Price and Availability

The Intel 8th Gen Razer Blade Stealth is out in North America now, priced $1,699. The laptop arrives in Europe (including the UK) later this year; UK and Euro prices, however, are unknown.

In contrast, the US price puts the Razer Blade Stealth in a similar bracket to the 14-inch Razer Blade Pro. The Razer Blade, though, features a GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card. Therefore, you’re mostly playing for the Stealth’s low-profile. Even so, I’m sure many professionals will see this as a fair trade-off. However, gamers are best advised to opt for the Blade Pro over its Stealthy sibling.
