Summer is getting hot and perhaps you want a new laptop to take somewhere cooler to do a little work and light gaming? Slimbook recently upgraded a bunch of their machines. This is all in addition to the recently announced KDE Slimbook 4 laptop.
The latest is the Executive model which comes with an Intel Core i7-12700H and there's two different models with a 14" and a 16" screen. The smaller of the two comes packed with Intel Irix Xe 4K while the bigger model sports an NVIDIA RTX 3050Ti. That's not the only difference, you also either get the 14" with 2880 x 1800 or 16" with 2560 x 1600 although both are 90 Hz panels with anti-glare included. You also get a minimum of 16GB RAM and a 500GB SSD NVMe drive included.
As for ports there's plenty including 2 x USB-A 3.2 Gen1, 1x USB-C 3.2 Gen2 w/video output (DisplayPort 1.4), 1x Thunderbolt 4 w/video output (DisplayPort 1.4a) and PD charge (90W) and 1x HDMI 2.0.
Pricing starts at €1,299 for the 14" model and €1,599 for the 16".
Slimbook also recently upgraded the lower-end but still powerful Pro X which is an AMD model with the Ryzen 7 5700U that you can get as either a 14" or a 15.6" model both with a 1080p IPS screen. With this you get Radeon Vega 8 Graphics, 8GB RAM on the base model, 250GB SSD NVMe minimum.
For the ports you get 2 x USB 3.1, 1 x USB 3.1 Type C (video out 1.4 & PD Charge), 1 x USB 2.0 and 1 x HDMI 2.0.
On the Pro X, Slimbook say they include their own AMD Controller which enables you to get "full control over your AMD's processor performance and power consumption" along with a "firmware level performance profile (disguised as a BIOS switch) built-in that will let this power efficient U series processor reach the same performance levels from the top tier H series processors".
Pricing for the Pro X starts at €999.95 for 14" and €1,049 for the 15.6".
Looks like there's plenty of options nowadays for people after a new laptop that fully supports Linux!
