If System76 aren't your preferred Linux hardware vendor we also have TUXEDO who just recently announced the TUXEDO InfinityBook S 15 powered by the latest Intel hardware.
This new system actually sounds very familiar, and if you're feeling a bit of déjà vu you would be absolutely right - you've pretty much seen this before with the System76 Darter Pro. In fact, they're mostly the same. The main advantage is probably shipping, since System76 are based in the USA with TUXEDO in Germany and also support times / returns depending on where you are.
With a base configuration of the TUXEDO InfinityBook S 15 coming with a Full HD IPS display, Intel Core i5-1135G7 with Intel Iris Xe Graphics, 8 GB 3200 MHz DDR4 RAM, and a 250 GB Samsung 860 EVO. Their starting price is €937 EUR, compared with the $1,099 USD from System76.
With TUXEDO, you also get access to their fancy custom-built TUXEDO Control Center which allows you to get a full slick dashboard of your computer specifications. From here you can adjust performance profiles, fan tables and more depending on the model you buy from them. You also get their sweet looking backlit TUX super-key to replace the Windows logo you usually see from other vendors.
Here's some of the options you can get with it:
|Screen||Full-HD (1920 x 1080) IPS non-glare | 100% sRGB|
|RAM||8 GB (1x 8GB) 3200Mhz CL22 Samsung
