Purism reveal their powerful privacy-focused Librem 14 laptop

Quoting: EhvisYou're paying quite the premium for those privacy features though. Did a quick check on what it would cost to have it "here" (including VAT and such), it would be about 40% more expensive than a locally available laptop of similar specs. For that difference I would sort out my own privacy settings.

If your time is worthless, yes. But if you count your time for what it's worth then sorting out your own privacy settings would cost you more than the 40%, and you might still not be able to get the same level of security.

Most people are waiting for an AMD GPU. But this one is a nice machine. Nice to seem them finally giving a compact gaming machine without sacrificing specs (the previous Oryx Pro was bigger than this). Also, good to see the battery bumped to 73Wh. I wonder how long this one lasts, though with an 8 core H series CPU I don't expect it to last much.

Meh, I still prefer to just download the game to my Linux machine and play it there.

I'm fine with Intel, but give me that discrete Intel GPU.

Stadia gets GRID, SteamWorld Dig 2 and SteamWorld Quest for March Pro subs - Spitlings is out

Is Stadia still a thing? It seems it's doing terrible in the market. I hear almost no one talking about it, which is not surprising given the very small game catalogue.

As AMD launch the monster 3990X CPU, System76 offer it up with their stylish Thelio Major

Meh. I want an AMD powered laptop from System76. Why is that taking so long?

Quoting: LinasIn Denmark I see people using Linux on their laptops from time to time. MacBooks are very popular. But I don't think I have ever seen a Chromebook, either in use, or in a shop. Not anywhere in Northern or Eastern Europe for that matter.
