Razer’s TINY Gaming Laptop

by birtanpublished on October 3, 2020

This is a very small gaming laptop it's a 13-inch device rocking a GTX 16:50 it's the new Razer Blade stealth and they've managed to make an incredibly small package I can you compare this to their 15-inch razor blade this is already a very small 15-inch gaming laptop and you compare it just the footprint it is like it's tiny it's super small in comparison now it's not going to be the world's most powerful gaming laptop right it obviously has limitations because of its size but this is a very strong performer considering how small this device is and actually don't think there are other 13-inch

Devices out there right now that has a gtx 1650 now the external shell of the razer blade stealth this year it has not changed it just looks exactly the same as the previous generation in terms of its aesthetics it's like half a millimeter thicker it's got this well-built black aluminum chassis and it's got the triple headed snake logo up top it is a very nice looking laptop like razors laptops tend to have this particular design aesthetic and this thing just follows suit it's not super thin though right keep in mind that Razer built this thing

To have a little bit of room in there so we can cool the components properly it's still very thin and portable but it's not like this paper-thin ultrabook okay inside pop this open real quick you have replaceable SSD and a replaceable Wi-Fi card your RAM is soldered on you can't replace that the battery down here it's the same size as previous year it's a seven hour battery so this is running a 1080p screen if you get the 4k screen it's probably a little bit less than that but on the 1080p screen around 7 hours and that's what the regular integrated GPU now powering the system

Is a 100 watt AC adapter and there's good things and bad things to that so the good thing is that it's got plenty of power there's some older generations of razor blades Stealth's that used a smaller AC adapter I think was 65 watts and there were times when you would be running the system really heavily and that AC adapter wouldn't be able to power the system properly so that is no longer an issue because it's got 100 watts piping into this the unfortunate thing is there are very few monitors out there that can pipe a hundred watts overpowered

Every to power this laptop so if you're someone that wants to have a single cable set up where you just have your monitor and a single USBC cable that connects your laptop to juice everything up there's like two or three monitors out there that can do it okay let's talk about performance this is running the 10th gen Intel CPU so these are quad-core CPUs with incredibly long names they can't sustain boost clock for a particularly long time for gaming it's not too big of an issue a lot of games don't press the CPU that hard so you're getting pretty good frame weights for

Low to moderate ly demanding games but one thing I did notice is that this is running a gtx 1650 max-q and if you look at their website there's no mention that it is a max Q GPU that comes on the razor blade stealth so I think some people may be misled by that I feel like razors should be more clear that it is kind of like the lower powered and lower performing version of the 1650 but it is still a very solid performer considering it's a 13-inch device now if you were looking at the razor blade stealth as a potential video editing machine if you're working with 1080p footage sure

But still for 4k footage the performance isn't there especially when compared to kind of like the big boy 15-inch devices and it mostly just comes down to CPU like these things just have much more power hungry CPUs that can process a lot more information this thing is running a much lower wattage chip now if the advantage to that is thermals the temperatures on this device are excellent like really really good I think most of it is Intel CPU that 10th turnip is quite powerful but it's also the thermal solution here the cooling is done quite well a lot of the other

Components on the inside of the laptop haven't changed compared to the most recent iteration of the stealth but I'll go through them real quick the screen is still running that 13 inch screen it's pretty bright and color accuracy is good enough it has a 60 Hertz refresh rate so it won't look as fluid as some other high-end 15-inch gaming laptops they do offer this model in a 4k version but having used a lot of 13-inch devices in both 1080p and 4k like my recommendation for most people is to stick with 1080p even if you do content creation and you kind of rely on color accuracy it's just

That the 4k panels they suck up more juice and it's almost too pixel dense like a 1080p screen at 13 inches is already quite sharp the speakers on the side sound pretty good most the comes from the bottom of the speaker where the cadets are the upper portion of this mesh is just a mesh of Lies I don't think there's anything underneath this part of it the keyboard and the trackpad also remain unchanged they're good like actually really like the keyword I've gotten used to razors keyboards over the past year because I use the regular blade so much I still

Don't like the bottom right shift key though if you're someone who actually uses that shift key for anything like shift question mark or just when you regularly type you're gonna have to get used to this layout but if the rest of this keyboard is quite solid it does only have single zone RGB so the entire keyboard has to be one color you can switch it to whatever color you want but if you're used to razors like crazy RGB customization you only get one color at a time right now the trackpad is also really nice it's got the smooth glass surface and it's got winners precision

Drivers so they're tracking experience is solid the overall device is on points like there's very little I dislike about this machine especially considering how powerful it is for a 13-inch device however we have not talked about its price point and therein lies the rub this is a very expensive device it starts at $1,800 for the GTX 1650 equipped version and I'll let that sink in 1800 US dollars now last year I did a video on the 2018 razor blade stealth and I said that device was too expensive because there were competitors on the market that were selling something

Similar like similarly configured for a few hundred dollars cheaper this year however there is no competitor no one else is making a 13-inch device with a GTX 1615 it so as expensive as this thing is they're really the only people with this product so in theory they can charge whatever they want and that's kind of how Razer does their stuff sometimes like when they have a unique product that no one else has they jack up the price it's kind of like their monitor I showed it a couple times in this video the Razer Raptor it's a very aesthetically pleasing device it's got

These green cables that no other monitor has it's got this look that is super unique it's very iconic to Razer but it's expensive that things 700 bucks it's a good monitor but you are paying a bit of a premium just to have that design aesthetic and the same thing applies here you can't get this anywhere else so if you have the money I don't think you'll be disappointed it does offer a very unique experience and it's a good one but if you're in a budget this is clearly not a value oriented device okay

Hope you guys enjoyed this video thumbs if you liked it subs if you'd love to see you guys next time you
