Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Good build quality
The laptop's chassis is made of aluminium which gives it a very "premium" feel. It's extremely lightweight at 1.36kg and rather thin at 1.8cm.
Pro Comes with Linux pre-installed
The KDE Slimbook comes with KDE Neon, a Ubuntu derivative out of the box.
Pro Decent screen
Very good screen, nice build quality and solid aluminium feeling.
Pro Optimized for use with KDE software
This laptop was developed with help from KDE developers and its performance with KDE apps was tested thoroughly.
Con Low quality touch-pad
The first-generation touchpad was quite cheap, plastique feeling, imprecise. Hopefully, they have improved on the new Elan touchpad.
Con Shipping outside the EU is rather expensive
Since this laptop is built by a Spanish company, shipping outside the EU is rather expensive and can go as much as $106.
Con Fairly expensive
The KDE Slimbook is a fairly expensive laptop, with the base model having a price of 729€ even though it only has 4GB of RAM. The price is even higher when you have to take into account shipping costs if you are buying outside of the EU.
