About the Product
The Razer Blade Stealth Ultrabook sets the new standard for ultra-mobility and extreme performance. The incredibly thin 0.52 inch CNC aluminum chassis encases an Intel Core i7 processor, and the most visually stunning 12.5 inch QHD touch display. For extreme performance, the Blade Stealth fuses seamlessly with the optional Razer Core via Thunderbolt 3, delivering external desktop graphics and expanded connectivity.
The virtually borderless InfinityEdge display maximizes screen space by squeezing a 13-inch display in an 11-inch frame. With a bezel only 5.2 mm thin, starting at only 2.7 pounds and measuring a super slim 9-15 mm, the XPS 13 is exceptionally thin and light.

What customers say about "Processor"
Razer Blade Stealth (RZ09-01962E12-R3U1) QHD Touchscreen Ultrabook (7th Generation Intel Core i7, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, Windows 10)
  • Everything is quick and loads fast, even better than my desktop CPU fx series chip. I was very surprised of how this laptop is, the only words I have are "Amazing." I
  • Very fast, great display and tons of features unique to this computer I did not know it had when I got it.
  • Works wonderfully fast, bootup is crazy fast, amazing screen it is so hard to find a 1440p laptop that isn't mega expensive, great battery life, awesome individual rgb keys
  • Can get a little bit warm when doing anything intensive which in 40 degree heat in Perth can be annoying, but I wouldnt say that it runs "Hot" and therefore it really puts this in the same category as most other ultrabooks.
  • The power bottom is really shallow, but it works
Dell XPS 13 (9360-3591SLV) InfinityEdge Display, 7th Generation Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, 256 GB SSD, Silver
  • This computer is fast and capable especially with the i7u processor with hyperthreading. It can do pretty much anything you want and fast!
  • Best laptop I have owned. Better suited for productivity than a surface pro 4 or a Macbook pro 13.
  • The I7 Gen 7 processor is advertised anywhere from 2.9-3.5GHz. Windows System information tells me it is actually 2.7GHZ. This is screaming fast!
  • These laptops are very well built and are loaded with a powerful processor and enough RAM to handle almost anything. I've been using one of these systems and absolutely love it.
  • It's lightweight, extremely fast and handles anything I throw at it.
  • Occasionally gets a bit hot

Razer Blade Stealth (RZ09-01962E12-R3U1) QHD Touchscreen Ultrabook (7th Generation Intel Core i7, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, Windows 10)
  • The POWER! - I'm currently writing this review, listening to a podcast, downloading Civ 5 and have 12 tabs open in Chrome with no fuss
  • I love everything about the device, read and write speeds are super fast, the 16 gb of ram helps me open all these chrome tabs.
  • Fast startup time and speedy opening of apps due to the SSD.
  • All of the drivers are up to date, CPU and RAM usage seems right, but the performance is terrible.
  • I bought the laptop hoping it can handle some engineering programs. However, it lags upon using google chrome. I bought the 4K touch with i7 500 something GB. It had 16GB ram. The Laptop would get super hot for no reason.

  • The laptop takes 14 seconds from the time you hit the “On” button until you can start working. This is due to Windows 10 and a Toshiba Solid State Drive. The drive has 512 GB of storage – plenty for a laptop!
  • The 16 GB of memory was advertised as 1866 GHz, but is reported as 2133GHz. This is fairly meaningless, however – the amount of RAM is far more important – and 16 GB is plenty to do anything you could want to do with a computer.
  • I was worried from the comments on the computer with its issues but assumed if I got i7 and best ram that there wouldn't be any issues. By the second week the computer couldn't even open without crashing and I was undable to do anything. Sent it back with no issues and Amazon did a great job

What customers say about "Features"
Razer Blade Stealth (RZ09-01962E12-R3U1) QHD Touchscreen Ultrabook (7th Generation Intel Core i7, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, Windows 10)
  • Love the trackpad (not as good as the Macbook Pro, but definitely the closest I have used)
  • The Screen - Sharp and with good touch-responsiveness I thinks its awesome if the bezels dont bother you (they dont bother me)
  • Great keyboard! responsive, fantastic feeling, and almost silent.
  • location of fan opening, i have no idea why they have a fan opening where no fan is located, both fans are next to each other and only one fan gets air, it literally looks like they used the bottoms from their other razer products
  • Battery life, roughly 5-6 hours normal usage such as web and youtube
  • Absolute fingerprint magnet, but easy fix - get a skin!
Dell XPS 13 (9360-3591SLV) InfinityEdge Display, 7th Generation Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, 256 GB SSD, Silver
  • Windows 10 is a great operating system. Those who complain about it just simply don't like change and will complain about MacOS Sierra as well. There are significant performance improvements in Windows 10 which bring startup speeds to less than 10 seconds from a complete shut down.
  • The small bezels make the laptop's screen look much bigger than 12.5" and is aesthetically pleasing
  • The battery can last up to 14 hours which is amazing if you don't want to bring the charger around
  • The battery takes less than an hour and a half to fully charge
  • The quality of pictures is fantastic, great for movies/videos
  • Camera is on the bottom left of the display
  • No fingerprint sensor

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Razer Blade Stealth (RZ09-01962E12-R3U1) QHD Touchscreen Ultrabook (7th Generation Intel Core i7, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, Windows 10)
  • HDMI Output - just so convenient if you hook up to monitors/TV's or projectors
  • Good ports, 2 USB, 1 thunderbolt 3 and 1 HDMI, I can use my all in one as a monitor!!
  • The port selection hasn't been a problem for me and I'm really glad they included the 2 USB 3 ports. I think USB type C is soon to be the standard, but many devices still use USB 3.
  • You will find one two USB 3.0 ports, one USB type C connector for the power which is thunder bolt 3 compliant and a HDMI 1.4 port
  • Only one Thunderbolt 3 port for the power and your other peripherals so basically you have to decide whether you want to keep your ultrabook charged or use anything else that requires this port.
Dell XPS 13 (9360-3591SLV) InfinityEdge Display, 7th Generation Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, 256 GB SSD, Silver
  • Has all ports for normal productivity and beats in price all the new refreshed Macbook pro's.
  • I am glad I purchased last year's model, as the extra USB port and the standard-sized SD card slot are pretty nice bonuses.
  • NOTE THAT THE SSD PORT ONLY SUPPORTS SATA (so if you want to buy 128gb and upgrade the ssd, make sure you have a sata ssd)
  • They went with a lightening port for HDMI instead of a regular HDMI port so you have to use an adapter for HDMI output, which is intermittent at best, or buy a lightening to HDMI cable
