Open source notebook

Posted November 20, 2014

The Purism Librem 15 is the high-end laptop where you are in control and have complete visibility into the kernel, the operating system, and all software. Meticulously designed chip by chip to work with free and open source software, the Librem reinstates your rights to freedom and privacy.


Bundled with a fully free, software, GNU/Linux based operating system, with free professional quality web browser, email, graphics, drawing, word processing, presentation, spreadsheet, and media software.

Though the bootloader, Linux kernel, GNU OS, and all software applications are completely free software without any binary blobs, the BIOS does use coreboot, which includes a binary from Intel, called FSP.

Dimensions: 375 x 244 x 22mm @ 2kg, the base model has a 15.6” 1920×1080 display, 720p camera, an 8 core 2.3GHz Intel i7 processor with nVidia Graphics, 4GB of memory, 500GB of storage, 802.11n Wireless, and we even had room to put a CD/DVD ROM drive. All the necessary ports are added: an SDXC card slot, headphone jack, three USB 3.0 ports, one HDMI, and a pop-down RJ45 network jack.
