Razer updates the Blade Stealth with Kaby Lake and new 13.3-inch display

Razer has launched some excellent laptops over the years and most recently, it expanded on its Blade line with a third laptop, the Razer Blade Stealth. Now, Razer’s tiny 12.5-inch thin and light has been upgraded, bumping the screen up to 13.3-inches, making the body thinner and upgrading the internal hardware.

The new 13-inch Razer Blade Stealth carries a 3200×1800 IGZO display with 100 percent sRGB color space as standard. The whole laptop measures in at less than 13mm thick, weighs just 2.93 pounds and claims to offer up to nine hours of battery life. As usual, the body of the laptop is made from CNC-milled aluminium, making it a real contender up against something like the MacBook Pro.

Under the hood you will find an Intel Core i7-7500U processor, 16GB of RAM and 256GB, 512GB and 1TB PCIe SSD options. This particular laptop does not come with a discrete GPU but like Razer’s other laptops, it does come with compatibility for the Razer Core, so you can plug in an external GPU for some extra power.

KitGuru Says: The Razer Blade is one of my favourite Windows laptops but unfortunately, they do have a hefty price tag. Have many of you ever used one of Razer’s laptops? What do you think?
