  • - Hey guys, this is Austin.

  • And I have switched to the Razer Blade Stealth.

  • See, I didn't need to keep you in click bait suspense.

  • So when Intel reached out and wanted to sponsor a video,

  • it felt like the perfect time to talk about why

  • I personally have switched over to the Stealth.

  • So I'm lucky enough to take a look

  • at a lot of different laptops,

  • and usually I do spend at least a few days, if not a week,

  • using it as my main machine.

  • But you know what I keep coming back to?

  • This Blade Stealth.

  • When we first took a look at it last year,

  • mind you it was a prototype,

  • but I absolutely fell in love.

  • So as Ken always likes to point out,

  • even though I like to do videos on gaming laptops,

  • I actually don't spend a lot of time gaming myself anymore.

  • And that's for one simple reason,

  • I spend all that time in emails

  • and writing up video scripts and doing research

  • instead of playing that next game of Fortnite.

  • Now there's nothing wrong with a 15-inch gaming laptop.

  • Honestly, that is where you're going to get

  • the most performance in a portable form factor,

  • but for me, I would much rather go to something

  • that's smaller, lighter, and importantly will fit in areas

  • that I actually use the laptop,

  • like, you know, the back of a car

  • or an airline seat or wherever the case is,

  • I know that I can always use this Razer Blade Stealth

  • to get done whatever I need to get done.

  • I mean, if I'm going to be completely real,

  • the only reason I stopped using this laptop

  • in the first place

  • is because Razer sent over a prototype

  • of their Blade Stealth

  • which they very sort of nicely asked for back

  • after I tried to keep it for a little while

  • because I didn't want to give it up.

  • But (chuckles) I know.

  • I tried a few other laptops.

  • I did a lot of other videos.

  • And yet, I end up with the Blade Stealth yet again,

  • and this one is all mine.

  • Inside, I'm really not giving up performance.

  • Now sure, in 15-inch laptops such as a MacBook Pro

  • or the larger Razer Blade will give you more core,

  • more graphics, all that kind of stuff,

  • but as far as what I need to do,

  • this can do absolutely everything besides for editing,

  • which of course I do have a dedicated system for.

  • 95% of what I do every day

  • is done on this Razer Blade Stealth.

  • A big part of that

  • is the eighth generation Intel Core i7 processor inside.

  • And yes, Intel is sponsoring this video,

  • but I have tried a lot of different laptops

  • and a lot of different laptop processors,

  • and this really is a sweet spot

  • between performance and battery life right now.

  • The i7 8565U is a processor that's found

  • on a lot of premium notebooks and for good reason.

  • It has a 15 watt TDP, which is especially suited

  • for something like this 13-inch form factor.

  • And importantly, it does have a full quad-core design

  • that can boost over four gigahertz which is really nice,

  • considering that in the Razer Blade Stealth,

  • it has plenty of cooling to actually handle that.

  • Now it's not a Razer product if it can't game,

  • and the Razer Blade Stealth is surprisingly powerful

  • given its small form factor.

  • So there is an optional Nvidia MX150 GPU,

  • but the real way to game on this guy

  • is to take advantage of Thunderbolt.

  • Now we have talked about Thunderbolt before,

  • but what I really like about it

  • is it turns a thin and light laptop

  • which is great for travel, great for portability,

  • into a full gaming powerhouse.

  • So with that single Thunderbolt cable,

  • we have power going to the laptop,

  • so you don't need to charge it or anything like that.

  • And we also have USB with a mouse

  • as well as an external SSD.

  • But the real kicker is the extra graphics horsepower we get

  • with the RTX 2070.

  • Now there are a wide range of different external GPU options

  • that you can go with.

  • I like this one because it's super tiny.

  • And of course, it has the power to drive a full 5K

  • ultrawide monitor like this.

  • The nice thing is you don't have to deal with

  • any of the downsides of a big, heavy gaming laptop.

  • I have all the power I need when I want it

  • and the portability when I actually need it,

  • which is like 90% of the time.

  • Also, shout-out to these speakers, man.

  • They are actually properly loud.

  • I don't even feel like I need to use another set of

  • normal desktop speakers.

  • It might seem like a smaller point,

  • but something I do like about the Blade Stealth

  • is its port selection.

  • So in addition to the Thunderbolt 3,

  • we also have USB-C as well as a pair of USB-A.

