About the Lemur

This is our 7th generation release of the Lemur, and it’s now 10% faster with the 7th gen Intel processor (Kaby Lake). Loaded with the newest Intel graphics, up to 32GB of DDR4 memory, and USB type-C port, this Lemur enables more powerful multitasking on the go.

Weighing in at 3.6 lbs, this beauty is light enough to carry from meeting to meeting, or across campus. The Lemur design is thin, built with a handle grip at the back of the laptop, allowing you to easily grasp your Lemur and rush off to your next location.

The Lemur retains its reputation, as the perfect option for those who want a high-quality portable Linux laptop at an affordable price (starting at only $699 USD).

You can see the full tech specs and other details about the Lemur here.
