Razer just canâ€™t quit video games. The Blade Stealth was its exit strategyâ€”or so I thought. Released in 2016, the Stealth was Razerâ€™s debut Ultrabook, and brought the larger Bladeâ€™s sleek, MacBook-like aesthetics and build quality to people who just check their email and type up memos, or whatever. I fell in love.
But with each new iteration, Razerâ€™s strayed further and further from the ideals of that initial Stealth. The 2018 Blade Stealth ditched the vaunted $999 price point for a more premium experience. And for 2020? Razerâ€™s billing the latest Stealth as the â€œfirst gaming Ultrabook.â€� With its discrete graphics card and 13-inch, 300Hz display, itâ€™s basically a very small gaming laptop.
