Entroware is a UK-based company that only sells computers loaded with Linux-based operating systems, and it recently introduced a new model to its portfolio. Dubbed Orion, this Ubuntu-powered laptop can be customized as needed, the list of available options including three Skylake processors, as well as multiple memory and storage configurations.

Entroware Orion has the following specs, features, and options:

  • Processor: Intel Core i3 6100U/i5 6200U/i7 6500U
  • Memory/Storage: 4 GB, 8 GB, or 16 GB DDR3 1600 MHz; 500 GB or 1 TB HDD, 120 GB to 2 TB SSD, plus an additional 120 GB to 480 GB M.2 SSD
  • Display: 14-inch matte HD LED IPS with 1,920X1,080 pixels
  • Camera: 1 MP 720p webcam
  • Connectivity: Intel AC-8260 WiFi + Bluetooth & Gigabit Ethernet, 1XUSB 2.0, 2XUSB 3.0, HDMI, VGA, RJ-45, 6-in-1 card reader
  • Operating system: Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, Ubuntu MATE 16.04 LTS, or none
  • Battery: 4 Cell Lithium-Ion (32Wh)
  • Weight: 3.97 pounds

The basic version that retails for about $650 USD features the Intel Core i3 processor, 4 GB RAM, a 500 GB HDD and no secondary drive. Linux fans who need something else can also choose an Intel NUC known as Aura, the 13-inch Apollo notebook, or other pieces of Ubuntu-driven hardware. Obviously, these machines can be purchased without an operating system as well.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
