Razer Blade Stealth 13 Design

Razer Blade Stealth 13 Design

The design of the Razer Blade Stealth is as of 2019. Both configurations do not wear a slim black aluminum frame. 

It’s a great laptop, carefully treading the line between the stylish Ultrabook and the exciting gaming system.

Although RGB lighting is located underneath the keyboard, which can be customized to your preferences with the amazing Razer Synapse software, Stealth boasts a simple look that does not appear in its place in the office.

Keyboard and Touchpad

In the 2020 model, razer finally fixed the thing that i had the biggest complaint last year about, it was the shift key. 

The previous 2019 right shift key was so small. that if you’re a right shifter like me, you would constantly make typos. 

this year they fixed it and typing on this keyboard is so much better, it’s like night and day. the touchpad is the same.

It’s a little heavy but it’s a fantastic touchpad, and of course you get one zone of RGB lighting which you can change to any colour you want.

Razer Blade Stealth 13 Ports

The ports I have on this version are identical to last year’s model. On the left side there is a USB Type-C port and a USB Type-A port.

Also, there is a bundled audio jack. The left USB-C port supports the video out (with compatible dongle) using DisplayPort-over-USB and you can use it to charge the system.

On the right side it is home to the USB-C and USB-A ports, but there is no audio jack. But also, the right USB-C connection provides Thunderbolt 3 support. (This port can also charge the laptop.) And in my personal thread I appreciate any small laptop including USB-A and USB-C.

Razer Blade Stealth 13 Speakers

the speakers on this are fantastic, they’re not going to beat out a MacBook Pro. but they’re still good nonetheless. so internally not much is upgradeable.

Display

If you’re looking at this computer, don’t bother getting the 4k model because I think at this screen size, it’s not really worth it. 

like you really can’t take advantage of 4k, but full HD 120 hertz is more than adequate. 

because this display is colour accurate enough and has that high refresh rate for gaming. 

it has Windows hello baked into the top and of course if you’re interested in seeing what the webcam looks like, it’s not the worst one I’ve used but it’s obviously not great.

Battery Life

there is a 53 watt hour battery, 6 hours of use before needing to charge with the screen running at 120 hertz, if you drop it down to 60 you will get better battery life.

Performance

Far Cry 5 is a built-in benchmark game that shows how the system copes with the gameplay in the real world in different settings.

We ran it at 1080p resolution in medium settings and best gaming quality (normal and premium for Far Cry 5 under DirectX 11).

We also tested Rise of the Tomb Raider, which we played in 1080

Also medium and very high and the results were impressive.

This productivity performance is special because the blades allow it to work 25 watts.

which means that more CPU power is being pushed which means that the clock speed should be higher for a longer period. 

Most Ultrabooks only work at 15W to keep them cooler because they do not have the heating or cooling solution that this laptop contains.

Overall

Blade Stealth 13 manufacturers for 2020 added a marked improvement over the previous, if not the design, model on performance.

The former has been improved and includes some new and useful features such as a more practical keyboard and a high refresh screen, while the overall muscles are approximately the same, or somewhat better than the previous model.

It is one of the best small portable devices with small screens on the market, and it is the only one that is considered as a laptop capable of playing fairly great.
