A New Linux Laptop Is in the Making

Apr 27, 2020

Manjaro Linux and TUXEDO computers have joined forces to develop the InfinityBook Manjaro.

TUXEDO Computers is working in conjunction with the team behind Manjaro Linux to create a new Manjaro-based 15" laptop, called the InfinityBook Manjaro. The Manjaro team will provide the software and TUXEDO Computers will provide the hardware. This symbiosis will result in a laptop that can be configured with up to 64GB of DDR RAM, a 10th gen four-core Core i7 processor, and up to 2TB of internal storage.

Other unique features for this Linux-powered laptop include an aluminum cover and inner side, 12 hour battery life, Mini-DisplayPort and HDMI connection, GB LAN port, USB type C with Thunderbolt 3 support, several standard USB ports, headphone/microphone jacks, the Super Tux key (in place of the Windows key), the ability to change the keyboard’s backlight color, a laser engraved Manjaro logo on the back of the display, and a brilliant red chassis.

The sales of the InfinityBook Manjaro will benefit both TUXEDO Computers and Manjaro. To this point, Herber Feiler, CEO of TUXEDO Computers GmbH, said, “We are pleased about the cooperation, especially since the sale of the InfinityBook Manjaro is a financial support for the team of Manjaro Linux and we thus contribute to keep the diversity of OpenSource upright.”

Philip Müllerj, Project Manager of Manjaro Linux and CEO of Manjaro GmbH & Co. KG, said of the collaboration, “After the first meeting at a trade fair event was very informal, we are delighted that such a well thought-out partnership has come about. This allows both sides to contribute their strengths and Linux users worldwide to benefit from the advantages.”

At the moment, the only model that is up for pre-order is the 15" version of the laptop. Future configurations will include a 14" model with an opening angle of 180 degrees.
