Better, Sleeker and Thinner Blade Stealth
Razer has released plenty of products this year, but they are not done yet. Their latest announcement is the launch of the new Razer Blade Stealth 13 laptop.
It improves upon previous Blade Stealth offerings with faster hardware and a thinner display. In fact, the 13.3″ laptop only as a 4.9mm thin near-edge bezel. That is up to 60% less than the previous generation. So there is more room for gaming and less room for borders.
What Features Does the Blade Stealth 13 Have?
These new Blade Stealth 13 laptops come equipped with NVIDIA GeForce MX150 4GB GPU. That is in combination with Intel’s Whisky Lake Intel Core i7 processor.
As for the display, users can opt for up to 3840 x 2160 (4K UHD) resolution with touch functionality and supports 100% sRGB color space. The display is also available in a Full HD matte (1920 x 1080) resolution with 100% sRGB color space coverage.
For additional security and convenience, the Razer Blade Stealth comes with a IR web camera that supports Windows Hello. This is a first for the Razer Blade family.
Furthermore, the Blade Stealth also retains the ideal web camera placement at the top of the screen to avoid awkward shots like the DELL XPS13.
