Slimbook brings us, from Spain, something similar to what VANT offered us so far, the other Spanish brand that was dedicated to assembling computers with a pre-installed Ubuntu operating system. Only in this case SlimBook is focused on the laptop market (specifically ultrabooks, which are in such demand lately) where you can choose between having a pre-installed Windows 8 or 10 operating system or a Linux one.
Among the options given for Linux-based operating systems, we can choose between Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Ubuntu MATE, Debian, openSUSE, Fedora, Linux Mint, as well as others like Antegros. All of them pre-installed, selectable at the time of purchase, and without additional costs. On the other hand, those of Microsoft will have additional charges for the license of between € 120 to € 180 more that will have to be added to the final price.
As you can see, the selection of possible pre-installed Linux operating systems is not limited to Ubuntu like other competitors. And if your operating system is not among the lists, don't worry, Slimbook also offers you laptops without operating system to leave you complete freedom of selection, be it another Linux distribution, FreeBSD, etc. Although with those selected by the company, the compatibility of your hardware is 100% guaranteed. Although there is not much to choose from in terms of components, but it is great news ...
As for the hardware, currently offers four models powerful, slim and light, which are not badly priced. Its design is not bad at all, and inside they bring different hardware configurations for € 499, 599, 699 and € 799 with Intel Celeron, i3, i5 and i7 respectively. The fault that I see is the graphics card, which is Intel. On the other hand, it includes Samsung or Crucial brand SSD hard drive, 13 ″ screen, WiFi, Bluetooth, USB 3.0, aluminum exterior finish to better dissipate heat (turning the case into a great heatsink) ...more on your website.
