    Thought it was going to be an AIO or case with that name. Just another gaming laptop.

    That "one year" warranty is liable to be challenged in court to their cost. They have responsibilities under the CRA if they want to sell in the UK and it is time that companies were up front about this and not trying to wriggle out of it.

    EDIT: And, for the best part of three grand, manufacturer support is critical. One year of no quibble support and then the possibility of an Apple-esque brick wall requiring a legal crusade if something important breaks after 13 months? No chance.

    You know what, this has a load of minor issues, and a few things that would stop me buying it (the keyboard, case design, thermals, proprietary eGPU socket [why??]) but none of that matters.

    This is the first true competitor to the Blade Stealth 13 that I've seen - and cheaper to boot at £1500ish (lets all ignore the pointless eGPU model for a bit).

    That's a good sign, as I think 13" is the perfect size for a laptop and have no desire for a bigger one - i really like my BS13, but when it eventually packs up (being Razer, and now a year old, it can't have long left ) i'll hopefully have a bit more choice than one vendor

    edit: It's interesting this wasn't put up against the BS13 actually - given that's the real competitor here, rather than the larger laptops featured in the charts. I guess it's about available data or something, but still.
