If you wanted a portable video editing workstation or a gaming machine you can take with you wherever you go, you’d be hard pressed to find more impressive specs from any manufacturer, let alone one that ships with Linux-compatible hardware like System76. So I mentioned to System76 that I wanted to test the Oryx Pro and compare it to the Dell XPS as a “developer” laptop. Frankly, the company was a little hesitant, pointing out that the two aren’t really – aside from both shipping with Ubuntu installed – at all alike. And soon after the Oryx Pro arrived, I really understood just how different these machines area.
System76 has really become a household name in Linux circles for great machines with fantastic out-of-the-box Linux support.
