Razer Blade Stealth late 2017 Update?

Go to solution Solved by OmJo93,

I haven't seen any news about a Kaby Lake-Refresh refresh for the Stealth coming, but I'm going to guess if they do it'll be around November for the Christmas season.

So I’ve been looking to buy the Razer Blade Stealth for daily driver as I like the looks, form factor and performance (at least for school oriented use). Recently razer just updated the site to include in the product description and choice tab to specify that the 13.3” model uses a dual-core processor. So I was wondering if you guys think this would be significant evidence that they are going to update to the newer 8th gen 8650u or 8550u processors. Especially given that they’ve had significant incentives added for the last month or two, it seems like they’re trying to either decrease their stock in prep for the update or just doing the regular razer thing of including a bunch of stuff with their products. Really looking for insight as I don’t want to have buyers remorse if they end up updating the model a week or two after I purchase a dual core model.

I literally just purchased the damn laptop with the Dual-Core... guess my intuition and detective skills were correct, fml. Hopefully I can cancel my order and get the newer one just cause battery life and performance would be on par with the xps or any other kaby lake R laptop.
