Slimbook Executive Linux Ultrabook Upgrading Their CPUs

Jul 14, 2022

The Spanish-based company, Slimbook, has made available their next generation Slimbook Executive Linux ultrabooks with a 12th Gen Intel Alder Lake CPU.

Slimbook, the company well known for producing KDE Plasma-powered laptops, has given their Executive series a bit of a refresh by making them available with the 12 Gen Intel Alder Lake CPU. This new iteration adds considerably more power (14 Cores, 20 threads, 24MB cache, and up to 4.80 GHz clock speeds), improved battery life, and better graphics (via an integrated Iris Xe 4K chipset). Consumers will find 2 different models available with this configuration: A 14" 3K display, running at a 90Hz refresh rate (at 2880 x 1800 resolution) and a 16" model that sports NVIDIA RTX 3050Ti graphics with 4GB GDDR6 RAM (also at a 90 Hz refresh rate).

The 14" model does get a beefier battery (99WHr), whereas the 16" model’s battery is a smaller 82WHr. Both laptops include USB-C Thunderbolt 4, USB 3.2, HDMI 2.0, and USB-C 3.2 (with Display Port). The keyboards are backlit with large touchpads and the devices can be upgraded  up to 64GB DDR4 3200 Mhz RAM and up to 4TB NVMe SSD storage. Both versions include a 1080p Full-HD webcam with integrated stereo mic, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.1, 2W stereo speakers, and a Kensington Lock mount. You can select from numerous Linux distributions to be pre-installed (such as Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Debian, elementary OS, Pop!_OS, Linux Mint, and more). 

Price starts at approximately $1,322 USD for the 14" model and $1,627 for the 16". Order your new Slimbook Executive now.
