HP has teamed up with System76 to create a developer-focused laptop, called the Dev One, which ships with Pop!_OS Linux and starts at $1099.00. The original announcement came out in May 2022 and, at the time, the laptop was unavailable for pre-order. Fast forward to now and users can now order one of these shiny new pieces of Linux-powered hardware.
The Dev One keeps the prices slightly lower by going with an AMD CPU and shrugs off a discrete graphics card. The base model ships with an 8 Core, 16-thread Ryzen 7 Pro 5850U with a 1.9-4.4 GHz clock speed, an integrated Radeon graphics chipset, and 8GB of DDR4-3200 RAM (upgradable to 64GB). The chassis is .75″ thick and has a 1TB PCIe 3×4 NVMe M.2 SSD and the display is 14″ at 1920×1080 and 1,000 nits max brightness. However, due to the display glass, the brightness is actually 800 nits.
The specs claim up to 12-hours of battery life.
Pre-order your HP Dev One now. One thing to note is it seems there is no way to currently upgrade the base spec model on the pre-order site. However, you can add a System76 Launch Keyboard for an added $285.
