Razer redesigns Blade Stealth laptop with thinner bezels and dedicated GPU

New Razer Blade Stealth announced by Razer

Razer's leading Ultrabook, the Razer Blade Stealth, can now double as a gaming laptop - nearly.

The new thin bezels are over 60% thinner than its predecessor, according to Razer. Dubbed the Razer Blade Stealth Base Model, Graphics Model, and Graphics Model 4K you might be able to guess the major changes as we move through the range. Like Surface devices, each Razer laptop display is now individually custom calibrated for unbelievable color accuracy out-of-the-box. But, for the first time in the laptop's history, the new Blade Stealth sports the option of a discrete graphics chip from Nvidia, and yet Razer still promises a battery life of up to 13 hours. Razer also retained the ideal web camera placement at the top of the screen to avoid awkward shots.

The new graphics option comes available to the mid-level Razer Blade Stealth for 2019, complementing an Intel Core i7-8565U CPU, 256GB-to-512GB of SSD storage and 8GB-to-16GB of DDR3 memory at 2,133MHz.

Despite packing more power than previous models, the new Razer Blade Stealth has a more compact surface area with the micro edge thin display bezels. As was the case with the 2018 Razer Blade Stealth before it, the a black "tone-on-tone" Razer logo is stamped on the lid. Additionally, the laptop can be charged nearly anywhere with the compact 65W USB-C charger that works on most flights with AC power available. Compared to similar 13-inch systems, however, Razer points out that it opted for the more powerful 25W GeForce MX150 with 4GB of GDDR5 memory, whereas the 15.6-inch Aspire E 15 and several similarly configured 13-inch laptops use the 2GB version. All models also come with an Intel UHD Graphics 620 GPU, with dedicated graphics models dynamically switching between the integrated and dedicated graphics when needed.

Razer has redesigned the external looks of this laptop.

Despite being smaller, Razer has managed to cramp in more power, at least where graphical processing is concerned.

Adjustable in the all-encompassing and intuitive Razer Synapse 3 software, the keyboard on the new Razer Blade Stealth employs merely one zone of lighting, to which you can assign your pick of 16.8 million colors. Now made entirely of glass, the touchpad is larger, too, and it notably supports Microsoft Precision for improved accuracy.

The Razer Blade Stealth comes with variety of connectivity options which include Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C), USB-C 3.1 Gen 2, two USB-A, and a 3.5mm audio combo port. The included Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) port features 4 lanes of PCIe for up to 40 Gbps of fast transfer speeds.

In 2019, the Razer Blade Stealth remains thin and light, measuring in at just 0.58 inches high and between 2.82 pounds and 3.04 pounds depending on the configuration. Razer has included four upward-firing speakers equipped with a Smart Amp to boost audio with greater clarity.
