When Razer introduced its own 13-inch Stealth notebook in 2016, I did not do a review. I had been told it was not a gambling system, purely a productivity device. The newest Razer Blade Stealth, outfitted with Nvidia’s Geforce GTX 1650 cellular images, can play PC games capably without consuming too much space. It is the very small gaming system I have been searching for.

As much as I like PC gaming in my desktop machine facing a huge screen, I spend a lot of my computer time nowadays studying on tiny surfaces. Because of a health condition, I devote the majority of my afternoon working out of a hospital bed on a tiny over-the-bed desk. There’s not any space for a desktop computer. There’s hardly room for action characters, energy drinks, and game controls. . .you knowthe essentials. My present setup comes with a full size notebook on a wobbly arm shared with the screen I use for my consoles. It is a wreck.

The Razer Blade Stealth 13 isn’t a wreck. It’s 12-inch-wide, 9-inch-deep,.6-inch-high black box (it is also accessible Mercury White). It weighs only a little more than three pounds. Razer likes to picture the machine near a dime, making dimes feel all tall as well as exceptional. Good on you, dimes.

This black box opens to reveal a stunning 13.3-inch 4K touch screen, using a pre-installed rainbow backdrop to flaunt just how bright and vibrant it’s (really ). The keyboard is quite low profile but reasonably responsive. The touch pad is a bit pad, nice for browsing the internet shit for gambling, as is true for all pads.

You can find vents for game-enhancing accessories available on the Razer Blade Stealth 13( such as a suitable mouse or mechanical keyboard, although not many. There is a Thunderbolt 3 power interface, a USB-C 3.1 interface, and a set of regular USB 3.1 interfaces. I love having a set of USB-C size vents to give power, because every new bit of hardware I purchase is USB-C nowadays. If I want to plug in over two regular USB devices, I will always catch a heartbeat.

The exterior of this Razer Blade Stealth is quite wonderful. I favor it in pink, however the pink version doesn’t have the strong interiors of this new GTX 4K version. Together with the Geforce GTX 1650 images, it is powered by a quad core 10th-gen Intel Core i7-1065G7 chip with a base rate of 1.3 GHz and turbo rate of 3.9 Ghz. It has 16 gigabytes of LPDDR4 3733 MHz dual-channel memory, plus also a 500GB PCIe M.2 push for keeping items like video games, Photoshop, and downloaded episodes of The Mandalorian. Speaking of Star Wars

Here I’m playing Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order to a $1,700 notebook sitting lopsided on a few crap in my over-the-bed desk. I didn’t clear it that a distance since I do not wish to get overly attached. However, even lopsided it functions like a little, comparatively strong champ.

I say relatively because this version of this Razer Blade Stealth’s electricity is small when compared with gaming-dedicated powerhouses such as the Razer Blade and Blade Pro. It’s a 4K screen, but do not expect smooth gameplay in 4K resolution. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order runs nicely at 1920 x 1080 in the”large” pictures setting, but it is not keeping a stable 60 frames-per-second. It claws 60 within an older game such as Overwatch. It has become my favourite way to perform World of Warcraft. And I am sure it is capable of handling just about every single game I will throw it in playable regular HD.

The GTX 4K version of this Razer Blade Stealth isn’t overwhelmingly strong, which will be fine. I didn’t need this to become a rip-roaring dedicated gaming notebook with fans blowing full-speed to keep yourself updated with the toughest games in hopeless resolutions. I wanted a little, unassuming bit of hardware which does all I want to do to my job–browsing the world wide web, editing photographs, creating animated GIFs, being a dick onto Twitter–also plays video games fairly well. That is exactly what the newest Razer Blade Stealth does. For my own purposes, it is ideal.

Well, after I paint it pink.
