Razer knows everyone who likes to gamble, whether mouse, keyboard or other peripherals, Razer is always bringing out new and high quality hardware. Also in the field of gaming notebooks it is going well for the manufacturer.

Not just gaming!
The Book 13 is specifically designed for productivity. With a 16:10 display and Intel Tiger Lake on board, the notebook already has good conditions. The user can choose between a 1,080p display with or without touch or a 4K touchscreen with 3,840 x 2,400 pixels. The 13-inch display has thin edges and is therefore extremely compact, the lightest model of the three different configurations weighs just 1.34 kilograms. Depending on the variant, the user can look forward to an Intel Core i5-1135G7 or a Core i7-1165G7. Both are processors of the 11th generation and are said to have up to 20 percent more performance than the previous versions. In addition, there is the main memory of 8 to 16 GB RAM, which is permanently installed. In terms of memory, the Book 13 has a 256 GB to 512 GB PCIe SSD on board. This can be upgraded afterwards according to your wishes. The graphics card is an Iris-Xe, which also offers better performance than its predecessor. In addition, the Razer Book 13 has a Full-HD webcam, which is especially attractive in times of home office. With the four microphones you can go straight into your next online meeting. The notebook’s surround sound comes from the gaming sector, which enables 360° perception.
