System76, a US-based computer manufacturer specializing in the distribution of notebooks, desktop and server computers powered by the Ubuntu Linux operating system, launched a new model of their famous Lemur laptop.
If you’re currently enjoying your excellent Lemur laptop from System76, you should know that a better version is now available, featuring 7th generation Intel i3-7100U or i7-7500U Kaby Lake processors that provide stunning performance and much faster Intel HD 620 graphics. The new Lemur laptop also features up to 32 GB of dual-channel DDR4 RAM.
Connectivity-wise, the new Lemur laptop ships with a brand new USB Type-C port, along with one USB 3.0 and one USB 2.0 port, a built-in SD card reader, Gigabit Ethernet, Intel Wireless-AC, Bluetooth, an HDMI 1.4a port, as well as a VGA port. It also features M.2 SSD support for up to 4.5TB storage, stereo speakers and mic, headphone and mic jacks, Kensington lock, and a 720p (1280×960) HD webcam.
As expected, the laptop comes pre-installed with the latest Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system from Canonical, which will receive maintenance updates for five years, until April 2021.
