Why choose Slimbook?
We could say that they are very light and fast, its design and performance are really incredible, its components are top quality, and we don't want you to buy from us, we want you to choose us; but we'll let you decide why.
They end up the assembling in our country, Spain, with the best brands:
Let's talk about the warranty and service
Our notebooks come with 2 year warranty insitu in Spain, this means that if you have a manufacturing defect, we pick you up at your house for free (in Spain).
We have our own technical service in Spain, with more than enough experience in this portable electronics, and has also been authorized service for other top brands.
For Europe customers, the warranty would work like this: You'd send us the laptop, we'd proceed to repair it and send it back covering the cost for this last shipment.
At last, for outside Europe customers the client has to cover both shipments.
What is the difference between the CLASSIC, KATANA and KDE models?
The first difference is that the KATANA has Intel 6th generation processors. While the previous model, CLASSIC, has Intel 5th generation processors.
This involves changes in the integrated graphics too, KATANA being the most powerful integrating the HD520. But do not be fooled by the name, because the previous model although being called HD5000 has an inferior graphics performance.
These changes are associated with significant changes in the motherboard, which has been significantly enhanced.
As it relates to the display KATANA already has improved AntiGlare, anti-reflection panel and a higher color density, which gives the best view colors and less eyestrain.
There are also visual changes between both models, as the logo of our brand with a dim light that turns on when the computer is running. Or the possibility to choose the computer in 2 different colors: black and gold.
About the differences between our KATANA model and the upcoming KDE, there aren't internal hardware differences. The only difference is the exterior, silver was really popular with classic, and we keep getting questions about a possible silver katana so we saved that color for KDE only to encourage people to try it out.
Can I order my Slimbook with a Keyboard Layout that isn't available on the store?
First, these are the Keyboard Layouts we've available on our store:
Could it be upgraded?
RAM, unlike in many other ultrabooks, is not soldered to the motherboard, so it can be changed or upgraded. We assemble 4GB, 8GB and 16GB of RAM.
The Samsung or Crucial SSDs we assemble are available in 120GB, 250GB and 500GB capacities and they aren't welded to the plate so they can be changed.
The network card Wi-Fi which is an Intel Dual Band, can also be changed.
If you're wondering if you can make these changes for your own, you should know that being such a slim laptop it does not have a cover for the RAM, the lower base is a whole single piece. Unfortunately we have found adventurers who have opened the laptop and grated some of the tracks with screwdrivers, therefore we prefer you let that work to us. Upgrading the laptop some time after purchase is a service we provide, charging 30 € only, a figure much lower than other official technical services for other brands.
Any changes made in a Slimbook that has not been performed by our technical service will be exempt from warranty.
You can buy it with no secondary hard drive but you must choose a RAM and SSD. The SSD is a M.2, SATA and MSATA aren't supported. For the secondary drive it can be either SATA 2 or 3. RAM is 1600 MHz DDR3L with a 1,5 V voltage.
Installing the secondary drive isn't difficult if you're experienced at it, as you've to disassemble it all. If you damage the system while doing so it won't be covered on the warranty.
You can also buy it with no secondary disk, but not without RAM and primary disk. The SSD disk is M.2, SATA and mSATA isn't supported there. For the secondary disk though, it can be SATA2 or SATA3. RAM Memory is 1600 MHz DDR3L with 1.35V voltage.
Any changes made in a Excalibur that has not been performed by our technical service will be exempt from warranty.
How much does the laptop weight?
The weight of CLASSIC, KATANA or KDE with a 120GB SSD, and 4GB of RAM, is 1.39 kg (3.07 lbs~).
El peso de Slimbook Excálibur es de 2,25 kg.The weight of our EXCALIBUR model is of 2.25 kg (4.96 lbs~)
When you turn on the computer with the battery charged to the maximum (100%), the operating system indicates that the battery will last about 9 hours. Many laptop manufacturers indicate this time when selling their laptop but we do not want to lie, those nine hours are in a position of little use and little brightness screen, even if you turn off WiFi it'd lengthen the duration. But let's be honest here, if you want to know what the battery lasts with a normal use, our customers have proven durations of up to 8 hours.
The most interesting thing would be for you to give do a normal use of the computer, thinking that the battery will last for 6 to 8 hours and do not squander energy, such as turning off the bluetooth if you don't plan to use it and lowering the screen brightness if the environment allows it.
In our Excalibur model, the battery duration with a normal use lasts between 3 and 4 hours.
