Razer today announced the Blade Stealth, its first ultrabook.
The Razer Blade Stealth has a very similar appearance to its bigger siblings and features a CNC-milled aluminum body. It is only 0.52-inches thick and is pretty light as well, weighing in at 2.75 lbs. The ultrabook comes with a 12.5-inch display, with two panel options. The base configuration includes a QHD 2560 x 1440 panel while the optional panel offers 4K resolution and covers the entire Adobe RGB color gamut.
Under its hood, the Blade Stealth packs an Intel Core i7 6500U Skylake dual-core processor clocked at 2.5GHz (3.1GHz Turbo Boost). In terms of storage, the QHD model is offered with 128GB or 256GB PCIe SSD while the 4K model can be configured wither either 256GB or 512GB of PCIe storage. Both models feature 8GB of LPDDR3-1866 RAM, with no optional upgrade available. Connectivity wise, the ultrabook offers two USB 3.0 ports and a single USB 3.1 Type-C port with Thunderbolt 3 support.
Now let’s talk about the Razer Core. It is basically an external GPU dock which allows you to connect any desktop GPU up to 375W TDP and enjoy high-performance gaming on the Blade Stealth. It connects using the USB Type-C port and includes four USB 3.0 ports and Gigabit Ethernet. It also allows you to hook up to an external display.
The Razer Blade Stealth will be available starting today with prices starting at $999 for the QHD model. If you opt for the 4K model with 512GB of PCIe SSD storage, you will need to shell out $1599. Not bad at all.
