Razer's Blade Stealth and 'Core' add up to the gaming laptop I always wanted

 

The Razer Core allows you to easily upgrade the Blade Stealth into a gaming powerhouse, but it won't make the most of your desktop GPU.

Fast performance ; More RAM than the last-gen model ; Excellent touch display ; Plays high-end games with external GPU dock

Disappointing battery life ; No memory card reader

The Razer Blade Stealth initially caught my eye for its potential to fulfill a long-dormant dream: a portable, powerful laptop that could borrow the power of a desktop-class graphics card to transform into a gaming powerhouse. I've waited decades to...

Razer's Blade Stealth gaming ultraportable is all work and no play

 

Razer's first gaming ultrabook suffers from the sin of ambition: It's a beautiful machine with a gorgeous display, powerful processor and incredible potential -- but middling battery life and the absence of its companion GPU dock leave it feeling...

Thin, light and well designed ; Razer finally did away with its mushy mouse buttons ; Fast performance ; Stunning 4K display

Disappointing battery life for an ultraportable ; Can't play high-end PC games without Razer Core accessory ; External GPU docking station not available at launch

The Stealth reminds me of Razer's first gaming laptop . It's well designed and competitively priced but maybe a little too ambitious for its own good. By shooting for the moon to create the "ultimate Ultrabook," Razer kitted out the Stealth with...

Razer's Blade Stealth Ultrabook confidently treads unexplored territory, but its gaming roots may hold it back.

New Razer Blade Stealth (Intel Core i7, QHD Touch, Late 2016)

 

Super sleek, delivering top-notch performance and battery life, and loaded with useful extras, the Kaby Lake CPU–equipped Razer Blade Stealth ultraportable laptop is even better than its highly rated predecessor.

Sleek design with premium materials. New Intel Kaby Lake processor for class-leading performance. Vibrant high-resolution touch display. Improved battery life over previous Stealth.

Key travel is a bit shallow.

The New Razer Blade Stealth is stylish, thin, and faster than before, with a measurably longer battery to boot. It's an all-around upgrade—there's no reason to buy the previous model now (except perhaps for a slashed price)—and there are more...

Razer Blade Stealth review: A fully equipped, great-looking laptop for less than you'd think

 

The new Stealth offers a Core i7 CPU, high-res touchscreen and colorful backlit keyboard at a fantastic value.

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, 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....

Razer Blade Stealth review: This is a feisty ultrabook at an incredibly low price

 

The Razer Blade Stealth is not a gaming laptop.

Thunderbolt 3 USB-C charging capability ; Sleek aluminum chassis ; Out-specs all similarly priced competitors ; First laptop with per-key RGB lighting

Shorter battery life ; Stock USB-C charging cable is flimsy

Razer's first foray into non-gaming hardware manages to outshine most of the established competition, and it's (surprise!) affordable too.

Razer Blade Stealth (QHD)

 

Razer's Blade Stealth (QHD) isn't capable of high-end gaming without the company's forthcoming external graphics amplifier, but its top-notch design and performance still make it our top pick for midrange ultraportables.

Premium, compact build. Sharp QHD touch display. First individually backlit RGB keys on a notebook. Fast performance.

Keys are shallow. Battery life is a bit short for an ultraportable laptop.

Conclusion The Razer Blade Stealth (QHD) features fast performance and a top-notch display packed into a premium, compact body. Though it isn't capable of serving as a dedicated gaming laptop without the Razer Core, it's an excellent ultraportable in...

Razer Blade Stealth (256GB, UHD)

 

This is not exactly a slim-at-all-costs high-fashion ultrabook. Nor is it a gaming laptop, despite Razer's years of experience in the PC gaming biz. It's an amalgam of many different ideas about what a high-end ultrabook-style laptop should be,...

The Razer Blade Stealth is slimmer and lighter than similar laptops from Dell and Apple. Even the base model includes a Core i7 processor and fun Chroma backlit keyboard, and future expansion via an external graphics box for gaming is promising.

Battery life takes a nosedive with the 4K screen. The promised add-on gaming module still has no price or release details.

The Razer Blade Stealth is a rare mix of slick design, great performance and top-notch value in a laptop -- but the great-looking 4K screen on the top-end model takes a major hit on battery life.
