Spanish PC seller Slimbook sells laptops with a choice of Windows or Linux, and the company’s latest is the Executive Slimbook, a 2.2-pound laptop with a 14-inch display, 2880 x 1800 pixels 90 Hz and an Intel Core i7-1165G7 processor.
It is available at Slimbook for â¬ 1,299 ($ ââ1,540) and more.
While it’s not exactly cheap, the price includes a high-resolution display, compact design, and modern specs, including a Thunderbolt 4 port, 90W USB-C / Thunderbolt charging adapter, and PCIe NVMe storage.
Unfortunately, the starting price only covers 8GB of RAM and 250GB of storage, but the laptop supports up to 64GB of user-replaceable DDR4-3200 memory and has two M.2 slots. for up to 4TB of SSD storage.
Ports include HDMI 2.0, USB-C and USB-A, and a 3.5mm audio jack. And the laptop has stereo speakers, WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1, and a 720p webcam with infrared support for facial recognition.
It also has a compact design thanks to the magnesium alloy frame. The notebook weighs 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds) and is 15 mm (0.59) thick.
The laptop can be configured with a choice of operating systems including Windows 10, Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Manjaro, Fedora, or KDE Neon, or you can request a dual-boot version with Windows + another operating system . Slimbook also offers a range of keyboard layouts including US and UK English, French, German, and Spanish.
Slimbook appears to use an OEM laptop design for its Executive laptop – the laptop looks virtually identical to the recently released Schenker Vision 14 and Tuxedo InfinityBook Pro. Although the Slimbook Executive has a higher starting price than these laptops, it also comes standard with a 90Hz 2880 x 1800 pixel display and a Core i7 processor, while other laptops based on this design start with. a 60 Hz screen 1920 x 1200 pixels and a Core i5-135G7 processor.
