“Tired of having to deal with your Linux password for every task? Logging in, installing programs, updating your system, issuing a command with sudo within a terminal, etc. Well, you won’t need that anymore. With a secondary biometric camera, your Slimbook will be able to recognize that it’s you who is actually in front of the computer and will authenticate your commands automatically.”
The Linux lightweight laptop is powered by an 11th generation Intel Core i7-1165G7 (a quad-core chip with 8 cores, a base frequency of 2.8 GHz and a max frequency of 4.70 GHz).
