We have been fortunate to receive, on temporary loan, one of these Book Prime to know first-hand the quality of the product and the potential of its configuration. From here we appreciate the opportunity that the manufacturer gives us, and we invite you to get to know the Realme ultrabook in depth with our review .
Presentation, design and construction of the Realme Book Prime
Realme ‘s Book Prime laptop is the newest addition from a company we all know mostly for its great smartphones . This brand, which has only been on the market for four years, has been growing by leaps and bounds in the variety and quality of its products, until it has become one of the favorites of users.
The Realme Book Prime is presented in an elegant packaging, reminiscent of other very top brands in style . The computer is delivered in a box with a minimalist design, white in color, where a large photo of the product stands out, under the text that indicates the brand and reference. This image advances the color of the equipment that is inside.
On the back of the box, a sticker informs, very briefly, of the technical specifications of the device. The laptop comes nestled inside on a cardboard cradle, which separates it a few millimeters from the edge of the package. It is protected with a translucent plastic wrapper. As an accessory, the essential charger is included .
Design and construction of the laptop
The Realme brand sells the Book Prime in three different color finishes: Grey , Blue and Green . The latter is the version we have received. The computer has a premium category presence . Well, beyond the beautiful tonality of the casing, the elegance of its design is enhanced by having an aluminum chassis .
The Realme Book Prime boasts lightness, weighing only 1.37 kg , and slimness ( 14.9 mm thick at the narrowest point). In addition, it stands out for its silent and efficient operation , the key to which is the liquid cooling system with a vapor chamber , made up of two ultra- thin fans .

The goal of this team is to be as productive as possible. For this, nothing better than an optimized and backlit keyboard , to work anywhere. With 1.3mm key travel and X-shaped stand, it offers a stable , smooth and comfortable using experience, allowing you to use your device for hours without fatigue. This fundamental element is complemented by a large touch panel . The wide area gives us fluid navigation that facilitates interaction with the computer.
Realme Book Prime screen
Another of the great attractions of the Realme Book Prime is the display that they have installed. With a 14 – inch diagonal , narrow bezels and 3:2 aspect ratio , it reaches a 2K resolution of 2,160 x 1,440 pixels . Not only does it offer well-defined images, full of detail and with realistic colors due to its 100% sRGB coverage , it is also capable of reaching a high level of brightness (maximum 400 nits ).
Technical details of the Book Prime CloudPro002
For its brand new Book Prime , the Realme brand is betting on the performance and reliability of Intel’s 11th Gen processors . We have tested the CloudPro002 reference , with the Intel® Core™ i5-11320H . This CPU has 4 cores , which work at maximum frequencies of 4.5 GHz . In addition, the equipment uses the GPU integrated in it. In other words, at the graphic level, it depends exclusively on the Intel® Iris Xe Graphics of the Core™ i5-11320H .
The system configuration includes 8 GB of DDR4 4266 MHz memory (the manufacturer offers models with double the RAM ). It is somewhat tight, just like the storage capacity, where we only have 512 GB of space. In addition, the GB occupied by the pre-installed Windows 11 operating system from the factory must be deducted . On the plus side, it’s a PCIe® solid state drive , so load and write times are extraordinarily good. Finally, note that the ultrabook has a 54 Wh battery , capable of offering up to 12 hours of autonomy, and that thanks to its Fast charging technology can replenish 50% of its capacity in 30 minutes .
Realme Book Prime performance test
We have rated the performance of this ultrabook with PCMARK 10 . The results speak of a very decisive device for everyday tasks ( 9,036 points in essential); more than correct in productivity ( 5,905 ); and effective in the treatment of content ( 5,268 / 9,217 in photo editing).
