Razer Book (late 2021) review: Still slick, now with Windows 11

But the keyboard, sadly, is still as lousy as ever.

Razer Book
  • Expert Rating

    3.00 / 5

Pros

  • Sharp aluminium design with cool, quiet operation
  • 16:10 tuned display with excellent viewing angles
  • Smooth, generously sized trackpad

Cons

  • Mushy, low-travel keyboard that constantly misses keystrokes
  • No fingerprint reader

Bottom Line

Adding a few hardware tweaks alongside Windows 11 doesn't really change our opinion: A lousy keyboard torpedoes what Razer set out to accomplish with the Razer Book, a slickly designed laptop that ships without bloatware.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
