Razer Blade Stealth as a Programmer's Ultrabook?


Apr 1, 2013
Hello everyone, I am currently looking for an ultrabook to use in college that is nice and lightweight. I am a "Game Programming" major at school and need a new laptop for classes, as all I have now is my desktop. The school has these minimum requirements for a laptop for someone in this major:

-A system running Windows
-A computer that has a 2.4 GHz or faster processor
-4 GB or more RAM
-500 MB or better video card running at 1280x 768
-Laptops Wireless capable

I am wondering if the Razer Blade Stealth would be a good option for a programmer to use. I like it's small size for carrying around to all my classes. Is there anything that would make this laptop a bad choice for college?

Any comments you guys have, or recommendations for different ultrabooks, are extremely welcome!

Thanks in advance!
