Razer Blade Stealth Ultrabook is one of the newest laptops that combines ultra-mobility with extreme performance. The thin CNC aluminium chassis encases the Intel i7 processor, and also hosts a powerful 4K high-resolution touch display.
Turning heads at the CES 2016
At the CES 2016, Razer Blade Stealth made a huge impression housing Windows 10 with a 12.5-inch screen that was attractive and powerful too. It can also be integrated with several gaming peripherals, and is externally coated with unique matte that makes it undeniably stylish.
Fusing seamlessly with Razer Core through Thunderbolt 3, the system delivers incredible desktop graphics and multiple connectivity options. Being extremely portable, it can be termed as one of the perfect Ultrabooks.
Sleek Finish and Terrific Battery Life
The Razer Blade Stealth Ultrabook has a durable chassis made of aircraft-grade aluminium. The sleek finish and extremely thin form factor is great for portability and usage, while its 8 hours of battery life can get you long time for work and play without the need for another charge.
Although it is not built as a gaming laptop, it provides a perfect amalgamation of a high-end ultrabook-style laptop that is sure to impress high-end users and gamers.
Impressive Attributes that Define its Style
The company’s previous laptops were appreciated widely since they were all reasonably thin and light even though most of them packed in serious gaming components. The Razer Blade Stealth replicates the successful design with the matte-black shell, sturdy construction, trendy design and the like. But it is not pitched as a gaming laptop and neither does it suit the business world completely.
Here is a laptop that includes a dedicated graphics card that is powerful enough for both the worlds and the Blade Stealth is just a part of a larger gaming ecosystem.
The Tough Specifications of Razer Blade Stealth
The Razer Blade Stealth Ultrabook is a compact laptop that is thin and classy. It includes a base model that features a strong 2,560×1,440 (QHD) touchscreen display. Although it is not 4K, it can display very good images and videos. Also it sports a current-gen Intel Core i7 processor, which is boosted with a reasonable 8GB of RAM and compact 128GB of storage. One can add more storage and even bump up the display with the optional 4K display although the price will shoot up.
The External Graphics Add-on
The Razer Core is an external box for being a canopy to its single desktop graphics card and provide an additional graphics rendering boost to the laptop with the seamless Thunderbolt-enabled USB-C connection.
Others have tried to create an external graphics solution for laptops, but no other players have been successful in balancing its overall price, the powerful performance, immense flexibility, and compact design all in one package. Asus has tried to make inroads in this segment for years, while Dell even pitched an external GPU box for the Alienware 13 launched in 2014, but the price point was beyond the reach of the masses to make a strong impact.
Hooking up Razer Core unit to a Razer Blade Stealth laptop makes it a complete gaming machine. Until then one can expect this ultrabook with optional 4K screen to be a reasonably powerful machine suited for all. With its great design and several high-end components, out of which some are not included like the backlit Chroma keyboard which is fun to play with. The price point is nearly $999 which is around £705 or AU$1,380 in other parts of the world. As expected a model with a 4K screen and 256GB of storage can be bought for $1,399.
