    Now finally they are available in EU, at least german and UK stores, i think it will be also available in France. Okay make it more Razer, and bring Gunmetal one here someday, I'll wait patiently.

    Wish they could provide a better timeline on when the gunmetal variant will be available.

    According to the Razer website, there is no difference.
    https://www.razerzone.com/gaming-systems/razer-blade-stealth
    Then click on "Tech spec" toward the bottom of the page.
    I bought my 12.5 stealth last month when it first went on sale for 1399. I'm very happy with it. I'm just saving up for the core and a card now.

    Down the road I'd like to upgrade to the 14 inch, but thats for another conversation :)

    Oh and David Lee has a great breakdown on youtube of the key differences

    When will the Gunmetal version be available on the Razer store? Amazon has it listed already but only in the 512GB variant.

    I had placed an order for the gunmetal 256gb version on Amazon and it currently states release date as being July 25th on my orders page. If I click on the link for the item though Amazon states it can't find the page. Now I'm wondering if the 25th is accurate or not.

    It won't let you order a 256GB version of the gunmetal anymore and their support chat said they aren't currently selling it in that capacity.

    I prefer pc desktop gaming to be honest , The blade looks cool but ive never really been a big fan of laptops. :rolleyes:Having said all of that this looks like a beast and if i had it id probably change my mind :big_grin_:

    i'll order mine today, hopefully with low delivery time, and i am currently trying to find a solution for using a Samsung T3 for example while powering the stealth. It sadly just has usb 3.0

    I'm starting to regret having ordered through Amazon as they are not able to confirm or not their estimate (the only thing I know is that they don't have stock right now).
    If I didn't have this fear about Razer's own after sales services (due to the numerous bad experiences read here and elsewhere), I would cancel it right now and re-order from Razer store...

    Any ideas if they are going to do the same to the 14 inch one?? Like thinner bezels and better trackpads?

    Mine was delivered to bordeaux today!
    The core was in 2nd order and should have been delivered too before 12am... but still in transit to destination... might get it today or tomorrow... too bad i can't setup my full system this evening.

    The blade 13 runs quite nice, a tad more reactive than my lenovo x250.
    I just upgraded the win 10 home to pro, almost all software are set up, i just need to get a real internet connection to set up games as my LTE data would be maxed out with game download.

    First game test this evening or tomorrow!

    Quick update, well after a couple weeks of minor abuse so far no major issues with my black 13.3, except for all the finger prints 8). Dbrand skin added to top cover to deal with my ocd...

    After tearing apart the slick packaging, I immediately upgraded to Win pro, swapped out the 256gb pm951 for a bigger and faster evo 960. Used windows 10 backup-->emergency disk boot-->restore apps to mirror the factory image, and "minitool partition" to extend the unallocated space on C partition, quick and easy swap. At this price point, thinking the evo ssd should at least be the default baseline ssd, just my 2 cents.

    evo 960 512gb perf on Stealth 13.3

    Only one minor issue when connected in home office mode. Very laggy "lancehead" mouse when mouse/keyboard are connected to monitor usb3's and using usb-c carrier between laptop and monitor. The workaround is simply plug mouse directly into one of the scarce usb3s on laptop, one extra cable to deal with for grab and go. Installed the latest drivers from "latest driver versions" and no change, most likely driver growing pains or could also be the cable. Ordered new thunderbolt v3 cable (40gbps) as a precaution.

    new setup: 13.3 blackstealth, ornata chroma keyboard, lancehead wireless mouse, lg 38uc99 21:9

    It looks soooo puuurty. What's the battery life on this like? Does it throttle? Why is this better than the X1 Carbon as an ultrabook?
