    Hey, no wonder why I don't see you around here anymore. You gave your Blade to your brother and moved on to another company! I missed ya bud.

    I can't disagree with you. If there's one criticism I have on the Blade Pro it's going to be the price/spec ratio. I liked the recent pricing trends on the Blades and feel that $3700 is steep.

    Aorus clearly wins on CPU & RAM. The extra storage is nice to have as well. The screen is a bit subjective though because the 4K 60hz G-Sync vs QHD 120hz G-Sync matchup depends on what the user wants/needs. For you, I agree being able to play at 120 frames per second is a pro.

    The Blade is thinner by a few millimeters, but the X7 DT v6 (dude that name though...I can never remember MSI or Aorus laptops due to the naming scheme) is lighter. I think the Blade wins on design and keyboard though. I have never been a fan of Aorus' fat vent grills. The Core is a big plus for some people because one day the 1080 will be outdated.

    All in all, price per performance wise, the Aorus clearly wins. I think that's actually true whenever the Blade is compared to any competitor. But when you take style, aesthetics, and design into account the decision becomes harder. For example, I'm sure if you were sporting the Blade people would approach you with compliments. With the Aorus, probably not so much. Not saying that's a critical 'feature' or anything, but just as an example.

    Either way man, someday Razer will make that hybrid gaming laptop that we talked about.
    Then you'll be back :wink_:. I'll be waiting.

    I haven't quit on Razer yet! I'm still between the Blade Pro and x7. I'm working with VR a lot and might even start streaming so I don't know. I really am struggling to choose between the Blade or x7. Man the naming system really is horrible. I think I might go with the Blade if it supports 144hz output to monitors. Otherwise x7 it is. Honestly I need a laptop right now haha. I'm basically working off an iPad. Kind of annoyed that I don't have a proper computer to do anything with.

    This is an amazing idea, I wonder if they will make a DeathStalker Mechanical now (Since they have the keys for them now).

    The only Downside of this laptop is, in my opinion Laptops seem to cost more then Desktops of the same spec, So the price of this might draw a lot of people away.

    Haha, read the posts before you! Gaming laptops are always going to be more expensive than gaming desktops. That's the price you pay for power-per-inch. Yes, anyone can build a desktop with better specs, but the point is that none of us can do it in a package this small and sexy.

    Price will always come down with time, especially if desktops eventually get phased out. Every manufacturer would then only focus on pumping out mobile parts in larger quantities, bringing prices down. Nvidia already combined their desktop and mobile lines of graphics cards though so I guess there's no price difference there?

    Bottom line is you completely miss the point of a gaming laptop if your reason against getting one is that you can build a desktop with better specs.

    Hii Razer Blade pro screen refresh rate how many? 60hz 120hz 144hz?
     
  7. Overtask

    Overtask Well-Known Member

    I would say that it is likely 60Hz since it is a 4K G-Sync display.

    Hands down "The Vanishing of Ethan Carter". The scenery is just so damn beautiful and detailed. Granted I haven't really tried too many games yet considering I don't really have a VR ready computer of my own right now.

    I would say the one I am waiting for the most is Star Trek: Bridge Crew, not sure if that is your sort of thing though.

    Overtask,

    it would be better to hear the official one..What is the Blade Pro Screen refresh rate ? 60hz 120hz 144hz

    I think it's a 70hz IGZO panel, but you need a lot of power to push a nice looking game @ 4K 60hz+
    Hey dude I actually really wanted to get into that game. I tried playing the non-VR but it's one of those games where I get nauseated super fast. I guess that means I would have even less luck with the VR version huh...

    Resident Evil VR was cool though. It was the fact that zombies were trying to rip my eyes out, not the motion, that made me feel like vomiting :stuck_out_tongue:

    Saw a post about a guy working in a shop that runs PSVR demos and they had Resident Evil VR and people were going absolutely insane, was pretty hilarious

    Though wldve been more hyped if it was the shadow(that curved screen)

    Yeah definitely! I was super calm through the entire demo because I was actually kinda ticked off at the time, but the people working there told me they had people screaming and running out of the demo booth because they couldn't handle it.

    I'll absolutely check it out once I get my computer!

    Beautiful... its understandable, but I wish the price were as beautiful as the system.

    The price is beautiful. So beautiful it hurts.

    I want one of these, I definitely want to try the layout with the trackpad on the side of the keyboard, but I'm not sure if I can justify dropping that much money on a laptop that'll last maybe 3 years before upgrading.
    Does anyone know what the specs are at the price of $3600/$3700, whichever it was? I'm hoping that's the price for the highest spec system.

    Hybrid, as in something like a Yoga laptop, or a Surface? I'd prefer a Surface clone. Though, that might bring back the Edge Pro, and it'd probably turn into a Nintendo Switch clone if it had a docking station, even tho the Switch is more of an Edge clone. Though, for a Surface clone, my idea for it is offering a second keyboard but with more batteries/storage/maybe sli/docking; all through a thunderbolt port or two.

    I've seen a picture on some review of the new Blade Pro, and the motherboard looks fairly uncluttered, unless there's a ton of components on the underside. I don't see why they couldn't offer the same spec potential in other form factors, as 17" is quite large, but I guess that's due to them being the thinnest laptops.

    Does anyone know if the trackpad is standard or a high precision one? I know high precision seems to be the latest hype in the world of trackpads.

    The only other thing I want to see is something like Apple has done with their new laptops, with the touch bar thing. I haven't read much on it, but if it's something that can get rid of having a dedicated function key, and adds additional functions, it seems great. Oh and the bar having emojis gives me hope that it can save other characters; like there's symbols in math that I have to copy and paste, or characters in other languages that I also have to copy and paste, if it can replace copy and paste for multiple characters for me then it'd save a lot of time whenever I'm typing out math or typing in another language. I hope the touchbar thing isn't gimmicky and more people incorporate it into future laptops. I know I'll get hate from windows fanboys, but it's an idea that would speed up certain things I do from time to time.
