    Hey everyone my blade should be arriving tomorrow and I was wondering if anyone new how to get improved battery life. Of course when gaming the battery will be horrible but I would like to know how to get much more than the 4 and a half hours that people appear to be getting when im only using the blade for working in word or surfing the web.

    That's great news! The lack of DisplayPort was pushing me to the Ghost Pro / P35W v2, thinking I couldn't get high res output to an external screen.

    Does anyone else that has the Blade notice their keyboard backlight sometime turn off and then back on every now and then during use? Wonder if it's just me.

    Has anyone installed a separate SSD into the Razer Blade? I want a large SSD, but I don't want to pay Razer's insane price jump of $500 going from 128GB to 512GB. Any recommendations on a SSD?

    I just noticed that Windows is smarter than I thought. When you change your power settings to "Power Saving", Windows shuts down dGPU and runs on iGPU automatically. And turns dGPU on when you put it back on "Balanced". Can anyone confirm too? That EASILY gave me 1 hour extra battery life. (Brightness MAX, keyboard light mid, volume at 50)

    Had this problem a few times. Since disabling the auto-shutoff time feature in Synapse, it has never happened again.

    That's interesting. I assumed that the computer had Nvidia Optimus technology to do the switching based on what was needed automatically, like last year's model was, is that not the case?
