The new Razer Book 13 is coming to steal Intel x86 MacBook fans away from Apple

Razer is coming at us today with the new Razer Book 13, which, according to the press release is a Tiger Lake laptop aimed at “go-getters, side-hustlers, and spirited entrepreneurs.” So, it may be time to get excited if you happen to be one, or more, of the above.

The way they’ve described it makes it sound like a piece of fine art sculpture. It’s “carved from a single block of aluminum,” and “anodized with a mercury white finish.” But, this lightweight, aluminium chassis means the Razer Book 13 models weigh around the 3lb mark, and are just over half an inch thick. To top off the light and sleek look Razer is going for, the 13.4 inch panels are skirted by apparently the “world’s thinnest display bezels”.

Which all is to say it looks a lot like an Apple MacBook Pro.

The specs follow two main configurations: Option one is an Intel Core i5 1135G7, with 2.4GHz base frequency and 3.8GHz boost clock. This comes with 8GB LPDDR4 memory, but is only available with a 256GB PCIe M.2 SSD, and is devoid of touchscreen tech and Gorilla Glass for the FHD display.
