                                Wtf can the mx150 even run at 4k? Literally only there to drive 4k video streaming.

                                  Guys I got the Razer Blade 13 2019 (with MX150) but 1080p version, I’m used to the glass screens of my Surface Pro 6 and MacBook Pro (2018), do you think I’ll get annoyed or really see a downgrade? My main concern is the bezels that pop out instead of being a flat surface like the Mac or Pro 6. Would appreciate an opinion on this, thanks!

Sub 1000 pounds for a MacBook Air here currently with a free pair of beats 3 which you can get about 150 for on eBay. There is a reason they are powerhouses and they know their market well. Turn it on, it works, it doesn't need to be charged for a while and the text is crisp!
