Razer Blade Stealth UHD 256GB ($1,979.95), 512GB ($2,229.95) models with 6th Gen i7

60

Looks like with the 7th Gen Intel CPU's coming out some manufacturers are discounting 6th Gen i7 CPU based PC/laptop stock.

I've been looking at getting the updated Razer Blade Stealth but just noticed that the existing model is discounted by 8-9%.

256GB Model: $2,149.95 > $1,979.95
512GB Model: $2,449.95 > $2,229.95

    Well that's a stupid amount of RAM.

    New laptops will come with desktop level GPUs. For this you will need to buy core for gaming or GPU heavy stuff.

      The stealth is their ultrabook model. Intel iris is the only GPU you can get in these babies. The 2017 model only upgrades to kaby lake and 16gb RAM option. Razer has always intended for this line of machines to use a Core for proper GPU gaming.
      You're thinking of the Razerblade, not the Razerblade Stealth. I mean, how could you confuse two similarly named, sized and spec'ed products? </sarcasm>
      There's only so many Razor based puns the marketing department could come up with I guess.

        Sidenote, how the hell does Apple avoid this confusion. They do the same thing, Macbook, Macbook Air, Macbook Pro.

        People seem to constantly confuse the Surface Pros and non-Pros too.

          Visual distinction, better marketing. I just Googled images for Microsoft Surface and Microsoft Surface Pro, they look identical.

    why are people comparing laptops to desktop gamin machines …… there must be a reason that my sons rx470 has 2 huge fans ….. heat …… and although called gaming laptops these machines come with mobile versions of CPUs
    and GPUs….. so per $ are not going to deliver the same performance as a desktop ….. manufacturers are good at marketing with numbers like i5 and i7 and 6th gen, 7th gen , GTX 970 etc until you read the spec of the mobile versions.

    great if you need a high power portable laptop, possibly not the best money spent if you don't need the portability but want performance.

      Why do mum and dads love using ellipsis so much?

      Whilst that's true for the 9 series of mobile GPUs, the nVidia 10 series actually does represent similar performance to desktops (within 10%). Yes, heat is an issue, but not one that can't be overcome in a laptop. Check out reviews and you'll find there are plenty of models with 1070 GPUs that don't throttle due to heat.

    Hey guys. Looks like you can get the 512gb model for $1943.48 delivered from amazon. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01CA0JIZ0 (this includes an import fee deposit)

    Not sure how this goes with warranty etc. But its worth a look

    Well.. I am not even sure if you'd want to call it "Gaming" laptop given it is only running the Dual Core i7-6500's in here for better heat management. The older Razers were literally aluminum heatsinks on your lap with inadequate cooling.
