Realme Book Slim specifications
The Realme Book Slim runs on Windows 10 (free upgrade to Windows 11) and has a 14-inch IPS display with a resolution of 2K (2,160 x 1,440 pixels), 100 percent sRGB color space and an aspect ratio of 3: 2 . The display should be up to 33 percent brighter than typical laptops with 400 nits of peak brightness. In addition, you get narrow bezels with a thickness of 5.3 mm on the sides and 8.45 mm on the top. Realme claims the thin bezel design helped improve the screen-to-case ratio to 90 percent – more than the 82 percent screen-to-case ratio available on the Apple MacBook Air.
Under the hood, the Realme Book Slim comes with an 11th generation Intel Core i5-1135G7 CPU, paired with Intel Iris Xe graphics and up to 8 GB LPDDR4x RAM. You also get up to 512 GB PCIe SSD storage. In addition, the laptop has a “storm cooling” thermal management system with two fans, which has two copper pipes for heat dissipation.
Realme has pre-installed a feature called PC Connect that allows users to connect their smartphone to the Realme Book Slim and use the phone’s screen directly on their laptop. It also offers a faster file transfer experience that works by simply dragging and dropping files on the laptop’s display. PC Connect offers intelligent application integration that enables the system to recognize the file types of most of the data available on your phone so that it can be accessed seamlessly on your laptop.
The Realme Book Slim has a backlit keyboard with a three-level backlight setting and a key travel of 1.3 mm. There’s also a touchpad that supports multi-touch gestures and Microsoft’s PTP precision touch technology. There is also a two-in-one fingerprint power button.
On the multimedia front, the Realme Book Slim has two Harman speakers that are supposed to deliver an immersive surround sound effect. The speakers are also supported by DTS audio technology. The laptop has two microphones that use artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms and preprocessing technology to suppress noise when participating in a video conference.
Connectivity options on the Realme Book Slim include Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth, a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C port, a USB-A 3.1 Gen 1 port, a Thunderbolt 4 port, and a 3.5mm Headphone jack. However, the entry-level version Intel Core i3 does not contain a Thunderbolt 4 port, but a regular USB Type-C port. The laptop has a 54 Wh battery that delivers up to 11 hours of battery life on a single charge. It supports 65W Super Fast Charge, which supposedly charges 50 percent of the built-in battery in 30 minutes. The included charger also supports 30W Dart Charge technology, which means you can charge your Realme phone or any other compatible device using the Realme Book Slim adapter.
The Realme Book Slim consists of an aluminum alloy unibody design with a mirror logo. After all, the laptop is 15.5mm thick and weighs 1.38kg.
