    Hi everyone! I've been researching laptops for about a week now and I have narrowed it down to the Hp Spectre(new 13.3) and the Razer Blade Stealth. The Razer has a chroma keyboard vs the premium gold look of the hp spectre. I want to know if I can upgrade ram on the Razer blade stealth and replace the battery in the future. Thanks everyone!

    IMHO gold looks bad.

    I don't think you can replace the battery or upgrade the RAM.
    You can upgrade storage with an SSD.

    I prefer the Razer Blade Stealth. It looks WAY MORE smexy. :) But, it's just my opinion.

    You should be able to replace the battery (not that I've tried) since that's a very standard function for laptops. As for replacing the RAM, I think Razer would've advertised that if it was possible as they did for the ability to replace the SSD.

    Here's a video of someone doing a teardown of the stealth:

    That should answer any questions you have about it.

    Both are pretty good. It comes down to what exactly you want in a laptop. I currently own a HP Omen 15 (the nice one before they went all plastic-y) and I can say with exception of some issues at the start involving getting items as part of a promotion (Never got my mouse :frown_: ) the support otherwise has been decent, there's regular driver updates on the site still and it's performed quite well. Problems have been Beats Audio (N/A for you) and problems with the Intel Graphics when it decides to swap between it and the dedicated graphics whilst an external monitor is plugged in (also N/A for you)....

    Otherwise both have a USB-C so they can support peripherals, the Spectre is a slightly thinner and lighter I believe, and ultimately the most drastic differences are the look you like and how the products feel, with the exception that I believe the Stealth has a better display.

    You should be able to play around with the HP (and possibly the Stealth depending on where you live) in store and get a feel for them :smile_:
