Realme Book Slim Review – Best Laptop For Beginners in India
Source: Cashify English
Realme has established its devices across a range of price points within a few years, as well as expanding its offerings in other domains. With its new Realme Book Slim, the company has entered the Indian laptop market. You may think the laptop has an excellent set of features based on the specifications page. A 2K display, a compact profile, 65W quick charging, and a free upgrade to Windows 11. It’s worth noting, though, that the starting price tag of Rs 46,999 is for the laptop’s base model, which has a dual-core Intel Core i3 processor. Despite its MacBook-inspired look, the Realme Book Slim shines out in a crowd of laptops, which is one of the reasons I believe people would choose this laptop above others for its low pricing. Is it, however, enough to make it a good buy and convince customers to buy a first-generation product? We tried to figure it out in this Realme Book Slim review, and here is what we think.

Realme Book long term review: Very pleasantly surprised
Source: Soycincau English
The Realme Book faces stiff competition though in the thin-and-light space, with the Acer Swift 3 for instance priced at RM3,199 for an Intel Core i5-1135G7, 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage as well. There’s also the aforementioned Huawei MateBook 14 with the same silicon too, but that will set you back even more as it’s priced at RM4,599. Of course, regardless of which laptop you end up getting, I’d highly recommend getting them only when there’s a sale, seeing as manufacturers are expected to release newer versions of these laptops soon with Intel and AMD’s latest generation of mobile processors. But going back to the Realme Book, if you do end up with one for yourself for normal usage such as word processing and some mild content creation or even light gaming on the side, you’ll likely be pretty content with it. Do I think it’s the laptop to get? Well, not exactly, as it’s slightly pricey for the silicon you’re getting, but that’s mostly because I prefer to seek out performance. If you want something with a fantastic display and good enough hardware though, the Realme Book will likely be alright for you.

80% Realme Book Slim Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
Realme clearly has the current-gen MacBook Air in its sights. The Realme Book Slim comes in at a much lower price but has a lot of the same appeal. It's highly portable and has a crisp, high-resolution screen, which is something you don't usually see in this segment. Established Windows laptop makers should also take notice – there aren't many competitors with this combination of features in an ultraportable at this price. Even recent entrant Xiaomi doesn't quite target this market, though the 2021 Mi Notebook Pro will compete with the Core i5 variant of this laptop. The large, crisp display is the main attraction here. Battery life is good, and even the seemingly modest specifications of the lower-priced variant should be enough for most students, office workers, and home users. However, the overall usage experience lacks a little polish, and Realme could have done better with the keyboard, port selection, and cooling. Potential buyers should read the fine print carefully to see what exactly they get with each variant.

Realme Book Review: Slim and Premium Laptop for Only $600
Source: Awaqua English
The newly minted Realme Book laptop showed itself from a very positive side, but it was not without its drawbacks, but first, let’s talk about the advantages. For example, on the positive side, I can single out the presence of high-quality assembly and good materials used in the manufacture. I also liked the presence of the blue color of the case. In general, the design parameters were very good. Other than that, I can’t get past the 14-inch IPS screen with 2K resolution. The image quality and color reproduction were very good. Also, for everyday tasks, the performance of the laptop will be enough headlong. On the plus side, I can highlight a good and responsive keyboard with three-level backlighting. But the disadvantages of the laptop model can be attributed to this lack of useful ports and connections. That is, it will definitely be necessary to purchase a USB hub for the device. I also did not like the brightness of the screen at 400 nits and the not particularly high battery life.

86% Realme Book Review: Off To A Great Start

The Realme Book (Slim), as I mentioned earlier, is priced at Rs 44,999 in India for the base variant that we reviewed. For that price, you are getting a fantastic machine with a 2K display, a beautifully thin and light form-factor, a great keyboard and trackpad combo, and reliable performance for day-to-day workloads thanks to the 11th Gen Intel Core i3-1115G4 processor. The Realme Book (Slim) is arguably one of the best laptops in this price range. If you have a budget of RS 45,000 and you are not looking to bother with any resource-intensive workloads, then look no further. It's also going to be my go-to recommendation for professionals looking to buy a reliable machine for office work. Xiaomi's Mi NoteBook Pro/ Ultra comes close and they should be on your list too if you are willing to extend the budget. This is a fantastic start for Realme in the laptop space and I can't wait to see more laptops from them in the future.

It is also better as compared to the other bulky and pricey laptops available in the market.

To wrap up this review, the Realme Book Slim is an absolute steal for the price—especially the i3 variant. It has an incredible display, sleek design, decent keyboard, large trackpad, loud speaker setup, notable performance, and the battery life’s not all bad either. For a sub-50K laptop, Realme has raised the bar for just how good a budget laptop can get. Yet, its biggest disadvantage is that the RAM isn’t upgradable—whereas the i5 variant feels a tad bit expensive and incompetent compared to the direct competition as well.

80% Realme Book Slim review: A sleek laptop with lots of goodness
Source: India Today English
Realme Book Slim is one of the most stylish and convenient laptops you can get for its price. I absolutely love the premium build quality and sleek design that make this laptop very portable. Its good looks complement the laptop, and I think they are one of the reasons customers will buy it. On top of that is an impressive display with a 2K resolution, good colours, and high brightness. The keyboard is among the best I have typed on. The performance is also good, but it has to do more with what you want to do on your laptop. And it does not have to be gaming. Battery life is also a bit underwhelming for people who are mostly on the go. If you write a lot, work on Excel sheets, or browse the internet, Realme Book Slim will not disappoint you. For an introductory price of Rs 44,999, the Realme Book Slim is a good buy.

