        $1000 for that hardware is a good price.
        Running Linux doesn’t make PCs cheap.

      Hot on the heels of its unexpected (but ultimately fantastic) collaboration with computer giant HP, System76 is back with another big announcement: bringing its products to Europe…

      While it seems that 14″ displays and smaller are all the rage, I personally don’t like a screen size less than 15½”, especially with widescreen which cuts down on height.  With all the super goodies on the computer described, I would expect nothing smaller than a 15½” display.

      We're getting Sticker Shock everywhere now, not just car dealers.

        Besides the 14″, which same as Charlie I don’t find attractive, is the fact that, reading the article linked by Microfix, I gather the laptop is not configurable online while buying it in this way, so if one would like more RAM memory, then would have to add it oneself, or go to a computer shop to have it done there. I remember that HP computers can be configured online, so I wonder why this one is not. Also, by the description in the same article, it comes with the bottom of the line of Ryzen CPUs, probably just a step up in some to me unclear respect, but same clocking speed, number of cores and threads as the Ryzen 7 5800U:

        System76 own laptops include models with 15″ screens and larger, and can be configured online:

        I wonder what is the special advantage on having this HP with Pop!_OS installed, other than perhaps in price for someone who only needs something basic and therefore relatively inexpensive.

        What I do like about the device is the ability to upgrade storage and ram, none of this soldered nonsense. I’d also agree that screen size IS a bit disapppointing, probably an engineered powersaving quirk to make battery longevity more attractive.
        At this rate well be seing the return of the 10″ netbooks, sheesh. (still have mine with debian 11 and runs nice and smooth)

          The System76 computers, going by this video, have plug-in, not soldered or glued RAM:
