Bottom Line

The Razer Blade Stealth RZ09-01962E20-R3U1 is an affordable Razer Stealth laptop that now sports the latest Kaby Lake Intel i5 processor. However the lower price does have one major drawback and that is the tiny 128GB SSD.

The Razer Blade Stealth RZ09-01962E20-R3U1 is the most affordable of the Razer Stealth laptops and instead of an Intel i7 processor, Razer has gone for a seventh generation Intel i5 processor to bring down the price. While we would have expected 16GB of RAM in this model, Razer surprised us by still offering this Razer Stealth with 8GB of RAM, which is the same as its predecessor. While it only features integrated Intel graphics, it has been designed to work with Razer’s Core external GPU housing that allows you to add a powerful desktop graphics card. The biggest Achilles heel of this version is its tiny 128GB SSD and you might want to replace it with a larger M.2 SSD.
