There aren’t many windows laptops that are
lightweight, powerful and sexy. The Razer Blade Stealth is all three of those. And, it might even be a MacBook Pro killer. Let’s talk about design. It’s clearly inspired by the MacBook Pro. It’s made out of CNC aluminum and it’s anodized
in a very stealthy black finish. It’s rock solid. I actually dropped it off
my coffee table — no scratches whatsoever. There’s a 12.5 inch display, which is slightly
smaller than the MacBook Pro’s 13.3 inch display but it’s just as gorgeous. It comes in QHD. You can also upgrade that
to a 4K model. I’m testing the 4K version right now, but
to be honest, both models look fantastic. The screen is also a touch screen. So you
can use your finger to scroll, pinch to zoom, it’s really smooth, it’s really intuitive.
It’s just like a tablet. And check this out! A fully customizable backlit
keyboard. You can use the Razer configurator to customize it in up to 16.8 million different
colors, which is just wild. Right now it’s set to wave, but you can have
a ripple effect, you can have a spectrum. The keys themselves are very comfortable to
type on. There’s also a multi-touch trackpad below
the keyboard. It’s not terrible, but I’ve used better. On the side of the keyboard, you’ll find two
stereo speakers. So let me fire up my favorite song. Very crisp audio. I’m gonna crank this up
so you guys can hear how loud it can get. Really loud. There is a brand new, reversible USB type-c
port, as well as another USB 3.0 port, a headphone jack, and a HDMI port for outputting video. Despite its small size, the Blade Stealth
is actually really really powerful. It comes with the latest 6th gen Intel core i7 processors,
8GB of superfast ram. It comes with Intel HD 520 graphics, which
are integrated graphics so they’re not as powerful as discrete graphics. If you really want more performance, you will
have to buy the Razer Core. And the Core is an external GPU dock that houses up to two
discrete graphics cards. We don’t have any idea how much it’ll cost,
but my bet is it’s gonna be expensive. One really important thing when you’re considering
a laptop is battery life. In reality, I got about 4-5 hours of mixed usage. It’s pretty
solid. Overall, I think the Razer Blade Stealth is
a fantastic laptop. It’s a great alternative to a MacBook Pro, and with a starting price
of a thousand dollars, it’s a hell of a deal.

    Hey guys im here looking to get some opinions as to what kind of laptop i should buy for college this year. Now im divided between this and a regular Mac (not the air or the pro); keep in mind i am early in my research so these are the two i have found (feel free to leave me suggestions). Now ultimately the laptop is to be used for school work only, this is where the Mac comes in with its known longevity, but i just cant get over the thought of paying $1500+ to match the specs of the Razer, or should i not match the specs be stuck with a computer that i cannot play games like the Razer can having paid $1200. To truncate it i simply don't want to pay more than $600 on a machine that i can only do my work on and not being able to play games on the side (like the Razer can). I see the Razer as a good deal as it's sold me on it's multifunctional use (soft gaming like cs go, i.e and school work) and is only $300 above my price range of a work-only computer. Again feel free to leave me opinions over my rationale and suggestions for future research. Thanks

    They clearly went out of their way to make the styling unique and not like any Mac so I don't see why you would reduce it to that, but if you insist on trying to uphold your glorified Mac, I guess you could say the aluminum part makes it kinda similar. Other than that, tsk tsk.

    The Macbook 12 is going to replace the Macbook Air guaranteed. The Razer is a great ultrabook and so is the Macbook 12. I've never personally used touch screen on ANY laptop so that feature is moot for me. There is form and function advantages to every mobile device. The only thing that defeats the Razer is the integration of Windows 10. With as thin and light both of these machines are the i7 draws WAY more power than the Core M/M3 cpus in the Macbook 12s. I'm sure Apple designers had much debate on exactly WHICH cpu to put into the macbook 12 and settled on the more energy efficient of the lineup. They have the Macbook Pro models with much faster cpus but then are thicker and heavier to help with heat dissipation. Personally I think they made the correct choice with a little slower and heat friendly Core M/M3 over the Razer's i7. If I want a gaming Notebook I'll buy a 17" Asus or Gigabyte with a 980ti that weighs 10 lbs. Adding a $500 external gpu to an ultrabook just seems silly. The ultrabook is meant to be portable, and light for everyday use. Adding 6 pounds of accessories seems to defeat the intended purpose of it's design. IDK just my $.02.

    My old laptop died after 6 years of use and I'm looking for a new one. I'm eyeballing This one and the macbook pro retina 2016 these factors make it hard for me to decide

    A: Macbooks are great for productivity with pro software and battery is superior

    B: Stealth is cheaper and hardware is better but battery is worse from what I hear.

    I want to get a full day of battery on a laptop and while I don't need gaming as I have a desktop it would be nice but my main objective is to use the device for school and video editing (I stay at my college campus 7-9 hours a day and use a computer for 4 to 5 hours of it.

    I think a few things went wrong preparing for this review. 1) No mention of thunderbolt 3, just that it's reversible usb type c. 2) The dock can house up to TWO graphics cards? Nope, not the case. (would be amazing, but still no.) I'm not going to hate, it was a good video to watch, but I hope you'll fact check a little better next time.
