The Blade Stealth is the fastest laptop we've tested with GeForce MX150 graphics and now it costs about the same as most other Ultrabooks with no dedicated graphics at all. If you're in the market for an Ultrabook with more graphical oomph, then it may be worth considering the Razer.

It's no secret that Razer laptops are typically pricier than alternatives from HP, Dell, Asus, or others spec-for-spec. The Blade Pro 17 RTX 2080 Max-Q, for example, costs hundreds more than the Lenovo Legion Y740-17ICH even though both come equipped with the same GPU. The best time to buy a Razer is therefore during a sale when the manufacturer is attempting to clear stock.

The latest Razer sale takes $500 off the 13.3-inch Blade Stealth Whiskey Lake-U range for a final price of $1000 to $1400. The deal is particularly notable because it involves the latest Blade Stealth model and not some older outdated SKU. The popular configuration with full-power 25 W GeForce MX150 graphics, 256 GB SSD, and 16 GB of RAM, for example, is only $1100 right now to be more in line with other flagship Ultrabooks in terms of price like the HP Spectre 13, Dell XPS 13, or Asus ZenBook 13 series.

The sale comes in the midst of the official launches of both the Intel Ice Lake-U and Comet Lake-U series to suggest that Razer might have something up its sleeve in the near future. In the meantime, check out our full review on the Whiskey Lake-U Blade Stealth here and the official product page here. We recommend buyers to check for these abnormalities that we experienced on our own Blade Stealth unit or to purchase the extended warranty just in case.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
