Ultimate portable gaming PC setup.
So you may have noticed this giant
38 inch Ultra Wide monitor from LG
Who are awesome enough to sponsor this Articles?
And make this whole setup happen.
However, all those pixels aren’t going to push themselves
Which is where this comes in?
The Razor Blade Stealth might be one
Of my favorite new laptops this year.
While Razor has been making solid computers for years,
The Stealth packs solid hardware
With a totally reasonable price.
With a 12.5 inch touchscreen display
That comes in either 2560 by 1440 or full 4K resolutions,
You’re getting a rock solid screen
No matter which confer you pick up
And that makes a difference.
While a thin and light laptop is hardly something
To get excited about these days,
What really jumps out to me is the build quality.
It’s all aluminum with a matte black coating,
Which feels premium?
There’s essentially no flex anywhere
And besides the glowing green Razor logo,
The branding is super minimal.
You’ve got a solid keyboard with full RGB lighting
That you can customize,
A good track pad,
Along with front firing speakers
On either side of the keyboard that get surprisingly loud.
Inside, you’ve got a brand new Core i7-7500U
Making the Blade Stealth one of the first laptops
With the new Intel Kay Lake processors.
It’s still a dual core part,
But it’s absolutely enough to keep up
With even fairly intense use,
Which is helped by the addition?
Of 16 gigs of RAM being standard
On everything but the base model.
When it comes time to get some work done,
All you need is single USB Type-C cable
To plug the Blade Stealth directly
Into our LG Ultra Wide displays.
The LG 38UC99 might be one
Of the craziest displays I’ve ever seen.
Ultra Wide monitors are always cool,
But this takes it to another level
With an enormous 38 inch 3840X1600 screens.
It’s hard to get across just how immersive
It feels on video.
The curved panel really does wrap around your setup.
With a 99% surge color accurate display,
It makes a lot of sense in professional uses,
Like photo and video editing,
Where that extra horizontal screen
Real estate can come in handy,
But it’s also good for gaming.
Not only does it have AMD’s Free Sync
To keep the refresh rate smooth in game,
But the actual panel itself is terrific as you’d expect.
Something I wasn’t expecting
Is just how good the built-in speakers are.
While getting a headset is still a good idea,
I had no problems gaming with monitor audio.
Around back, you’ll find the standard variety of ports,
But the coolest part is USB-C.
Plug the Blade Stealth in
And you’ve got a pair of USB 3 ports
On the monitor you can use
And if you have a less powerful laptop like a MacBook,
It’ll even charge over the same cable.
If you want to get your hands on this hotness,
LG actually has a contest going on right now
Where they’re giving away 15 of these
For the Ultra Wide Festival 2016.

While the Blade Stealth
Is a surprisingly killer little laptop?
If you want to get the most out of it,
Especially when it comes to gaming,
You’re going to want the Razor Core.
This takes advantage
Of the Thunderbolt 3 port on the Stealth
To let you install a full desktop graphics card.
It’s dead simple.
Just open up the Core, install a modern GPU
And plug the laptop in and you’re good to go.
While performance is definitely going to vary
Depending on which graphics card you use,
It makes a massive difference.
Ultra Wide display
Hooked into the Ultra Wide display,
You’re getting a rock solid experience.
You can also leave USB accessories and Ethernet
Plugged into the Core and while it does have a fan,
It’s still quieter than a lot of gaming PC’s.
The Core will also power the Stealth
While it’s connected,
Which makes it even cooler?
You can literally just pull
This tiny laptop out of your bag
And with a single cable, get a full gaming setup.
It feels like the future and I love it.
If you want some real portable gaming action,
You can get the Razor Turret,
Which is a mouse and keyboard?
That’s perfect for couch gaming.
The Stealth is totally powerful enough
To handle less intense gaming on its own,
But there’s always going to be a limit
On how much you want to do with a track pad.
The Turret pairs a wireless keyboard
With a mouse and slightly magnetic mouse pad.
It sounds weird, but it works surprisingly well.
There are plenty of times where I want
To game with a mouse and keyboard on a couch
And this is the best solution I’ve found yet.
It all folds up to a nice, portable package
And hiding inside the mouse
Is a USB dongle if you want to connect it?
To a system that doesn’t have Bluetooth.
It comes with a magnetic dock
That not only charges things,
But also keeps it nice and tidy on your desk.
It might not be crazy,
But I’m really happy with how the setup turned out.
It’s such a killer blend of portability and power.
As always, links to everything I talked about
Will be in the description.
Hopefully you guys enjoyed
And I will catch you in the next one.
