I doubt we'll see additional microphones, though I think they may update the Seiren and Seiren Pro with Chroma.

Thermal management is one of the biggest challenges our engineers face when designing thin and powerful notebooks. The Razer Blade Pro – at 0.88 inches thin – launched as the thinnest notebook to come equipped with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080. We designed one of the world’s thinnest vapor chambers from the ground up to help cool the laptop, and utilized something we call touch-point thermals to push heat away from where users touch the laptop.

Nonetheless, we have heard this feedback. There are always ways to manage thermals better, and that’s something we’ve challenged our engineers to continually improve upon in all of our laptops, including the Razer Blade Pro.

Yes! We are big proponents of users trying our hardware and seeing the difference themselves before buying. In July, our Blade Stealth and Blade became available for hands-on demos at Best Buy. More users than ever before can go into local stores and try our laptops for themselves.

To find the store nearest you, visit the Best Buy product pages and click on “Store Pickup.”

As for colors, Razer Chroma offers endless customization options for the lighting effects. Thanks for the feedback, we're always exploring new ways to meet our fans requests.

Good question! We see the Blade Stealth as a great productivity laptop to take with you to school or work, and for users that need more performance, we offer the Razer Core external GPU enclosure. A single Thunderbolt cable is all you need to connect the two devices, unlocking desktop-like performance on the Blade Stealth Ultrabook. Further, the Core enables users to continually upgrade their GPU as new components become available.

For those looking for more power from the laptop itself, we offer the 14-inch Razer Blade laptop. The chassis is slightly thicker than the 13.3-inch Blade Stealth but comes equipped with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 GPU, and Quad-Core processor.

I've got two questions(and yes, i realized i posted this elsewhere by accident)

1. Will a Razer store potentially open up in the Chicago area?

2. Is Razer maybe thinking about making a VR headset/system?

We’re investing heavily on gear and accessories at Razer. In fact, we now have a dedicated team of designers and marketers for the category.

While we don’t comment on future products, I can say that we have an aggressive accessories roadmap for this year. I’d encourage you to visit our RazerStore page for the latest updates.

Funny you should ask. Just yesterday we announced our new tenkeyless keyboard.

We’re all about choice when it comes to keyboards at Razer. Operating our own production lines at the factory level has enabled us to create our own mechanical switches, and new technologies like Mecha-Membrane and the ultra-low profile mechanical switch we have on our Razer Blade Pro laptop.

The triple-display notebook, Project Valerie, was announced as a concept at CES earlier this year. We’ve received a ton of amazing feedback since the show, and will use that feedback to explore the potential to bring something like Project Valerie to market.

There are a few key updates to the 2017 version of the Razer Blade Pro. While keeping the same amazingly thin 0.88-inch design, we were able to step up the CPU to the Quad-Core Intel Core i7-7820HK, and give users the ability to overclock it by going into “performance mode.”

The other big difference is the new Razer Blade Pro is the first mobile certified device by THX, delivering amazing visuals and high fidelity audio output.

Some of the great features we kept from the prior generation are the 17.3-inch 4K touch display with G-SYNC and 100% Adobe color space support, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics, 32GB of system memory, up to 2TB of RAID 0 SSD storage, and the ultra-low-profile mechanical keyboard that is powered by Razer Chroma.

Check out Sherri’s review of the 2017 Razer Blade Pro where it earned another Editor’s Choice award.

Our 14-inch Razer Blade is a fantastic virtual reality system, meeting the spec requirements for both HTC Vive and Oculus while providing the ports necessary to connect either headset. At 0.70 inches thin and just over 4 pounds, it’s also one of the most portable VR systems available today.

As for RazerStore, we’re always looking for the next location for our store. Hit us up on Twitter and Facebook and let us know you’d like us in Chicago! Personally, I’m always looking for an excuse to visit Giordano’s pizza :)

Portability has always been a key tenant of our design approach, and the amount of performance our engineers can squeeze into our 14-inch Razer Blade laptop is amazing. We understand some users want a larger screen experience on-the-go, and we currently have our 17-inch Razer Blade Pro as the next step up in screen size. We’ll continue to listen to feedback from fans such as yourself as to what is desired in our laptops, both in terms of size and features, to deliver the best possible products.

What is the design process for Razer keyboards and laptops? Do you have a testing facility? What do you look for in a good design? What makes a "good" keyboard?

Hi I have two questions:
- Do you have plans to use the new Max-Q design in the future of the Razer Blades?
- Is there any change for a updated version of the Blade 14" be released this year?

Another question: I'm in the market for a wireless mouse for my laptop and I'm wondering - does Razer make any that use a nano transmitter similar to what Logitech uses in any of its' products?

I've always wondered about a tablet version of a Blade, something like the Surface where it has a detachable keyboard. It could be as simple as moving the display to where the keyboard is, and moving the cooling vents, then making a detachable keyboard. Possibly make more than just a type cover and make a keybaord with a battery bank, more storage, SLI, etc. Blades already have a high quality touch screen anyways, so why not just put it in place of the keyboard and have a tablet? It'd also expand Razer's markets, as it's just not a laptop.
I'm not talking about something like the Edge. I'm talking about what would essentially be a Surface Clone, a full Windows tablet that runs off of laptop hardware, except be much more powerful. I find that tablets/convertibles are easier to manage when you're docking them, as you don't have a keyboard and trackpad taking up desk space.

Question from Jackielyn : "Just wondering if..."

There is a possibility that RAZER create a gaming tablet pc? That would be awesome right? Like the one ASUS released. However, I think that you guys can upgrade that kind of device and make a high-definition tablet pc. I'll be looking forward on seing that. Btw, I enjoyed using your mech keyboard. Kudos! :love:

Anyone at Razer can pitch a product design or even an idea to our engineering team, and many people do. From there, our engineers and industrial designers get to work. We have design offices in San Francisco, Taiwan and Singapore, staffed with some of the best talent in the world.
We often send early, unannounced product out for testing with Team Razer, our global roster of professional gamers. The players use the product and offer us invaluable feedback for what they like and don’t like. From there, the product gets tweaked until we deem it ready to launch.

The new Max-Q design approach introduced by NVIDIA is a great step forward to bringing more thin and powerful laptop options to users. We have always believed in blending mobility and performance in our laptops -- since the inception of our systems business in 2011 -- with the approach of minimizing sacrifices to both design and experience. We haven’t announced any plans for Max-Q designed products yet, but as always we are listening to our customers and will develop innovative solutions to meet their needs. As for an updated version of the 14-inch Razer Blade, we will be shipping the 4K model this summer to complement the current Full HD configuration.

That’s an interesting question, and one we explored with Project Fiona and the Razer Edge tablet a few years ago. We’re seeing more and more people move away from tablet PCs toward devices like two-in-ones, and have been following that trend closely.

While we don’t comment on anything that may or may not be in development, we’re always interested to hear thoughts from the community. What would you like to see in a Razer tablet, or a two-in-one? How can Razer improve upon what’s already out there? What’s most important to you for that type of device?

Drop us a line on Razer Insider. We’re always listening :)
