Slimbook PRO X: get to know the best Linux laptop in depth

Slimbook Pro X

Slimbook has been generating hype for a few days and gradually publishing some data about its new ultrabook called PRO X. You can see all the complete details in the official website of the Spanish firm. But, as expected, they continue to bet on quality and design without forgetting the freedom that comes from using your favorite GNU / Linux distributions installed on these marvels of equipment.

From now you can buy it from this link. And without a doubt, you will want to do it, since the data that we know is not surprising. And I take the opportunity to remember again, although I already did it yesterday, that Slimbook will have two stands at the OpenEXPO. In them you can see this new laptop and much more. So I encourage you to attend this event on free technologies tomorrow the 20th. If you have not bought the ticket, you can do it at the entrance ...

Sticking with the Slimbook PRO X, nothing to envy to Apple's Macbook Pro, but with a Linux heart. In fact, to leave no doubt, I add a comparative table between both models:
