Another New Linux Laptop has Arrived

Jan 19, 2021

Slimbook has released a monster of a Linux gaming laptop.

For anyone looking to up their Linux gaming experience, the Spanish PC manufacturer, Slimbook, has announced a beast of a machine, called the Slimbook Titan. What makes this laptop so special is that it’s powered by an AMD Ryzen 7 5800H (with speeds of up to 4.4 GHz) and includes an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 GPU (with 8GB of memory). That’s a lot of power, which should be able to meet and exceed your gaming needs.

The base model includes 16GB of 3200 Mhz RAM, but you can up that spec to either 32GB or 64GB. The default storage is a 500GB NVMe SSE, but can be spec’d out to 4TB (even including  an optional RAID array).

The aesthetics should please any gamer looking for a sleek machine. With a black aluminum body, a 15.6" 2K IPS display (with 165 Hz refresh rate), and a backlit (RGB lighting) opto-mechanical keyboard, infrared facial recognition (that works with Linux out of the box), this machine packs plenty of “wow” factor.

As for ports, The Titan includes three USB 3.0, one USB Type-C, HDMI, and RJ45 ethernet.

Slimbook is currently taking preorders for the Titan. The base machine will set you back 1599,00 € (or $1930.00 USD). Fully spec’d out, the machine (64GB of RAM, 4TB of local storage, and RAID) is 2896,00 € (or $3496.00 USD). The only Linux distribution they offer is Ubuntu, but you can also purchase it with no operating system (so you can install your operating system of choice).