Realme Book Slim review: Tad expensive, but a whole lot better than peers
Source: Business Standard English
Priced at Rs 46,999, the Realme Book Slim is expensive when compared with most other 11th Gen Intel Core i3 laptops available in the market currently. However, it will not be appropriate to compare it with other laptops – because it is not like others. A debutant laptop by a non-legacy brand in the consumer PC segment, the Realme Book Slim challenges the conventions set by legacy brands, and it does so with confidence. That said, look no further if you need a laptop on budget for home and on-the-go use. The Realme Book Slim is a solid deal for its price.

Despite being the first attempt at a laptop, Realme has absolutely got the basics right. You get excellent build quality, an impressive display, decent performance, and more. Yes, it’s not perfect and has its own share of shortcomings, but those issues are not big enough to sway your buying decision. Like most laptops under Rs 50,000 (USD 700), this one is meant for occasional use, such as surfing the web, watching movies and TV shows, or editing data in Microsoft Excel. If that is what you are looking for, then the Realme Book Slim makes a pretty good case for itself for the introductory price of Rs 44,999.

70% Realme Book review: Compelling, but not complete
Source: Android Authority English
The Realme Book is a solid laptop on paper. It has an amazing display that rivals screens from laptops costing twice as much. The other specifications stack up nicely, too. In reality, the Realme Book has all the problems of a first-generation product. It’s an unfinished product and has many little issues that drag down its appeal. It feels very Realme to me, which means it is, overall, unpredictable. I loved the idea of the laptop before testing it, but during my use, I have come to see it for what it really is — a public beta test. If your needs are urgent, though, you should consider looking elsewhere. This laptop sits in a crowded market segment, and there are plenty of other laptops capable of delivering a more reliable experience.

Realme Book hands-on review: The Windows MacBook Air that you can’t buy
Source: Laptop Mag English
The Realme Book has some issues, but those are easily forgiven in the face of what is a great notebook — not just for Realme’s first laptop, but for this category in general. When it comes to direct MacBook Air competitors, the obvious thought always hangs over me: you could just put up a little more cash and get a MacBook Air, which will be more powerful and have a better battery life. But that isn’t always an option for folks. So for what the Realme Book is, you get a good ultra portable at an impressively affordable price. If you need something small and lightweight for conquering the daily workload and enjoying casual entertainment on the go, Realme has made a seriously tempting option — so it’s a shame that most of us can’t buy it.

Source: Phandroid English
For being the brand’s first laptop, the Realme Book Slim is pretty impressive. It may fall behind the competition a bit when it comes to direct spec-for-spec comparisons and price, but it still offers a great value if you’re matching it up against some of the bigger players like Lenovo and Dell. With this being Realme’s first laptop, they’ve delivered a very solid device that they can be proud of. If you like the look and are fine with the battery performance, you’ll definitely be happy if you choose the Realme Book Slim for your next laptop.

Realme Book Review: First Notebook But Killer With i5-1135G7
Source: Igeekphone English
Realme Book is the first show of realme in the PC field. It has a price that is close enough to the people. In terms of appearance, workmanship, screen, performance, heat dissipation, and many other aspects, it has brought dazzling performance beyond traditional brand products of the same level. Based on the basic experience, it has quite strong strengths. With the continuous enrichment and improvement of the cross-screen interconnection ecosystem in the future, it is believed that realme’s notebook products can gain stronger market competitiveness. For the actual purchase, it is recommended that you buy the 16GB version. On the one hand, the price difference is not big, and the fully-fitted screen will make the texture of the whole machine a new level.

realme Book Review Philippines: Good Start
Source: Unbox English
The realme Book impressed us in our review for the device in the Philippines. It does have a few minor issues like limited port selection and the slightly dim screen, but that’s more or less negated by its good feature set as well as higher than average performance VS similarly-specc’d laptops. The laptop’s price is pretty attractive as well, especially if you pre-order since realme will be taking a fair chunk off of the laptop’s intended SRP.

realme Book (Intel Core i5-1135G7) Review
Source: Yugatech English
The realme Book is not the perfect machine, but it certainly gets a lot of things right. It manages to fit in a 14-inch 2K display, a large trackpad, powerful silicon, and decent battery life. It houses all of that in a sleek and sexy package, while in an insanely affordable price range. With an SRP of PHP37,990 for the i3 version and PHP47,990 for the i5 version, the realme Book is definitely now one of the most attainable premium laptops in the Philippine market. I was initially expecting the prices to be slightly lower, though you still generally get what you’re paying for with the actual prices. This is genuinely a good first attempt from a company that was never known for laptops, and if they can learn from the shortcomings of this pilot release, then they can end up being a force to reckon with in the years to come.

The missing part of the story is price: with so many other established players already in the PC scene, realme needs to price their laptop aggressively to lure buyers away from the offerings of their competitors.

70% Realme Book Slim Laptop Review
Source: Slashgear English
Realme launched its first laptop at a time when laptop sales have surged thanks to the rise in demand for portable work and school computers last year. Then again, the PC market has always been filled with laptops bearing nearly the same specs, varying in design, proprietary technologies, and prices to stand out from the rest. More than any other laptop, the Realme Book Slim is really the sum of its parts. It’s hardly the only 14-inch laptop with a 2K display, nor is it the thinnest, the lightest, or the cheapest in the market. With a price tag of roughly $800 for the Core i5 model, however, it could very well be one of the thinnest 14-inch laptop with a 2K display under $1,000. Sadly, the short battery life and noisy fans sour the deals a bit, but there will always be some people that will be able to live with these flaws for something that can offer them more for less.
