Want a gaming laptop, but don’t want a computer that’s too heavy to lug around with you everywhere you go? Razer’s got an interesting solution.
The Razer Blade Stealth is an ultrabook with a 12.5 inch touchscreen display and a body that measures just 0.5 inches thick and which weighs just 2.75 pounds. It’s available with a Core i7 Skylake processor and 8GB of RAM.
While that might be good enough for most computing tasks and basic gaming, what happens when you want to play more demanding games? Just plug in a graphics card.
The company will offer a Razer Core desktop graphics enclosure that supports most recent AMD or NVDIDIA graphics cards. It connects to the Razer Blade Stealth laptop with a Thunderbolt 3/USB 3.1 Type C connector, letting you switch to high performance graphics.
The Razer Blade Stealth will be available starting this month. A model with a 2560 x 1440 pixel display, 128GB of storage, and a Core i7-6500U processor is priced at $999. You can also opt for up to 512GB of storage and a 3840 x 2160 pixel display. A top-of-the-line model is priced at $1599.
Keep in mind that those prices don’t include the Razer Core or a desktop graphics card. The Core should be available in the first half of 2015. Pricing hasn’t been announced yet.
Other features of the laptop include HDMI 1.4b, two USB 3.0 ports, stereo speakers, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, and a 45 Wh battery.
The Razer Core measures 13.4″ x 8.6″ x 4.1″ and features four USB 3.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet, and a 375 watt power supply.
