Slimbook Executive: Lightweight Linux Ultrabook with Top-Tier Screen

Filed under

It’s time for appointment with the Slimbook Executive.

Now, as names go the ‘Slimbook Executive’ makes me think of the 1980s — beige PCs, shoulder pads, leatherette diary organisers, and a veritable Ozone of hairspray.

But the Executive‘s specs are anything but dated — though they will be a touch familiar if you read our article on the TUXEDO InfinityBook last month.

  • Slimbook Goes All in with a Linux Laptop that Focuses on the Display and the Power

    Slimbook offers several Linux-powered machines for all types of users. Recently, the company released the Slimbook Titan, which was an all-out powerhouse for gamers (including an AMD Ryzen 5000 series CPU and NVIDIA RTX 30 Series GPU).

    The new laptop, the Slimbook Executive, turns its focus on professional users with more than enough power to be productive and a display that should be brilliant enough to stand up against the competition.

    The Executive is a 14", 1 Kg laptop that includes an Intel Core i7-1165G7 CPU and Iris X 1.30 GHz GPU that can power up to 4 displays. But the built-in display is something pretty special. The Slimbook Executive includes a 14" display running at 3K resolutions, a 90 Hz refresh rate with a 400 nits max brightness, 99% sRGB true color, 16:10 LTPS antiglare, and 89% viewing angles. So not only is this display beautiful, it can be viewed in most conditions and from numerous angles.

  • Slimbook reveal the Slimbook Executive 14" ultrabook

    Need a reasonably high-end Linux powered ultrabook? Slimbook think they have it ready with the Slimbook Executive. This is another "3K" laptop with a 16:10 2880x1800 screen and a sweet 90Hz refresh rate,.

    Announced today, they claim "Our new ultrabook bests even our top sales champion, the Slimbook ProX. The Executive is even lighter, has a sturdier chassis with an elegant and minimalist design, a higher resolution display, larger battery and better I/O.". Not only that, they say it rivals the likes of the Microsoft's Surface Book or the Zenbook Ultralight from Asus.

  • Slimbook Executive is a Reasonably High-End Linux Powered Laptop

    Slimbook Executive is the new premium equipment of the Spanish brand, a laptop that comes to improve what has already been seen with the ProX series.

    The Slimbook Executive is one of the brand’s latest hardware offerings that’s targeted towards professional who required a powerful piece of equipment to handle their everyday workflow. It aims to compete in the segment of high-end ultrabook laptops, such as the Microsoft Surface or the ASUS ZenBook Ultralight, both in performance as well as in design and dimensions.

    This laptop comes as a new member of the family with enhanced features versus the Slimbook ProX. The Slimbook Executive has greater lightness, a more robust construction, higher screen resolution, a battery with more capacity for greater autonomy, and improvements in connectivity.

"OEMs from Europe are also focusing on GNU / Linux systems."

  • Slimbook launches light and thin 14-inch Executive laptop with 3K 16:10 90 Hz display and Intel Tiger Lake-U processor

    You know the demand for laptops is clearly on the rise when even Europe is seeing new OEMs popping up. Breaking into the global market directly with Windows-based models might be tough, so the new OEMs from Europe are also focusing on GNU / Linux systems. Just like Germany has the Schenker / XMG OEM with the Tuxedo subsidiary, Spain offers similar solutions through its relatively new Slimbook OEM. Apart from catering both for the Windows and Linux crowds, Slimbook also focuses to stay true to its name and deliver lightweight but powerful notebooks, and this can easily be seen with the new Executive models that feature Intel Tiger Lake-U processors packed in a 14-inch chassis that weighs only 2.2 lbs (1 kg) and is 0.59-inch (15 mm) thick.

    As with most slim and light models, the Slimbook Executive is geared more towards premium users. The magnesium alloy chassis appears to be made by Tongfang and is identical with those from Schenker Vision 14 and Tuxedo InfinityBook Pro, but the default price is noticeably higher. This is because Slimbook is including more advanced features like a 2880 x 1800 16:10 LTPS screen with 90 Hz refresh rate, 400 nit maximum brightness and 99% sRGB color gamut. It also comes equipped with the Intel Core i7-1165G7 CPU integrating an Iris Xe iGPU, which can be coupled with up to 64 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM and up to 4 TB of SSD storage through two M.2 slots.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
