    What the source for the screen being 60 Hz?
    Could not find any source regarding this info.

    Hardware limitation of current connections available. (HDMI+DisplayPort) are limited in the data stream they support. Usually if its 4k+ resolution it minimizes refresh rate to 60hz. Or if you push it to 120/144hz then it limits resolution of the output to 1080p or close to such. Unless they have a proprietary way to transmit the data from GPU to Screen then its going to be those current hardware limitations.

    This thing can handle the heat of 6820:

    Razer laptops obviously will never ever benefit from something more powerful than a standard 45W 4-core laptop CPU.

    Ugh I am not quite ready to spend that much on a laptop. Fortunately I do not even have any room for it.

    You would though :smile_cat:
    :flushed:...
    Yay new avvie!

    My only question is...is this thing Core ready? Didn't see any mention of it. I guess you don't have many upgrade options anyway since this thing already houses a GTX 1080.

    This thing's an absolute BEAST. As always, there are a ton of complaints already about the system specs, but c'mon, G-Sync, 4K, 100% Adobe RGB, mechanical Chroma keyboard, VR ready, even a built in mini-Firefly all in a package that's thinner than a slice of :bread:. Yes, it may not be 100% catered to gamers (thus the 60hz touch screen), but creative professionals and game devs are going to love this thing.

    Dat vapor-cooled GTX 1080 tho :triumph:

    As a game dev I can tell you that nobody will use this. rather build a normal desktop pc for half the cost.

    ChaosViperSC2 I think the point is that it's all in a portable package for people who are moving around all the time. Not everyone has the same needs, you know? I mean anyone can build a desktop with better specs for less, but that misses the point of a gaming laptop.

    ... heavier than Aorus x7 DT, silly PSU size and shape (quirky at best, unlike the blade 14 psu), 17" laptop without a proper numberpad, no proper IPS option. IMO the trackpad should go back to a normal place (don't fix if it ain't broke) and big speakers should be added as per classic design.

    I like that they have started including more ports and marketing it as a feature (do the same on the blade 14 please)

    You can't do it for "half". The cheapest 4k IPS G-SYNC display is $830. A system with comparable specs to the lowest end Blade Pro (dual 256GB SSDs, one PCIe m.2, one SATA) runs around $2700, and it isn't portable.

    Try 400-500 for a 4k G-Sync and that system in a PC you could easily do for 1500-1800

    That moment when you realise that razer has released 5 laptops in one year. Theres no way to keep up with them when the ordering takes 3 months.

    Sorta wished I would held out for the 14 inch razer blade v2 though, but college required me to get one.
    And also who would ever game on the laptops display? Its almost neglible for me, I always use an external display when I game, laptop screen are too small.

    The mechanical keyboard alone is enough. Also, a lot of people still miss the point of portability.

    I said 4k IPS G-SYNC. The one you linked to is a TN panel, not IPS. IPS is as close to IGZO as you're going to get on a desktop G-SYNC display.

    If you're in the San Francisco area, we have one on display at RazerStore San Francisco for you to try out. That ULP mechanical keyboard is unreal.

    Damn, why is that screen acting like a miror...
     
  15. Is that a magnetic power supply?!?!?!

    I'm intrigued as well, yet no one has commented on this yet. Looks like an unusual power port/plug, could it be magnetic?

    I'm aware of that MSI, but besides its aesthetics, size, and weight,
    that one has the 6820HK and not the 6820HQ, the main difference
    being overclockability vs vPro/TXT. I happen to care more about
    the latter. Come to think of it, these features may put constraints
    on overall system design, which could increase costs beyond just
    the cost of the CPU and chipset (which, BTW, are *identical* for all
    three, and so are their thermals).

    http://ark.intel.com/compare/88967,88969,88970


    Well... all three CPU:s appear to have the exact same thermals,
    if Intel's "quick specs" pages are to be believed... (see the link above)

    So... I'm almost thinking of taking the plunge to buy this, but how could anybody be okay with actually taking this thing outside of their house?

    I feel like I'll be in a constant state of paranoia of accidentally dropping it, someone stealing it, pouring liquid on it, etc.

    There are so many things that could happen to a laptop. I'm fairly new to Razer, but I haven't noticed any extended warranties being offered.

    Can anybody say anything to assuage my fears here?
