Despite some early announcements Razer is now finally shipping some of its latest laptops – at least in the U.S. and Canada (for now).
Razer Blade Stealth 13.3" in gunmetal gray
The new Razer Blade Stealth with its 13.3-inch QHD+ (3200 x 1800 pixels) touchscreen – a bump from the previous 12.5-inch – is now shipping in gunmetal gray.
The new color scheme was announced in June at E3 ditching the green glowing snakes and Chroma keyboard for a more subtle, professional look. Of course, the jet-black Blade Stealth with all the Chroma goodness is already shipping and available.
Other changes with the 2017 edition include:
- 13.3-inch QHD (3200 x1800) IGZO display (new).
- 50 percent smaller bezels (new).
- Optional gunmetal gray finish with white backlit keys (new).
- Precision touchpad (new).
- Seventh-generation Kaby Lake Core i7-7500U processor (updated).
- Up to nine hours battery (improved).
- 16GB of RAM (up from 8GB).
Starting at $1,399 the gunmetal gray Razer Blade Stealth is now shipping in the US and Canada. Best Buy, Amazon, Newegg, and Microsoft.com will be getting stock soon too.
Coincidentally, we just received our review unit of the black Razer Blade Stealth for 2017 in a few days ago. Look for that review sometime next week!
4K UHD Razer Blade 2017 now shipping
Going back to February Razer announced that the new Kaby Lake-edition Razer Blade 14-inch was also getting a new 4K UHD touch display option. While already available in matte Full HD (see my mini-review) the 4K edition is a bump up from the Skylake 14-inch QHD (3200 x1800) version.
Evidently, Razer ran into some tight supply issues to grab that high-end 4K panel as we never thought it would actually ship.
Razer Blade 4K UHD is available now in the US and Canada with availability in the UK, Germany, France, Australia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Japan, and China by the end of September from $2,399 USD.

Review: NASCAR Heat 5 is still the complete package for fans
It's not long since NASCAR Heat 4 arrived, or at least, that's how it seems, with the new title arriving much earlier in the year than its predecessor. It's got some shiny new paint jobs and some neat new features, but many would be hard pressed to tell it apart from last year's game.
