    Nnnnnice. I like it. But I saw in the intro that they have a mini computer called a Meerkat. That's the computer I want. But I NEED a laptop. And did I understand this is running on Linux? I have been wanting to break away from MS based computers for a while.

    would this be a good laptop to buy for pentesting? i feel like having flashable open source firmware would be a bit of a potential security flaw, maybe you guys could do a video on a range of good pentesting laptops or running parrot or kali? maybe having budget option, small form factor and no compromises? i know Anthony probably has the best knowledge of who makes the best systems for running linux operating systems, would be nice to have a video coming from a source i actually trust unlike the plenty of videos done by people who haven't proven any linux tech knowledge such as the people posting borderline powerpoint presentations with loud music and no commentary

    I went to school for photography and I've been a lifelong Mac user and working as a photographer so Macs are what everybody uses, however I've recently switched to Linux and bought a system76 laptop and I've never been happier. working with it has been amazing and my switch to free open source software, while it may not be quite as feature-rich as Photoshop and illustrator to name a couple of examples, using GIMP and Inkscape has been great and it's really nice to own my software again oh, it totally gets the job done, no problem. I also use Darktable, which blows me away how good it is. Using the system 76 laptop has been really such a joy, I will never buy or use a Mac again. I actually used my old MacBook Pro which was just collecting dust and not getting used it all and have no more support from Apple to install Ubuntu on it, and it performs way better than it did with Mac OS, where I would get the stupid spinning beach ball thing all the time. It's flying with Ubuntu and running the latest 2020 software. I've since made a donation to The Ubuntu project. Well worth it.

    The only turnoff for this laptop is the keyboard layout. I don't like numpad. I think it's useless, at least for me and forces me to have that awkward position where my hands are aligned to the left of the screen instead of the center. And this is the only reason I have opted out from buying from System76.

    Anthony is such a likeable and knowledgeable lad! I worry about his health a little though it would be great to see him start going to gym with Linus (and maybe even upload vids of this if he would be comfortable about that). Nothing against him here, but I would love him to improve his physique, so it matches his personality!

    Thanks Anthony for this great review. I didn't know about System76 but it's pretty amazing! I'm a Linux user and developer since '93 and I never had a laptop that was 100% Linux compatible and supported, even though some of them came really close to 100% after a couple of years... Those System76 laptops are kinda pricey compared to "normal" brands but I can understand why. I think my next laptop will be a Oryx Pro...

    the fan just kicked in cause it's running Linux. The OS where EVERYTHING has to be configured. God forbid anyone say anything bad about it or you're a monster. Oh linux never has issues, oh linux never crashes. Honestly, you can have a good experience or bad, but honestly, most distros are only for avid users that know how to use a Linux command line.
