After launching a revamp of the 15-inch Razer Blade earlier this year, complete with thinner bezels and an all-around smaller profile, it only makes sense Razer would do the same with its ultraportable Blade Stealth laptop.

Razer offers the new version with the Intel Core i7-8565U, while previous year 's implementation came with an i7-8550U. Equipped with a 4K touchscreen and 512GB of SSD space while retaining the same 16GB of RAM and MX150 graphics, its premium price tag seems justified.

The Razer Blade Stealth retails at an SRP of US$1399 (~RM5809). These powerful parts all sit behind your choice of between a 13.3-inch FHD (1,920 x 1,080) no-touch or 4K (3,840 x 2,160) touch display. Razer also retained the ideal web camera placement at the top of the screen to avoid awkward shots.

Smaller monitor bezels and a bigger touchpad bring the Stealth up to date in both look and feel, and allow Razer to shrink the laptop's footprint. Additionally, the laptop can be charged nearly anywhere with the compact 65W USB-C charger that works on most flights with AC power available.

Although the Razer Blade Stealth was never meant to be a gaming laptop, it looks like the company is taking some steps to meet gamers' needs. All models also come with an Intel UHD Graphics 620 GPU, with dedicated graphics models dynamically switching between the integrated and dedicated graphics when needed.

Razer advanced thermal system and new power management options have been integrated into Razer Synapse 3 software to maximize battery life, quiet fans in a meeting, or provide full power when gaming.

This redesign finally sees every one of Razer's laptops adopt the company's new design ID of more starkly-drawn corners and edges, with more flat angles throughout.

However, Razer has tuned its application of this graphics chip a little higher than most, with it being a 25-watt processor rather with 4GB of GDDR5 video memory than the 10W/2MB applications found within laptops like the Huawei MateBook X Pro.

With the new Razer Blade Stealth there are three sub-models available at the time of writing, all based around the Intel Core i7-8565U 4C/8T Whiskey Lake processor. The base model also comes with 8GB of RAM while others have 16GB.

The Razer Blade Stealth comes with variety of connectivity options which include Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C), USB-C 3.1 Gen 2, two USB-A, and a 3.5mm audio combo port.

A seamless connection from the Thunderbolt 3 port to Razer Core external desktop graphics enclosures boosts the performance by connecting to desktop graphics cards.

Sound quality has improved dramatically in the new Razer Blade Stealth.

Because it features not two, but four upward-firing speakers, sound on the new Razer Blade Stealth should pack quite a punch.
