If you’re in the market looking for a Linux laptop, you might want to have a look at System76’s Lemur Pro, the model which was announced a month ago but which is available for purchase right now.
That’s right, System76 has just started selling what it claims to be is the company’s longest-lasting laptop yet with a battery that goes up to 14 hours per charge. In addition, it’s also System76’s lightest laptop featuring its most flexible hinge, it says.
“This laptop is designed to be lightweight across the board: Bloatware-free open source firmware, a snappy operating system, and performant components—all inside a 2.2-pound chassis. We’d say you could throw it like a frisbee, but we wouldn’t want you to scratch its sleek body,” the company explains.
The Lemur Pro isn’t supposed to be just another laptop, but once that easily stands out from the crowd, both from a design and a hardware perspective.
So it goes without saying it doesn’t come cheap, with pricing starting at $1,099 for the base model that comes with an Intel 10th Gen Core i5 chip paired with 8GB RAM and 240GB storage.
The hardware configuration page offered by System76 allows you to choose from three operating systems versions, namely Pop!_OS 19.10, Pop!_OS 18.04 LTS, and Ubuntu 18.04.
The new Lemur Pro laptop come with a choice of two processors, both of them part of the 10th Gen Intel Core lineup. So customers can choose between the i5-10210U and the i7-10510U, with the latter obviously being the more powerful (and more expensive) version.
The top-of-the-range configuration of the Lemur Pro, which features an Intel Core i7-10510U chip with 4 cores and 8 threads, 40GB DDR4 RAM running at 2666 MHz, 2TB NVMe storage, an extra 2TB NVMe unit, 27-inch dual display with 1440p support, Wi-Fi, and 3 years of warranty is available for $3,464.
