Razer Blade Stealth Review and Specifications

Overview

The Razer Blade Stealth is a high-end notebook trying to upset the rank quo currently head by the likes of Lenovo, Asus, Dell, and Apple. While Razer is a gaming brand, the Razer Blade Stealth isn’t a gaming laptop; it instead matches the specs of the overall performance rate as that delivered by Dell XPS 13. Razer also allows you to pick up its Core graphics dock to expand the Stealth’s gaming capabilities.

As a standalone machine, the Razer Blade Stealth is a slightly compromised experience. It undercuts its high-end rivals regarding price, but its idiosyncrasies mean its appeal will be limited to more brand-faithful Razer buyers. The second iteration of the Razer Blade Stealth retains every little thing I liked about the original, such as the sleek and light chassis; the customizable Chroma keyboard; and a beautiful, bright display. It also provides the Intel’s latest Kaby Lake Core i7 processor, which offers better overall performance and makes it a direct contender to the Apple MacBook Pro, Dell XPS 13, HP Spectre, and Asus ZenBook 3. However, the laptop is held back by shorter battery life than the competitors it hopes to usurp, and a keyboard that’s beautiful but still uncomfortable.

8.5 Total Score
Summary

Powered by Intel's latest Kaby Lake processor inside, the Razer Blade Stealth remains one of the prettiest, most powerful ultraportables on the market. But a stiff keyboard and below average battery life is still a threat to the laptop's beauty and power.
