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.

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

So far I'm really happy with it. Worked with Linux OOTB from day 1 and apparently they also started to distribute firmware updates via fwupd (at least gnome-software told me that an update for the firmware is available, but I always update directly from the UEFI via internet).

They also have quite an in depth maintenance and service guide online and from the looks of it, you can pretty much replace every part (even the display is split up in multiple parts and not only one like it was with my Dell XPS). Only bad thing about my model is, that the RAM is not upgradable because of the Nvidia GPU.

All in all it's kinda a better experience than the XPS 13-9360 that I had before (Dell basically switched out the whole computer, twice).

Though I can't say if this is also true for other models/product lines besides Zbooks.

Its testimonial that lines up with my experience. Ive used a zbook g3 for work, but i wasnt allowed to open up. It performed well (xeon, nvidia, windows).

I currently have an all-amd dell G5 SE for home use thats still under warranty and spends a lot of time in the shop. It likes to self-combust (overheat), I'll probably sell it when i get the chance.

I have found Logitech and Lenovo do as well. It is weird to see firmware update support for Linux, being that I still remember the days when you had to have a DOS disk laying around to update things...

Edit: actually it was 3 days ago when I updated a motherboard's bios as the original didn't support hard drives larger than 32gb...

Weirdly, it's still pretty hard to find a good 13in laptop with 32GB of ram.
I'm loving my XPS13, but 16GB is too short when running VMs, IDEs, and heaps of apps.

Still, it's not possible to get the 32GB ram version with Linux, only with Windows...

Is that where you get a fatty tower to run you vms on remotely? 😀
