    Not sure if this'll ever be seen, but just thought I'd give my input on five years of daily use with mine. It's still a fast computer for me. I use it as my daily driver for school and personal projects, with some gaming thrown in too with decent results. Unfortunately, the battery swelled up to near bursting by early 2018, so I removed it as a fire precaution. Shortly later, Windows 10 started acting, well, funny, with it eventually corrupting itself to the point I had to restore it back to a fresh install. That didn't fix it either. At that point, I had to decide whether to get another computer or try to find alternative methods to make this one work. After remembering the $1100 I dumped into buying it, I ended up going with the second and installed Linux Mint as a last-ditch effort to get it to work. So yeah, I'm still not sure what was up with that, but I'm on it right now, so it must have been a Windows 10 thing. Overall, it's a decent little "desktop." I might replace the battery some day, but for now this works. If I would have written this review a few years ago, I would have given it awful feedback. Now, I'm sorta content with getting my money's worth out of it. It's not a bad computer, I just hope the issues I experienced are fixed in the newer models.

    Edit: I should note that my Razer is a late 2016. I'm not sure if this is too different from the early 2016 reviewed in the video, but figured I'd mention it.

    In 2019, where I can find this laptop to buy? If it is then what's the price?
    I don't have so much money, that's why I am hoping to buy this.
