System76 has recently unveiled its plans to begin designing and manufacturing its own hardware, but some time will surely pass until that happens. In the meantime, the company's Galago Pro light notebook is almost ready to ship, and pre-orders can be placed for various hardware setups of this Ubuntu-driven portable.

The System76 Galago Pro ultrabook starts at $899 USD, this price covering a configuration that includes the 3.1 GHz Intel Core i5-7200U processor, 4 GB DDR4 RAM, 120 GB M.2 SSD storage, as well as a rich set of connectivity options - WiFi, Bluetooth, HDMI, Thunderbolt 3, USB 3.1, and more.

However, a more powerful hardware setup that does not include ridiculous options (including a 2 TB NVMe SSD drive, for example, would add $1,449 USD to the price tag) can easily hit the $1,500 USD barrier. We configured the Galago Pro with the 3.5 GHz Intel Core i7-7500U, 8 GB RAM, a 250 GB NVMe SSD drive, a faster WiFi + Bluetooth adapter, also choosing to get the three-year warranty instead of the standard one-year. The resulting Galago Pro notebook has a price tag of $1,467 USD.

Those interested can go to System76's website and configure their Galago Pro as well. Shipments are expected to begin in May.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
