  • Having "Freedom" is cool at first but gets old quickly. Productivity on the other hand is something that is a constant pain if you dont have it. And im sorry to say, Linux is not very good at productivity. It simply lacks that polish and fluidity found on macs and windows machines. If you enjoy configuring every single detail on your computer just for sake of being able to configure Linux is for you.

  • I bought an MSI laptop with nice specs for £1200 (it was very affordable for its spec) which, by the way, isn't being sold anymore and was deliberately named to make it confusing for customers to buy the right laptop, yet going to System76's site, I can build a S76 Gazelle to the same spec and it only costs £2.00-50.00 more (when converting from USD, and deciding on SSD speed), and this option will be there for a long time.

  • the "i could have configure something better" is what makes me never try linux again. I know its way better but always something to configure + graphic software not running there is a shame.

    luan maialuan maiaپیش 10 روز
    • Nowadays you can configure things to oblivion if you so desire but you can also get some very complete distros that just run and do everything they have to without tinkering, especially since driver support is much better and except for some laptop nvidia cards it usually runs out of the box. And system76 is helping that happen a lot, both because pop! os pushed support for nvidia cards and because in a computer like this they wrote software to enable toggling between internal and dedicated gpu, that was completely open, as opposed to the propietary and not linux-supported nvidia drivers of before. All in all you can get a linux system that just works nowadays and will most likely have no problem.

  • I love the idea and came within seconds of clicking the "checkout" on my System76 shopping cart.. Then I realized I could get a lot more bang for my buck by going with a regular gaming laptop and installing Linux. I would love to get a System76 machine, but they are as overpriced as MacBooks. So not really not worth it. I hope that changes in the future.

  • Pointlessly shifting camera angles detract from Anthony's great presentation style. It would have been better if there were just one top camera (just for the box opening); one screen camera and one frontal camera, but most importantly, cuts were chosen purposefully.

  • This seems to be an example of imagination, how someone with a different but very functional and user friendly operating system could kill off Microsoft's semi-monopoly some day. Microsoft can't stay the big boss of the whole planet forever, especially since so much of their software still comes with stupid hickups, that often make it seem like they are developing such a thing for the first time..........

  • So so close. If they made a machine with a pointing stick, ECC RAM, and a Quadro, I'd be SOLD. My current machine has those and I spent a bit more than $2000 sale price on a bit more than $4000 regular price. If you want to call your laptop "workstation class", I think that's a minimum.

  • Anthony when compared to Linus, he's so calm, has a soothing voice, has better knowledge about the mixes and things of a computer. Overall he's the "most loved guy in Linus Tech Tips" (*maybe*) I said this on the basis of my views on LTT, ShortCircuit & Techquickie channels comparing when others like Brandon, Dennis with Linus & Anthony with Linus

  • While remapping Fn+T to output L might be fun, actual use for this might be remapping those Fn+Fx (where Fx is F1…F12) key kombos to do something useful. One of my keyboards has a bunch of media control buttons (play/stop/pause), while I'd like to remap them to, say, screen brightness controls. Doing this in keyboard firmware would be cross-platform (independent of installed OS) and, probably, more reliable.

  • Where did you find your Anthony? Did you grow him in graphene sack, containing soil from Linus Torvalds garden? I think you should reproduce him in a variety of different colours. How long does he take to recharge? Does he come with a custom water cooling loop or is he purely air cooled? I think we can all tell he is running custom firmware....
