Razer Blade Stealth / Should I get rid of my desktop?

Trying to figure out if I'm the only one that wants just one machine to "do it all". My desktop is due for an upgrade soon, or at least that's what I'm telling myself (lol). I was reading up on the new Stealth today, seems like it's not exactly what I'm looking for but it's so close. It's designed for someone who games and needs to be on the go. Looks like a great answer to a problem, just not mine. I would buy the stealth and core in a heartbeat if it could at least play games on low or medium without the core (not familiar with on board graphics anymore). Is there any solution to someone like me that I'm not aware of? Can I actually replace my desktop with a laptop or some configuration similar to the stealth and core or am I talking about a pipe dream? Thanks everyone in advance.

 

Desktop Specs:

 

Gigabyte 990FXA W/ Corsair h100i

MSI GTX 870

8GB G.Skill RAM

Please, no. Its CPU is gonna do jack shit with something like a 970.

Local dickhead and VHS collector who also has an unhealthy obsession with the 6th generation of consoles.

the Razer blade may only be using a Dual Core with HT

 

Asus offering of the ultrabook with the external GPU is a quad core with HT

Or it you DO NOT want a dedicated gpu, the Asus version of what is now the Razer Blade Stealth is a superior option.

Now that I've seen this I'm thinking of waiting on the new version to come out. I think instead of updating my desktop anymore and since I'm moving soon I'll sell my current laptop and desktop to buy it and a dock. Hopefully it'll have really good specs otherwise it's back to the drawing board.

I suspect the mystery laptop Linus raged about in this video (around 3 minutes in) would be significantly cheaper than laptops that still include an eGPU solution, like the new GS40 and old GS30, but without having a dedicated GPU already inside the laptop. I also think that with all this thunderbolt/usb-c connectivity in new laptops, there will be even cheaper laptops from other manufactures that have a nice quadcore CPU with the ability for you to buy your own GPU dock solution.

 

I guess we'll see!
