Razer recently announced the release of their re-designed 13-inch ultraportable Stealth laptop line consisting of three new configurations. The new Razer Blade Stealth is now available with individually calibrated micro edge thin-bezel displays with up to 4K resolution, increased battery life of up to 13 hours, and available NVIDIA GeForce dedicated graphics for all your content creation needs.
The Razer Blade Steath looks like a solid alternative to those of you out there, who do a bit of gaming as well as editing, but prefer a more portable laptop than a Razer Blade or a (god forbid) a MacOS MBP alternative.
The “Stealth” has a lot that the latest MacBook Air doesn’t have – and that is an actual GPU that you can do some 4K editing on without the need for a massive and expensive external GPU station.

However, the benefits of the new Blade Stealth do not end there. The new Micro Edge 4.9mm thin side bezels are over 60% thinner than the previous version for a visually stunning edge-to-edge picture.
For retina-shattering clarity, the Razer Blade Stealth is available in a 13.3-inch 4K (UHD really, but this is standard in this class laptops – 3840 x 2160) resolution with touch functionality and supports 100% sRGB colour space. Each Stealth laptop display is now individually custom calibrated for top colour accuracy out-of-the-box.
If you don’t to spend the extra cash on a 4K display, you can also get the new Blade Stealth with a Full HD display providing 100% sRGB colour space for vivid colors, and improved power efficiency for longer battery life.

The main selling point of the Razer Blade Stealth is of course – ultra portability, without a huge compromise in performance. The 2019 Blade Stealth has been redesigned and delivers increased performance in a compact chassis with up to 13 hours of battery life.
The unibody frame is fortified using precision CNC-machining of high-grade aluminium, and its matte black colour is anodized deeper into the aluminium at a sub-molecular level for maximum durability.
Now more powerful and with a bigger surface area, without compromising portability, the new Razer Blade Stealth includes a built-in 53.1Wh battery optimized for all day mobility, in all configurations.
For the first time ever, the Razer Blade Stealth is available with NVIDIA GeForce graphics for up to 4X performance improvement when gaming and editing graphic content. The Stealth now has the more powerful 25W NVIDIA GeForce MX150 4GB GDDR5 graphics, double the memory of similar 13-inch systems.
Razer advanced thermal system and new power management options have been integrated into Razer Synapse 3 software to maximize battery life, quiet fans in a meeting, or provide full power when gaming.
All configurations of the Razer Blade Stealth feature the new Whisky Lake 8th Gen Intel Core i7-8565U processor. The new quad-core processor outperforms its predecessor in throughput and responsiveness with Turbo Boost speeds up to 4.6 GHz.
The base model of the Razer Blade Stealth comes with 8GB of 2133MHz dual-channel memory while dedicated graphics models are loaded with 16GB of 2133MHz dual-channel memory (non upgradable).
Connectivity options include Thunderbolt 3 / USB-C, USB-C 3.1 Gen 2, 2 x USB-A, and a 3.5mm audio combo port.
