...Razer is certainly on the right track with the Blade Stealth.
The Razer Blade Stealth offers an intriguing prospect to the well-heeled gamer who wants a light, capable ultrabook for the day and aa gaming machine by night.
Razer gets the ultrabook part mostly right. Slim, well built and now featuring solid on-the-go life from a larger-capacity battery, this machine features a very good touchscreen that's only compromised by being overly reflective and, subjectively, with bezels that take away from the overall aesthetic.
The companion Core enclosure connects to the Stealth via Thunderbolt 3. Easy as pie to connect but potentially compromised by the lack of performance from the Core chip, it's a well-executed concept that is perhaps better suited to the more powerful, bigger Blade laptops.
Razer is certainly on the right track with the Blade Stealth. A couple of tweaks - an edge-to-edge display, for example - would take it from good to great.
Sleek, attractive design
Thin, light and highly portable
Core adds potential
Fast NVMe M.2 SSD
Bezel is large and noticeable
CPU not powerful enough for Core

The Razer Blade Stealth is available to buy from the Razer Store.
