System76 announce the AMD powered Pangolin with Ryzen and Radeon

By - | Views: 22,937

You asked, quite a lot actually and now System76 are going to be delivering with the all-AMD powered Pangolin. Considering the power of the newer generation AMD chipsets, it's not surprising that they've seen plenty of requests for a laptop powered by team red.

While no formal press release has been made about it (that we've seen anyway?), they have announced it briefly on Twitter with a coming soon page. Interestingly, the Pangolin looks to be their most affordable laptop and one they're calling an "everyday laptop" with the price starting at $849.

Once they give out more info, we will let you know.

In other System76 news, it seems their custom keyboard is still in progress. Founder and CEO, Carl Richell, showed off a shot on Twitter of the prototype keyboard milling. Will be very interesting to see what they actually come up with in the end, as we know it's going to be quite customizable from what they teased back in August.

Quoting: minkiuHere's hoping the my laptop doesn't die until Thunderbolt 4/USB4 is in an AMD laptop like this one, I want to be able to plug an eGPU if desired. I think a nice laptop like this one + egpu is the future (for me) :)

Else I'll have to get a desktop.

That and I really like the idea of standardized chargers for all devices.
