After seeing this at CES i was hooked and waiting.
What else could go wrong right?
i7, 8GB ram, 4K screen, 8 hour battery, metal build, 2.7lb and all for $1400 plus they promised the core!
I bought and returned it after using for two weeks, here is why:
- Battery is NOT even 4h under light use. C’mon all manufacturers are liars, but this is perhaps on par only with Dell xps 13 claims on 15h battery. I guess it can get 8h idling with screen off
- Bezels, I thought I will get used to them. I didn’t, I could not look 3+ cm bezels, not in 2016 and not after spending more than $1.5K on an ultrabook (with taxes)
- Build - how could they make a MATTE black chassis that is such a fingerprint magnet!!! Just how? And worst part you cannot just wipe it off!
- Razer Core - it is $500 for just a box and PSU! It must be like a 1000% mark-up on that piece of crap. No wonder they were so sneakily quite and delayed the announcement. They wanted people to buy the RBS and then milk them for more money on the core!!! This is just a disgusting business practice! Not buying anything from Razer any time soon
