    Very nice review. It should be noted that you can actually upgrade the RAM, wireless, mSATA if you aren't worried about your warranty. There is actually a port on the motherboard and a bay to install a SSD but as far as I know nobody tried installing one yet because we need to find the correct cable.

    I have opened my system up there are no seals or markers to show the system has been opened as far as I can tell you just need a mini T6 screwdriver.

    Nice review; and a very nice unit, too, but not terribly exciting. . . . Terribly exciting will be that oncoming day, which I am sure is rapidly arriving, where it will match or exceed alienware's thickest and best. On this day, I will become an owner. :notworthy:

    It's a well built laptop but too expensive still. Specially when you consider other gaming alternatives at less price performing much faster at gaming.

    Maybe at 2k flat it would make sense, as you would trade off the performance for mobility. But right now it's not only trading performance for mobility, but also paying 20 or more % for less performance, for the sake of being thin.

    Great review. Maybe Im wrong but it seems that Notebookreview is getting a lot more agressive with new reviews. Very good.

    (Now all that needs to be done is changing the layout, graphics and the whole theme on this site. Not the best, atleast not for the articles and the overview)). Then we are good to go. :)

    That's like comparing your MSI laptop to a desktop with 780..... your not only paying more but you get less performance.....

    I actually get what your saying, I am just soo sick of people saying its too much bla bla bla... There is nothing else on the Market that competes with it, until there is "MSI GS60 incoming" it's not overpriced.....

    It's like comparing a 14 inch laptop to a 14 inch ultra-book and claim it's overpriced.

    The hardest thing to get used to with the Razer Blade Pro (other than the price tag) is the location of the touchpad. The customizable interface is AWESOME for gaming but I kept moving my hand to the spot below the keyboard where the touchpad is "supposed" to be rather than the spot where the number pad usually resides.

    Other than that, I'm looking forward to Razer's continued presence in the gaming notebook market. It's nice to have more choices that aren't bulky, boxy monsters.

    So, a laptop that's less than one inch thick in which almost every component is easy to replace, the chassis is reinforced enough to survive drops, and the cooling is adequate to run an -xm CPU at 5ghz and the flagship mobile GPUs of three years after its purchase, all for the reasonable price of whatever?

    Alienware and Razer target different people, and neither company will succeed in the other's niche.
