HIGHLIGHTS

  • Realme Book Slim comes with up to an 11th Gen Intel Core i5 chipset.
  • The laptop sports a 14-inch 2K display with thin bezels.
  • Realme Book Slim comes with a Thunderbolt 4 port.

Realme Book Slim, the company’s first laptop, will go on sale for the first time today. The brand-new laptop from Realme comes with an impressive set of specifications. You have a 2K display, which means the content on the screen is going to look a lot sharper and more colourful. There is up to an 11th Gen Intel Core i5 processor on the laptop, which means high-grade performance. And apart from the hardware, the Realme Book Slim is one of the thinnest and lightest laptops you can find on the market right now.

At the launch, Realme said the Realme Book Slim is slimmer than the MacBook Pro and lighter than MacBook Air. Both these comparisons make sense for customers because they get one of the sleekest laptop designs for a lot less than what the regular MacBook models cost. Because of the sleek profile, the Realme Book Slim has fewer ports, but you get the Thunderbolt 3 port onboard.
