved onto the 2019 models now, and I think the 4k will be oled. Not sure isI want an oled laptop.

    I have an oled TV. They're amazing. But not sure I'm confident about static tool bars and stuff.
