With a rather unassuming and plain case that doesn't give much away, the new TUXEDO Book XP14 is their smallest and lightest gaming notebook now available.
Coming with Intel Tiger Lake processors with either the Core i5-1135G7 or the Core i7-1165G7 it's backed up by their new Xe graphics, you can also upgrade it to have an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 if you want that extra bit of power for your gaming needs.
Not only does it have ample power, it also has a speedy 14" 120Hz screen along with a matte finish to help keep away as much glare as possible to be usable in various lighting conditions.
The included 49 Wh will give around 6 hours of usage according to what TUXEDO state, although that will obviously go down based on what you're doing with it. There's plenty more to appreciate with it, check out some specs:

As usual for this company it comes as standard with TUXEDO_OS, which is based on the latest Ubuntu release with the Budgie desktop as the default. They do also offer it with a standard Ubuntu install.
Quite an affordable notebook too starting at €865.50. For the specifications, the compact size and having full Linux support out of the box from a known company it seems like an ideal machine. TUXEDO stated in their email that shipping is expected to begin at the end of December 2020.
