Well, I'm looking to sometimes use the soundscard, other times a GPU. I use my laptop to dj part time, I am going to sell off my alienware laptops because they are getting a bit old and slower (3-5 years old)

But on a related topic. With the stealth, I see the core charges also.... Does the core also charge the 14? Or do I need to plug in the PSU also. I'm guessing since the 970m is disabled, it charges off the core.

Really on the fence on what model I want.... Would love the 17 inch, but its only got a 960!?!?.

I am leaning more to the 14 inch model, but I like the portability of the stealth.

Core charges the stealth, not the 14" unfortunately.

This whole post is exaggerated and misinformed
The two products are not directly comparable.
The alienware device runs on a proprietary port which does not have the transfer rates of thunderbolt 3

$500 just for a pretty looking dock ? No TY:D
post #185 of 226
Yes 500$ is alot for a dock, I do see that many other thunderbolt docks don't offer the same feature set. Some offer more features, some less, but they all seem to fall in the 300-1000 price range.

If Razer included a data port inside the dock, the price could be more justified to me.

Having a stealth you are pretty limited by the ssd size, even the 14 is pretty limited by the ssd size. Being a gaming laptop, and games regularly taking up 50-60gb, a 128gb ssd fills up really really fast.
with a 3tb hdd in the dock, you could put all your games on that, then move games as you want.


For me the whole reason to buy a razer blade and a core together is to be able to drop a laptop and a desktop. Bring the blade around with me, then when home, plug it into the core and have a full desktop array of hardware. Without the hdd space there is not much of a reason to do this.
*yes I know I can use a usb hdd, but the point is to have a single plug in to full desktop power.

Any one owns a core and would be willing to help? I want to pair this with a Intel skull canyon and my WC Titan. How easy do you recon it would be to drill the rear to pass the tubing.
I could pass the tubing there, drill the radiator to the back with clips so that it is horizontally positioned. The EK predator would be perfect since there is only one power cable that would need to be used.

I'm interested too as I have a 970 hybrid that I would want to use in the core.

So you'll end up spending like $2000 on a system that takes up as much desk space as a real desktop while being slower. I'll stick to my ITX builds and cheap laptops.

Not really, he already has a wc Titan (I already have a 970 hybrid)

In my post higher up I point out the advantages of the core vs laptop and desktop.

Having all my stuff on a single computer is nice.
Take computer to work or vacation, then plugging into the core at home is nice.

Sorry, I was talking about in general. It seems like a lot of expense to have a gaming system that pales in comparison to a real desktop.
