Reviews for the Razer Book 13 FHD

86.6% Razer Book 13 Core i7 Laptop Review: Like an XPS 13, But Faster | Notebookcheck
The Book 13 combines the design philosophy and performance of a Blade Stealth with the 16:10 display of a Dell XPS 13 for an impressive piece of hardware. Office users who want something more stylish than the typical Dell, HP or Lenovo will certainly find themselves drawn to the new Razer subnotebook.
Razer Book 13 Review

Our final decision would come down to this. If thinness and portability are big concerns for you, the Razer Book 13 might not be it. However, if you're fine sacrificing some of that for big performance gains and solid build quality, you'll be very happy with the Book 13.

The Razer Book 13 is one of the most powerful Windows Ultrabooks available, flaunting some serious style with its skinny screen bezel. But the extravagant price for this laptop is hard to swallow, especially with stingy SSD storage and the omission of a fingerprint scanner.

Razer Book 13 review: A slick laptop with a disappointing keyboard
Source: Good Gear Guide English
If not for the keyboard, our complaints about the Razer Book 13 would be relatively minor: Storage is skimpy unless you spring for the 4K version, there’s no fingerprint reader, and speaker quality could be better. While the laptop is pricey given its tech specs, paying more for slick design and no bloatware isn’t an outrageous prospect. Paying more despite a subpar keyboard, however, is a much tougher sell.

If not for the mushy keyboard, our complaints about the Razer Book 13 would be relatively minor. We wouldn't even mind paying more for slick design and no bloatware, especially given the solid overall performance. Paying more despite a surprisingly subpar keyboard, however, is a much tougher sell.

Now that you've finished this Razer Book 13 review, you can see why it's a very good laptop, and why Razer is getting into the productivity laptop space. Its minimalist aesthetic is appealing, its performance is snappy and its endurance is pretty damn long. If only its price weren't hundreds higher.

The New Razer Book 13 Is A Premium Laptop With A Price To Match
Source: Reviewed.com English
The Book 13's flaws are not deal-breakers by any means. Its performance doesn’t live up to the examples above, but it’s still powerful enough to pull its weight in programs like Adobe Premiere. It’s still a good laptop, but there are better laptops for the money. If you find the Razer Book 13 on sale for $200 to $300 off, then it's a much more attractive laptop—and the best news is Razer often has sales. Otherwise, I'd pick up a different ultrabook or even the slightly more expensive Razer Blade Stealth 13, a gaming laptop with an ultrabook's spirit.

85% Razer Book 13 review: A premium laptop that costs a bit too much
Source: Neowin English
First of all, the Razer Book 13 is an awesome laptop. It has a clean design and premium build quality that's always a pleasure to use. It's also got a lovely RGB keyboard, super-narrow bezels around the 16:10 display, and great performance from Intel's 11th-generation processors and Iris Xe graphics.

90% Razer Book 13 (2020) review
Source: Techradar English
The Razer Book 13 is Razer's first productivity laptop and given the company's reputation as one of the premier gaming system and peripheral makers, their first Ultrabook for the office has no right being this good. From its excellent starting price, to its performance, to its incredible design and build quality, our only complaints are that its battery life falls just short of being the best-in-class and it can run a little hot, so we can't outright call it perfect.

The Razer Book 13 is an excellent Windows 10 productivity laptop that gets just about everything right, from the quality of the display to the specs and performance. This is a genuine rival to the 13-inch MacBook Pro and the Dell XPS 13 – it really is that good.

Ultimately, the Razer Book 13 is an impressive new laptop from Razer with a lot to like, and I’m sure many customers will be happy with it. But those trade-offs mean I can’t quite call it the best product for most people.

90% Razer Book 13 review: Great little work laptop with some personality
Source: CNet English
Even though Razer's laptops are generally built for gaming, we regularly recommend them to anyone looking for a high-performance Windows laptop with MacBook-like design and build quality. The Razer Book 13 takes the Razer design we love but skips the gaming vibe altogether (well, almost) and aims for office and school use instead.

Razer Book 13 Review

The Book 13 is a close relative to the Blade Stealth and both have anodized aluminum casings and excellent build quality. The Razer Book comes in a chill Mercury White color and it has a Razer Chroma per key RGB backlit keyboard. The full HD and 4K display options are excellent and target content creators. The laptop competes with the Dell XPS 13 and 13” MacBook Pro. Pricing starts at $1,200.

Razer Book 13 Honest Review: The ALMOST Perfect Laptop..
Source: Max Tech English
Razer's previous laptops like their Blade Stealth were great.. but they definitely has some issues and downsides compared to other Windows laptops. For example, the 16:9 display wasn't great for web browsing.. and it made the bezels look very weird.. But the Razer Book 13 fixes that issue! The build quality is incredible, and the performance is very consistent. However, there is one issue that is really hard to ignore.

If you like Razer products and want something that you plan on using for normal day to day tasks, the Razer Book 13 is a pretty nice choice. The main highlights are the screen options, solid performance for what this is, long battery life, good input devices, and the excellent build quality. At the same time, this is an expensive ultrabook, especially the 4K model, and not without some quirks. I'll get in-depth in the review down below.

However, the Razer Book 13 does have a few flaws, such as a sluggish SSD and a somewhat heavy chassis. If you’re looking for a laptop with better performance and battery life, you’ll want to check out the $1,899 Apple MacBook Pro (13-inch, M1). Or if you’re a Windows 10 fan, the $999 Asus ZenBook 13 UX325EA might be more your flavor. But if you’re looking for a non-gaming Razer laptop packing impressive power, the Razer Book 13 is a must-have.

If you like the Blade Stealth 13's premium build quality and design but don't need its game-worthy graphics, the Razer Book 13 is an impressive productivity partner. It's light and thin, offers a gorgeous display, and sports a mature all-silver look. The inclusion of USB-A and HDMI, as well as Thunderbolt 4/USB-C ports, is a strong point in its favor, and the per-key RGB lighting is a fun, unique extra in a machine of its kind.
