An improvement on the previous generation, but that 12.5-inch screen stops this Blade from gleaming.

The Core i5 Blade Stealth's specs may not be out of the ordinary, but it's rare to get them in such a high-quality compact build for this price. It's a very appealing value given that it stacks up to more expensive machines pretty nicely, and you don't especially notice compromises in any area. The sleek look and features like USB 3.0 ports and customizable keys are still present, with speed that can get through any normal tasks. If you're looking to cut down on cost you should highly consider this configuration of the Blade Stealth. A Core i7 processor is never going to hurt, though, so if you plan to do more intensive work, and have $100 more to spend, the Core i7 New Blade Stealth is an excellent choice. The beautifully constructed Dell XPS 13 Touch is another top configurable option.
