    There is usually a sale in january if they win an award at CES. That is usually the best time to pick something off because they usually have awesome discounts on most of their products.....but things sell out crazy fast because of the good discounts so you gotta be quick! but this is only if they win something at CES usually. But they have the last 2 years.

    I'm positive they're going to win something again.
    All they need to do is update the Blade and the Blade Pro with Kaby Lake
    (and, possibly, double the max RAM for the Pro). (-;

    Going on just math, I'd say 50/50. ;) I hope so, but I have no more money, so I won't be able to get anything. I'm hoping so for the rest of you!

    no way they are putting 64gb of ram in the pro. thats not happening for a few years at least.

    Yes, I'm expecting the Blade to get best laptop for 2017 at CES or the Blade Stealth or Blade Pro so I can buy one at a discount.

    To properly set expectations - we do not take winning for granted and celebratory events are never pre-planned. Don't count on them and be let down thereafter if we don't have one next year.

    I know. There's only places 2 modules in there,
    and 32GB modules are [virtually?] non-existent.
    That was just wishful thinking... (-;

    For all I know, even those 2 modules may be soldered... ;-)

    Tsk, tsk, Katana. That is usually the worst time to pick something off due to the servers crashing for both Insider and Razerzone.

    CES appreciation sale = opening the floodgates to hell. Not even setting macros for every key on your keyboard to F5 will save you!

    Also, in my experience the new blades usually don't go on sale. On the rare occasion that they do, they seem to have a limited quantity :frown_:

    Haha so true. you gotta be so quick or else you wont be able to get in. I usually dont pick anything up because of this...and i like supporting razer and giving them all my money for the awesome company that they are :)

    They do, but at a lower percentage. Instead of 50% off, I think it was like 15-25%. Can't remember exactly.
    Noooooo! Join us in the fun (rage) this year if they hold another CES appreciation event! Servers crash and it gets super laggy, resulting in checkout errors. Then when the lag lets up, everything is out of stock, which cues a rapid influx of rageposts here on Insider. Regardless, I've been able to get something for the past few years!

    Well, if it is based on CES Awards, Razer won Best Gaming Product for Razer Project Ariana. This is actually a pretty interesting concept but wouldn't work for my gaming rig.

    Congrats Razer. How many years running is this now?

    Also, Looks alot like Microsoft's IllumiRoom from i believe last year.
