Normally if we want to have a laptop with Gnu / Linux, the best option is to buy a laptop with Windows and replace the Microsoft system with a Gnu / Linux distribution. This is the most plausible option as Apple computers are very expensive and Windows 10 laptops are dangerous and unsafe.

However, there are several companies that launch computers with Gnu / Linux. They are laptops or desktops that are built around a Gnu / Linux-compatible hardware or distribution. Not long ago we knew the example of slim book but there are others like the Alpha Litebook laptop.

The Litebook company has developed a laptop that aims to be a clone of Apple's macbook but with Free Software. In this case Alpha Litebook is a laptop that has Elementary OS as an operating system accompanied by applications that we can use in our day to day such as Google Chrome, Spotify or WPS Office.

The laptop has a 14,1-inch screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The laptop's processor is Intel's quad core 1,6 Ghz with 4 Gb of ram memory. The internal storage can be 512 Gb thanks to an HDD or 32 Gb thanks to an SDD.

In terms of connectivity, the equipment has two USB 3.0 ports, an RJ-45 port, an HDMI port, a SD card slot and a microphone output. The battery of this laptop provides an autonomy of more than 9 hours that could change depending on the use we give it. The weight of this device is also like the latest generation equipment, not exceeding one kilogram of weight.

But the most interesting point of this Alpha Litebook is its price, as interesting as the software it carries. The Litebook laptop does not exceed 240 euros, a very affordable price for this equipment.

Alpha Litebook does not offer anything new that does not have other equipment, but the truth is that its price makes the laptop an interesting option and even perfect for those who want a laptop with Gnu / Linux and pay little money for it Do not you think?

      Obviously the same litebook page sends it to you with an extra shipping cost, and according to the SAT if it is a single laptop you do not have to pay taxes
