The Razer Book 13, Razer's first non-gaming laptop, stormed onto the scene with an excellent design, a stunning display, and an overall build that competes with the likes of the Dell XPS 13. In his Razer Book 13 review, our executive editor Daniel Rubino called the Razer Book 13 "arguably the best Windows Ultrabook of 2020." It also quickly earned a spot on our list of the best Windows laptops. Starting today, there's an additional variant of the Razer Book 13 that makes it more affordable to get more storage.
The new variant of the Razer Book 13 has a 13.4-inch FHD touch display, an Intel Core i7-1165G7 CPU, 16GB of DDR4 memory, and a 512GB SSD. It's available for $1,699 starting today.
The latest version of the Razer Book 13 sits between the Intel Core i7 version with 16GB of RAM and 256GB of storage ($1,600) and the top-of-the-line model with a 4K display, Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, and 512GB of storage ($2,000). The new option is a more affordable way to bump up to 512GB of storage at the cost of having an FHD display instead of a 4K screen.
Having "only" an FHD display shouldn't be much of a drawback for most people. In his review, Rubino explains why the FHD screen is a good option.
Most people should go with the full HD touch model. The 13.4-inch screen is one of the best I've used, and the benefit at 4K at this size is reserved only for pros who really need such a high resolution for work-related tasks. Full HD at this size, aspect, and this quality doesn't even show the pixels.
This new model looks like a solid option if you need a lot of storage but don't want to spend $2,000 on a Razer Book 13.
