Will Razer unleash such a Beast?

Should Razer make a desktop grade gaming Laptop?

  1. Meh. They have Razer Core so why the fuss.

    Recently i came across a company in Malaysia who does custom Gaming Laptop.

    Looking at the spec which includes desktop grade i7-6700 and desktop grade GPU GTX980:eek_:, i was totally blown away (and drooling at the same time). However, i'm hesitant to invest around USD2500 on that Beast due to one reason: How reliable is the company?

    As i'm not sure if i'm allowed to post the direct link of another company, therefore i shall provide only the link from a forum.

    I'm hoping Razer will create such a Beast in the near future and it will definitely be on my shopping list as i can 100% believe in Razer's quality.

    Some of you may argue that Razer is making the Core but imagine being able to bring that "Desktop" around with you...phew!!:big_grin_::rolleyes:

    I want something in between the size, price, and performance of the Razer Blade Stealth and the Razer Blade 14, like with a GTX 950m or something...

    I still think it's better to invest in a good desktop and have a medium spec laptop to bring round. You'll have a much better experience playing at home, which is where you will hopefully be usually.

    It is definitely better to play on a desktop compared to laptop but many do bring their gaming laptops to their friend's home to have multiplayer via LAN.

    Or when you are on a long vacation, just link up the laptop with the hotel TV and there you go: "a desktop with TV as a monitor".

    I have been using AW17(needs replacement soon) for couple of years and i have a powerful PC at home..there are times when i wish i can bring my desktop around.

    I'm sure that laptop with those desktop components weighs a good 10 pounds minimum.

    You are right. It weighs slightly above 10lbs but the AW M17xR4 that i'm using weighs around the same but it aint desktop grade spec.

    Yah, that's why i suggested a mid range laptop that'll run things decent so you can occasionally bring out to lan / school / work, or even on vacation. I doubt you'd want to bring a brick on vacation anyway haha

    I highly doubt Razer would release anything like it. The Blade line has always existed to push boundaries. Anyone can design a thick and heavy gaming laptop that has tons of power. Razer made the Blade line to generate laptops that boast the most power per cubic inch allowed by the laws of thermodynamics and physics.

    I can see people buying a ultra powerful laptop like this. I notice a lot of people now a days just own laptops and do everything on them. It may be big and bulky but If you got a big backpack and can live with the size and weight why not. I've seen some students on campus with big laptops in the libraries and cafeteria already so its not so much of a stretch.

    That's true, a laptop with desktop properties would weigh that amount for sure.

    My 4 yrs old AW weighs around the same weight and it is definitely way underperform if you want to stick to VikaSG's criteria.

    Lol it means that i'm one of those that carry heavy laptop around. Would be great if Razer produces such laptop variant as i'm looking for a new gaming laptop this year.

    It is true anyone can design a thick and powerful gaming laptop but aint all are reliable. If Razer ever create a new line of beastly laptop i'm pretty sure there will be market.

    It is going to need a big battery to power that beast. It will probably drain the juice in no time. Remember laptop gaming should be portable and not plugged in unless you are charging.

    Yeah , even my Razer Blade Pro 17" gets really hot when it isn't plugged in , don't think this idea would be feasible at all .

    Not plugged in unless you are charging? Who defined laptop gaming as such? I view laptop gaming as having one machine to perform all my needs. Enough battery life to power through school, then enough performance to plug in at home and play games. That and the ability to easily transport it to other locations to play games. Being able to play games when not charging is not important to me at all.

    they don't really need to make a desktop grade laptop but razer should defiantly develop the razer core and make it more compatible with GPUs and computers

    My laptop is always plugged in when i'm gaming as i need my CPU running at normal/max capacity and without worrying it runs out of juice halfway thru.
     
  20. I dont think Razer would want to build a laptop that thick, they always have built some of the thinnest gaming laptops. To have a desktop gpu with proper cooling they would have to give up their slim design. I would prefer they have a desktop processor in the laptop and then have the core but there is always people would rather have an all in one system.
