    Has anyone who ordered the new RBS ($999) on or after the 27th of September received their laptops? I ordered the Core w/ the laptop and I got an email that said the laptop was backordered, customer service (I called before the email came in) told me it would ship last week. I'm pretty confused about what's going on.

    I ordered a 512GB QHD on Oct 2nd. With the core. My order still has the core in red, and nothing for the Stealth. I was told it would ship after October 12th in E-mail. Not sure what I should think about that. There is a LOT of time after October 12th. Perhaps with all of the issues they should just take their time and make sure they are all right.

    There's gonna be a presentation in Germany October, 20th. I believe something will be revealed on that regard.

    If only... My opinion? Only promises, they promised so many times, that they already lost my trust in Razer. I'm just asking, because of beeing curious how deep can they go. But anyway THX for reply, I'll wait till 20th and check everywhere I can to find out.

    Now they're telling me it's backordered to October 28th. That's a month after the estimated ship date provided when I ordered the laptop. Is this normal for Razer? I'm pretty disappointed in how all this is was handled. I bought a 1070 FTW to use with the Core so I don't want to cancel but this is ridiculous.

    Do not worry, RBS is not THAT good. It is hard for me to estimate whether I regret buying it but there are some alternatives out there worth to consider.

    They are not even available for purchase at this point. They all show up with "Notify Me" so I would guess people like you and I are in for a long ride. I am settling in that I won't get mine until Thanksgiving or so, which for me is fine as long as they address all their issues.

    I was doing this as a whim to replace a desktop that I don't do any top tier gaming on, and an old Lenovo Yoga that I used for traveling with. So, I am not in a rush for this. But I understand that many people are in a bind. I know I was personally down to the XPS 13, and the Lenovo X1 Carbon, both of which I have at work. I just thought the novelty of the Core was cool.

    I wish they'd just ship me the laptop as I need it for school. At this rate the semester will end before I get it.

    I ordered my Stealth back on Sep 22nd and the Core just a few days later on Sep 28th. The Stealth was delivered about a week later and the Core was on back order, first until Oct 14th, then changed to Oct 28. I just got email notification yesterday however saying my Core had shipped. I had a FedEx slip on my door so I'm guessing they tried to deliver it yesterday.

    Sigh. I ordered on October 2nd, I ordered the combo order on line. I can't even get support to reply to me that they might have a concept of how many weeks or months away it is. I just want them to fix the issues they are having before sending me the laptop though. I am more bummed than upset though. The excitement is beginning to fade for me, which is probably a bad thing.

    That sucks. I haven't had any issues with my Stealth. It runs great. I got a skin for it and put it on last night:

    Pretty easy to put on and looks good. I just hope removing it is not going to be a pain

    You didn't order too long after me so maybe you are coming up in the queue. They have been bad about sending shipping updates in a timely matter. I got the email yesterday that the Core had shipped and it was ready for delivery yesterday. My Stealth was also the same way. I go the shipping notification and then it was delivered the next day or two after.

    I have the dBrand Matt Black skin (no logo cutout) sitting at home waiting.

    I would expect them to charge my card. I am not even watching for the shipping information. I am just watching to see if my credit card is charged.

    My card for the Core didn't get charged until after I got the shipping email. I got the email notification then checked my bank account and nothing all morning until yesterday evening ish. A bit surprising.

    Well, Amazon now shows available October 24th. So that is an update. Maybe I will get mine this week.... Still would like to have seen something from Support on this, but they seem just as unsure as we do. :D
     
  17. Will this one run VR (using the Core with an acceptable GPU) or is the processor too weak for that?
