    Default NEW Razer Blade Pro 14", the best mbp alternative for djing?

    What do you guys think of this? Seems like one amazing product, especially in the build quality department.

    Can't really comment on the build quality if it hasn't been released yet?

    Lol- Razer with amazing build quality? If it's anything like their mice or keyboards it will be complete junk that disintegrates in a year or two.

    Can't even count how many of their mice I had bought that would always fall apart. I don't know why I kept buying them as long as I did.

    Considering the already fantastic build of the blade, it surely hasn't decreased since then.

    Agreed with peripherals, but have you ever had the blade in hand? It really is comparable to a mbp in terms of build.

    I have not. Is it machined out of solid pieces of aluminum?

    It is
    the only complaint i had about the older model was it being a 17", seems like they managed to shrink the thing quite a bit.
    And the speakers sound tinny
    And the keyboard isn't as nice as the mbp

    Still, these are really non-vital features, except if you're a heavy typist..

    The reviews of the current Blade say the keyboard and trackpad are quite bad, both of which are strong features of the MBP. Battery life is also very poor.

    Although i do game sometimes on my desktop, i wouldn't really have as much as an experience on a laptop. So no, the gpu wouldn't be a selling point for me. Still, much better built than some other gaming laptops
