Enter here for a chance to win a custom MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries themed PC powered by Intel!
I have had a Razer Naga (mouse) and Razer Anansi (keyboard) for over 2.5 years and are still going on strong.Hopefully it's better than their other products, especially at this price. My experience with them has been unreliable at best over the long run. I have quit buying Razer products after I couldn't keep a mouse of theirs working for more than 6 months.
Actually if you have a look at the "laptop" panter E5D you'll see than a laptop can actually dissipate much more than that. The panter propose 2 780 and an Xeon E5V2 if I recall well the specThat's a 100w gpu. Can a 14 inch laptop dissipate ~135W ?
1) Gsync currently bumps costs of any desktop screen by at least $200, as we've seen.2) I agree, overpriced3) I wouldn't whine just because it's Kepler. I doubt that GTX 870M will be weaker than any cards beneath it.4) 14'' screen is actually perfect, though I personally prefer 15.6''. The machine is highly portable and at home you hook it up to external screen of your preferred size. But they'll have a 17'' version of it too soon, they always do.I'm surprised by how hateful TH readers are of Razer. Previous Blade got blamed for mediocre GPU, now the current one is blamed for older arch + maybe not being able to cool it. Previous Blade 14 got blamed for HD+ resolution, now QHD+ is "too much" for you. (Though I gotta agree here, I'd rather have a smaller price and just a good IPS FHD) I mean... you folks will ALWAYS find SOMETHING to whine about. I'm following Razer CEO on Facebook and he's spot-on about "haters", that's what most of you are, for no reason at all. Nobody asks you to buy Blade and it's not a threat to Windows ecosystem - it's just a premium product for people willing to pay extra cash for portability, brand name etc.No Gsync? $200 extra for 256gb SSD? Kepler? small 14" screen? I guess they don't want my money yet.
Totally agree. You are wasting money purchasing this. The Clevo w230st is a much better value for what you get with a 1080p screen and a 765m. Even at that resolution, the video card can only pump out medium detail with minimal AA and AF. 1600x900 seems to be the sweet spot for native resolution and gaming with high detail. My ideal laptop would be a 14 inch laptop with at most a 1080p(would actually prefer the 900p screen at 14 inches though) screen and one of these new Maxwell 860m chips for efficient battery usage. Include a Haswell with an Iris Pro for lower power gaming and gaming on battery. Something like this at around $1000-1200 price point of the w230st would be the sweet spot for me.3200x1800? pointless... that 780m can't drive that screen ~ i hope the people suckered into buying that laptop like playing games at 10fps... cause that's all you'll get out of the 780m in that resolution.I suppose they could turn down the resolution and game in 1600x900... but then you have to ask, "why are you paying $3200 for a "gaming" laptop with hardware it can't even useThis is endemic in the computer industry. Plenty of products with mismatched hardware just to throw out big numbers and flashy names, even if those products can't work together as well as a more modest build. 14" screen is bad enough... throw in the insane resolution, the under powered hardware for it, and the insane cost and you're looking at a marketing gimmick, not a gaming laptop.
