    Phoronix: System76 Moves Ahead With Preparing To Manufacture Their Own Desktop Linux PCs

    Back in April 2017 was the announcement that System76 would begin designing and manufacturing their own systems beginning with desktops and to be followed at a later date by their own laptops, rather than relying upon whitebox designs that they currently retail with their Ubuntu/Pop!_OS-loaded PCs.

    I would'n say, the original price is doubling imported in EU, but.
    ++ Usualy No Warrany, warranty available in US is practically useless. Better a Dell or HP.

    Linux has too much competition to afford being hindered by such trivial petty bullshit.

    A friend of Linux is a friend of mine.
    Everyone should support fair labor wages, decent environmental regulations, etc. So, yes, it matters a lot where something is produced. It doesn't have to be the US, but the US is far better than China or India.

    And it's said that first million is the hardest. Are your parents interested in divesting and loaning me $1 mill for a non-tech related idea I am kicking around?

    Look at Asus GL702ZC, it has a desktop CPU (Ryzen 1700) and GPU (RX580) inside a laptop chassis, max 32GB RAM.

    No and they likely never will. The cost of doing ARM in a way to make it something more than a throw-away device is way too high, which is why nobody really does usable ARM devices well, outside of high-end dev boards.

    You mean they're gonna actually manufacture something and not just resell Clevo notebooks?
