There is always a premium on the latest models of CPU, GPU and such. That's a good portion of the price increase. Given time it will inch down a little.
But 1,300 is a bargain for good performing gaming laptops. Many run 2 to 3 thousand so what a deal. Mind you I'm not saying it like this video:

Before you comment suggesting another one, my preferred laptop is a razer blade. If you really feel I should consider another I suppose you can suggest.
Anyways, I am deciding between a 2013 blade or a 2014 blade. The price differential is is about 500 dollars, I have found an 800~ 2013 one on Amazon, and 1,250 2014 model on the razer store. All the guides say the 2014 isn't much better, but it seems odd getting a laptop model from two years ago, let alone after reading reviews on it's 'horrible' screen. The games I intend to play are mostly League of Legends, and other games that aren't too hardcore. Any suggestions on which notebook I should purchase? At this point I'm willing to spend the extra 500, but I need to know what that 500 is going to improve on the 2014 vs the 2013.
Thanks in advance.
