    i wish this was around when I got my 73VRF Stealth Pro, its great with 6gb 1060, but 8 gig 1070 would've been my pick, unless its stupid money.

    Could you share some details please?

    The battery in my 2013 Razer Blade just kicked it, so I may be in the market for a new machine...

    Cheers,

    Notable amount of motion blur, flimsy plastic bezel, fan speed problems, horrid touchpad, plus a series of duff batteries.
    Also a series of problems with MSI and the retailers changing their minds back and forth on whether or not upgrading the 2.5 SATA drive, M.2 or RAM invalidated the warranty, despite it being advertised as something one could do. It was pretty nasty to work on, as well.

    Me too. Almost all models of their laptops has absolutely horrible construction of screen hinges. They break down in a year or two, even with careful handling. Judging by the photos here is the same design. Also touchpad is incovenient. And now after installing SSD and transferring OS to it, Win 10 just can't update, only decision is OS reinstall.

    Damn that sucks... what other options exist then?

    I basically want the Razer Blade, but without Razer's crappy support. And with a battery that doesn't go to crap after like a year...

    Maybe Asus ROG series? Also I think Alienware is good, but the price...

    I've always had pretty good results from Dell lappies. Currently playing with an EVGA one, to see how I get on... so far, so good.
