    OLED on TV's is basically the best thing ever. The colours, the deep black, the insane contrast.... oh yeeeaaahhh. But is it still that good on a laptop?

        Let's be real for a second. 4k actually makes a lot of sense on 15inch displays! And I can still easily see Evey individual pixels. 8K 120Hz is preferred if the computing technology were advanced enough to overcome all the drawbacks that brings!

                This video gets a little confusing. You talk ill about the keyboard but in the other video when you tested out the Stealth 13 you were talking about how great it feels (and I'm only assuming they use the same switches). Also, this is supposed to be a review of the 15 and doesn't have the short right shift key you mention., unless you're calling them both short since they are the same size.

                  OLED is okay for me for a phone/tablet but on a laptop/TV no because of burn-in especially when I play car racing games and JRPGs (health bar and a minimap display must be on).

                    Thank you for stating this! Really high res on fairly small screens comes at a cost but brings not much of any benefit really.
                    (and the ridiculous shift-cursors layout too)

                      why are we still stuck on OLED
                      I guess the market really likes selling garbage
                      WHERE'S MY mLED!

                      don't answer that, it's rhetorical ;)

                        So cool, laptop but sadly it's not HDR, just sRGB. The Lenovo one has HDR but sadly not OLED- nothing's perfect.

                            It really is a thing of beauty but ... cost just to much, reminds me of a hot guy that sucks in bed. Maybe sucks isn't the best word but you know what i mean.

                                    There is one place where you have gone wrong when talking about gaming.

                                    I include myself into a category of gamers that dp not chase the frame rates, but rather a great visual experience. I will play Anno and Total War series over fast paced shooter. I am happy to drop my character on Eve, because I'm not bothered about progression, yet Eve looks AMAZING on my 60" TV.

                                    All of those games still require the grunt, but an OLED screen fits them much more.

                                    Saying that gamers are just a bunch of idiots with trigger happy fingers, is an offense to 99% of gamers.

                                            If only the OLED panel was 120Hz and G-Sync. I could care less about absolute colour accuracy and if I needed it I would manually calibrate it and never change the brightness.

                                              It would be nice to know what the colour accuracy would be if you actually did that. Seems like details they could have covered, an obvious next step.

The main reason i need this is for school work, productivity, watching netflix/youtube and casual light gaming. For anyone who has the razer blade 15, please say if it is too big or average sized...
                                                                    Also whats better for school? this or the blade stealth? Someone pls reply coz i am rlly confused...

                                                                                  I dont get why they are so few 17" laptops. And even if they are, they have shit components....and even if you would want to have them with better components, their price just skyrockets to double of a 15" . I mean...putting things into compact frames isnt such a new technology anymore today. Everything is damn thin. One thing that is lacking is, how to cool those fast, thin things but Im not sure that those parts make the product expensive. I still think half of the price is still just paying for a brand.
