    The right shift key wouldn't be an issue for me, I've always been a left shifter, the only aspect Mavis Beacon failed me in. Otherwise I'd totally get this laptop. If I didn't already own a blade 17 pro. Though I would like something more portable for on the go so I don't have to undock my blade 17.

    It would be perfect if it had an aspect ratio of 16:10

    I swear to god that stupid shift key is the only reason I'm apprehensive about getting this laptop. I'm afraid they'll never change their arrow key placement, and that I'll never get a Razer Blade because of it...

    What a wimp. I use a 40% keyboard that doesn't even have a right shift button, nor a fn row, number row, numpad or some symbol keys, you need to use the FN modifiers to get to them. Custom built mechanical keyboard by MiniVan keyboards. If you can't learn to type with a single shift button you are the bad typist. I can hit upwards of 100 wpm no errors (yes I practice in typing apps too) and I don't chicken peck at the keys. The full size arrows are probably the main reason I want this device. They didn't come up with a dumb idea, it's very common in the compact mechanical keyboard market so it makes sense they would borrow it. There is a learning curve, yes, but I would rather a full size set of navigation arrows than a duplicate of a key with so little room. It's practically a waste of space to have two of the same buttons on a compact keyboard. Also, the smaller enter and backspace are very common in the 40% keyboard community. Ya'll should check them out if your into tech which you all are. Even some of the 60% sized keyboards are doing away with the right shift in place of full size arrows or to accommodate a function button where this right shift is. This ignorant rant by Linus is the exact reason I stopped watching this channel, I just so happened to watch most of the other Blade reviews so I thought why not check this one out, 'he couldn't have been as dumb as I remember him right?", well wrong, same ignorant complaints about something he doesn't even know about. His reviews are way to opinionated and acts like his small gripes make a product horrible. There are other people in the world with their own preferences, you know that right... Don't ignorantly say you must be a bad typist if you don't need the right shift key when you don't even know the first thing about custom keyboards and their layouts that often lack a right shift key..... Can ya'll tell that Linus gets me gassed up. Do some research for once man.

    I usually lock my fps to what ever my displays refresh rate is maybe even lower so like for 60hz I lock it to 60fps, 144hz I lock it at 140fps. IDK why, and I don't know if it is right but I just do.

    I just bought this last week. People are seriously underplaying how useful this is as a mobile video editing machine. It can chew through pretty heavy 1080p timelines. I love it it's perfect for me.

    $1800.00 for a wonky keyboard? That is the one thing that matters most. How many are going to walk around with an external keyboard with built in trackpad or mouse?

    5-6 hours average? What’s it’s like gaming 30 mins? Again a testament to gaming laptops are stupid because you can’t actually game on them without hugging a wall so if you want a good ultra book then go to an Apple store because nothing beats them and W10 sucks for productivity.

    And now imagine that little thing with a 3:2 ratio and a better right shift key placement.
    It would dominate, without a doubt.

    There has to be many more cheaper Windows alternatives for the Razer Blade Stealth. It just needs a competitive CPU, Battery, and Thunderbolt 3 right? Please!
