A month after launching the Tuxedo Pulse 15 Linux laptop powered by up to an AMD Renoir processor, Tuxedo Computers is introducing a 14 inch model.

The new Tuxedo Pulse 14 is available with the same powerful processor options, but comes  in a smaller, lighter case. The laptop weighs just 2.3 pounds, measures just 16.8mm (0.66 inches) thick, and supports up to an AMD Ryzen 7 4800H processor.

It’s available for pre-order now for 825 Euros ($975) and up, and the Tuxedo Pulse 14 should begin shipping in October.

The Tuxedo Pulse 14 may be small, but it packs a 45 watt AMD Ryzen 4000H series processor with Radeon Vega graphics. Unfortunately the laptop’s 47 Wh battery is less than half the size of the battery the company put in the Pulse 15, so only expect up to 6 hours of battery life during general purpose usage (or up to 11 hours in power saving mode).

Here’s an overview of the laptop’s spec sheet:

The Tuxedo Pulse 14 has a magnesium chassis, fairly compact bezels around the sides of the display, and an HD webcam above the screen.

While Tuxedo Computers is based in Germany, the company allows you to configure the notebook with keyboards configured for English or other languages. You can even opt for a Dvorak keyboard layout (English or Germany only).

Operating system options include the Tuxedo_OS GNU/Linux distribution, Ubuntu, and OpenSUSE. You can also pay extra for Tuxedo to load Windows 10 Home or Pro either in a virtual machine or in a dual boot configuration.

  1. Last I checked, Tuxedo mostly sells models with ISO keyboard layout, without the option for more common ANSI to which we Americans are accustomed. This varies by model, but it looks to be the case on the newer machines they’ve announced. Kind of a dealbreaker for me, and definitely something to look out for if you’re ordering sight unseen.
