Razer Blade Stealth UHD i7-6500U

One of the things that Razer has going for is its aesthetically pleasing hardware. One of their latest products, the Razer Blade Stealth is an undeniably solid and beautiful product that aims to compete with other Ultrabooks on the market. There are two model available, one with a QHD screen of 2560 x 1440 resolution and 128 GB/ 256 GB SSD option and the other one comes with a UHD display of 3840 x 2160 resolution plus the option to choose between 256 GB/ 512GB SSD. Both also comes with a whooping 8 GB dual-channel 1866 MHz RAM. Despite its light build, the Razer Blade Stealth is made using CNC aluminum with an excellent build quality. The processor is an 2.6 GHz dual-core Intel i7-6500U, which is about the best processor you can get that is fast without consuming much power. Its integrated graphic card, the Intel HD 520, is more than capable to give you Full HD experience. With angles up to 170°, the viewing is amazingly wide. Thanks to its aluminum chassis, the Razer Blade Stealth can withstand heat easily and despite its extremely packed build, it is surprisingly silent. Other hardware components such as Thunderbolt 3, USB 3.0, a multi-point touchscreen, a webcam, and HDMI are also included. One of its novel features is the anti-ghosting Chroma keyboard that comes with backlight, which can turn the Blade Stealth into a beautiful glowing beast in the dark.

83.4% Razer Blade Stealth Subnotebook Review | Notebookcheck
Extra sharp. Razer has honed its ultra-thin design philosophy even further to provide the sleekest 12.5-inch Ultrabook yet for just under $1000 USD. It's a genuinely compact notebook from a gaming-centric company that even non-gamers will want to consider purchasing.
100% Review: Razer Blade Stealth
Source: PC Authority English
This is the first ever laptop released by Razer that isn’t intended for gamers. There’s no discrete GPU, instead relying upon Intel’s integrated HD Graphics 520, which is basically only good enough for Candy Crush. No, Razer is intending this ultrabook to go head-to-head with the likes of Apple’s Macbook and Dells XPS 13… and it’s done a bloody good job in the process.

Despite all the good the Razer Blade Stealth has to offer, there are just a few nagging issues that prevent us from bestowing higher accolades upon it. Razer really needs to improve the display situation. We would honestly rather see a brighter 1080p panel, if that's what it takes, than the QHD display in its current state.

The Blade Stealth is an excellent ultrabook, even if that’s all you ever plan to use it for. I’m not a fan of the USB-C charger method, at least in its current (read: flimsy) incarnation, but otherwise this is a feisty machine at an incredibly low price—especially given the fact it’s, you know, made by Razer. We’ll be sure to test the Blade Stealth again when Razer gets around to releasing its Thunderbolt 3 graphics amplifier, the Razer Core, but suffice it to say the Stealth is a smart buy regardless of whether you want it for semi-mobile gaming in the future.

If you're looking for a powerful and long lasting Ultrabook, keep looking. The Stealth only delivers on half of its promise to be thin, yet powerful. This laptop needs a bit more refinement before it can swing with the big Ultrabook hitters, like the Dell XPS 13 and Lenovo Yoga 900. As a notebook alone, the Razer Blade Stealth is too short-lived, but with the Razer Core, there may be still be hope for this otherwise awesome gaming Ultrabook.

The Blade Stealth stole the show at CES 2016 for good reason. This sleek Ultrabook, Razer’s first, is beautifully designed. The black all-aluminum exterior is of very high quality, and blissfully simple in appearance. It’s one of the thinnest notebooks on the market at 0.52 inches. Combined with its scant 2.75 pound carry weight, this is a notebook you’ll want to take everywhere.

Who'd have thought that Razer would make a high end Ultrabook that's a comparative bargain? For $999 you get a lot of great hardware and specs-- a really lovely IGZO QHD display, fast storage and a very classy chassis that's sturdy too. You can even go for 4K if you like, though I think that's overkill for such a small display and it will make the Intel HD 520 work harder and reduce battery life.

Source: Wired Magazine English
The Stealth is, as its name implies, svelte enough, though a little heavier than its competitors. Where things falter a bit is pricing. The Stealth starts at $999, but our $1,399 configuration is clearly a bit on the spendy side. Razer’s reviewer’s guide compares the device to a couple of pricier, under-configured computers, including the MacBook Air and Dell XPS 13, but just look at the Stealth vs. the more applicable Yoga 900: The base model Yoga has the same CPU, RAM, and SSD, and similar LCD resolution as the Stealth, but costs $200 less.

As a first step into the mainstream ultrabook market, the Razer Blade Stealth is remarkable: It aims squarely at the category leaders and matches them in almost every point, while one-upping them with its kaleidoscopic keyboard—a gimmick, to be sure, but the most eye-catching one we've seen in a long time.

