How to be productive when you are playing

Gaming PC maker Razer has just released its Razer Book 13 today, which it's calling a "hyper focused productivity laptop".

The emphasis on productivity means Razer also strove to include a shedloads of ports, as well as interesting lighting features that could help highlight keyboard shortcuts.

The Book 13 is also the company's first Intel Evo-certified notebook, meaning it meets certain requirements for performance, battery life and wake time. The Book 13 has a 13.4-inch IPS display that comes in touch or nontouch configurations.

If you opt for the matte nontouch version, you'll only get Full HD+ resolution, while the touch models also come in UHD+ (3,840 x 2,400).

The touchscreens are also covered in Gorilla Glass for better durability and you can add an anti-reflective coating to reduce glare. All configurations feature a 16:10 aspect ratio, which is new to Razer's family of laptops and lets you see more on the screen at once than older 16:9 devices.

The Book 13 has a 720p webcam in its slim bezels, and it's Windows Hello compatible. There isn't a fingerprint scanner here, though. All this is not bad for a device which is 0.6 inches thick and weighs 2.95 pounds.

It also comes with two Thunderbolt 4 USB-C ports, a USB-A socket (at USB 3.2 speeds), a microSD card reader, a 3.5mm audio jack and an HDMI 2.0 slot.

The Book 13 starts at $1,199. Pre-order starts today, with shipping to be followed later this month.
