Razer Announces Redesigned Blade Stealth With Improved Performance, Battery Life

Posted on December 4, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in Hardware with 4 Comments

Razer today announced a new version of its Blade Stealth laptop. The company is introducing some fairly major upgrades to the Blade Stealth after a while.

The company has redesigned the Blade Stealth to look much better than before. The display, available in 4K and Full HD models, now has much thinner bezels around it, coming in at 4.9mm. The bezels are apparently 60% thinner than before, though the device continues to have a fairly ugly, and large chin at the bottom.

The device is now built with precision CNC-machining of high-grade aluminium, so the build quality of the laptop should feel much better than before, or at least last longer. Going back to the display, Razer says it now individually calibrates all the display panels, so you will get much better color accuracy out-of-the-box, much like Microsoft’s Surface devices.

The company is including Nvidia’s GeForce MX150 with 4GB of GDDR5 RAM for the first time ever, resulting in a 4x boost in graphics performance that should help quite a lot with gaming and video editing. Under the hood, there’s also an Intel U-Series quad-core Core i7-8565U 8th-gen processor, which can at a clock speed of up to 4.6GHz. The device is available with up to 16GB of RAM, but the base model comes with 4GB of RAM. All of that power should get you around 13 hours of battery life, according to the company.

The device is also packed with a bunch of ports, including Thunderbolt, Type-C, Type-A, and a headphone jack.

Razer’s new Blade Stealth laptops start at $1,399 and it’s available for purchase in the United States and Canada today. It’ll be coming “soon” to other countries, including the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Nordics, China, Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, and Taiwan.

    I just checked out there website and the $1399 model is 8GB and Intel 620 graphics. $1599 gets one 16GB and NVIDIA graphics. Looks like a decent value.
