When Can We Expect 2018 Razer Blade Stealth

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi everyone,

 

I am a student and recently dropped my laptop. Luckily it still works so I can get through finals but I will need a new one certainly by the start of next semester in late August.

 

I am highly interested in the quad core Razer Blade Stealth. However, I am wondering if I should buy it now to use over the summer (for the mild amount of work I have to do) or wait to see if theres a new model by the start of next semestsr.

 

TLDR: Do you think we can expect a new Razer Blade Stealth model by this August? What can be different?

 

I know its an odd question since the quad cores just came out but any input would be appreciative.

 

Thanks

Fair enough. I'd like a quad core i7 (i5 if the price is right), thunderbolt 3 with 4 lanes for potential egpu, and 16gb ram for $1500 or less. Preferably 13" but 15" max. SSD size is kind of irrelevant for me but I'd obviously prefer to be able to swap it out if need be.

8550U and 8250U don't have much performance difference in most cases due to cooling and TDP limitations. Dell XPS 13 9370 seems like a good choice if you don't mind the lack of USB A ports. There are also options like HP Spectre x360 13, Lenovo Thinkpad T480/T580/T480s/P52s etc
