Correct on the build quality, and i should have said, it looks like it has premium build quality from various hands on videos i have watched. and to be honest in the laptop world it basically boils down to plastic or aluminum. From my personal experience i have never used a plastic laptop that had better quality then the aluminum ones i have used. If it is anything close to the chasis of a macbook pro, then exect premium build quality. I think the price is high, thats obvious, but you get what you pay for, and in this case, thats a premium laptop. If the reviews come back positive about the build quality, standard battery usage. and has good temps as they claim to have, then without a doubt it is worth the price. i have looked at benchmarks of the gtx 765m and the haswell mobile i7 on notebook check and they were tested on 1080p and every thing on high/ultra, were mostly above 60 fps, except for crysis and bf3 and demanding games like that, but they were still 40-50 on high settings, and factor in the lower res vs the 1080 wich should boost up the fps by a good margin, at this size and and all of the above, and i did see the power brick, its not a brick its about as small as a iphone 5 and a little thicker, in the market of premium built laptops(wich imo belongs to apple) this is a answer to the sub par built gaming laptop market. I know many pc gamers who would pay for a macbook due to the build quality, but it just does not have what it takes to game, so they revert back to saying apple is junk. This will be a great laptop for the price. Im honestly happy, we as pc gamers who do have the money or are willing to pay only have the option to buy bulky gaming laptops, i have owned the sager np8150 to the asus g73, also a gateway fx back in the day, and to me, this is what its about.
and about the screen, razers response to the whole why is it not 1080? their is no 14" non touch 1080 display for laptops on the market, plenty of touch glossy, but no matte 14" non touch wich is their trait for the 17"
