    Don't know if anyone saw, but Razer just updated their site with the new units.

    Well, my Blade was delivered this morning. I got a little case of buyer's remorse after ordering last Thursday, and I figured I would find some excuse to return it. Not a chance. This is, without a doubt, the best gaming laptop I have ever owned, and I've gone through quite a few. The 2070MQ 144hz 512 was on sale for $2,399, and I got a 5% student discount and extended 3 year Razer care, total was $2,682 after tax.

    After a few hours, I can't find a single flaw. No screen bleed, perfect panel, co coil whine, 15,551 firestrike stock with max temps of 79 CPU and 71 GPU. I am super pumped about spending at least 3 years with this baby. Well done, Razer, far exceeded expectations on day 1, I hope I remain this impressed in the days to come!

    Just wait till you give it a slight undervolt. ;)

    I just got a Firestrike score of 16,135 in gaming mode with -130 uv. Max CPU temp 83C.

    Incredible

    I'm in the same boat as you. I'm so happy with my 2070MQ 144hz. I only went 256gb SSD as I ordered a Samsung 2TB 970 Evo Plus. I was thinking about returning mine as well since it's been a bit over a week but decided the slightly improved CPU wouldn't make a huge difference in this chassis and I don't think I'd ever hit above 144hz refresh on the go - and when I'm at home I play on a 144hz super ultrawide 49" monitor anyway.

    Hold your ponies, according my mate they’re on testing phase. Bios update is pretty sensitive and may bring other new issues if published too rush. No ETA yet but close I think.

    Still loving this system, got a 16,021 Firestrike score after UV in gaming mode, that's probably the best I'll do. Happy with all game performance, thermals, noise, build quality, etc.

    My only criticism - and maybe someone can help me with this - is the Synapse software. As far as i can tell, there is no way to store my lighting profile offline. Whenever I try to use the machine without an internet connection, it switches to the default lighting profile. Is there a way to store my setup locally?

    Does anyone here play World of Warcraft and if so can they check to see if there is any audible coil whine during gameplay?