The Razer Blade Stealth (QHD) ($1,199 as tested) is a midrange ultraportable laptop with a sharp Quad High-Definition touch display and a premium, all-aluminum build. Like its higher-resolution-display brother, the $1399 Razer Blade Stealth (4K UHD), it features a sleek, lightweight design, fast performance, and the world's first RGB keyboard with per-key backlighting on a notebook. As is, it isn't suited to serious gaming, but you can add the upcoming Razer Core external graphics amplifier equipped with a desktop-class GPU. That way, it's a beefy gaming system at home, but can serve as a light, compact laptop on the road.

It's not a MacBook killer or an XPS slayer, but Razer has done an amazing job of combining its love of high-performance devices with a reasonable price. For $1,399, you get one of the most powerful Ultrabooks on the market and a simply stunning 4K display. And later this year, when the Stealth's graphics amplifier starts shipping, this device will transform into one formidable gaming machine.

A true MacBook alternative at last
Source: Slashgear English
The Razer Blade Stealth reminds us that Razer isn't just an up-and-coming notebook manufacturer anymore - they're squarely in position to take the throne. With wave after wave of Windows notebooks being made by all manner of manufacturer just not adding up to Apple's dominance of the notebook market over the past few years, it's not difficult to assume that the company may now just assume that no other company is up to the challenge.

For use as a travel laptop, I'd lean towards that QHD model, as the resolution is still more than high enough for something this size, plus it costs less and promises battery battery life. With a QHD display and 128GB of storage, it's a fantastic value if you're looking to hit that magic $999 number, and likely will run for significantly longer per charge, based on our previous experience with 4K vs. non-4K laptops.

For $999, the base model of the Razer Blade Stealth could be an excellent buy. It gets fast hardware, a QHD display, a Chroma keyboard and a nice trackpad, all tucked inside a compact and strongly built aluminum unibody. On the other side, you'll have to live with a shallow stroke keyboard and only average battery life, but I can live with these and overall I think this is for sure one of the best ultraportables available out there right now.

Naturally, this synchronised glowing makes the Blade Stealth and Razer Core pairing look sufficiently fearsome on any surface. I didn’t get an opportunity to test out the laptop's battery life – wait for the full review – but Razer tells me it will offer a minimum of six hours, although better longevity is being targeted.

Hands-On with Razer Blade Stealth and Razer Core

Razer is known for unveiling far-out gaming hardware concepts at CES, but this year's product reveal seems more practical. The Razer Blade Stealth is an Ultrabook, running an Intel Core i7 processor and integrated graphics. However, games can run on an external graphics card in the form of the Razer Core, which simply connects to the laptop over a Thunderbolt cable!

The new Blade Stealth is aggressively priced compared to most high-end ultrabooks on the market. Even when ignoring the $899.99 entry model with a Core i5 CPU, the $999.99 model is more affordable than many ultraportables like the HP Spectre, Lenovo Yoga 910 and Asus ZenBook 3, while packing better hardware. Dell has a competing $999.99 XPS 13 model but still can’t match the Razer Blade Stealth on hardware.

Source: Toptenreviews English
Razer is renowned for gaming systems, but this isn’t one. There’s no dedicated graphics processor. Instead, all the work is done by a brand new Intel Kaby Lake i7 processor. That’s right, even the basic model has an i7, but don’t get too excited – it only has two cores, and in our tests it performed to a similar level as the i5 in the MacBook Pro. That’s nothing to be ashamed of, and the built-in HD Graphics 620 GPU is enough for 4K video playback and light gaming.

80% Razer Blade Stealth review: An unusual gaming laptop to which you can attach an external PCI-e graphics card
Source: PC Advisor English
The Razer Blade Stealth is an accomplished little laptop that can sidle up to the flashiest ultraportable laptops without seeming like the weird gamer kid in the corner. It’s slim, it’s moody, and you can tweak its personality with the multi-colour keyboard backlight: pink on black is a strong look. Its 4K screen is stunning if you don’t mind ultra-energetic Adobe RGB-style colours and while battery stamina isn’t amazing, it roughly matches the new MacBook with OLED touch panel. It’s a shame the cost of making this a home gaming laptop with the Core attachment is quite so high, but the Razer Blade Stealth convinces as a pure and simple ultra-light style laptop too. Black is back for everyone tired of brushed aluminium and “rose gold”. We’d recommend buying the cheaper version than we’re actually reviewing unless you absolutely need loads of ultra-fast storage and a 4K display. While the Quad-HD version loses the immense colour saturation, it’ll still look sharp across 12.5 inches and at £999 is a solid deal.

The New Razer Blade Stealth is stylish, thin, and faster than before, with a measurably longer battery to boot. It's an all-around upgrade—there's no reason to buy the previous model now (except perhaps for a slashed price)—and there are more configuration options available if you'd like a ton of storage and a 4K display. If you want something that's thinner and more elegant, and you don't mind paying more money, the Asus ZenBook 3 is gorgeous and about as powerful as the Stealth, though it lacks the higher screen resolution and "fun" additions.

