Schenker Slim 15 Red in the test: Immaculate casing

Every square centimeter of the Schenker Slim 15 testifies to quality: The red aluminum housing of our test device not only looks appealing, but also feels good, is stable and has no corners or edges. The notebook is nice and light at 1.6 kilograms. The keyboard has a pleasant stroke when typing with a long enough travel and also offers its own keys, including “Remove” and the numpad. There are RGB lights under the buttons, which can be easily switched using preinstalled software and varied in brightness. This is not a real light spectacle, but it is nevertheless a nice feature. The touchpad also does its job flawlessly, the fingers neither stick to it nor slide off.

Display with a weakness

The 15 .6 inch, matte display leaves nothing to be desired. With measured 299 cd / m² it is very bright, with very little clouding, i.e. the brightness is well distributed over the display. The colors shown almost cover the sRGB area (90 percent), in addition, the contrasts are well preserved, even if you look at the screen from quite steep angles (42 degrees horizontal side angle, 30 degrees vertical side angle). The contrasts are also the only downside of the otherwise excellent display: With a ratio of 172: 1 when displaying black and white patterns, it is only in the middle of the range among more expensive devices.

Keyboard and mouse replacement make a lot of impression. Picture: CHIP

Great variety of connections, but equipment “only” good

There is almost no current peripheral device with which you can use the Slim 15 could not connect somehow. Thanks to a fully-fledged LAN interface, WLAN-ax, Thunderbolt 3, mini-display port, fully-fledged HDMI, a card reader and various USB ports, no monitor, mass storage device or Internet connection is safe from the notebook. For some, however, the optical drive may be missing. However, discs are becoming increasingly rare in everyday life and can also be read in using a USB peripheral device.

The notebook loses more features in terms of memory: 8 GB of RAM are perfectly adequate for most tasks , but there are also models in this price range with 12 or 16 GByte. The 500 GB of SSD storage is also fine, but there is no space for large photo or video collections. After all: The SSD is an arrow-fast Samsung 970 Evo Plus.

Made-to-measure performance

In the main board of the Schenker Slim 15 is a current Intel Core i5 – 10210 U with four cores and up to 4.2 GHz clock frequency. This is standard from Schenker at 50 mV undervolted, which means that the processor can keep high clock rates longer. With the associated graphics unit Intel UHD Graphics 620 the notebook delivers top performance in its price range. The graphics performance of models with a dedicated graphics card does not come close for a long time, but our tests speak a clear language for office use: good to very good. The notebook always remains very quiet. All benchmark results can be found in Our best list .

But for whom a quiet whirring is still too loud for the notebook offers a total of four performance modes. In “silent mode”, our testers had to hold their ears directly to the fan outlet in order to hear a barely audible noise. But of course that regulates the performance down properly.

Note: The original test of the donor 15 – L 19 xds comes from 28. 11. 2019, it closed the test in the best list of notebooks via 500 Euro with the test rating “good”. In February 2020 we have this leaderboard with the leaderboard of Notebooks up to 500 Euro merged . This was accompanied by a change in the rating of many devices.
