Are you on the lookout for a Linux-powered laptop that can go the distance and exceed your needs of power, size, and battery life? If that sounds like the perfect machine to fill your dance card, and you’re not looking for the most brilliant display on the market, Entroware has the laptop for you.
The Proteus 15.6-inch is a re-design of the original mobile workstation and includes something few other Linux laptops can match — a 73 Wh battery that can be charged via USB Type-C cable (so you don’t have to carry around so many cables). The original Proteus included a 62.16 Wh battery, so this is a good jump in battery life. Although there is no claim on battery life to be found on the Proteus page, you can expect to be able to use this laptop for quite some time before you’re plugging it back in for a charge.
But the battery isn’t the only impressive feature, as the Proteus base model ships with a Core i5-1135G7 (up to 4.20 GHz with 4 Cores and 8 Threads), 8GB of DDR4 2666 MHz RAM, and a 250GB PCIe NVMe SSD. The Proteus can be maxed out with a Core i7, 64 GB of RAM, and up to a 2TB SSD. And although the screen isn’t all that brag-worthy, it’s still an IPS LED at 1920×1080). The Proteus also includes an expansion slot for M.2 storage devices, which will allow you to add up to 4 TB of capacity.
The base price of the Proteus is £819.99 and can be purchased now through the Entroware website.
