Linux Laptops

Last updated on October 26, 2021

Years ago it used to be that installing Linux on a laptop was a manufacturer unsupported thing that only hackers do. Nowadays, there are dozens of system manufacturers emerging that treat Linux as a first-class citzen and ship the machine pre-installed with a variety of LInux distros. Here is my list of Linux Laptops that I’m aware of.

Starlabs

A promising new contender into the linux hardware space

Conclusion

This is an incomplete list of every current-gen linux laptop out there, but it’s a good start. I will be updating it as I learn of more laptop vendors in this space. Feel free to let me know of other vendors that belong on this list!
