All laptops and desktops are assembled at our US facility. This means taxes 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.

Notes:

This model will more likely work with some slightly older releases than some of our other models currenty as well as any recent distribution out of the box.

This model is supported by at least Debian (testing), Linux Mint 19+, Ubuntu 18.04+, elementary OS 5.0+, Fedora 28+, Red Hat Enterprise 7 & 8, CentOS 7 & 8 (Note: core/basic functionality in 7 with 1810 release RHEL 7), openSUSE Tumbleweed (and Leap 42.3+), Arch, and Parabola GNU/Linux-libre. Most other distributions will also work, but feel free to inquire about other distributions and releases. We will update this list as time allows.

This model supports faster socketed CPUs designed for a desktop. With a faster standard desktop CPU there are some drawbacks like reduced battery life (compared to our other models). There are however a few T series CPU options that draw less power.

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.

Don't just get a bigger drive. Get a faster drive. Experience twice the speed with a new solid state drive. Newer SSD technology can give you that boost you always wanted cutting start times in half and increasing the speed of programs.

M.2 SSD drives are a new smaller form factor type of hard drive that are much faster than traditional 'spinning disk' drives and are found in newer higher end computers. SSD drives will usually cut boot and application start times by about half.

Avoid future expenses with an extended warranty.

Get a a pair of best-in-class speakers and hear the world like you've never heard it before! There are many options for speakers, but not all are created equal. We've gone and selected some of the best speakers on the market to offer. * Ships to USA only.

Need to transfer data from an old computer? Don't let an old USB flash drive slow you down. Get a fast USB 3.0 flash drive or an even faster USB SuperSpeed SSD Drive.

Get extra ports! If you have lots of accessories take advantage of a USB hub to keep everything organized and connected.

Our AC adapters are compatible with power grids around the world. However each AC adapter needs a cable to connect to your local outlet. Pick the one that is suitable for you. If you have any questions contact support.
