Move over, Razer Blade Stealth. There's a new business notebook in town from Razer. The Razer Book 13 doubles down on productivity and mobile road warriors with a compact and slim design that still manages to pack plenty of screen. Carved from a single block of aluminum and anodised with a scratch-resistant mercury white finish, the Book 13 exudes modern, minimalist class. 

It doesn't seem like Razer has cut any corners with the Book 13 and it is outfitted with specs that put it in the top of its class, including Intel's new chip that comes equipped with its Iris Xe integrated graphics:

  • 13.4-inch 1,920 x 1,200-pixel display
  • Intel Core i7-1165G7
  • 16GB LPDDR4X dual-channel 4,267MHz memory
  • 256GB PCIe M.2 SSD
  • 4,602mAh battery
  • 295.6 x 198.5 x 15.15mm
  • 1.40kg

You can also opt for a larger 512GB SSD and a 3,840 x 2,400-pixel display, but the higher resolution screen will bring the battery life down from Razer's claimed 14 hours to 11 hours. Razer's usually excellent trackpad makes an appearance here as well, and it is suitably large and comes with Windows Precision Drivers. You'll notice the 16: 10 aspect ratio as well, which allows for more vertical screen real estate when working with documents.

The Book 13 is also Intel Evo certified, which means instant wake so you can resume work more quickly, consistent responsiveness on battery, and 4 or more hours of battery life after a 30-minute charge.

Other features include an HD webcam with a 4-mic array and Windows Hello integration, stereo speakers that support THX Spatial Audio, and support for Wi-Fi 6. There's a fairly decent selection of ports and connectors for such a slim notebook as well, including two Thunderbolt 4, one USB 3.2 (Gen 2) Type-A, a full-sized HDMI 2.0 output, and a 3.5mm headphone and microphone combo jack.  

The Razer Book 13 starts at S$1,899 with an Intel Core i5 processor. The Core i7 configurations start at S$2,599. It will be available to buy in November at Razer.com.
