The New Blade Stealth NAILS It.


– Hey guys, this is Austin. This is the 2019 Razer Blade Stealth, and it might just be my perfect laptop. What I’ve been looking for is
a thin, light 13-inch laptop which has a quad-core processor, dedicated graphics, and
decent build quality. Now the closest to something
like that I’ve found would be the 13-inch
MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, but at $1,800, it still lacks
those dedicated graphics. Fast forward to 2019, though, and we have the Razer Blade Stealth with pretty much everything
I’ve ever dreamed of. – It’s a 2019, it says the
2019 Razer Blade, it counts. Razer have been making the Blade Stealth for a few years at this point, and while they steadily tweaked the design as well as improved the performance, it’s still been an Ultrabook
and not a gaming PC. Sure, you could plug in a Razer
Core with the external GPU and be able to get some
decent game performance, but up until the 2018 model, you were still limited to dual-core, and it just wasn’t quite the full package, whereas this guy can
game right out of the box because it does have
those dedicated graphics. The base model does still come with Intel integrated graphics, but if you opt for the mid-spec or higher, you do get the NVIDIA MX150 inside. Of course you’re not going to blow away the 15-inch Blade as far
as gaming performance goes, but it is a huge step up over just having integrated graphics. Not only does it unlock
a fair bit of gaming as well as some video editing, but, importantly, this is
not the standard MX150. It is the higher 25-watt TDP version which does come with four
gigs of GDDR5 memory. For example, Fortnite is no problem. We’re easily able to play
at 1080p Medium here, and we’re getting anywhere between 45 to 60 frames per second. Black Ops 4 is also totally
playable here at 1080p on Low. Now the framerate’s pretty solid. We’re getting 45 to 50. If it was me, I would sacrifice just a little bit of resolution to smooth it out and
get a solid locked 60, but it is totally playable. The Stealth has also been updated with the latest Whiskey Lake processors. In this case, the only
option is the Core i7 8650u. 8660, 8565u. It’s the new one! It’s the one that boosts,
like, 4.6 gigahertz. So on top of it being
a quad-core processor, the nice thing here is
that we actually have that extra turbo boost speed to make it feel very responsive. Now I’ve taken a look at
a lot of laptops lately, and some of them do
feel a little bit slower when they don’t quite boost as high, but this feels just as fast as pretty much any kind of gaming PC that I would try For normal web browsing and stuff that you do every single day. This mid-spec model I have here is outfitted with 16 gigs
of dual-channel memory, and that’s backed up by
a 256-gig NVMe drive, which is really quite fast. Put it all together, and if I was building my dream 13-inch laptop, this is pretty much what I would choose: a great CPU, decent GPU speeds, as well as the rest of the specs all wrapped up in a nice aluminum package. The entire design is new this year, so this means that we have smaller bezels, which means that the entire laptop is a little bit less wide. It’s also got a more squared-off design, and it’s all, of course, made out of this matte black aluminum. I think not only does it look nice, but importantly it also feels nice. Part of the reason that it feels so good is because it does start life
as a giant chunk of aluminum which is then CNC milled down to the actual body that we have here. Razer is one of the very
few companies who does this in addition to Apple, and
it does make a difference to the build quality and
just the general heft and, you know, not heft, I
guess, but the general feel. Like, it’s a very rigid sort
of premium-feeling laptop. The only slight issue is that
with my pre-production unit, there is a little bit of flex
on the bottom of the chassis. However, I actually did get to take a look at another Blade Stealth and
that didn’t have this problem, so I’m assuming it’s just an early issue. Remove a few torque screws on the bottom, and you have easy access to
the internals of the laptop. There’s not a lot that
you can work on here. The SSD is user-upgradeable
if you would like. Unfortunately, the RAM is soldered down, but it is actually a really
nice little design here, and importantly you can see they have completely redesigned
the thermal solution, mostly because, you know,
they added a full GPU inside, so we’ve got two fans. There’s also a decently-sized
53-watt hour battery, and that’s good in my experience for somewhere between six to
seven hours of battery life. I just realized, why does
this say Pro in the inside? This, like, a prototype? Oh, oh, yeah, it actually
is a prototype. (laughing) What could Pro mean? Oh, right, ’cause they sent
me a pre-production unit. The ports have also been slightly tweaked. In addition to the Thunderbolt
3 port and two USB-As, we also now have a secondary
USB-C port as opposed to HDMI. Good stuff. Then there’s the screen. Now on paper, this is
actually a downgrade. So we’re going from an 1800p touchscreen down to a 1080p non-touch display. I actually prefer this, though, and a big reason is battery life, so going down to 1080p means we have to push a lot less
pixels, and on top of that, it’s one of the new
ultra-efficient 1 1/2-watt panels, which helps to contribute
to that pretty decent six to seven hours of battery life. Now if you do really want a
touchscreen and more resolution, there is a 4K touch panel option. As far as I’m concerned,
this is the sweet spot. It’s helped by excellent inputs, so not only do we have a
Windows Precision Touchpad here, but I don’t know what kind
of wizardry Razer’s doing, this is among the nicest I’ve ever tried on any Windows laptop. Not only does it have a
very smooth glass surface, but the tracking is really, really on par with a lot of the best
laptops on the market. Then there’s the keyboard. Now it is using custom Razer
switches, and to my tastes, I wish it would be just
a little bit lighter, but I think a lot of
people will be very happy not only for typing but also
with gaming on this guy. And, of course, it does have
the full Chroma RGB support to customize it however you want. – Play Fallout, you know
what I’m talking about. A bunch of birds are getting lit on fire as they fly through the sky! – The speakers are also great. This actually has a quad speaker setup, so it has a pair of two-watt
speakers on either side. And as far as the laptop goes,
again, it sounds really good. Are you sensing a trend here? The Razer Blade Stealth does a lot of things very, very well. What’s not so great is the webcam. As you guys can see, it’s
fine, and it is 720p, but the main issue here is
that the Windows Hello support which is included just doesn’t
work all that reliably. It’s rare that I review a laptop that does so much right. Razer definitely did their homework with the Blade Stealth this year. The only thing I can really
ding them for is price. To get that MX150, which
you really should opt for if you do have the Razer Blade Stealth, you have to get the mid-spec model, which does come in at a
pretty expensive $1,600. Considering the entire package, though, it’s so dope that I really
can’t even complain. It’s so dope, I can’t complain. That’s a tagline for the website. Razer, if you want to put
that on the accolades. It’s so dope, I can’t complain,
Austin, 2018, feel free.

