Reviews for the realme Book Slim i5

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

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.

realme Book Unboxing, Quick Review Philippines: New Frontier
Source: Unbox English
There’s plenty to like about the realme Book that’s being offered in the Philippines, and frankly the more players in the PC scene, the better. 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.
