elementary OS begins to be available on computers that have it installed by default

Laptops with elementary OS

There are already many notebooks with Linux operating systems on the market. Many of them have Ubuntu installed by default, but there are also others with Manjaro, Pop! _OS, Fedora and recently Lenovo announced which will sell laptops with Red Hat (and Ubuntu). The latest project to join this is the one led by Daniel Foré, that of elementary OS, a well-designed and feature-rich operating system based (in part) on macOS.

It has been Cassidy James Blaede who has been in charge of giving the news. In it, he states that «elementary OS 5.1 is now available right out of the box in more than a dozen models from two vendors, with more on the way.«. But to be true to the truth, it is true that the operating system is installed on the computers you mention, but these are not yet available for purchase. Yes can be booked at stores like Star Labs, which you can access from this link.

elementary OS on "out of the box" laptops, a reality

One of the computers on which we can find elementary OS installed by default is the LabTop Mk IV from StarLabs, with a starting price of € 794. But as soon as we start (the simulation of) the order, we see a problem: it is only available with UK and US English keyboards. The most complete model of the LabTop Mk IV includes an Intel I7 processor, 16GB of RAM, 1920GB in SSD disk and USB-C charging adapter, which leaves it with a price of € 1332.

This initiative and the negotiations with the OEMs started because the community asked how to buy laptops that had elementary OS installed by defaultMore specifically to make sure that the operating system they like best would work perfectly on the chosen laptop. It is clear that this is good news for all those who love elementary OS. Are you one of them?

  1.   but what? said

    Not crazy I buy a laptop with elementary os, or with Ubuntu, if Ubuntu will carry pure gnome, as a fedora for example, then yes, but Ubuntu carries its own gnome that is too far from a pure gnome. If I would buy a laptop with a fedora, manjaro, with Linux mint, but with elementary os? Hahaha, let's go crazy ...
