The next laptop from Linux PC company System76 is a thin and light notebook with 10th-gen Intel Core “Comet Lake” processor options, a 14.1 inch, 1080p matte IPS display, and support for up to 40GB of RAM.
But the thing I find most interesting is that the System76 Lemur Pro weighs just 2.2 pounds, making it the company’s lightest laptop, despite packing a 73 Wh battery that the company says should be good for up to 10 hours of video playback time (or longer for web surfing or coding).
The Lemur Pro should be available in early April for $1099 and up.
Update 4/9/2020: The Lemur Pro is available for purchase from System76.com.
