Many of you have been mentioning you want better screens with your Linux laptops, so TUXEDO listened closely with the brand new and flashy InfinityBook Pro 14.

"Omnia is the equivalent of totality, of the whole. In order to enjoy complete sharpness of detail accordingly, the InfinityBook Pro 14 Gen6 has a 16:10 format instead of the usual screen format and is available under the name "Omnia" as a 3K premium variant with 2880 x 1800 pixels, measured 99% sRGB coverage as well as 400 cd/m2 brightness for optimal viewing possibilities while working and surfing." — Tuxedo Computers.

The base configuration starts at €1,249 EUR and includes the Intel Core i5-1135G7 and an anti-reflective, IPS 1920x1200 16:10 display, 1x8 GB of RAM, and a 250 GB Samsung 970 EVO Plus. If you want better, you can up the screen to an anti-reflective, LTPS 2880 x 1800 for many more pixels. You can also up the processor to the i7-1165G7 for an extra €100 EUR on the base model or an extra €150 EUR for the 2880 x 1800 screen.

You can configure it up to 64GB RAM, along with 2 fast NVMe SSDs with up to 4 terabytes of storage. As for ports, there's plenty there too including a full-featured USB-C 4.0 port including Thunderbolt 4 with Display Port 1.4, HDMI 2.0 as well as USB-C 3.2 Gen2 and two USB-A 3.2, an SD card reader and much more.

Again, I must groan at the 8GB RAM. I do firmly think it's time for laptop vendors to start having 16GB at a minimum. Far too many apps and games just eat up RAM, 8GB just isn't enough.

Not only does it have a good screen, and some powerful internals to back it up, it's also quite customizable. TUXEDO allow you to have your own logo, graphic design or even a photo lasered onto the display lid or applied onto it using a "durable multicolor printing process".

As usual, TUXEDO allow you to pick between Ubuntu 20.04 and their own TUXEDO_OS which is based upon Ubuntu 20.04.

You can order now with the first set of deliveries to begin from May 31, 2021. Their production time is around 3 weeks. See more on the official store page.

Yes, the TUX super-key .
However, you can't choose AMD Ryzen as processor and have a network card, the only drawbacks for me.

Cool! Do you have recommendation for "Linux" notebook with nvidia GPU? Or brand or vendor for this topic?
Thx

Must say that TUXEDO have been quite nice, got their InfinityBook Pro 15 (v4) myself, haven't got any complaints about the machine itself - even though I've been a bit clumsy with it and managed to break some plastic off due to dropping it.

Now if they could only do a refresh of that one (or the InfinityBook S 15) with a nice new screen like this.
Gotta have that numpad after all.

Very nice resolution and aspect ratio for a laptop. Would not mind such a resolution for desktop screen :)

Now we're talking! Only thing missing now is to pair that sweet ratio with some Red innards, and the fancies can be considered tickled 🥳 (Edit: Just to be clear, by "Red innards", I mean of course AMD CPU/GPU in case anyone was in doubt😄 )

- Norwegian keybord: Æ, Ø, Å!
- 32 GB RAM (or even 64 GB!)
- 16:10 <3
- 16:10 3K!
- A touchpad that actually seems to know that it's not 2008 anymore (I'm looking at you, 2900$ Thinkpad, with your Aliexpress touchpad)

And I love that Tux on the meta key :D

Have anyone tried these (or other laptops from Tuxedo) and can comment on how the keyboard and touchpad are to use?
For reference, I use 2013 MBP 13" and Tuxified 2015 MBP 15" daily, and a 14" HP Elitebook anno 2019 for work.

I was going to ask the same thing regarding the touchpad. The other item of slight concern for me is the non-replaceable/swappable 53 Wh battery, which I think is the bare minimum I would accept and I'd be a bit concerned about achieving all-day work battery life with that.

For me, it might be this vs the Framework laptop (3:2 screen, replaceable 55 Wh battery). Nice to have choices.

Finally, this one is perfect.
Thanks Tuxedo, I know where next month's salary is going now.

It's true the framework is enticing, but it seems US only for now.

Did they state this somewhere?

Quoting: TuxedoAll devices have a maintenance-friendly design. Depending on the model, the essential hardware components such as processor, drive, hard disks, RAM, WIFI modules etc. can be accessed via maintenance flaps or removable floor trays. Furthermore the battery is replaceable if not stated differently. Of course even after expiration of your warranty period we're offering replacement parts and service for many years!

I think the display of the TUXEDO provides a better resolution (2256x1504 is just weird & probably won't scale well), though it'll probably shorten the battery life. But I'll wait on an AMD system.

Finally, a sensible resolution on a laptop. 1440x900 on a 14" screen is just about perfect. So perfect, in fact, that I've just bought one.
