    Are they a dependable seller? From what you point out, it looks like the plastic that naturally goes over the lid when new and in other pic it looks like a custom skin.

    That's what I gather from the pics but if you gut says there is something not right, don't buy it.

    Theres a screen protector on the screen, the default plastic wrap on the lid, and a dbrand skin on the interior. Either they are covering up damage, or they have taken the best care of this device ever.

    The giveaway factor would be the keyboard, ask them for a clip of the keyboard in wave mode, if they cant do it, its fake.

    Also thats not a querty keyboard, if anyone knows what language its for, it would be helpfull.

    It’s Blade Stealth 12,5 with skin overall so it won’t be same as pictures in website, so if he said “new”, it should come with Kabylake and bigger battery than Skylake 2016 one, and like @Lafar said Azerty Keyboard, seems it’s bought from Razer EU French Store.

    Ask him for a serial or receipt and verify it with Razer customer support.

    Be aware that this is the STEALTH version, it has no dedicated GPU, it has just a dual core i7.

    It's real, but as mentioned earlier it has dbrand skin + french AZERTY keyboard. If you have ability - I'd go to sellers place, and see it / test it before buy.

    Its not Dbrand. I have Dbrand on my RBS and that's not offered on that particular laptop. Only part inside the laptop is a skin piece for the track pad and nothing outside of that.

    With that being said, I noticed some wear-n-tear on the track pad skin itself. So @DIAMONDVegasGoldrush578 there might be a good chance this is used and the seller left the plastic pieces in tact. and as @TheGurgeMan said, they might be covering up some damage.
