The latest Linux laptop from Tuxedo Computers is a thin and light powerhouse with  up to a 14 inch, 2880 x 1800 pixel LTPS display, a  28-watt Intel Core i7-1165G7 processor, and a body that measures just 0.6 inches thick and weighs just 2.2 pounds.

The Tuxedo Infinity Book Pro 14 is available with a choice of Ubuntu or Tuxedo_OS Linux distributions, or you can choose no operating system at all if you’d prefer to load your own. It’s available for pre-order for 1249 Euros ($1530) and up and the notebook should begin shipping May 31.

For the starting price, you’ll get a laptop with somewhat more modest specs, including a 1920 x 1200 pixel IPS LCD display and an Intel Core i5-1135G7 processor. Memory and storage configurations start at 8GB and 250GB (PCIe NVMe SSD), but the laptop can be configured with up to 64GB of RAM and dual SSDs (up to 4TB total).

Customers an also choose from a variety of keyboard layouts.

Other features include an Intel AX200 WiFi 6 + Bluetooth 5.1 wireless card, a 1MP webcam, stereo speakers, a 53 Wh battery, and a selection of ports including:

  • 1 x Thunderbolt 4
  • 1 x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C
  • 2 x USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A
  • 1 x HDMI 2.0
  • 1 x 3.5mm headset jack

  1. Totally not getting the hate here. There are many things here I have been looking for in a new laptop that the big competitors (Thinkpads, XPS’s, HP’s etc) don’t offer in the same package:

    16:10 screen
    Great port selection

    USB-C, one on each side, nice for charging options, plus DC charging
    Not just one but two USB-A’s, one on each side, HDMI, and a SD card slot
    Headphone jack
    Kensington lock

    High res webcam (can be bios deactivated)
    Removable battery
    Under 3 lbs

    My only concern is the wimpy-ish 53 Wh battery. Otherwise, this looks like a solid package, for about as much as its US competitors…

    1. None of these specs seem exclusive aside from perhaps the Bios-deactivatable features, and the 16:10 screen isn’t as common with competitors as it once was.

      I can’t find any information on Tuxedo’s website that tells me exactly how easily their battery is removed. From the looks of the replacement battery unit, it looks like its the same deal as any other laptop brand, you gotta open up the chassis to get at it.

      But nothing you listed explains why it costs $1500, when I can find a competitor from a common brand (with a warranty that can be serviced in my own country), for significantly less money.

      If I simply want the same SOC, ram, and SSD size, I can find one for $599. If I want Thunderbolt 4, and some more premium features, I can still find options between $800-1000.

      1. I was wrong about the removable battery (confusing it with the Framework laptop). Can you show me which models have the features I listed above for that price?

        1. The LG Gram 14 (14Z90P) is available with the same i5-1135G7, 8GB RAM, and 250gb SSD. It has a 1920×1200 panel, 2x Type-C Thunderbolt 4 connectors (one on each side), 2x Type-A USB 3.2 connectors (also one on each side). And it weighs 2.2 pounds, and has a 72Wh batter.

          The price has been hovering around $999 to $1099. You can get it with an i7/16gb/512gb for $1499, which is still lower than the starting price of the i5-powered Tuxedo Infinity Book Pro 14.

          1. Great example, I always forget about the LG Grams, although they have a reputation for being somewhat flimsy and fragile. It has a lower res webcam, FWIW, but undeniably better battery life. It’s nice to have competition and choices.

  2. One can make a lot money by buying laptops from bestbuy, installing free linux and then selling at three times of original price.

  3. It’s been some years since I’ve tried installing Linux on a brand new laptop (I’m using a Thinkpad T430 for Linux), so I’m a little out of touch with the struggles and hurdles that current retail laptops have with running Linux.

    Is there some common struggle that I’m unaware of that makes the more big-name laptops more difficult to run Linux?

    I’m wondering why someone would spend $1500+ on laptop specs that go for $599 right now at Best Buy.

    I’m aware that some laptops sometimes use components that aren’t the most Linux-friendly. Personally, I’m fine with buying a laptop, and bringing it back for a refund later in the afternoon if a Linux live USB doesn’t work out.

      1. My T430 has been 100% fine with most distros I’ve installed.

        On a few occasions I’ve had to manually install my wifi drivers, and I think there’s been one distro that wasn’t able to show my battery status.

      1. “One thing to keep in mind is that the list price include a 19-percent tax.”

        Good point, but even then the thing is still ridiculously over-priced.
