  1. Razer has refreshed its popular Blade gaming laptop for 2015 and by all indications, this iteration could very well be the system to beat if gaming on a super thin system is your thing.

    Who games on less than a 15" screen though? 15.6" is the minimum I would get on a gaming laptop. I prefer 24" monitors on a desktop.

    That HDMI 1.4a connector makes me sad. Sure it supports outputing at the native resolution, but only at 30fps. HDMI 2.0 and/or mini DP would have been a better offering I'd imagine, but that's just me griping what is likely a moot issue for whoever might actually buy this laptop.

    meh for the price youd kind of expect to be able to output at 60 FPS even if you only did it twice a year.

    Everytime I see Star Citizen mentioned/pictured my jimmies get rustled a little. Can't wait.

    If you click on the link right next to the price, you can double check unless you wanted to make the remark anyhow.

    Also, "starting at" means the 128 gb, every system has the same video card, proc and ram, the drive is all that changes.

    Nope. I'm not interested in the device.

    Cannot understand why HDMI 2.0 wouldn't be available for it. Bleeding edge laptop, great screen, poor display output options. Doesn't make sense?
