Razer has been a force in the gaming laptop and accessory space with its sleek builds and powerful hardware. And now they're taking things beyond the niche and into the mainstream with the Razer Book 13, which is constructed from a single block of aluminum and designed to rival other productivity-focused laptops like the MacBook Pro.

The laptop, which weighs just 2.95 lbs, houses plenty of power courtesy of an 11th-generation Intel Core i7 processor with speeds up to 4.7GHz and 16GB of RAM. You have two options with the 13.4" screen — HD or UHD+ touchscreen — with the latter being our preferred choice for those eye-popping 4K visuals. Other key specs include a 4-mic array/HD webcam setup and 14 hours of battery life on a single charge.

And unlike the MacBook Pro, this is loaded with a wide array of ports that will be handy for professionals and creatives alike: a microSD card reader, an HDMI 2.0 port, two USB-C ports with Thunderbolt 4, one USB 3.2 Type-A, and a headphone jack.

If you like what you see, the Razer Book 13 is available to pre-order here with pricing kicking off at $1,200 USD.
