    The award-winning Razer Blade is now available with the latest 7th Gen Intel Core i7 quad-core processor and faster memory: http://rzr.to/blade

    The new Razer Blade strikes the balance between power and mobility with a more powerful and efficient processor and standardized with 16 GB of DDR4 dual-channel memory running at 2400 MHz, Killer Wireless-AC and Thunderbolt™ 3 connectivity. In its characteristically Razer-sleek form factor packs the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics, enabling this beast to take on the latest games, and making it VR-Ready.

    For the ultimate visual experience, the Razer Blade display is available in a FULL HD IPS matte display or the new 4K UHD touch display (coming soon). This visual treat, is of course extended to on-lookers, with a keyboard that’s powered by Razer Chroma, with individually backlit keys and game-integrated lighting effects. Customize it through and through and make this gaming laptop truly your own.

    The much decorated Razer Blade with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics remains undisputedly Powerful. Portable. Perfect. Get it now on RazerStore: http://rzr.to/blade

    Though the specs were bumped, I was hoping that it would get the same trackpad from the Blade Pro (no more left and right track pad buttons) with chroma lighting around it. Not a deal breaker, but just thought it would be great to have it.

    I bet they do that with the late 2017 Blade but I can't wait that long Razer take my money !!!

    Any indication on when the 4K UHD will be available ? Also downscaling your games to 1080p will look much better now as there will be no scaling issue as with the 3k version ?

    It looks like the FHD version is now a Razerstore exclusive? Bummer - I'm glad I got my hands on a FHD 1060 a few weeks ago from MS...

    Nice! I just got my Blade, a little sad that I missed the refresh, but it's still more machine than I need in a laptop.

    Guys, please go talk to Linus Tech Tips, he really wants to help you work on your naming scheme. Calling it the exact same thing, 'The New Razer Blade', every year is not a good plan and could be a cause for confusion to some.

    Pleasant surprise for me today ! What version are you going for ? I want the 4K UHD

    The kabylake i7 7700HQ won't make a huge difference anyway

    Anyone else think the bezels look smaller ?

    Yeah, I bought mine during the CES sale and didn't get to use it until last week because of an RMA issue. I'm still happy with it, but I don't understand the people who ordered in the last week or two when it was pretty clear a refresh was on the way. :confused_:

    I agree. I think the ram is also a little faster, but it won't make much of a difference for me.
