    .... you need help if you think Razer makes good laptops.

    Where did I say that Razer made good laptops?

    Can you stop mincing words and just give your opinion on the Aero's thermals please.

    I looked at the Blade 14 also but decided that the I would rather have the longer battery life than the thunderbolt port at a lower cost. Even if it turns out that the SSD in the Aero 14 is not the fastest NVMe, I can live with that and use the leftover to get an external 1TB SSD. As to a direct comparison, The Blase 14 is closer to the Aorus X3.

    Actually, if weight is not a big concern for you. I would look at the P35X V6 at the same price of a Blade 14. For 1lb more, you get the GTX-1070 with a 512GB SSD and a 1TB SATA drive.

    So I am still going to wait a few days to see if NewEgg gets it in stock. But it seems that @GenTechPC has them for sale as of yesterday. No mention if they are in stock or they are pre-selling them like XoticPC is doing. But at least they show you 3 skus with the color options.

    Just had a chat with xoticpc.Doesn't look like it will be in by Weds. 1st shipment are typical by airfreight and they should have gotten the air waybill info by now if Gigabyte did ship over the weekend. I'm going to hold off till they have physical stock as I have a trip coming up on the 21st since I need to get it with enough time to set it up before or I'll just order after I get back.

    I downgraded from a p34w to an w230sd with 960m. The difference was night and day. 60% difference fire strike score. The 1070 is 50% between the 1060. But the performance gap is still far greater than the 960m and 970m.
    Saying that I've just got my brother a w350ss with 860m and it's still solid especially as he came from a Radeon 2600m from 2007. But he's not a pc gamer...yet.

    Did your w230sd come with the 1080 or the 4k screen. My came with the 4k screen and it looks awful. I got my used but I didnt have a choice. The tears in the screen look painful and battery life is not what I expected.

    Just chatted with xotic pc and was told that they are expecting to ship the new Aero 14 out next week. No promise on that though and I was advised to get something else if I want a laptop by a specific date.
