International Order? We stock the following language keyboard layouts for this model: US English. The AC adapter is compatible with power grids around the world. We stock US/Canadian, [censored] ("UK" style), [censored] ("Europlug"), and Australian AC adapters/plugs. For other countries please inquire. Shipping to most international destinations takes 3-5 business days. Taxes/duties not included. Please contact support for other AC adapter plugs.

All laptops and desktops are assembled at our US facility. This means taxes for those outside the US are not included in the prices shown. The taxes depend on the final destination of the goods rather than where the order was assembled. Orders going outside the US will therefore have any local taxes collected on delivery.

A kernel update may be required on older releases. An i7 CPU may require an updated graphics stack (such as is included with 18.04.3+/Fedora 31+).

If your computer has ever come to a crawl you probably didn't have enough memory. A lack of memory is the leading cause of systems becoming unbearably slow. So stock up now when memory is dirt cheap and avoid those expensive upgrades.

M.2 SSD drives are a new smaller form factor type of hard drive that are much faster than traditional 'spinning disk' drives. SSD drives will usually cut boot and application start times by about half. The newest of NVME M.2 SSD drives are even faster.

Avoid future expenses with an extended warranty.
