Manjaro Linux Now Has Its Very Own Laptop - The ‘Station X Spitfire Manjaro Special Edition’
Linux users who’ve dreamed of buying a laptop that runs Manjaro Linux can wake up happy — one has just been announced. The ‘Station X Spitfire Manjaro Special Edition’ is the first Manjaro-based laptop from UK-based computer sellers Station X.
Described as the ‘ultimate marriage of software and hardware’, the UK-based computer company explain that Manjaro created a new spin of its XFCE-based distribution that is ‘fully tuned’ to the Spitfire’s hardware. “From intricate kernel tweaks, to streamlined settings, and even custom changes to the battery, CPU, and sound settings – our humble Spitfire has now become the ULTIMATE Manjaro Machine.”
There’s an all-aluminum chassis with a laster-etched Manjaro logo on the lid, a 13.3-inch 1080p IPS display, and backlit keyboard (complete with Manjaro super key). The internals pack an 7th generation Intel processors (either an Intel core i5-7200u @ 2.2GHz or Intel core i7-7500u @ 2.7GHz); up to 32GB RAM; Intel HD graphics; and a choice of storage options.
While there is currently no word on pricing for this special edition you should expect to pay roughly the same as for the standard version of the Station X Spitfire, which retails from £850, when pre-orders open on October 13, 2017.
Manjaro is currently my favourite desktop distro. Being an Arch Linux based rolling distro you should never have to do a complete upgrade install as it keeps getting incremental updates.
