Reviews for the Razer Blade Stealth i7-8565U

87.5% Razer Blade Stealth (i7-8565U, GeForce MX150) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
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.

Razer Blade Stealth (2019)
Source: PC Mag English
Razer's 2019 Blade Stealth ultraportable, a smart refinement of its excellent predecessor, packs a sharp redesign, a new dedicated graphics option, and a strong supporting feature set.

Razer modernizes its 2019 13-inch Blade Stealth for both work and play
Source: CNet English
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.

NVIDIA GeForce MX150: Pascal GP108 based laptop graphics card and mobile version of the desktop GeForce GT 1030. Offers 384 shader cores and usually 2 GB GDDR5 with a 64 Bit memory bus. Manufactured in 14nm. With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
8565U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4.6 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
13.3":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


Razer: Razer USA Ltd. is an American hardware manufacturer founded in 1998. The focus is on gaming devices as well as accessories; traditionally computer mice. The products were often named after fables or animals. However, Razer also offers laptops under the series name "Blade".

There are reviews on the Razer Blade series since 2013, but not overly many. The market share in the laptop market is low and the ratings are average (as of 2016).


81.5%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
