Razer Now Makes A Laptop That’s Meant For Productivity
Razer now makes a laptop that is meant first and foremost, for productivity, though it still looks very much like the rest of the company’s laptops meant for gaming.
Though it’s not a Razer Blade, this productivity laptop, called the Razer Book 13, carries the same design. Complete with the same CNC-milled frame and an anodized aluminum finish. It does however come with a more muted matte white color. Razer calls it Mercury. If you’re unfamiliar with what this looks like, it sort of matches the color of the Razer Productivity suite products. Such as the Razer Pro Type.
It also still comes with an RGB backlit keyboard. A bit of an interesting move considering the productivity keyboard that Razer makes has white backlit keys instead of RGB.
The Razer Book 13 laptop is built for productivity, and the ports prove it
If you take a look at Razer’s most similar laptop, the Blade Stealth, a big difference in what the laptops are meant for can be seen in the ports.
The Book 13 comes with a few more ports than you’ll find on the Blade Stealth. All total it has 2 Thunderbolt 4 USB-C ports, a USB-A port, an HDMI 2.0 port, a 3.5mm audio port, and an SD card reader. This puts it more in line with what someone would need if they were using this specifically for or mostly for work purposes.
The differences don’t stop there though. The Book 13 also comes with a more reserved CPU and GPU setup. While laptops like the Blade Stealth now come with dedicated GeForce GTX 1660 Ti GPUs, the Book 13 is using Intel Iris Xe graphics. If there is any indication that this isn’t a gaming laptop. That’s it right there. It is however compatible with Razer’s external GPU dock, so if you need or want better graphics for games while at home, you can have them.
Additional specs include a 13.4-inch FHD 60Hz display (it also comes in touch-capable FHD and UDH models), 8GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD, an 11th Gen Intel Core i5-1145G7 CPU, a 720 web cam, and a weight of just under 3 pounds as well as a thickness of just 15.5mm.
Pre-orders are live and the laptop officially launches Nov. 27
If this seems just like the laptop you’re looking for, you can already buy it both from Razer and from Amazon.
The non-touch FHD model with 8GB of RAM is a Razer exclusive, and is priced at $1,199.99. Both the touch-based FHD model and the touch-based UHD model can be picked up at Amazon for $1,599.99 and $1,999.99 respectively.
Both of those models come with 16GB of RAM instead of 8GB, but the UHD model comes with a 512GB SSD instead of a 256GB SSD.
