Razer Book 13: Release date, price, specs and design

Bye bye Blade, hello Book. The new Razer Book 13 has just been revealed and sees the traditional gaming machine manufacturer take a hard left into productivity. While the Blade line is far from gone, the productivity shift certainly marks a new beginning.

The new Razer Book 13 is looking to be your next work or productivity machine, rather than Razer’s usual aim to get cash for a gaming-focused system. The new laptop puts Intel’s new Evo accreditation at its forefront, with a sleek form-factor, enhanced battery life and a plethora of adaptable ports.

Razer Book 13 specs

We’ve touched on the different specs a tad already but here’s the full rundown of the Razer Book 13 specifications across the three models:

Aside from the nitty-gritty of the spec sheet, a big selling point of the new Razer Book is its Intel Evo accreditation. The new Razer productivity machine has earned the new badge with its touted 14+ hours battery life, instant wake, modern standby and fast charging efforts.

If you want a model that’s Intel Evo certified, you’ll have to go for one of the i7 models, as the i5 doesn’t meet the requirements of the Intel programme.

Razer Book 13

Razer Book 13 design

The design of the new Razer Book falls very much in line with Razer’s Blade line, with a design similar to the Razer Blade 15 2020 and a similar footprint to the Razer Blade Stealth 2020.

The main differences come in the form of the productivity-friendly 16:10 aspect ratio and super-slim bezels. Like the Razer Blade Stealth models that opt out of a dedicated GPU, the Razer Book 13 is also only available in Mercury White.

For ports, you get an extremely good selection for a smaller laptop. There’s two Thunderbolt 4 ports, a full size HDMI 2.0 port, a USB-A 3.2 port, a MicroSD slot and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The Thunderbolt 4 ports allow for charging and eGPU functionality from either side of the device.
