System76 and HP bring the HP Dev One with Pop!_OS Linux

By - | Views: 17,538

As we reported previously, The HP Dev One is a new laptop collaboration from System76 and HP that brings Pop!_OS Linux to even more people. It's now available to order.

Quite an exciting one, as it's always good to see more vendors dip their toes into selling and supporting Linux machines directly. Not only that, it's interesting because it's one hardware vendor teaming up with another. Hopefully this is the shape of things to come with more collaboration. Right now it's only available in the USA and priced at $1,099.

Some key specifications:

  • Processor - AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 5850U
  • Memory - 16 GB (2x8 GB) DDR4 3200 MT/s (2 SODIMM)
  • Storage - 1 TB PCIe 3x4 NVMe M.2 2280 SSD
  • Graphics - AMD Radeon Graphics
  • Display - 14” diagonal FHD LED UWWA for HD Webcam (1920x1080) (1000 Nits)
  • Audio - Dual stereo speakers, 2 multi-array microphone
  • Wireless - Realtek RTL8822CE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac (2x2) Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5 combo
  • Power - HP Smart 65 W External AC power adapter
  • Ports - 2 SuperSpeed USB Type-C 10Gbps signaling rate (USB Power Delivery, DisplayPortTM 1.4); 2 SuperSpeed USB Type- A 5Gbps signaling rate (1 charging); 1 headphone/ microphone combo; 1 HDMI 2.0; 1 AC power
  • Battery - HP Long Life 3-cell, 53 Wh Li-ion
  • Size - 12.73 x 8.44 x 0.75 in; 32.34 x 21.46 x 1.91 cm

From the press release:

“System76 is thrilled to work with HP to advance open source and bring the Linux desktop to a much wider audience,” said Carl Richell, CEO, System76. “By bringing together our engineering, marketing, and customer support, System76 with HP are introducing HP Dev One to combine powerful hardware with optimized Pop!_OS for the app dev community.”

“Pop!_OS development and innovation has always been a top priority for System76,” said Jeremy Soller, principal engineer, System76. “We are working to develop new features and optimize current ones into Pop!_OS at a much faster pace than previously possible.”

“Software developers are looking for a device that is customized and optimized for the way they code,” said Tylitha Stewart, Vice President and Global Head of Consumer Services and Subscriptions, HP Inc. “By working with System76, we are meeting this need and providing a premium experience with Linux Pop!_OS preinstalled to deliver the new HP Dev One. The device has features important to developers including an optional Linux keyboard tuned with a super key and designed to be more efficient at the core.”

I'm hoping to see a review unit, so keep an eye out for what I think in the coming weeks. I might also be having a chat with System76 CEO Carl Richell about it soon too.

Check it out and order from the HP Dev One website.

Shame it's U.S. only. I didn't check to see if they ship over here (to the UK), but that's a sweet laptop and I really wanted to see a GBP price on that thing to compare to what I paid for my last big purchase back in 2016, the Dell XPS Developer Edition.
Oh this is it! Let's all who are able support and buy this! It's all AMD finally!

Welp.
No privacy kill switches; no Coreboot support; looks like closed source firmware required on the GPU and wifi. If I was getting a new laptop i'd spend the extra money and get a Librem 14 or if I was spending the same/less i'd get suped up T440P from Vikings. I can see the appeal if wanting an AMD CPU/GPU is a dealbreaker for you but seems like a lot to give up on the privacy/security front.

A lot of people gave up on privacy long ago. I know I pretty much have; I can either spend a ton of time being obsessed with it and still probably not really succeed, or I can accept that the only reason there probably isn't anyone who knows that much about my really private stuff is that nobody cares, but all the information I generate that has any use for targeted advertising is applied in ten seconds flat and that's just how it's gonna be until the revolution comes.

Be the change you want to see. If you don't care about privacy then that's one thing but if one does care; does nothing to achieve what privacy they can; and then complains how they have none; then they get no sympathy from me.

The change I want to see would be institutional, so it's kind of hard for me to "be" it. Sorta like, while I own an electric car, the change I want to see involves heavy investment in public transit, which is not something I can instantiate individually. The idea that individual consumer behaviour can create meaningful change is largely a myth--and if you delve into the origins of that myth, it turns out to be mostly corporate propaganda trying to deflect people's thinking away from public action (that might actually work, and in doing so cut into profits) to individual, ineffectual action.
So doing this and that to harden your personal privacy is basically spitting into the wind for smugness points. "Doing something to achieve privacy" would involve political action.

I don't do nearly all that I can, but I do several things that I find convenient enough: I've never had social media accounts; I avoid devices, operating systems and services by google/amazon/apple/microsoft/insert-megacorp-here; I prefer local and self-hosted software to alternatives in the cloud; I block ads and most cookies; and so on. None of that costs me much time really. In fact, in some cases it saves me a lot of it. And I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything important or even interesting.

I have no desire to fake my death, wrap myself in tinfoil and go live in a cave, but I don't think that's a reason to give up on my privacy completely.

I'm surprised they went with Realtek instead of Intel for wifi. Especially considering that it was built specifically with Linux in mind.
