Bottom Line

The Razer Blade Stealth QHD is an elegant ultrabook that weighs in at under 3 pounds, yet sports powerful hardware and a brilliant touchscreen display.

The Razer Blade Stealth QHD is a sleek and powerful ultrabook from one of the biggest names in the gaming industry. While the rest of the Blade range caters to the gaming community, the Stealth is taking Razer into the business world. Sporting a 6th generation Intel Core i7 processor and 8GB of RAM, the Stealth has more than enough power to deal with everyday business tasks. And when combined with Razer’s new external graphics amplifier, users can experience a rich gaming experience on either the UHD or QHD display options. The small 128GB solid state drive is a drawback as newer gaming titles are ever increasing in size. Overall the Razer Stealth is a sleek ultrabook that can work hard and party even harder.

    The Razer Blade Stealth offers better specs for less money than the competition, and includes features others lack, such as a high-res touch screen and full-size USB ports. The design is slick, the price is right, but it's not as slim and portable as other 12-inch laptops.

    The Razer Blade Stealth is a high-end Ultrabook trying to upset the status quo currently lead by the likes of Lenovo, Asus, Apple and Dell. While Razer is a gaming brand, this isn't a gaming laptop; it instead matches the specifications of the work-focused Dell XPS 13.

    With Intel Kaby Lake inside, the Razer Blade Stealth remains one of the prettiest, most powerful ultraportables on the market, but it could still use more battery life.
