It’s been about a month since we announced the Fedora Slimbook laptop. That was just the first step in our partnership with Slimbook to see Fedora Linux preinstalled on more devices. The feedback we’ve received has been great! With that, we wanted to share more news from our hardware partner that we hope is exciting for you.
Introducing the Fedora Slimbook 14″
As awesome as the Fedora Slimbook 16″ is, we heard many of you express concerns over the size of the laptop or the Nvidia card, wishing there was a smaller option available. So Slimbook answered the call with the smaller Fedora Slimbook 14″ for those who prefer it – still with the great Fedora branding on the back of the lid and on the super key, and still with Fedora Workstation preinstalled!
- No Nvidia GPU: In some ways it’s odd to list this as a feature, but for those who want to make sure the default Fedora experience covers all of the hardware, here you go!
- Intel i7-12700H Processor: Experience top-notch performance for all your computing needs.
- 99Wh Battery: Stay productive and connected on the go with an extended all day long battery life.
- Lightweight 1.25Kg: Carry it effortlessly wherever you go.
- Magnesium Chassis: A sleek and durable construction.
- 2880 x 1800 Resolution: Enjoy vibrant visuals and crisp details on a high-resolution display.
- 99% sRGB Color Accuracy: Perfect for design, media, and content creation.
Same as with the Fedora Slimbook 16″, 3% of the revenue from each Fedora Slimbook 14″ sale will be donated to the GNOME Foundation.
Hopefully the Fedora Slimbook 14″ can give you the right mix of power and portability while showing off your Fedora love! Find more details at https://fedora.slimbook.es/.

Slimbook has been great to work with as we develop this partnership to make Linux more accessible on hardware. We hope that these announcements are exciting for you as Fedora continues to focus on our hardware partner initiative!
