Reviewers from pcmag have found the following***:
The 2020 Blade Stealth 13 is an improvement on the past model, in design if not on performance. The Max-Q version of the GTX 1650 Ti just is not much improved over the previous Stealth. The battery life on the 2020 Stealth is good, even if it's not topping the charts.

Pros
  • Sleek, lightweight design
  • High-refresh display
  • Good battery life
  • Long-lasting battery
Cons
  • No Thunderbolt 3 port
  • No Thunderbolt 4 port

processor is fine but outpaced elsewhere, largely by AMD hardware. Core i7-1165G7 scored 5,455 in PC Mark 10 and 4,470 in Geekbench 5. AMD's Ryzen 7 4800U also outpaces the Intel CPU in scores of around 5,800. Intel only has an advantage in single-threaded benchmarks and, even then, the margins are slim. GTX 1660 Ti is almost 10,000 points faster – and the RTX 2060 found in the Acer Predator Helios 300 scores 34,000.

Pros
  • Superb gaming performance

Cons
  • CPU throttling
  • Mediocre keyboard

Reviewers from techradar have found the following***:
The Razer Blade Stealth 13 is rocking a 13-inch 120Hz display that hits 100% of the sRGB spectrum. Colors on the screen are rich with phenomenal detail from gaming to tasks like video editing or photo editing. There is a 4K 60Hz touch display option available for a couple of hundred dollars more, but considering the system specs are the same, it's a no-go.

Pros
  • Gorgeous 120Hz display
  • Comfortable keyboard
  • Excellent gaming performance
Cons
  • Average battery life
  • No Windows Hello facial recognition

, in addition to a quad-core Intel Core i7-1065G7 processor, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD. The Stealth ran Shadow of the Tomb Raider on its highest settings at an average of 45fps. For regular office tasks, the Blade does just fine. Battery life was good, but the profile you choose has a significant impact on results.

Pros
  • Excellent gaming performance
  • Attractive design
  • Good battery life
Cons
  • Slightly heavier than the Zephyrus G14
