Seriously though that snake logo is not worth that much and I don't know that I've ever heard razer and the words high-quality used together.
oh, so your laptop that is twice as thick, two inches wider, and two pounds heavier would probably compete for significantly less, amazing, however could it pull that off
the reason Razer laptops cost so much is the same reason Apple laptops cost so much: its all in the industrial design
while Razer deserved all the criticism in the world when they announced the first Blade with hardware that was soon to be outdated and a HDD instead of a SSD for $2500, they've clearly been learning since then. Really the only thing wrong with this model is the screen is sub par for the $1799 starting cost. And when we compare it with the closest Apple MacBook Pro, it actually looks like a bargain: http://store.apple.com/us/configure/MD103LL/A

Sure, a Haswell i7 and a GTX765M is pretty formidable, but that's about half the power I'd want to run 1080p for most of my games, but 1600x900 is pretty much right in that Goldilocks zone for that hardware.

IPS sure, 1080p no, and while a touch screen would be fun it really wouldn't be worth the cost in a laptop we're looking to orient towards mobile PC gaming. But yeah, 1080p is pushing it, the extra resolution does us no good if we have to scale it down to get acceptable frames. This is a small and lightweight laptop
, not a desktop replacement. Although TN and 120Hz would have been even better, but I would agree that for the asking price it should have been better than a 60Hz TN panel. And 1200-1300 is a dream; there's no way you'll find anything close to that level of hardware spec in that small a form for anything less than 1500, at least not without it being a plastic piece of junk.