  1. Too much for nothing different…Im with Dave2D on this one….aaaaand this is why I almost never watch your videos hahahaha

  2. How does it compare to Matebook x pro? BTW there are aparentlly two versions of mx 150. Razer has 23 watt version, what matebook has?

  3. a $1600 laptop that comes with a MX150 is not what I would call nailing it. Especially when there are similar laptops that are significantly cheaper.

  4. Yes we do understands MacBooks why they are overpriced due to their Mac OS and customer service etc while this laptop has got nothing it could’ve been worth it if it had its own software or just the price lowered

  5. Hey Austin, would you buy the Razor Blade Stealth, or the Surface Book 2 13 inch with GTX 1050, i7 8650 and 8 gigs of RAM? Assuming that both are the same price.

    T-Gay

  7. I don't get how people are satisfied with PC gaming with 40 FPS. Everything less than 60 is unacceptable IMO. Get that external GPU. Better yet – build a gaming PC and use MacBook Air for travel/work.

  8. every new transition austin is trying to beat the talking speed record:
    theadafjeaje[gadgalda;dadp is a good option
    ireallyaodg jad;lkajd[fadaoigaj on this screen
    calm down, you are not in a race

  9. Razer is a bad choice! Their support still is disappointing. Had my new blade advanced RMAed thrice in 2 months already. Don't waste your laptop funds on this company.

  10. Get an effing gaming laptop from Asus. Like the GL503
    MacBook Pros have exclusives and their price is justifiable compared to windows laptops.

  11. How does the base model compare in fan noise/operating temperature and battery life to the MX150 variant? Looking at one of these for student type work; I don’t do any gaming or editing or anything, so I’m leaning towards the base model, and am hoping it gets a little better battery life.

  12. Looking for something that won’t allow me to game too much as that’s a problem I have and focus more on studying and productivity (not saying NO gaming but less than I do a lot currently) is this a good idea?

  13. I want a good laptop that’s around 1000 and I keep watching these videos…
    but I don’t understand any of these terms

  14. As someone who just contacted Razer to return their second unit – can I just say what an immense fucking shill you come across as in this video. Some of us actually paid for these things with our own money (partly on your recommendation) only to find excessively noisy SSD's, fans with distinctly different sound profiles, audible crackling from speakers, chips in paint and a tonne of other shit I'm sure you couldn't care less about.

  15. Love to install archlinux on this , good thermals, decent GPU, long battery life, perfect developer laptop in my opinion

  16. Everyone is complaining about its price, and it is expensive, but the cheapest config is $1399.99 while an identically specced XPS 13 is $1459.99. If you want 16GB of RAM, the XPS is $1559.99, while the Blade Stealth with the MX150 is just $40 more. I haven’t seen anyone complaining about the price of the XPS 13. Plus I’d rather have full USB ports any day of the week. The keyboard layout is funky, but I don’t recall ever really using the right shift key.

  17. I get way better gameplay on my 1 year old 13" Surface Book 2 with NVIDIA 1050, I cant fathom going down to MX150 and it's not like the Blade doubles as a tablet or does anything special. You can get an SB2 i7 with the 1050 right now for $1200 (eBay) which is cheaper and overall a better laptop that is more portable and more functional.

  18. Does the Pro really mean Prototype? The one I just bought says that on the inside panel. Wondering if I was sold a preproduction unit or if it just says this in all of them.

  19. Paid Promotion????
    Linus & Dave2d both have completely opposite feelings on the Razer Blade Stealth 2019.
    I have to go with Linus and Dave on this one.

  20. So I ordered the Blade Stealth Graphics model about a month and a half ago and the inside cover of mine says Pro as well… Weird.

  21. People need to give the MX150 in the Stealth more credit. It can actually run games pretty decently on 720p. Glad to hear Austin saying the same! Does the Core X egpu work seamlessly or do u need to disable MX150 first?
