    I currently have a Sony Z3 laptop (256gb version of it) and a i7-3930k, GTX-680, 64gb of ram desktop

    Thinking about selling both and getting that new 17" razer blade pro laptop... Wondering if its worth it :( it def looks bad a$$ =_+

    On my laptop i do alot of programming, and on my desktop i have a double monitor setup that i do programming and game (I play Eve, Wow, and League of Legends)

    I cal probably get 2k for my desktop and around 1k for my laptop. So ill be right at the right price for the 17" 512gb blade pro

    Let's put it this way a month ago I purchased a Razer Blade R2 17 inch laptop and the only regret I have is I didn't wait a month to get the R3. This Razer blade actually replaced my much more powerful P150EM with a 7970m. So far The blade gives me a better gaming experience "660m is not as powerful but soo much more reliable than the 7970m", also is a much better laptop for being portable and doing work.

    Give the further improvements Razer has made on the R3, I really would recommend it as a purchase to anyone whom can afford it.

    Hey there;

    Well, even though I love the Blade Pro, I'm not so sure I could have it as my only machine. A few years back I decided to get a desktop replacement notebook as my only computer. That's when I bought my Asus G73JH; back then, it was awesome and amazing and sexy all rolled into one.

    Everything was good for a few months. But then, the new Radeon 6000 series was released, and new games came out... and so the honey moon was over.

    To be completely honest, I still have the G73 and before I got the Blade Pro, it was still my laptop. Heck, if it wasn't because of my technological lust for the Blade Pro, the G73 would probably still be my laptop for an extra year or two. Sure, the 5780M is old, but it is more than serviceable.

    The thing is, eventually I bought a desktop again. And I still do. Mainly because it can easily be upgraded where as notebooks usually can't be. Gaming wise, technology is gonna outgrow the 765M in the blade just as it happened with my 5780M, and you're stuck with that.

    At some point I decided I will game on my desktop, and use my laptop for programming and "serious" stuff. Yet, I wanted a decent gaming experience on the laptop for when I'm on the move.

    As long as you understand that, and have no issue with it - that is, you aren't a hardcore gamer and actually use the notebook for work related activities -, then sure, go ahead! The Blade Pro is a great machine; I can see myself still owning it two or three years down the road. You won't regret it if you buy it.

    I myself moved from the VAIO Z2 to the Razer 14 (but I think the 17 is similar) and I am overall very happy. IMO, it was a much better decision than 'upgrading' to the VAIO Pro. I do a lot of data parallel, high performance programming and so the GPU is a real nice bonus. I don't game very much, so I can't really say how long into the future the GTX 765 will be able to handle modern games, but it can more than match WOW, eve and the like.

    I think one thing that lets the Razer down is the screen. It's not even so much the screen resolution as the contrast ratio and colors. The VAIO Z screen was a lot better. I guess the sound on the Razer partially makes up for it though.

    Also, why not get the 128GB or 256GB Razer 14 and then don't sell your desktop? The performance isn't that different between the two machines and the Razer 14 would be a more natural Z successor.

    Honestly, the only reason i would switch is if i was playing more on the go and using it in a more multi role kind of laptop.

    Personally, i think its kind of overpriced for what you could get with Sager but it up to you. (8250-S)

    I would have to say, yes you are crazy. That desktop processor you have is a beast. The 680 is nothing to scoff at either. Also, it would take all of 3 minutes to add another 680, or an 880 or 980 when they release those. And with that intel silicon, you won't be hurting for a long time.

    The blade on the other hand, although amazing i am sure, is a laptop. It has a lifespan of 3 years ish. It will not be upgradeable. It will not provide the performance of the desktop. It will be portable, and if that is a priority, then get it. But why not a smaller 14 inch model, for increased portability, and keep the desktop. Thats what I am doing personally, so my money is where my mouth is so to speak.
