Apple makes a damn good laptop, and its new MacBook Pro computers are no exception. Unfortunately for some, Apple’s latest offerings are too expensive and fall short — most models lack the ability to upgrade the SSD, and the RAM maxes out at 16GB. Interestingly, many upset Apple fans even turned to System76 and its Ubuntu-powered machines following the big MacBook Pro unveil.
At the time, I compared the MacBook Pro to the Oryx Pro to highlight that you could get more performance from System76 for less money. Obviously, it was not an entirely fair comparison, as they are different in many ways. For example, the Oryx Pro only featured a 1080p screen. Today, this changes, however, as System76 adds a 4K display option to its MacBook Pro competitor. Will this make macOS users more likely to switch to Linux?
The Oryx Pro is one of System76’s most well-balanced machines. In fact, Ryan Sipes, Community Manager at System76 tells me, “the Oryx is our metal body professional grade laptop. It’s slim enough to travel with you, but powerful enough to accomplish any task”.
