System76 to launch its first Linux laptop with a 4K display next week

Adder WS by System76 System76, a company that makes powerful computers, some of them with Linux operating systems, will launch a new computer next week. It will arrive under the name of Adder WS and it will do so on August 8. What makes this launch special is that it will be the company's first Linux computer to have a 4K screen, more specifically an OLED that will offer bright colors with very realistic black colors.

The 4K screen is something that System76 will use as a claim to sell its next computer but, as we will detail later, this specification may not be the most important of those that the Adder WS will bring. In fact, it will feature up to 64GB of RAM (joke: enough to run Chrome) and 8TB of storage. Here are some of the specifications of the Adder WS which System76 will release next week.
