                All of you guys are hating on linus for choosing the razer, but I know for a fact that's what all of you guys would choose. Lol.

                                    And how many of them have a MIL durability rating? Just the gram? Maybe some flex is a good thing if you drop it, it absorbs the shock instead of breaking, ever consider that?

                                      Should've picked a Surface Book instead of Surface Laptop.
                                      Should've picked a MacBook Pro instead of Air. Power laptops like Razer Blade compared to ultrabooks? That's absolutely bullshit. We all know you're going to choose the Razer Blade anyway.

Personally i would prolly pick the Dell XPS over it thou - because they usually last, but id be happy with the gram too. Dont buy Razer, its fancy but the quality is just not there and you only need the NVIDIA GPU for games really...
