Razer updated one of the most popular laptops, the 13.3-inch Blade Stealth, with a new chassis and new specifications. The updated Blade Stealth can be configured as a full HD battery, battery-powered laptop, or as a 4K touch screen device with a discrete graphics card. Ultimately, this will be Razer's most portable and affordable laptop, in direct competition with Apple and Dell devices.
The big thing with the stealth update of stealth software is its altered presence. At first glance, I thought the new Blade Stealth was smaller than the previous generation, until I placed it next to each other. In fact, the 2.82-pound laptop is actually four-tenths of a centimeter thicker, with thinner 4.9-mm panels flanking the screen (which is 60 percent thinner than the previous generation), giving the impression that he has a smaller footprint. It also has a smaller power stone for charging via USB-C.
You could get a little more for your money this year as well: The new Blade Stealth starts with a quad-core processor but with the same starting price from 1,399 USD. So far you only got two cores, and for $ 1,499 you would get a quad-core chip.
The new Blade Stealth features an Intel Core i7-8565U quad-core 1.8GHz processor (Turbo Boost at 4.6GHz), integrated Intel UHD 620 graphics, 8GB of RAM, a 1080p matte screen (with 100 percent sRGB coverage). and a slower 256GB SATA SSD.
If that's not enough, you can upgrade the Blade Stealth laptop to a 4K glossy touchscreen, a new 25-watt version of the Nvidia MX150 graphics chip, which Razer says is fast enough to play League  Fortnite (at lower settings) at 1080p or 4K, 16GB of RAM and a faster 512GB PCIe solid-state drive. These upgrades increase the price of Stealth to $ 1,899.
The stealth is not a gaming notebook (even with the MX150 chip), but both models still have eGPU support. This allows you to use a chassis such as Razer's proprietary core dock to connect a desktop-class GPU to four PCIe lanes via a Thunderbolt 3 connection for 40Gb transfers.
Razer has not retained the backlighting of each chroma key we've seen in the Advanced Blade 15 and the latest-generation stealth. Instead, Razer replaced it for the single-zone layout in the base Blade 15 to extend the battery life. According to company representatives, the base load is 1080p stealth up to 13 hours, or three hours more than before -gen stealth. We'll see how that develops as we look at the new stealth over the next few weeks.
Another new hardware extension is the IR camera, which is attached to the top of the screen. You can use it to log in to Blade Stealth using Windows Hello Face Detection. It was a very sought-after feature on previous blade laptops, so it's great to see facial recognition finally appear in their lineup.
The new Razer Blade Stealth is launched today at Razer.com for $ 1,399 and selected retailers in the US and Canada. Retailers in the UK, France, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Iceland, China, Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore and Taiwan will soon be added.
