International Order? This model is currently available with a United States keyboard layout. It is also available with AC adapters for other regions. We stock US/Canadian, Japanese, UK, European, and Australian AC adapters/plugs. For other countries please inquire. Shipping to most international destinations takes 3-5 business days. Taxes/duties not included. If the configuration you want is not an option below please contact support with your regional requirements.

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. To get an idea about the local tax rate in your country check out this wikipedia article.

This model requires a recently released distribution for support. Currently Debian (testing), Linux Mint 18, Ubuntu 16.04/17.10+, Slackware 14.2, Fedora 27, openSUSE Tumbleweed (and Leap 42.3+), Arch, and Parabola GNU/Linux-libre are supported. Feel free to inquire about other distributions. We will update this list as time allows. Other popular distributions such as Trisquel are not yet supported, but will be as distributions release newer versions built off newer software stacks.

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.

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.

An optical drive lets you access the legacy DVD and CD media formats. With it you can watch movies, rip music, or access old backups. Optical drives can also be useful for recording small amounts of data for physical distribution to others.

Avoid future expenses with an extended warranty.

Backdoors in modern computing devices are unfortunately a certainty today and while we can't be sure of a fix here it is possible to partially disable one component believed to be a problem. This option does have side-effects and will void any return.

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.
