If the boot time is a couple of hours, then sure.

Anyway I really like the looks of it. There's a 14 inch version as well that looks even better.

This is actually quite cool.

I've never seen this performance level at only 0.9" thickness.

Razer: Looks cool - looks even cooler to the guy who sold his kidney for one. It's ok, they grow back. Dont like the touch pad button change thing, it's in the wrong place to be useful, most people use their right hand for mouse, very few people would want to move either hand to make use of it. A mere gimmick to push the price up. Nice idea, poor practicality.

To be honest with those specs this is the first time I would consider the Blade a laptop for games but its still way too overpriced. There are even crossfire/sli configurations available for that much. Why wont they just drop all that gimmicky bs and just make a simple powerful laptop. I'd bet they'd sell way more of those just because of the badge.

The 14" model looks like it packs a serious punch, it has the same internals as the 17" model only on a 900p display (you really don't need 1080p on such a small form factor) and in a much more portable chassis.

Now, if they could cram the same hardware into the Edge chassis, only replacing the quad core i7 for a dual core i7, I would buy that in an instant!

If anyone else would make a slim gaming laptop rather than hulking beasts, I am sure Razer will not be able to charge such a big premium.

I actually think the 14 inch one is pretty nice. There seems to be no price on Razer's website for it though.

Looks nice, nice that they moved the mouse pad too even if i am left handed it's not in the way while typing at least.

Price WOW like most lappy's over blown price tags.

They mouses aren't overpriced, which is also the same thing I ever bought from them.
Well to me they are even more so when they only last 2-12 months before failing of the same issue.

This is not the first time I have heard this. It's interesting that my Salmosa is still working after 4 and a half years of abuse - it even survived Diablo 3 :D. It is their first gen. mouse after all - maybe their quality went down in last few years?