Razer Blade Stealth QHD i7-7500U

The Razer Blade Stealth is a thin Ultrabook built for gaming. At only 0.52 inch (1.32 cm) thin and 2.84 lbs (1.29 kg), the Razer Blade Stealth is extremely portable, making it the ultimate Ultrabook. It raises the standard for ultra-mobility and powerful Ultrabook performance. Besides black, the Stealth laptop is also available in a new gunmetal finish. Razer, at its core, is a gaming device manufacturer but the approach with the laptop is a departure from the norm: the company wants to meet the needs of an ‘urban professional’. Thus, the device does not have an aggressive build unlike the gaming-specific HP Omen or the Lenovo Y 520. The incredibly thin CNC aluminum chassis encases the latest 7th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, up to 16 GB of RAM and the most visually stunning 12.5” QHD high-resolution touch display available at a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. A user could have a GTX 1080 ti inside the supported EGPU. Along with dual-core processors, the standard 16 GB RAM is more than enough to run with a high-power graphics card. The storage range from 256 GB, 512 GB to 1 TB. The Blade's QHD display has a matte finish that's sharp and bright. Just because it's matte doesn't mean it's lackluster. The Blade's QHD screen displays clear details, vibrant colors and satisfying brightness. It's visible in direct sunlight and doesn't reflect a lot of ambient light in bright environments. It features wide viewing angles up to 178 degrees, high color saturation and displays content with striking clarity and accuracy. The 14-inch Razer Blade's keyboard is part of the company's Chroma line and is similar to other Razer laptop keyboards and standalone desktop keyboards. The Blade colorfully provides more backlighting flexibility and features than any other comparable laptop. The included Chroma app allows specific sections of the keyboard to be programmed to show different colors such as highlighting WASD keys in a different color than the rest of the keyboard. Built-in stereo speakers produce decent sound without much distortion at max volume. The top-mounted speakers aren't as loud but they are clear and crisp, with warm soundscapes during gameplay. The battery inside is 12,800 mAh, good for about a 40% charge on most laptops or juicing up a phone a couple times. It’s not an off-the-grid power replacement but should allow a user to last out the longest of plane flights. The Blade doesn't have a huge storage hard drive in its default configuration, but thanks to high-speed ports, using external storage isn't a big hassle. Quick transferring is available via the Thunderbolt 3 port and three USB 3.0 ports. There's no Ethernet port on this bad boy, which can be an issue if the user wants to download 25 GB or larger games from Steam or other online game stores. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

The Chroma keyboard brings a lot of personalization to Razer’s ultraportable, and Intel’s latest processor is fast enough to help you get your work done. The Stealth’s slim design, lack of dedicated graphics and solid machined aluminum construction means that this laptop is ready to take on the best Ultrabooks on the market.

We’re still very big fans of the latest incarnation of the Stealth, with the improved battery life and performance being its stand-out features. However, it’s now facing incredibly tough competition from the Acer Spin 7, which is thinner and convertible, though about 10% slower.

The $1,249 Razer Blade Stealth hovers on the brink of greatness. It's a simply gorgeous piece of machinery, accented by a lovely quad-HD display and a tantalizing Chroma keyboard. Then there's the Kaby Lake processor and integrated graphics, which deliver a one-two punch of overall performance and graphics prowess with a relatively speedy PCIe SSD.

Source: PC Mag English
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.

Dancing at two weddings with one laptop. With the Blade Stealth, Razer aims to attract gamers during the night and office workers during the day. In order to gain a performance increase compared to the predecessor, the Ultrabook is equipped with an i7-8550U of the 8th Intel generation. We took a look at the Kaby Lake refresh.

Razer Blade Stealth (2018) review: Near-perfection has its price
Source: Good Gear Guide English
It’s a great machine, though. Peerless, when it comes to the actual design itself. It’s a real pleasure to use the Blade Stealth, be it on a plane or just at home lounging on the couch. Durable enough to feel rugged and portable, but lightweight enough to make it worth carrying, I really love it.

My thoughts on the Blade Stealth have not changed since last time I reviewed this laptop: I like it a lot. The build quality is excellent and complemented well by the RGB keyboard and trackpad. The high resolution display and is good, bezel size is good. It’s also great to see the improved performance the Core i7-8550U provides, and unlike some other laptops I’ve reviewed, Razer’s cooling solution can keep the 15W CPU performing as expected.

The new Blade Stealth proves that not all GeForce MX150 GPUs are created equal. It's the fastest 13.3-inch Ultrabook we've tested with graphics performance just shy of a GTX 960M all in a sleek package the size of a MacBook Pro 13.

All of which means the Stealth 13 is a darned desirable as a luxury Ultrabook. Think of it in those terms and the moderate gaming ability as an extra rather than a core feature and its an appealing if pricey overall package.

It does preserve its portitude relative to other ultraportables, with two USB-A ports and two USB-C connections, one of which supports Thunderbolt. You'll still need to dongle it for HDMI and Ethernet, which dulls the luster a tiny bit for business use.
