Expert Rating

Most gaming laptops are known to be fairly big and clunky, so the Razer Blade Stealth 13 is quite different from what most people expect. The ultrabook bears a sleek, ultrathin design that allows you to take it anywhere, and still packs a lot of punch in terms of what it can do. It features a 13 inch screen of a 1920 x 1080 resolution that makes it Full HD, and an impressive battery life of about 8 hours.

Gaming on this laptop is great especially if you buy the version that comes with an Nvidia Geforce GTX graphics card, but if you don’t, there’s still a version that comes integrated with Intel’s Iris Plus Graphics that’s not too bad either. Let’s review Razer Blade Stealth 13 and see if it has what it takes to be the best ultrabook for gaming.

Performance

With close to 100% coverage of the sRGB color spectrum, this Razor Blade gaming laptop makes the most of its 1080p Full HD resolution to deliver crisp and clear colors, just like the ASUS Zenbook 14. It’s CPU performance is also worthy of note, as it’s Core i7-1065G7 CPU from Intel’s Ice Lake generation ensures very snappy responsiveness. If you want, you can go all in and get the one that has an Intel Core i7-8565u processor that makes it powerful enough for heavy design-work, & registers much better performance compared to the Dell XPS.

Design

There’s not much change in the design of the Razor Blade Stealth 13, as most models (including this one) come sheltered in a black aluminium frame, and have RGB lighting on the keyboard to keep things fun. The one minute detail you might notice on the latest Blade Stealth is that the right shift key has been widened at the expense of the up and down arrow keys. Other than the shift key, everything is pretty much the same. By default, the laptop only comes in black, with the exception of the base model that is available in mercury white. In this color, the base model also looks a lot like the Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 if you think about it.

Value

The Razor Blade Stealth gaming ultrabook cannot contest the Lenovo Yoga 720 in terms of being pocket friendly, but it does offer 3 choices that you can choose from depending on both your budget and your preferences. To begin with, there’s the base model that has an Intel Core i7-1065G7 processor, 16GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD drive and integrated Iris Plus Graphics. Add a few coins and you’ll be able to afford the mid-range model that offers the same Intel Core i7-1065G7 processor, 16GB of memory, a bumped up 512 GB SSD drive and an Nvidia Geforce GTX 1650 GPU. At the top end of the spectrum we have the model that has everything you get with the mid-range model, but with the inclusion of a 4K HD touch display to make things just a bit more exciting.

Razer Blade Stealth 13 Wrap Up

The Razer Blade Stealth has a better battery life compared to most of its competitors, has different options for graphics and has a very robust body that allows for complete portability. In this regard, we think it may earn the rights reserved for the holder of the title of the best ultrabook for gaming.
