Razer Stealth 13" laptop base model
This is the base model of the Razer stealth, doesn't come with the dedicated mobile graphics card just the integrated intel card - don't expect it to handle games well.

Specs:
i7-8565u 1.8Ghz processor
8GB ram
1080p Matte screen
256GB SSD
Intel integrated HD 620 graphics
"13 hours" battery life - please take with a pinch of salt

Whilst not my particular laptop of choice I think this is the cheapest I've seen this model. There are plenty of reviews online, I haven't included a link to any as the review models all seem to be the more powerful graphics card version and I don't want to mislead anyone.

I don't think so, I think only the 4k screen version is touch screen
Heat added! Exactly what I’m looking for it’s a pity they don’t come with 16GB ram though
For a latest model razer this is a great price. But I think it’s still overpriced for what it is!

If it's the best price available for this model, then it's a deal!

Doesn't surprise me that the more expensive model throttles given what they've got inside it.

I don't see why this one would throttle badly though as it's only using iris plus graphics and the ULV i7-1065G7 processor. This should, in theory, run cool.
Looks like I was looking at the newer model. This one has the older i7-8565U CPU and GeForce MX150. Apologies.

There's a review of it on notebookcheck at notebookcheck.net/Raz…tml

"The latest Blade Stealth offers the biggest performance boost for the series yet. Its new Whiskey Lake-U CPU is much less susceptible to throttling and its discrete GPU option is close to the gaming performance of the 2015 Blade Pro."

Unfortunately this one linked in the deal doesn't even have the MX150, just the built in Intel UHD Graphics 620

I'd probably lean towards an XPS 13 if there's no discrete graphics card.
Rune_2H:

Well thin and good specs always will throttle. No manufacturer has made an efficient cooling system. Undervolting/repasting helps but only a bit. The thinner and more powerful a laptop gets the more it'll throttle.

I understand that. I undervolted my gaming laptop the other day as with a 2080 it runs hot (managed to drop temperatures by 15 degrees). Doing a repaste later this week. Just waiting for the thermal paste to arrive.

But let's be honest, ULV processors aren't powerful. This isn't an octa core CPU taking 150 watts. It uses like 15 to 25 watts and is designed to be efficient.

Don't get me wrong, I know thinner chassis's can complicate things. Even my surface pro 6 runs hot and that's far from powerful, but I don't see any reason why the 8565U should throttle in this laptop.

If you look at the notebookcheck review you can see the CPU performs well and is doing better than the same CPU in the Dell Inspiron 14 5000.
