If you’ve been itching to see more of the KDE Slimbook, the ultra-thin laptop announced by Spanish company Slimbook back in January, then you’re in luck.

KDE developer (and all-round awesome chap) Jonathan Riddell snagged some one-on-one time with the bespoke KDE-branded laptop at the FLOSS Spring 2017 conference taking place in Manchester.

“Fresh off the production line from 101’s factory in València is the first KDE Slimbook which I opened today at FLOSS UK conference here in Manchester,” he writes in a short blog post.

And he really means fresh off the production line too, as the KDE Slimbook in his hands has the serial no #00001.

Thankfully for those of not attending to the conference he’s uploaded a video of the KDE Slimbook unboxing for our peeper’s pleasure.

You can see the video in the YouTube embed below, where Riddell shows what comes in the box, what happens during first-boot, and gives a quick recap of the ports and pricing.

The 13.1-inch KDE Slimbook is available to buy and configure in Intel Core i5 and i7 configurations. Prices start from €729, and the first units will begin shipping to customers very shortly.
