We would like to introduce you to the newest version of the extremely portable Lemur laptop. Like all System76 laptops the Lemur ships with Ubuntu, and you can choose between 16.04 LTS or the newest 16.10 release.

About System76

System76 is based out of Denver, Colorado and has been making Ubuntu computers for ten years. Creating great machines born to run Linux is our sole purpose. Members of our team are contributors to many different open source projects and we send our work enabling hardware on our computers upstream, to the benefit of everyone running our favorite operating system.

Our products have been praised as the best machines born to run Linux by fans including Chris Fisher of The Linux Action Show and Leo Laporte of This Week in Tech. We pride ourselves in offering fantastic products and providing first-class support to our users. Our support staff themselves are Linux/Ubuntu users and open source contributors, like Emma Marshall who is a host on the Ubuntu podcast.

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).
