    A perfect killing macchine for professional . photos, videos, audio and also games. It cost a lot, yes, bit MSI, Asus, Alienware etc etc have to learn how make a desktop replacement that is Also portable. This blade pro is the status quo, it's perfection in power and size... And yes... You must pay for that. Apple sucks.

    Thanks for noticing :big_grin_:
    Made it a few days ago to celebrate my Vive purchase.

    It seems to me that people are forgetting one aspect about the Blade Pro, it is designed to be the very top of the line in computer parts, naturally that would cost a pretty penny. This isn't supposed to cater to the average user and I am pretty sure they are well aware that this isn't their volume production unit and won't sell as much as the regular Blade.

    You absolutely can build a desktop with similar performance for just over half the cost, but this is nothing new as small-factor parts cost more and companies also have further overhead costs that need to be paid for.

    Realistically if you were someone who required power and portability this would be an excellent product to get, while I just recently built a desktop I will likely be getting the next edition of the Blade Pro as I envisage my situation to change in the near future.

    I believe it's 60Hz monitor which is no go for me... Razer would need just to release 2 versions of it: FHD with 120hz support and 4K with 60hz ...

    IPS is a display type, IGZO is a control type... a conduit for the signal. They are apples and oranges, completely different.
    Per the specs that are released for the monitor on this, what i posted is equivalent, also much larger in terms of size.

    The design is still not my type. Spec is impressive for the size. Price is expected from Razer notebook. I have to say that I choose blade over pro every time.

    And next time anyone make a thin and light 17inch laptop please consider this question. It's it really necessary to make it thin and light. Because I don't know anyone who carry a 17 inch laptop around. If I am going to buy a 17 inch laptop, I buy a desktop replacement for better cooling.

    And lastly, please us the new cooling in the blade and put a 1070 in it.

    Everything is done correctly with this one.
    Only thing wrong is the price.

    I'm traveling a lot with my 17inch laptop, just because I can't really enjoy gaming with a 14 inch monitor, so I'd wish my laptop would be thiner and lighter
    However I do have to say that I'd be very uncomfortable with carrying a 4000€ machine around, in case I drop it, it gets wet, gets scratched etc...

    In context, I'm referring to IGZO panel, IPS panel, and TN panel.

    Cheap G-SYNC displays use TN panels. TN panels have narrow viewing angles, a problem magnified the larger the display gets. IGZO panels don't have these viewing angle problems. Since there are no IGZO panel-equipped monitors with G-SYNC, the next best option is a monitor with an IPS panel, and that streets for $830.

    A TN laptop display would be horrendous

    LOL I especially like that random last bit there.
    Well that's a TN panel though, not IPS which are more expensive. Moot though because Blade uses IGZO. TN is the oldest technology and definitely the cheapest to manufacture. No matter whether IGZO is used with TFT or OLED, it's faster than IPS and has better viewing angles than TN, and saves lots of power to boot.

    Anyways, there always seems to be this persistent confusion around gaming laptops. When someone says "wow this gaming laptop is so expensive I rather build a desktop!" they are completely missing the point. All gaming laptops are expensive relative to desktops. Now that's truly apples to oranges. And yes, anyone can build a better spec'd desktop for less, but none of us can do it in a package that's as portable and svelte as the Blade. That's the whole point here.

    The same thing can be said about phones. Latest flagship top model phones can cost upward of $1000 USD. You can build a desktop computer for less that plays better games, does web calls, and does everything else a phone can do and more, but again, that completely misses the point. If you're a person who doesn't value portability as much then gaming laptops probably aren't for you.

    Except that it's not; at least, not in every department.
    The CPU is top mid-grade, at best...
    And, they stopped half-way with the amount of RAM,
    although I can see that cramming in two more slubs
    (even if soldered) could've used up precious real estate
    [now allocated to legacy features like SDXC and HDMI,
    which I'd rarely see myself using "on the road"; in my book,
    those belong to a dock...].

    Completely agree with you there, comparing desktops to laptops is apples to oranges.

    However, this is exactly what razer is doing with their quote 'A desktop in a laptop' so i see the confusion and argument for both sides.

    It actually is the standard for all other gaming laptops.

    Yes, there may be laptops out that that may pack better hardware, but how about the size? That is still something that a lot of people completely miss. It's easier to cram the best hardware you could find if given the space. But you'd then compromise on portability.

    In regard to the legacy features, it's something YOU would rarely use, but not for the people it's designed for. Having to carry less peripherals with you is better than having to bring a ton of peripherals just because the laptop doesn't have the needed port/feature. Yes, you can carry a dock if you want, but that ruins the whole concept of portability and convenience. You're going to start carrying a card dock, the next thing is you'd need to carry an adapter and so on. Might as well bring your desktop with you.

    There is no confusion at all. Just the lack of knowledge on what portability is. Their quote for the Blade Pro "A laptop that can rival/equal/the same as a desktop PC". Do they actually need to use that whole sentence just for people to get their point?

    Using a desktop CPU would produce too much heat not counting the TDP, Sagers have them but they are massive.
