After recently releasing their own in-house designed Thelio desktop system, System76 have announced they're giving away some funding to open source projects from laptop sales.

The projects include KiCad, Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), Free Software Foundation (FSF), and the Open Source Hardware Association (OSHWA). "We picked these four projects to represent a wide array of efforts within open source initiatives." Says Louisa Bisio at System76.

From the press details, they told us that every single laptop purchase will enable a $10 donation and you can save $30-$100 anyway during the sale or up to $160-$370 with upgraded components.

See more on the official System76 website. Really nice to see a company give back to help others.

They also made this silly video to go along with it:

pbJust find your local or EU-wide brand of Clevo laptops (e.g. Schenker in DE)

[edit2] located in Germany seems to sell Clevos with Linux on board.
Tuxedo is a Schenker brand : )
xaviSystem76, Entroware, Tuxedo... all of them lack of AMD cpu and graphic options on laptops.
Yes, one of my main issues with Tuxedo. I like my laptop, but the Intel graphics is, uh, not competitive and I always had issues with Nvidia's blob (maybe [likely?] better nowadays but I'm not willing to try it again).
