Actually I looked up Razer Blade and I would have bought it only if it had a 1080p Display

I don't mean to be "that guy," but please, please don't buy a gaming laptop.

All gaming laptop manufacturers have high failure rates over time, including Razer. They're heat management also puts immense strain on the system because they try to fit so much into a small package.

If you want to game, build a desktop. Gaming laptops are just a bad investment.

I'd say you have a 75% chance of board failure in the first two years.

I've owned 2 gaming laptops. First one (Asus G73) is a refurb that my fiance now has, and the one I have now (MSI GT780DX) performs wonderfully. I re-pasted both of them, and they run super cool now. Not sure where you're getting the high failure rate statistic from, because as long as you keep them cool they'll be fine.
