The new Blade Stealth 13-inch Ultrabook is a mobile warriors dream

The Razer Blade Stealth has always been lauded as one of the most powerful 13-inch ultraportable laptops — being one of the few that can actually game. 

Today, Razer announced the evolutionary upgrade of the Blade Stealth which now shares the same design language of the critically received Razer Blade 15.

Razer Blade Stealth — sexier than ever. 

The new Razer Blade Stealth comes with individually calibrated 4K screens, Intel Whisky lake processors, Nvidia dedicated graphics and the promise of up to 13 hours battery life.

All this crammed into a gorgeous, slim aluminium uni-body chassis with a matte black finish. Razer has ditched the older curved body for more straight edges and vastly smaller bezels.

A much more subtle black finish Razer logo replaces the tradition look-at-me green logo from previous model and I love the understated elegance of it. 

The new display comes with 60% smaller bezels in a FHD or 4K touch configuration with support for 100% of sRGB color space. This is excellent for multimedia content creators.  

Whisky Lake 8th Gen Intel Core i7-8565U processor combined with GeForce MX150 4GB GDDR5 graphics and up to 512GB PCIe M.2 hard drive means blistering productivity and gaming performance.

A 53.1Wh battery and some nifty optimisations promise an astonishing 13 hours of battery life making the Blade Stealth a true mobile warrior. 

The Blade Stealth also takes security seriously featuring Windows Hello, a first for Razer Blade family. Using the web camera which has IR, Windows Hello unlocks your Blade Stealth using facial recognition. No more annoying passwords. 

The new anti-ghosting keyboard has been optimised to feel more responsive and punchier and features a single-zone RGB backlighting. Powered by Razer Chroma with 16.8million colours options and customisable via Razer Synapse software. 

Unlike the MacBook Air which only has a Thunderbolt 3(USB-C) port, the Blade Stealth also has USB-C 3.1, two USB-A and 3.5m audio combo port so you’ll never be struggling to connect your peripherals. 

The Thunderbolt 3 port also allows the Blade Stealth to seamlessly connect with external desktop graphics enclosures or eGPU’s. Combine that with a monitor and you have an excellent mobile workstation setup for extra performance. 

Four upward firing speakers with a Smart Amp and Dolby Atmos make this little guy an audio boombox as well. 

As a Gamer-Designer-Writer, I can appreciate having all that power to work on the go. The Blade Stealth would make my commutes heaven.

The Blade Stealth is currently available in the U.S with availability in Australia and New Zealand to be announced at a later date.
