Razer Blade Stealth late 2016, 1TB


Less than one year later, we have a modest update to the Stealth, with a new low-voltage Core i7 processor (part of Intel's seventh-generation of Core i-series chips , and optimized for high-res and 4K video playback) and claims of better battery life....

The Razer Blade Stealth includes a Core i7 processor and high-res touchscreen even in its lowest-end configuration; it has more ports than other 12-inch laptops and a fun Chroma backlit keyboard.

It's bigger and heavier than 12-inch laptops from Apple, Asus and others. The thick bezel around the screen feels dated and configuration options are limited.

The Razer Blade Stealth offers better specs for less money than the competition, and includes features others lack, such as a high-res touch screen and full-size USB ports. The design is slick, the price is right, but it's not as slim and portable as...

Razer Blade Stealth (late 2016) Review : Still the anti-MacBook Boss


When I reviewed the original Razer Blade Stealth earlier this year, I suggested it was the "true MacBook alternative". I stand by that claim, and go one further: Razer has out-done Apple in one key area. At a time when Apple is taking upwards 2-3 years...

Keyboard is comfortable and customizable with Chroma ; Comes in black ; Relatively light and thin ; Robust and hearty feel

WIthout Razer Core, remains less than AAA gaming powerful ; USB-C power port makes tripping easy ; Bezel is big (but not terribly so) ; Razer logo still over-the-top for a laptop not explicitly gaming-aimed

Razer Blade Stealth (Late 2016, Kaby Lake i7) Review and Ratings


With a "Kaby Lake" CPU and a slightly bigger battery, Razer's updated ultraportable remains a solid value at its $999 starting price—but the competition's toughening up and slimming down.

Slim and solidly built ; Attractive QHD touch screen ; Roomy, per-key RGB keyboard ; Improved performance and battery life over previous model ; Excellent speakers

Big LCD bezel ; Larger and heavier than competing ultraportables ; Battery life could be better

If you're in the market for a new slim-but-powerful laptop with a touch screen and full-size ports, the updated Blade Stealth is hard to argue against, particularly if you like flashy, colorful keyboards. That's doubly true if you also want something...
