Best laptops for Linux we have tried ever. All our company use Pro X model for devops and developers. Components works perfectly with the kernel, and as the hardware is specifically selected for Linux, it make the most of the power of the components.
After one year of using slimbook pro x 14" (16x AMD Ryzen 7 5700U), my experience is overall positive. I use the laptop every day, for about 12 hours, running multithreaded programs and simulations. Never experienced a glitch. The CPU fan is often turned off. When in operation, it is very quiet. The battery lasts 4-5 hours when running multiple and heavy applications, otherwise 8 hours for more typical laptop use (battery health is still 100%)...
The quality of the PROX 14 is amazing, the size of the Katana 2 improving the usable area (screen, keyboard and mouse), what a work of engineering well executed with only 1 kg of weight. The best in laptops in terms of power, privacy and control (freedom to do what you want). Excellent customer support! You are like William Wallace in Braveheart, but with computers ^^ PS: I still use my 2017 Katana 2 for work, personal and gaming.
I placed an order requesting delivery on a precise date, which turned out to be very early given the supply conditions. They immediately contacted me to consult me about possible variations in components and always with my consent they found a way to deliver the equipment on time. Linux preinstalled and ready to use on a very reliable computer. I won't need a replacement for that computer for a very long time, but as soon as I need another one for a different use I won't hesitate to buy a Slimbook again.
I bought a ProX 15 computer with AMD processor in 2020. Everything has been working perfectly. A couple of months ago the keyboard was not responding properly and I contacted technical support. The answers were immediate. Even though my warranty expired, they left the ticket open until I could send it in. In less than 1 week I had the computer back, in perfect condition, repaired (the keyboard), with a fan cleaning (I didn't explicitly ask for it) and a BIOS update (I asked for it and they did it for free). Very very very very happy with all the Slimbook team. I may order the next generation ProX again (2024? 2025?...we'll see...). THANK YOU!
I am a software engineer and I needed a laptop with a good processor, a large RAM memory, thin, with a good battery and good qualities. I could not find a laptop that fit within these features and not at a price that was excessive, but when I discovered the SLIMBOOK brand I fell in love. After months of working with it I give a 10 to the laptop because it has everything. In addition, the technical team and customer service is great.
I sum it up as "Now I'm not looking where to buy a new computer, now I'm going straight to Slimbook to get it". Undoubtedly the best computer I've had so far. Exceptional performance and finish. If you top it off with great customer service there is no room for doubt, Slimbook ALWAYS. Grateful for your work
