    I'm pretty sure these will start out at $2k and go up in price from there.

    Why wouldn't they? That is what they sell for here in the US. It is a whole lot of computer in a small package. It's still cheaper than a MacBook Pro and higher performance.

    What?????

    Macbook Pro 15" Retina
    http://www.apple.com/shop/buy-mac/macbook-pro?product=MJLT2LL/A&step=config#
    $2,499.99
    i7
    16gbddr3 1600mhz
    512gb PCIE flash
    Iris Pro+Radeon 370X(In Windows, DX12 multi GPU config when possible)
    Force touch trackpad with multiple point multitouch
    2880x1800 220PPI Retina display

    Razer Blade Pro
    http://www.razerzone.com/store/razer-blade-pro
    i7
    16gbddr3 1600mhz
    256 SSD+500GBHDD
    Geforce 960m
    Trackpad?
    1080p display

    They're about the same, but the Macbook Pro has a better display, and faster memory. In DX12 situations where a game can use multiple GPU's and mix them, unless the i7 in the Razer has Iris as well then the Macbook will also win in this case.

    Also with the Macbook, it's guaranteed support for Mac Os X and Windows 10 in one machine.

    First off, you cant really compare a Macbook to a Gaming Laptop.

    The Razor Balde QHD Specs:

    Display
    14.0" IGZO QHD+ 16:9 Ratio, 3200x1800, with LED backlight
    Graphics
    NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 970M (3GB GDDR5 VRAM)
    Processor
    Intel® Core™ i7–4720HQ
    Quad-Core processor with Hyper Threading 2.6GHZ / 3.6GHz (Base / Turbo)
    Chipset
    Mobile Intel® PCHM 8 series chipset, HM87
    Memory
    16GB dual-channel onboard memory
    (DDR3L-1600MHz)
    Operating System
    Windows® 10 (64-Bit)
    Storage
    128GB SSD
    (SATA M.2) 256GB SSD
    (SATA M.2) 512GB SSD
    (SATA M.2) 256GB SSD
    Communication
    Intel® Wireless-AC 7260HMW (802.11a/b/g/n/ac + Bluetooth® 4.0)

    Display has a higher resolution than the MAC, the gtx970m slays the 370x in performance, the 370x gets 12fps on crysis 3 maxed, 970m gets 33fps. (1080p)

    And I guarantee you the Razor will be $1600-1800 price range.

    The QHD model isn't available right now, I linked to one that is available.

    And also I don't see why not, the Macbook Pro is actually a pretty capable machine with Windows on it.

    You are quoting the Razer Blade Pro, the 14" Razer Blade is much higher spec and yes it is faster and cheaper than a Macbook Pro, no matter how capable you think it is.

    The new Razer Blade is not available, which is why I linked to the only available one.

    And even in the case if it is available, gpu and a higher resolution on the screen is what it has over the Macbook Pro. This does not mean the Pro is not capable in any sort of way. Price wise, it is cheaper than the Pro. At that point, the only advantage of buying the Macbook Pro over the Razer Blade would be Mac Os X support.
