    If the rest of Razer's product line is anything to go by then it's going to be an overpriced, poorly built piece of shit.

    i'd take an alienware prebuilt any day

    looks good but I bet in 3 years time will be no upgrades.

    Alienware is OP POS.. prefer razer (even though they r usually tacky)

    No difference from a PC. You can add/upgrade parts. They just added another price factor by making you buy proprietary hardware that's all.

    Exactly.

    I tried to buy a custom mousemat the other day...
    USD = $20... However once you type in Australian postcode it changes the cost to USD $40 + $20 shipping + Conversion on top.

    I responded with a letter to Razer. They told me that due to the cost of Australian import, shipping and business expenses that the cost increase is justified.

    Considering its an 'off the shelf' product from an american store where im footing the shipping bill.

    I have boycotted Razer for life.

    They actually have written licensing agreements with all their stores that they are not allowed to sell internationally unless they match the price range of Razors products in that country.

    Razor, go fuck yourself and Apple.

    Steelseries go.

    Looks too good to be true honestly, but it certainly is one of a kind. Very sleek and sexy... *drool*

    Let me guess, it's going to have some low end mobile GPU in it that you can slot in as needed?
    Looks nice indeed, but knowing Razer it will be overpriced and not worth it for something with mediocre hardware (Blade anyone?).

    The statement you make in the first sentence is so perfectly accurate.

    ..and then you follow it up with that.

    Looks like a custom Thermaltake Level 10 that will cost $5000 for $1500 worth of hardware.

    I'm not here to argue that Alienware make decent computers, rather that i'd take one over something that razer spit out without a second thought

    Mmm I think I'd rather pay $550 and buy a ps4
    Then fork out ~$2500 Us for that.

    i guess it will please the types who want a PC that they can upgrade, but have no actual knowledge of how to do this the normal way.

    still probably cheaper in the long run to just buy a top shelf PC, and pay for a tech to upgrade it for you when the time comes?
    youd likely end up with a much faster PC also, which would require far less frequent upgrades...


    useless.
    for the "more money than sense" and/or "look at me" crowd i'd say

    Boycotts only hurt you not the company you are boycotting.

    I don't agree with the concept but parts will be a challenge to source compared to normal PC.