  • And both the USB-C and Thunderbolts

  • can also charge the laptop.

  • So as long as you have something like this

  • to be able to plug it in,

  • you can pretty much game for as long as you like.

  • The nice part about this is that I'm playing on a 5K

  • ultrawide right now with full maxed out settings,

  • and the Razer Blade has no problem with it whatsoever.

  • Even if you do opt for the internal GPU,

  • you just don't have this kind of power.

  • All it takes is literally that one Thunderbolt cable,

  • and as long as you have a decent GPU,

  • which honestly most of the time

  • you're going to have something that's

  • at least somewhat decent as far as the external side goes,

  • you're going to have a lot of power to play with.

  • Battery life is a big part of any laptop that I use

  • as my daily.

  • So inside the Blade Stealth

  • is a decent sized 53 watt-hour battery,

  • but what really pushes it over the edge

  • is the display which in theory can give you up to

  • 13 hours of battery life on a charge.

  • I talked a little bit about this in my previous video,

  • but this is using a 13.3-inch 1080p panel.

  • Now there is a 4K touchscreen option,

  • but battery life is absolutely the reason why

  • this is my main choice.

  • So first of all, it is a solid panel.

  • 1080p, in my opinion, is really the sweet spot

  • for a laptop of this size,

  • and the major advantage here is that you get

  • some seriously improved battery life

  • thanks to the fact that it is a one watt panel.

  • I actually got to chat with the team who put this together

  • and it is pretty cool.

  • So the display is almost always

  • one of the biggest power draws

  • when you're using a phone, laptop.

  • Specifically with a laptop that's this size,

  • it can pull a lot of power.

  • On average, a 1080p panel might pull two watts

  • and a 4K panel can pull double that.

  • However, this display has been heavily optimized,

  • not only on the hardware side

  • but also on the driver and the software side,

  • bringing that down to around one watt,

  • which absolutely equals more battery life

  • without really any downside.

  • It's still a really nice screen.

  • It still looks great.

  • It just takes up less power, which directly means

  • that the laptop is going to last longer without a charge

  • or with a charge.

  • It will have a charge for longer.

  • Now, all this being said, 13 hours

  • is a little bit of an optimistic estimate.

  • That makes sense if you're just sitting around

  • watching video all day.

  • When I'm doing stuff like keeping Slack open,

  • listening to Spotify, watching videos

  • with tons of Chrome tabs open,

  • I'm averaging around eight hours or so on a charge,

  • which is really not too bad

  • considering that a lot of laptops with my load,

  • especially these Ultrabooks,

  • can only last about five to six hours.

  • So they're doing a lot here,

  • and a lot of it I do think is due to that one watt panel.

  • The Stealth also has Intel's Gigabit WiFi built in.

  • You may have caught a couple videos we did recently

  • where we talked about upgrading the WiFi here at our studio.

  • So let's see what we can actually get over

  • just purely a wireless network.

  • So in theory, we do have a Gigabit connection,

  • and so, 400, 500, almost 600 megabits a second.

  • And that is actually without even upgrading our WiFi router

  • to something which is technically Gigabit capable.

  • Maybe it's time to go for WiFi six.

  • Regardless though, these are incredibly impressive speeds

  • and the nice thing is is that this is capable

  • of Gigabit WiFi no matter where you are.

  • So I'm traveling, if I find some super fast airport WiFi,

  • sometimes the airport WiFi actually is pretty good,

  • I can take full advantage of it with the Razer Blade Stealth

  • especially when it comes to stuff like uploading videos

  • when you're at a trade show and things are very, very slow.

  • The real downside with the Blade Stealth

  • is that it is on the pricey side.

  • There are certainly other laptops

  • which can give you a similar level of spec

  • for a whole lot less money,

  • but the main reason why I really like this

  • and I continue to use it

  • is because it is such a killer blend

  • of power, portability, build quality, and battery life,

  • which is, as far as I'm concerned,

  • just can't be beat by any other laptop

  • that I've tried this year.

  • Thank you very much for watching.

  • So I'm actually here in Taiwan for Computex right now

  • where I'll be taking a lot at some of the other stuff

  • that Intel's releasing at the show.

  • Simply be sure to stay tuned.

  • And of course if you're interested in

  • anything I talked about in this video,

  • the links will be in the description.

  • Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go to sleep.

- Hey guys, this is Austin.
