The Razer Blade family of laptops includes three models: the Blade Pro 17, the Blade 15 and finally the Blade Stealth 13. The number corresponds, you guessed it, to the size of the screen.
Each one corresponds to a different need, but keeps the same DNA and a fairly similar design. So it's a Razer Blade Stealth 13 laptop that's in our hands. A model intended for players, but also and above all for professional users looking for mobility.
The Razer Blade Stealth 13 laptop has an Intel Core ™ i7-8565U processor, an Intel UHD 620 (basic model) or NVIDIA GeForce® MX150 graphics part 4 GB (Graphics model) and 8 GB or 16 GB of memory DDR4. For the storage part, it is entrusted to a 256 GB SSD (M.2 SATA or PCIe).
It is therefore equipped with an Intel Core ™ i7-8565U processor (4 cores and 8 threads) and a graphics section including the Intel UHD 620 supported by a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce MX150 4 GB GDDR5 card .
We have no less than 16 GB of LPDDR3 memory at 2133 MHz and an M.2 PCIe SSD of 256 GB .
The cardboard box of this laptop is all black, very basic and even frankly very ordinary. But hey we don't care. Inside we find framed in black foam, a black box, branded with the Razer snake, containing the Blade Stealth 13 laptop in question.
On the side is a box in which you will find the charger, received in American socket for our part.
We will see below that it is a US version with QWERTY keyboard.
At the bundle level we will find:
There is no denying, this Razer Blade Stealth 13 laptop plays in elegance and sobriety. All dressed in black, he will undoubtedly please the target clientele, the professionals.
No fuss, no extravagance, only a discreet logo placed on the top of the laptop will note that we are at Razer's. The chassis is in CNC milled monochrome aluminum with an anodized black finish.
The 13 ″ Full HD screen is very good, and Razer even took care to individually calibrate these screens at the factory. Which should mean excellent color rendering. At the back we discreetly find the Razer logo, black on black.
Let’s go to the left and right side of the laptop where all the connectors are located. And it will be fast, it's so light. All in all, this is limited to a Thunderbolt ™ 3 port (USB-C ™) serving as a power port, a USB-C 3.1 port also serving as a power port and two USB 3.1 Type ports. -AT. Without forgetting an audio jack.
The keyboard is backlit and you have the option to choose the color. As you can see, our copy is a US version with a QWERTY keyboard.
Cooling is entrusted to tubular radiators and two small fans that we see (and hear) below the laptop. They have a hard time containing the heat given off.
We recall that our model has an Intel Core i7-8565U processor accompanied by an Nvidia MX150 graphics card .Below we think that it is sorely lacking grids allowing the air to circulate well. And for most observers, it's difficult not to leave fingerprints on the hull.
A webcam sits at the top of the screen, and good surprise, because it is infrared. So certainly, the definition is limited (1280 x 720 pixels), but it remains correct.
But hey you have to be a good player, everything is not negative in this laptop and fortunately. First of all, Razer offers us a magnificent toy in a beautiful setting. The Blade Stealth 13 is rather sober and elegant in a very black livery. The materials used are of good quality, even if we regret that the shell quickly takes fingerprints.
The keyboard is pleasant to use, moreover it is RGB but remains soft and it brings just the right touch of fun. The screen is of good quality, with good brightness and good color rendering, it is appreciable to work well.
We remind you that our Razer Blade Stealth 13 Graphics PC has an Intel Core i7-8565U processor , an NVIDIA MX150 4 GB graphics card , 16 GB of DDR3 memory , a 256 GB M.2 Lite On SSD NVMe , and a battery of autonomy announced up to 13 hours accompanied by a charger of 65 W max.
You have to be honest, the MX150 will have a little trouble accompanying you in games of gourmet video games. This laptop is made for work, games are purely incidental.
Even with 256 GB it may seem light, but with breathtaking performance. Not only will your PC start up quickly, but programs will have no problem opening quickly and being very responsive to give you good productivity.
