Another new laptop is on the way with the TUXEDO Stellaris Slim 15, the second revealed in the 6th generation of new Stellaris laptops from TUXEDO. This follows on from the Stellaris 17 gen6 notebook they revealed earlier this month.

So if the Stellaris 17 was too big for you, maybe this smaller one will be what you're after. This one also comes in two different editions with either AMD or Intel depending on who you prefer. And of course, full proper Linux support as standard with you able to pick between a few different Linux distributions.

From their email:

The AMD base configuration with the Ryzen 7 8845HS, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060, 2x 8 GB 5600MHz DDR5 RAM, a 500 GB Samsung 980 SSD as well as TUXEDO OS pre-installed starts at 1.699 EUR (incl. Tax for german customers only) and around 1.430 EUR for customers outside europe (excl. Tax)

The Intel base configuration with the Intel Core i7-14650HX, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060, 2x 8 GB 5600MHz DDR5 RAM, a 500 GB Samsung 980 SSD as well as TUXEDO OS pre-installed starts at 1.749 EUR (incl. Tax for german customers only) and around 1.470 EUR for customers outside europe (excl. Tax)

You can upgrade the Intel model to an Intel Core i9-14900HX, and both models can also be upgraded to an NVIDIA 4070. Both come with a 15.3" screen at 2560 x 1600, 16:10 and 240Hz. The screen has 100% sRGB colour space coverage and a brightness of around 500 nits.

They also put together a new promotional video for this unit:

I have only just a few days ago installed their OS and I must say it works very well, quick, smooth and so far everything seems to work well. I also like the custom tweaks such as no snap support. I had an issue upgrading to
Kubuntu 24.04 LTS (black screen after reboot) which I did managed to sort by poking around in the Grub but still was not happy that I needed to do that to make things work.

I tried a few other Distos that were KDE but nothing seem to work as well as Kubuntu until I came across Tuxedo. I really like the distro so far plus nice to be running latest plasma, plus like the fact that when installed, it found my windows os (sorry still keep it for two apps and one game) and set is all up in the grub menu which some of the others distros did not.
I feel like I should play Stellaris on this.

Won't they get into trouble with that name? Stellaris is trademarked.
Not that Paradox seems very likely to sue a PC manufacturer, but still.

Then again I am not a lawyer, so no clue if trademarks might only apply to similar things (and I'd argue a laptop and a game are not so similar).

From what I have heard, that is exactly how the law works: you can only trademark a name for a specific context (say, gaming for the game Stellaris)

Looks awesome. Though I wonder about noise (currently on MBP with M1 and I to love complete silence of the device).

They could invest in better video stabilisation though :)

It's why Apple can get away with the trademark Apple and Google can get away with Google and Alphhabet.
