Razer, most notable for its gaming laptops and peripherals, is forging ahead to establish itself as a productivity laptop maker with its latest productivity laptop, Razer Book 13, aimed at the so-called “go-getters, side-hustlers, and spirited entrepreneurs.” Well, that sure fits my profile. Just kidding. Again, my wallet begs to differ. Oh, well…
The all-new Razer Book 13 is a looker with the performance to match. Kicking off the spec-sheet is individually factory calibrated 13.4-inch display offering up UHD+ (3,840 x 2,400 pixels) resolution with slim bezels, touch display, Corning Gorilla Glass and anti-reflective coating.
The device is powered by a choice of quadcore 11th-gen Intel Core i5-1135G7 2.4/3.8 GHz processor or quadcore 11th-gen Intel Core i7-1165G7 2.8/4.7 GHz processor – both with Hyper Threading, paired to Intel Iris Xe Graphics.
The all-new Razer Book 13 comes with up to 16 GB LPDDR4x 4,267 MHz dual-channel memory and 256 GB PCIe M.2 or 512 GB PCIe M.2 storage.
Other details include a pair of Thunderbolt 4 port with USB-C interface, a USB-A 3.2 port, a 3.5mm combo jack, HDMI 2.0 interface, microSD slot, two upward-firing speakers with Smart Amp, THX Spatial Audio (but, of course!), anti-ghosting and Chroma-powered backlit keyboard, glass touchpad, built-in 4-mic array, IR camera, that supports Windows Hello, Windows Cortana supported, built-in 720p webcam, Bluetooth 5.1, and a 55 Wh battery good for up to 11-14 hours, depending on the model.
The Razer Book 13 is presented in an anodized T6 CNC aluminum body in mercury with tone-on-tone Razer logo. Did we mention it is the world’s thinnest 13.4-inch… display bezels. We most definitely dig the straight edge design last seen in the Razer Blade Studio Edition laptop.
