Realme Malaysia has brought the Realme Book thin-and-light laptop to our shores, just a day after it was revealed in a global launch. It’s set to go up against the likes of the Huawei MateBook D and Honor MagicBook series in the laptop market.
Realme Book specs
To recap, the Realme Book has a 14-inch, 3:2 IPS display with a resolution of 2160 x 1440 pixels. The display has a peak brightness of 400nits and covers 100% of the sRGB colour gamut too. It has a 90% screen-to-body ratio and the display gets a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass too for scratch resistance. You won’t however find a touchscreen option on the Realme Book.
Powering the laptops are 11th Gen Intel Core processors, with either the Core i3-1115G4 or the Core i5-1135G7 underneath. The Core i3 model is mated to 8GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD and has Intel UHD graphics. It’ll only have support for WiFi 5 and Bluetooth 5.1, and for I/O you get 1x USB-A 3.1 port, 2x USB-C 3.2 port and a 3.5mm audio jack.
Meanwhile, the Realme Book with the Core i5 has up to 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD along with Intel Xe graphics. Realme has also upgraded its connectivity to WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2. One of the USB-C 3.2 ports on the Core i5 models has also been buffed up to a Thunderbolt 4 port.
Keeping the lights on is a 54Whr battery with support for 65W Super-Fast Charge that nets you a 50% charge in just 30 minutes. According to Realme, you’ll be able to get up to 11 hours of use with the Realme Book. You’ll also find an extra large touchpad, a 3-mode backlit keyboard, stereo speakers, a fingerprint sensor and compatibility with Windows 11 whenever it launches. There’s a PC Connect function too, which lets you mirror your smartphone onto the laptop.
Impressively, all this gets housed into a chassis that’s just 14.9mm thick, weighing 1.38kg. The all-metallic body is made of CNC and sandblasted aluminum, and comes in two colour choices: Real Grey and Real Blue.
