Razer’s new Blade Stealth gaming ultrabook has more than meets the eye


Razer’s latest addition to their Blade series of gaming laptops, dubbed the Razer Blade Stealth employs an interesting design concept that lets you tailor it for a paper-crunching slogfest or a zombie curbstomping Left 4 Dead extravaganza.


On its own the Razer Blade Stealth is a notebook with a 12.5-inch QHD (2,560 x 1,440 pixels) 234ppi display packing a Skylake Intel Core i7-6500U processor, 8GB RAM and your choice of either a 128GB or 256GB SSD along with a backlit keyboard in a chassis that is 13.1mm thin and weighs 1.25kg. In this mode it’s essentially a sexy looking all-black ultrabook.

Latch it onto the Razer Core graphics dock, which can accept almost any desktop-class graphics card via a Thunderbolt 3 connection and you have a full-fledged gaming desktop. There’s no price yet for the Razer Core but the Blade Stealth starts from US$999 (MYR$ 4418). Pony up a bit more cash to the tune of US$1,399 (MYR$ 6187) and you can snag an upgraded version of the Stealth with a 4K resolution display that displays 100 percent of the Adobe RGB colour gamut (the US$999 stock Blade Stealth displays 70%) with either a 256GB or 512GB SSD (US$1,599/MYR$ 7072).
