I now regret that I recently bought a new laptop. Especially since mine currently works poorly with Linux.
Very slim and portable and metallic like this is just what I like.

My current notebook is nearly perfect for except for one really, really big issue:
It doesn't suspend/resume reliably. Not even under windows. And MSI never released a single firmware update for it. EVER.


If this one had the new 6700U instead (mostly faster GPU) I would really consider getting it. But the 5700U's gpu performance is too much of a downgrade for me. (Coming from a 4800H CPU + 5600M dGPU)
Great to see more linux hardware. The HP Dev One laptop just got delivered to me today.
I am excited to put it though it's paces and see how well it works.

Hmmm, with only FHD screens it doesn't really cause much attention here....

I do like the support for the KDE project though.

Most if not all Notebooks made by Tuxedo are coming with a 1080p@60Hz panel. I personally think it is the best solution for a 14" or 15" display anyway.

If you wan't to use this device for some "light" gaming, 1080p will also be the maximum resolution the integrated GPU can handle at a decent performance in most cases.

Hmm, though this is a gaming site: I wouldn't buy a laptop for gaming only.
The Tuxedo InfinityBook 14 has 2880x1800 (and to me was the by far most exciting laptop in the last years).

Depends on what you call 'light'. I'd call 'light' what I do, and for that my 6-year old T460p (2560x1440, Optimus) is fine, for a lot of what I play even when using the (Skylake) Intel graphics.

I'm not demanding higher resolution as default. But I'd like to have the option, else the offer very quickly drops off my list....

It is of course my personal opinion but turning games down to 1080p on a display with a higher native resolution does often result in a bad quality. Another way to get decent performance and stay at a higher resolution is to lower the quality settings. I personaly rather play with a lower native resolution high performance (144Hz) display and high quality settings.
