    To those awaiting their new laptops and possible battery wear problems. When I got my second battery it came with 2% wear out the box. Without plugging it in I let it run down to about 5% charge and turned it off. Recharged to full without turning on. Battery shows no wear and Ive had it for about 2 months.
    Lithium ion powererd cosumables such as electric toothbrushes and shavers that Ive had sometimes come with instructions saying they need a 16h charge before using for the first time. Maybe the AW13 battery needs similiar treatment.
    May work, may not, but just a thought.

    You can get 6.5hrs "normal browsing" on the IPS version. But others report wildly different results from what I get especially those with the OLED. The 1.0.5 version seems to have had no impact in my system, I suspect the update may have been geared towards the kabylakes but IDK

    I have a 1tb toshiba ssd as well but the write is just shy of 1100 so your numbers seem off.

    I'm holding back from buying the OLED version because of the PWM, which has a very low frequency (240hz according to notebookcheck.net)

    Does anyone know what is the model number of the FullHD display? Is it the same as R2?

    I got the 2017 Razer Blade, much improvement of the 2016 blade.

    Are fans still noisy on idle? Does the new KabyLake chip run cooler or maybe new bios make the fans quieter during lighter tasks? The only reason why I returned my Skylake Razer Blade for an Alienware 13 R3 was due to the fan noise

    the fans come on once and a while on idle but for the most part they stay off. Its a little cooler and quieter than the skyblade.
