    Razer tried to make a cost down version of the Blade, but how much did they sacrifice in making it cheaper?

    i'm really dissapointed that dell makes gaming laptops for 600-800 dollars but somehow razer and these others think its "normal" to charge 2-3k for a similar device.

    Update: I got my blade 2 weeks ago today and it is AMAZING. Of course the PC enthusiast will have a differing opinion to those who don’t have access to state of the art hardware. But for your average joe who needs a laptop to use for work or the occasional gaming session, this laptop can run games at ultra (or very high) and easily hit its 60 FPS cap. It makes for a very pleasant Fortnite experience whenever I’m done with my schoolwork. I would recommend it to anyone who has 1600 dollars to spend on a laptop.

    Got the 4K advanced, and had the 2017 model as well. Both are loud laptops. Lots of power throttling with the new one. Screen alone was worth it though. Base model could be a good deal for design students, who are often nudged towards buying much more expensive MacBook Pro's, and then hate them.

    I have been watching your videos for a long time. I have Razer blade 14inch (2018) first week it had flickering problem and I sent to be fixed. After a months I received it back but 60 days after it started doing it again. Razer costumer service agrees some of blade 14 inch model are faulty and have flickering problem (mostly with touch screen) but instead of changing it with new one they offer me to repair it again. You haven’t mentioned any problem like this in your blade laptop videos so I believe you should update them and talk about it. Many people like me review videos like yours and decide to buy blade product... but Razer doesn’t stand behind his product at all. Selling faulty product ( specially they know they are faulty) is just like stilling money of people... I know I will not get any answers for this msg but please note that many people like me are out there waiting their 2300 dollars laptop to be change......

    I really don't think Razor products are that good. Even if they are they aren't priced reasonably because all of this gamer crap has to be priced way higher for the sake of being called gamer. Usually the only people I see use razor products are ones who haven't used other products yet, and don't have enough experience. I always cringe when people tell me their headphones are good.

    I would have compared it with the GIGABYTE Aero 15X. $1800-1900 laptop with a GTX 1070 Max-Q, 144hz FHD IPS, 512 SSD, i7 8750H and 16gb DDR4 RAM just to ridicule it a bit more.

    companies do this a lot, for example corsair k70 used to be metal and then I think they changed it to all plastic, my cable broke and they don't sell a new cable, so I will have to repair the cable. they would get away with it if not for youtubers, apple are also notorious for this.
