Have some spare cash and in the market for a pricey and powerful Linux laptop? TUXEDO would like a word with you for their Stellaris 16 (Gen5). For those of you who want desktop-class performance in something easier to move around, perhaps it might be interesting.
This upgraded model now includes the ability to spec it up to a RTX 4090, which is pretty ridiculous to have in a laptop. It also has a Cherry MX ULP keyboard for much improved typing, although they offer a cheaper silent option too. It has a 240Hz G-SYNC 2560 x 1600 screen and 16GB DDR5 RAM at a minimum too. When it comes to the base configuration you'll get an Intel Core i9-13900HX, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060, 2 x 8 GB DDR5-5600-MHz and a 500 GB Samsung 980 SSD.
Connectivity plenty too according to the specs sheet as it comes with a USB-A 3.2 Gen 2, two USB-A 3.2 Gen 1, Microphone-in, Headpone-out, a SD/SDHC/SDXC card reader, Thunderbolt 4 / USB-C 4 Gen 3, HDMI 2.1, 2.5Gbit LAN and even space to hook up their TUXEDO Aquaris water cooling system.
They seem to be especially hyping up the cooling system on this one, noting it has "6 heatpipes" with a "liquid metal thermal compound on the CPU and GPU" that allows it to hit top performance and stay there claiming it's "superior to the one of typical thin-and-light gaming notebooks and allows for comparatively higher performance or alternatively quieter operation" to provide "outstanding performance for content creation or gaming".
Pricing starts at €1763.87 EUR (excl. VAT). They expect it to become available at the end of April, with pre-orders live now.

Some employers like to give options to their employees: "do you want the greatest fruit-computer like a sophisticated man of culture that we like or some whatever boring pee-see, like a genetically inferior caveman loser?" I'm paraphrasing.
So you can pick whatever non-fruit computer you like, but the budget is set and it's BIG. So why would anyone want to be a sophisticated man of culture in that sense, when you can be a whatever with the big F-off computer like that and not locked in a walled garden.
"Give me liberty, or give me fruit-like computer" - as one of the founding fathers of America had said. I'm paraphrasing.
That said, I do find the price extremely fair compared to the competition.
