Razer is well known globally for their gaming hardware and peripherals but they have now announced a laptop that signals their march into mainstream productivity. The Razer Book 13 is a 13.4″ laptop (offering 1080p up to 4K) with all of the trimmings to be mobile, productive and look good while doing it.
It’s got a 13.4” display with very slim bezels, an 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processor (i5 or i7 – model dependent) with Intel® Iris® Xe graphics. The memory and storage options are scaled to ensure users are able to get a model that users can get the performance they need. RAM offerings are 8GB (i5 model) through to 16GB (i7 versions) and storage options of either 256GB or 512 (top model only).
The range of connectivity options is impressive, offering:
- Two Thunderbolt 4 ports (USB-C) and a USB-A 3.2 Gen 2 port
- A 3.5mm combo port (mic and headphone capable)
- A full-sized HDMI 2.0 port
- A microSD card slot
- Intel® Wi-Fi 6 AX 201 wireless card and Bluetooth 5.1
It also features the new Intel Evo which is a new mobility standard that focuses on mobility and productivity combination:
The touch-enabled models of the Razer Book 13 will feature Intel® Evo platform verification, distinguishing them as the absolute best choice for mobile power users. Intel Evo verified laptops are an elite class of mobile devices that feature instant wake technology to quickly resume work in less than a second, consistent responsiveness on battery, no less than 9 hours of real-world battery life on designs with FHD displays to make it through the day, and 4 or more hours of battery life in a 30- minute charge.
The options for the i5 and i7 models have been well thought through, with options to suits a variety of users and price ranges. The Razer Book 13 i5 configuration starts at US$1,199.99 USD. The Razer Book 13 i7 configurations start at US$1599.99 and with both models becoming available later this month via Razer.com, RazerStore retail locations, and — the i7 models — select retailers in the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and China.
What those prices will equate to once they hit Australian shores is unknown at this time, but we’ll be in contact with Razer to confirm that detail as soon as possible.
