That said, there are reasons why someone might want Razer’s laptop instead. One is the built-in webcam. Another is the refined aesthetic, which is a hallmark of the Blade Stealth, including the chic colorful keyboard. And another is the form factor. At the end of the day, the Blade Stealth 13 is still the most portable gaming experience you can find. The G14 is a bit bigger and noticeably heavier. If you’d prefer to sacrifice some gaming performance in exchange for a laptop that’s exceptional in these areas, the Blade Stealth 13 is for you.

I really like this little laptop. If you are looking for something ultra-portable that plays games pretty well and you have the money to spend (and you don’t use the right shift key!), perhaps this Razer Blade Sealth 13 is the right model for you. On the other hand, this is expensive and has its quirks, that's why the Blade 15 remains the better value proposition if you're willing to opt for a slightly larger and heavier computer instead.

The Razer Blade Stealth 13 is perhaps the only ultrabook today to offer what I'd consider decent gaming performance. If you travel a lot, but can't bear to be away from your games, the Blade Stealth 13 may just be what you need. However, Razer isn't quite the first to attempt to make an ultraportable gaming machine. For one, there was the old Alienware m11x, a puny 11.6-inch laptop with a GeForce GT 540M. It turned out pretty good gaming numbers as well, for its time that is, but it was also a rather thick and heavy system.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q: Mid range dedicated graphics card for thin and light laptops based on the GTX 1650 but with reduced clock speeds and power consumption. Uses the Turing architecture (TU117 chip in 12nm FFN) but without Raytracing or Tensor cores.
With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.
i7-1065G7: Ice Lake-based quad-core processor for thin and light laptops. The four cores are clocked at 1.3 GHz to 3.9 GHz and should offer 18% more IPC (instructions per clock) than the previous generations (and therefore partly close the clock speed gap). Produced on first-gen 10 nm Intel process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Razer: Razer USA Ltd. is a US hardware manufacturer founded in 1998. The focus is on gaming devices as well as accessories, traditionally computer mice and mouse pads. The products are often named after mythical creatures or animals. However, Razer laptops are also offered under the series name "Blade". Razer has also released a VOIP software called Razer Comms.
80%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
