CNET First Look
The Razer Blade Stealth is a slim 4K laptop with a trippy custom backlit keyboardPacked with features and smartly designed, this may be one of the best laptops you can buy starting under $1,000.
[MUSIC] The Razor Blade [UNKNOWN] looks and feels a lot like a gaming laptop, it's got a cool backlit keyboard. It's from Razor, a company that makes gaming PCs and gaming PC accessories, but it's actually. Actually a 12.5 inch, super thin, super light, ultra portable. You'd kind of compare to 13 inch laptops like the Macbook Air, the Del Expia 13, the Lenovo Yoga 900. It's even a better value than any of those. Let me explain. Let's say you want to get the most laptop possible while spending that magical price of 999 dollars For that much, you could get a 13 inch Macbook Air, you could get a Dell XPS 13, or you can get the base model Razer Blade Stealth. Now on these two guys, you get an Intel Core i5 CPU. Over here, you're actually gonna get a low voltage Core i7. 4 gigs of RAM, 128 of storage over here. You you get a little bit more 8/128. Over here you get the same 8/128. So that's pretty good. Screen resolution, that's actually a big deal. 1440 by 900 here, kind of low. Or go full HD, 1920 by 1980 here. Over here, 2560 by 1440. And of course, you can pay more and get that 4K upgrade as well. And not a touchscreen, not a touchscreen. Over here. Every model is a touch screen. And of course the most fun thing about it is that cool backlit chroma keyboard. And you can set it to just cycle through the spectrum one color at a time in a very subtle way like this or, if you want something that's a little more interactive, there's a preset called ripple. And every key that you press gives you a little explosion coming off from the key. Or if you want to just show off what the keyboard can do, just turn on wave and sit back for a while, watch people's eyes glaze over. The version I'm holding right here is actually the The step up model is 1399 and for that you'd get the 4k display and 256 gigs of storage. And it plays 4k video just fine. It's not a gaming machine, but you could some very basic gaming on it. If you're interested in gaming. This guy actually has a sister device, a companion piece called the Razer Core that's supposedly gonna come out later this year. It's a standalone box that you put your own graphics card into, connects via USB-C, and turns this from an ultrabook into an ultrabook-style gaming machine. But, you're gonna have to wait for that and buy that separately. [MUSIC]
