    Excellent! Hopefully that means that Microsoft will have them soon too and I can swap out for a new one.

    Could someone quickly tell me the pros and cons of Touch Gloss screen vs Matte non-touch... I'm inclined to go with the non-touch but I just want to be sure I'm not missing something that I don't already know about the touch experience in conjunction with Windows 10.

    I have a 2015 Blade QHD and have literally never touched the screen once. In fact, I have it disabled. It's useless if you ask me. Also, the resolution is nice for movies but useless for gaming. I can only game at 1080p. That combined with the fact that there are still Windows apps which aren't HiDpi compliant is why I went FHD this time

    Thanks Mario! that's what I needed to hear, I assumed as much but thought it would be best I ask just in case because since apple released their touchbar I started wondering if there is this wave of touch that I'm perhaps missing out on and should consider, lol. But guess not moving right along :)

    So you're going to attempt to repaste it? Good luck and please get good information to compare stock vs your repaste as it seems to be hit or miss attempting to repaste.

    If you repaste, use a HDT-specialized paste. Assuming they're still doing direct pipe contact (which is really ****ty, imo), of course.

    Good to know, thank you for the heads up. I may not do a repaste for now, as the temperatures seems to be okay. I've managed to play GTA V for a few hours and the fans have stayed in the mid-40 decibels range, much better fan noise control compared to my 2015 FHD model.

    I canceled my order through Razer and went through amazon so I should have my blade on nov 4th. I went with FHD as I have the QHD Blade now. FHD will be the overall better experience.

    Repasting has generally turned out quite poorly for those who have tried it on Razer Blades. There was a pretty infamous one sometime in 2014 that even the CEO of Razer chimed in on. I wouldn't recommend it, as you are definitely blowing your warranty if you do so...
