It's better to spend a little more and get what Realme tries to copy.

Penk2856, 04 Jan 2022Dare to leaptopI don't understand why you bore so much hate for Realme and their value products. I am from India and really like some of their products if not all. Recently along with this Realme Pad I also bought their first ever laptop, the Realme Book. Granted this laptop is an Apple MacBook impersonator, but then look how well they copied and how good the laptop is for its asking price. Renowned Youtuber Dave2d's review was an eye opener for me. He said this laptop will disrupt USA & European markets if ever launched.

Here in India, Realme have big presence and we are fortunate to have both Intel Core i3 (8GB) & Core i5 (8GB) variants for ₹45K ($600, €520) & ₹57K ($760, €660) respectively. What is even more impressive is during our festive season in Oct, 2021, Realme's online retail partner Flipkart was selling the Core i5 variant for the same price of Core i3 after various cashback's & card discounts and all!

I actually paid ₹45.25K ($601, €520) to get the Realme Book Slim (Core i5, Real Grey) variant without any exchange. My jaw droped looking at the specs, performance and overall user experience I had for 600 bucks:

1) Premium all metal build just like Apple MacBook. One of the best premium built I have ever seen.
2) Awesome 14 inch glossy display, 2K Display supporting 100% sRGB color gamut. 400 nits peak brightness for a laptop is outstanding.
3) Intel Core i5-1135G7 (11th Gen)
4) Intel Iris XE Graphics
5) 8GB LPDDR4x @ 4266MHz Dual channel RAM. This is very high speed RAM @ 4266MHz, equivalent to 12 GB variants of its competitors.
6) 512GB Samsung Gen3 SSD with one of the highest read and write speeds. User up-gradable with the PCIe Gen3/Gen4 slot.
7) Thunderbolt 4 port + USB-C 3.2 Gen 2
8) 3.5mm Headphone + Microphone Jack (A rarity)
9) WI-FI 6 & Bluetooth 5.2
10) 6952 mAh (54Wh) 4-cell Lithium Polymer battery
11) 65 watt fast charger which is as small as a phone charger
12) 3-level Backlit Keyboard, identical to MacBook
13) Huge trackpad
14) Two HARMAN Speakers with DTS, decently loud
15) Clean Windows 11 Home with ZERO bloatware.
16) Microsoft Office 2019 Home & Student pre-installed, free for lifetime.

What is even more impressive is the Realme Book (Core i5) variant have now received Intel Evo certification. Which mean sleep to wake time is under a second with the Fingerprint Power Button. The latest enhanced edition mentioned here is currently unavailable in my country.
