This.

My MSI 16F2 with 2670QM, 570m, 8GB HyperX 1600, 750GB SATA II, and a Bluray 6x was 1285 without Windows. Far cry from this $3000 abomination.

Sure, it's not too portable but at least it can bear more truth to being called a gaming laptop.

Yeah, they basically are just rebranded clevos, though supposedly they are tested to ensure their performance. Either way, it's not like I trust razers quality more

Yeah, it's more in the range of portable laptops that can game on the side than a dedicated gaming laptop. Not that there's anything wrong with that (my laptop fits the former description), but it's ironic that they emphasize that it is the "first" gaming laptop.

The market they're aiming this at is extremely, extremely tiny. It has to consist of people who:
1) Have a massive amount of money they could throw off a bridge, but decided to throw it on this instead.
2) Are completely clueless on anything related to computers/laptops or how much they should be even vaguely be costing. And they continue to remain clueless because of having too much money (see point 1) or just being retarded full stop.
3) Have a DESPERATE need for a laptop with an extremely small form factor and mediocre specs, so desperate that they're willing to blow ANY amount of money for it ($2800 in this case).

So realistically we're looking at the majority of buyers consisting of point 3...which is indeed an extremely small market.
Then again, Razer don't have to sell very many of these to make a killing.
I don't know why people are harping on with "wait till we see it's performance", it runs a dual-core i7 with HT and a GT555M 2gb and a 1920x1080 display. Benchmarks are already out on what that GPU can do at that resolution, look them up.

my 5165 has a quadcore in it...
post #67 of 79
wow 2800 dollars?


Look at the specs its only a dual core i7 with a GAMING GT555M


I'll pass. Sager makes much better laptops in that price range. Asus does too.


Too bad I really like Razer. But this laptop is crap for that price.

The title of the article really makes me wonder what kind of an audience these guys normally target, 2800$ for a laptop is nothing but a rip off. "gamechanger" It's not even cheap enough for parents to even consider buying for their kid, no matter how much (ignorant) teens cry for one.

The really sad thing about Razer blade is that it's no lighter than a typical 17" gaming laptop, and either the same weight or heavier than the MBP 17. As for gaming performance, they're both probably tied. Desktop 5770 is about the minimum for 1080p gaming, the laptop-equivalent is something between 6870M and 6970M (maybe roughly 560M - which is 40% faster than 555M).

The Razer guys are going to need a change of pants when they see the Lenovo Ideapad Y580: http://www.engadget.com/2012/01/08/lenovo-ideapad-laptops-CES-2012/

Ideapad Y580:
15.6", 1920x1080 resolution
Ivy Bridge i7 quad
Nvidia 660M graphics (think, 570M on roids, maybe 580M performance)
weighs under 6 pounds
$900 base price
Late April/early May release

Oh, and the aesthetics? Doesn't have a hint of "gaming laptop" to it - just like the Razer Blade. I'm clueless as to how Lenovo can undercut the Asus G53/G74 pricing with such a monster laptop, in such a small chassis.
