The Razer Blade Stealth is like a MacBook and gaming laptop combined, and is on sale for $500 off

A boss gaming setup at home is the dream. Double screens, a high-end GPU, some neon lights to set the mood — maybe a fan to combat the sweat gathering from sitting there for six hours. The works. Unfortunately, not everyone's current situation warrants a room dedicated to gaming — or even a laptop dedicated to gaming. Good thing there's a best-of-both-worlds alternative: The Razer Blade Stealth 13.3-inch laptop can tackle both gaming and business needs on the go, and it's on sale for $500 off at Best Buy. SEE ALSO: The definitive breakdown of the best laptops out right now At 13.3 inches, this Stealth Ultrabook is Razer's baby of the bunch and a revamped version of the 12.5-inch model. It shed the clunky bezels, got a compact aluminum design (stealthy, as some may say), and has a bigger, 13.3-inch screen (measured diagonally) fit into the same body as the 12.5-inch wide predecessor.

At 13.3 inches, this Stealth Ultrabook is Razer's baby of the bunch and a revamped version of the 12.5-inch model. It shed the clunky bezels, got a compact aluminum design (stealthy, as some may say), and has a bigger, 13.3-inch screen (measured diagonally) fit into the same body as the 12.5-inch wide predecessor. This 13.3-inch screen isn't 4K like the 12.5-inch model, but a 12.5-inch screen can feel cramped. And anyway, this Razer's 3,200 x 1,800 (QHD+) display is so crisp that you probably won't notice the lack of 4K. Don't worry, it's still a touchscreen.

It's not as much of a gaming laptop as the Razer Blade Pro, but it's fast. The Stealth's Intel UHD Graphics 620will get the job done for gaming on the go, and reams of high-bandwidth LPDDR3 RAM plus Turbo Boost Technology make for speedy computing and handling of editing apps. Essentially the speed of a MacBook, but on Windows.

And all power to you if you're fine with lugging the 15.6-inch Pro around, but let's be real: Pulling that bad boy out in public can get obnoxious. As Mashable's Ray Wong writes:

"Is Razer finally growing up and shedding its gamer badge? Heck no. But at least you'll be able to take your Stealth Blade to class or a meeting without looking like a total douchebag."

Shrug emoji.

Other important features include an 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor, 16 GB of memory and 512 GB of SSD, a Thunderbolt USB-C, full-sized HDMI and USB ports, a backlit keyboard, and nine hours of battery life.

Regularly $1,699.99, you can save $500 and get it on sale for $1,199.99. (Psst: This sale is so good, the 512 GB is $200 cheaper than the 256 GB on Razer's site.)
