Razer's new Blade Stealth gaming ultrabook has more than meets the eye 1


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).
