Need new hardware? TUXEDO Computers believe they have revealed the "the lightest Linux powerhouse in the world" with the new AMD Ryzen powered TUXEDO Pulse 14.
That's a pretty big claim, although it is pretty light at 1.1kg which is a world of difference to the recently announced Bonobo WS desktop-class laptop from System76 which comes in at 3.80kg. In their press release, TUXEDO mentioned to us that although it's light, the "TUXEDO Pulse 14 reaches a performance level that is unrivalled in its weight class" due to the AMD Ryzen processors that pack a punch.

For battery life, they're saying it should give you practical use for up to 6 hours tested streaming a 1080p video thanks to the 47 Wh lithium-polymer battery. Going by their order page, it appears that you can order it now but some components aren't in stock until October. Pricing starts at 824.45 EUR.
Overall, it sounds like a nice tidy unit. Good for work and light gaming thanks to the power.
