Tuxedo releases the Tiger Lake-H-powered InfinityBook S17 - Gen6, its smallest 17-inch Linux laptop yet
Tuxedo is launching the InfinityBook S17 - Gen6 thin and light Linux laptops with Intel Tiger Lake-H processors. Even though these new models are touted as desktop replacement devices, they do not feature a discrete GPU. Nevertheless, users can benefit from the included Thunderbolt 4 connector that enables the use of external GPUs.
The InfinityBook S17 - Gen6 features a 17.3-inch Full-HD IPS display with thin screen bezels all around, so the screen-to-body factor almost matches that of a 15.6-inch model. Thus, its dimensions are quite compact at 395 x 250.7 x 19.8 mm, making it the smallest 17-incher in the Tuxedo portfolio, and it only weighs 2.25 kg (4.96 lbs).
Despite its lightness, the InfinityBook S17 - Gen6 still packs enough power to match your average desktop. Processor options include the Intel Core i5-11300H with Iris Xe G7 80 EUs iGPU and the Core i7-11370H with Iris Xe G7 96 EUs iGPU, which can be coupled with up to 64 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM and up to 4 TB of NVMe SSD storage through a PCIe 4.0 x4 + PCIe 3.0 x4 M.2 2280 slot combo. Port selection comes with a Thunderbolt 4 connector with DP and power delivery capabilities, USB-C 3.2 Gen2x2, USB-A 3.2 Gen2, USB 2.0, HDMI 1.4b video output, 2-in-1 audio and GbE jacks, plus a handy microSD card reader.
Other notable features include an ergonomic and cooling-optimized Lift-Up hinge, a large 73 Wh battery that can last up to 6-7 hours in practical office workloads, a FlexiCharger BIOS option that can limit the battery charging to increase lifespan, Wi-Fi 6 + Bluetooth 5.2 + GbE NIC, HD webcam with Windows Hello support, and TPM 2.0 security.
The base configuration with the Intel Core i5-11300H, 8 GB RAM, 250 GB Kingston NVMe PCIe SSD, and TUXEDO_OS 20.04 LTS ready-to-use pre-installed starts at 1119 EUR (~US$1255). Pre-orders are now up on the official site and deliveries will be processed within 2-3 weeks.
