HP Dev One is HP’s first developer-focused laptop preloaded with the Ubuntu-based Pop!_OS Linux distribution

By coming pre-loaded with Pop!_OS and its “Cosmic” desktop experience. This offers easy-access to tiling window features, thousands of Flatpak apps through the Pop Shop, and more frequent kernel and graphic driver updates than those running regular Ubuntu get.

Physically, the HP Dev One is based on the HP EliteBook 845 G8 but it’s not identical. This spin comes without Windows, lacks the premium branded speaker tech (which I often feel is a gimmick anyway), and —mercifully— has none of the extra “software” HP like to saddle their Windows laptops with.

Good to see more and more OEM computers being sold with Linux preinstalled.
