All you are paying for is the fancy touchpad IMO. This is why I bought an IdeaPad for $800 with higher specs, gonna eventually drop in a faster GPU and boom!

Edit: they are only giving you the dual core i7?

You can get the fancy touchpad and 10 keys on the new SWTOR keyboard. Its 250. So even at retail price only $100 of that almost 4k is for the fancy touchpad. Which would get annoying. Id rather keys 1-6 be lit up with the pictures, not ones I cant reach/ have to leave main gaming space to press.

What's the bet they won't allow us to mod it either.

Who needs real women when you have a forum full of dudes with attractive chicks as avatars?

Fail.







There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

I wonder if it randomly stops functioning as a laptop, the same as my lycosa randomly stops functioning as a keyboard.

Ok, assuming that you are playing LoL or whatever you're going to need a mouse... Now how on earth are you going to be able to comfortably reach those LCD keys with your left hand???

That is my main problem with the Razer Blade.

Things I've blown up:
- 1x Gigabyte HD 5670
- 2x Generic PSU

I guess they never thought this laptop through. Maybe one of those Razer guys were like sitting at a desk one day like a round table with his co-workers at lunch and had a great idea: "Lets make a laptop that can have pictures on the keys and make it DO STUFF!" tongue.gif

Streaming is nice...

The only logical explanation is that it's a halo product (think, Ford GT40, Lexus LF-A). Nobody's going to buy it, but hey, it's expensive and looks riced out so Razer must be a good brand. Of course, it even fails as a halo product because the main criteria for gaming laptop isn't HP Pavilion performance with an LCD numpad and green backlit keyboard in a stolen Macbook Pro chassis powder-coated in a flat black.
