The 2018 Razer Blade Stealth just dropped in the U.S. and we have been waiting with bated breath over what the Australian pricing was going to look like. We now know.
The Razer Blade Stealth has always been a pretty dang nice 13-inch laptop. Not the best laptop, and not the worst. A good alternative for people who want slick Mac-like design in a Windows computer. With its latest refresh of the Stealth, Razer is wisely moving away from its Apple influences and has started borrowing more from its friends in Windows-land. The result is one sharp looking laptop.
Locally the Stealth is going to start at $2,449, which will get you a 13-inch rig with 1080p display, 8GB of RAM, 256GB of SSD storage, and a quad-core i7-8565U CPU.
If you want a bit more under the hood, you can also opt for the $2,779 versions, which doubles the RAM to 16GB and throws in a Nvidia MX150 4GB GPU to the laptop.
This bigger sibling has definitely piqued my interest. One of the reasons we were so excited about the Huawei Matebook X to coming to Australia was because it had a GPU option for under $3,000 at launch - which is impressive for a laptop.
The Razer Blade stealth is planting itself firmly in this territory, and coming in at this price point is likely to turn heads. I can't wait to get my hands on one and see how it performs.
It's worth noting that in the U.S. there is also a 512GB version of the Stealth that also throws a 4K display into the mix. It will also be coming to Australia but there is no local pricing as yet. In the U.S. it retails for $US1,800.
Sadly there is still no release date for the Razer Blade Stealth in Australia - but you can sign up for notifications on Razer's Australian store. It's definitely coming... at some point.
Fingers crossed that the wait time isn't as long as confusing as the Razer Phone 2, which even appeared at PAX Australia before pricing or availability was announced.
