Linux Laptop Powered by Alder Lake Ships with 14 hours of battery life

Tech Highlights:

  • The new Lemur Pro has many attractive modern features you might see advertised in many rival mainstream thin and light designs. However, the special sauce here is the “System76 Open Firmware with Coreboot.” Coreboot, known initially as LinuxBIOS, is significant as it is an open-source BIOS implementation embraced by Linux users. It is lightweight, flexible, and feature-rich. Sadly, not many modern laptops or desktop PCs support Coreboot, but it seems to have gained momentum in recent times. We reported on Coreboot being made available for MSI Z690-A WiFi motherboards in April. More recently, in a demonstration of Coreboot’s flexibility for tinkerers, we reported on a port of Doom being released as a Coreboot payload.

  • Alder Lake is added to the Linux portable “Lighter than Air.” System76, a Colorado-based company that specialises in Linux laptops, desktops, and servers, has revealed(opens in new tab) a brand-new, extremely portable notebook that features an Intel Alder Lake processor. The brand-new Lemur Pro(opens in new tab) is a 14-inch laptop that is “lighter than Air” and has features like open firmware (powered by Coreboot) and a 180-degree hinge. Additionally, customers have the option of pre-installing Pop! OS 22.04 LTS or Ubuntu 22.04 LTS.

System76 allows customers to configure and buy Lemur Pro laptops right now. There are many RAM and storage configurations to pick through, and you can add external keyboards and monitors to the bundle. The entry price with an Intel Core i5-1235U, 8GB RAM, 240GB of storage, and no extras is $1,149. However, the Core i7-1255U model is a bit of a stretch, adding $200 to the base price for the faster CPU clocks. Mark Tyson is a Freelance News Writer at Tom’s Hardware US.
