StarLabs is not just a research facility in the world of The Flash, it’s also a company that sells Linux laptops. Up until now, StarLabs only had one device for sale, the 11″ Star Lite Mk III, which offered an 11.6″ screen, 1.1GHz quad-core Intell Pentium N5000 CPU, a 240GB SSD drive, 8GB of LPDDR4 onboard memory, and up to 7 hours of battery life.
The Star Lite was specced to be a low-end machine and started at £399.00. At the moment, the Star Lite is unavailable for purchase. However, the company will soon release the StarBook, which can be spec’d quite a bit beefier than the original, with a 14″ matte IPS display, an 11th gen Intel CPU (either i3-1110G4 or i7-1165G7), up to a 1TB NVMe SSD drive, up to 64GB of DDR4 memory, a full-sized backlit keyboard, and up to 11 hours of battery life. The base-model StarBook can be purchased now at £777.00 and a fully-spec’d model will run approximately £1,552.00.
Although the StarBook won’t compete with flagship Linux laptops (such as the System76 Galago Pro or Serval WS), it should serve as a quality mobile Linux machine for on-the-go users. When you go to purchase your StarBook, you can select your choice of Linux distribution, from Ubuntu 20.04.2, elementary OS 5.1.7, Linux Mint 20.1, Manjaro 21.0, MX Linux 19.4, or Zorin OS 15.3 (Core or Ultimate).
