Pop!_OS Linux from System76 is expanding with more vendors, as HP now have a teaser up for the HP Dev One laptop. Built for developers they say, although with the kind of specs on offer it seems like it might make quite a good gaming machine too.

Some of the specs include:

  • 8-Core AMD Ryzen™ 7 PRO processor
  • 16GB memory DDR4 @ 3200MHz
  • 1TB fast PCIe NVMe M.2 storage²
  • 14" diagonal FHD anti-glare display
  • AMD Radeon™ Graphics

The unit itself looks absolutely gorgeous too, it even has a "Super" key instead of the standard Windows logo you get on most laptops as a great little added touch. Of course, it also comes with Pop!_OS as standard too, a project that has been "Months in the making" said System76 CEO Carl Richell.

They should have used a rocket as the super key, not a text that says "super".
Noobs don't know what the super key is.
You could tell them, instead of being condescending.
Thaaaaaanks for that. I think you missed the point. The point of my comment was to say that not everyone knows to translate the "super key" they see in a Linux operating system to the one with a Windows logo.

Thanks for the sarcasm, but it was you who missed the point. Namely that if you spend a minute explaining what exactly "noobs" get wrong, some "noob" reading your reply might actually learn something, instead of feeling like they're not in the club. It rarely hurts to spell things out in a public discussion. But you just did, so I guess it's all good.

You're not wrong though. It was only recently that I had to explain to a friend that "super" meant the key where they'd usually have the Windows logo. Although their fancy new mechanical KB had some other symbol on the keycap instead, but that's beside the point.

But then he couldn't use the word 'Noobs'!

What's worse, is there is the 'Meta' key label that some of us call it. When people know it as the 'Windows' key, because typically it just has the Windows Logo on it. Thanks Microsoft and keyboard manufacturers for that...

The thing is, while KDE refers to the Windows (or Logo) key with "Meta", in Xfce and I think Gnome it means left Alt.

The fragmentation of meta/super/windows keys will be the downfall of linux on the desktop!!

Mark my words... mark them!

I always thought that the "Super Key" was supposed to have a Tux logo :thinking emoji:

Quoting: pageroundI wonder if the case is made of metal or plastic. Looks nice and very cool to see more companies preinstalling a linux distro.

It'looks pretty much 1:1 to my Zbook Firefly14 G7 (minor differences with speaker grills, hp logo, finger print reader, webcam array) and that has an aluminium body. So I'd guess this one will also be build out of aluminium.

It's the chassis looks like an EliteBook 840/845 with the screen of a Probook 445/440.

It has me interested. Hows the Zbook been, how would you rate its repairability?
