When Razer announced the Book 13 late last year, the maker made available 256 GB SKUs with the promise of 512 GB options at a later date. Of course, users could have always bought the 256 GB version anyway and then upgraded the M.2 drive themselves, but many may have simply preferred a straightforward 512 GB SKU instead. The announcement today finally addresses this concern by making available the promised 512 GB option for a price of just under $1700 USD.

Razer says the new SKU is "perfect for users requiring an increased amount of local storage for documents, presentations, and other media".

Other than the storage update, the rest of the system remains identical including the 13.4-inch FHD touchscreen, 11th gen Core i7-1165G7 CPU, and 16 GB of non-removable RAM. Note that the 512 GB SKU is currently only $100 more than the 256 GB SKU when all else is equal. Newer competing subnotebooks like the MSI Summit E13 Flip or Vaio Z come with even faster PCIe 4.0 slots to support up to twice the SSD transfers rates than the current Book 13 iteration.

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.
