The System76 laptop comes pre-installed with the user’s Ubuntu Linux or Ubuntu’s System76 Pop!_OS downstream choice. This high-quality Linux laptop weighs 4.85 lbs (2.2 kg) and measures 36 x 25 x 2.9 cm.

Enjoy fast, steady progress with Kudu’s powerful AMD H-Class processor. The Kudu laptop is equipped to handle longer sessions so you can taste the victory of beating your schedule.

Stream, play, edit, and browse tutorials in the same session. The Kudu laptop is equipped with NVIDIA RTX 3060 graphics to keep pace with ambitious mavericks like you.

Orchestrate success on up to four displays using one HDMI, one mini DisplayPort, and one DisplayPort over USB-C.

Pop!_OS is designed to stay out of the way so you can do what you do best. Discover and create efficiently with fast navigation, easy organization, and a smooth, convenient workflow.

Possible turn-off for some users is the lack of a 4K HD display and the use of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 graphics. There are no AMD Radeon graphics options for users wishing to use the open source driver stack or wanting the integrated GPU found with the Ryzen 9 5900HX.

The System76 Kudu has a starting MSRP of $1,799. The specs are outstanding overall, even with the high cost due to System76’s more undersized purchasing ability compared to other manufacturers such as ASUS with their ROG STRIX G15 AMD Advantage which is currently available at a more profitable price.
