Good, keep it that way.

Why? They do make great mice. The fit of a mouse is something for the individual, but I love my Razer!

I thought they made good wares, until I tried them :/ Mice are ok, but nothing spectacular, keyboards are also ok, but quite overpriced (except for the Razer Blackwidow, which seems to be cheap. Lots of known problems though). Headset is forgettable, and their speakers fails against similarly priced products. All in all, average goods with expensive price tags. I want to like them because they do quite a bit to support esports, but the lack of quality makes me hesitant.

I don't really see how they can claim..... "First True Gaming Laptop".... Sager has been pumping out good systems for years...

For that price you can get a Sager with a Desktop chip in it and Xfire or SLI. No they won't be comparable in battery life but hell..... I thought gaming laptop and battery life were an oxymoron.

I love my Sager even though I get about 45 mins on the battery.... a hour on a good day. That is not why I got it, it compliments my desktop really well and being a year old.... I bet it whoops that system's ass and I paid about half as much for mine.

Still using a Dell Inspiron XPS Gen 1 with Win 7 on it now, Interesting enough my Monitor supports 1920x1200 on it, Gaming on it i keep at 1280x800

I don't think this can be said enough. Way to kill PC gaming Razer! Good job.


Yes sir, Bruce, Angry Dog is angry at Razer.

Razer laptop is better than that one.

Wrong, the GTX460M performs significantly better than that GT555m, notebookcheck reports 42% faster. The asus is also much much cheaper and has the SB CPU 2630 while the razer has 2640 there is not much difference there for gaming. Also the Asus one can support OC's on their dedicated GPU as their base design can support alot of heat whereas the razer laptop looks like it will melt with a mere 5mhz oc :laugh:. I pity anyone who thinks this laptop is better than other manufacturer's offerings especially the significantly cheaper Asus G73.

Thanks Random, that's an awesome site indeed for notebook GPUs

@ dir_d

http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-460M.33612.0.html

click all the compare links to the side of the games about halfway down the page next the the high spec and ultra spec. you'll see quite a difference in performance. i think most were about a 30% diff. quite a bit in some games. the 4XXm series vs 5XXm series is kinda like AMD's HD5XXX series vs their HD6XXX series, the prior being more powerful.

Razer. Your accessories, being that pricey, is ok for me. But this. Big turn off.

Im beginning to doubt Razer's motto of 'by gamers for gamers' (or was that interplay's?). In anycase, PC gamers dont care if they are carying an ugly brick in their back as long as it has the horsepower.. this ones more like targetted for the Mac fruits.

Id be glad to, going to pay for my moving costs and get me a job?

The point is we get screwed over in this country with prices even though our dollar is worth more then the USA :shadedshu

Not my problem. You live in that country, so you can move elsewhere on your own. You have 2 arms and 2 legs, don't ya? I assume you're capable of something since at least you can post on a forum? If you're not lazy, and that' s a big IF, you can always find a way to leave your country.

You obviously missed the point here, ill say it again > The point is we get screwed over in this country with prices even though our dollar is worth more then the USA :shadedshu

This has nothing to do with if im lazy or anything like that.

Further more how the heck would you know how much it costs over here? do you live here? Fact is it cost 3 TIMES as much for just about everything living cost wise here then the US.
So if you think its "that easy" think again.

Stop making this personal. :shadedshu
