The New StarFighter Linux Laptop Now Available for Preorder

Nov 21, 2022

A new, completely customizable Linux laptop is now available to preorder from Star Labs.

Star Labs has been creating Linux laptops for some time now and recently they announced a new addition to their fleet of options, the StartFighter custom laptop. This beautiful piece of technology features a true matte display that uses a protective coating to defuse ambient light so colors can shine brighter. The display offers up to 3840x2400 4K resolution, a 16:10 aspect ratio, and 600cd/m² of brightness at a 165 Hz refresh rate and 178 degrees of viewing.

Other features found on the StarFighter include a removable webcam with built-in storage, a kill switch to shut off wireless when needed, a backlit keyboard with media keys, international layouts, and LED indicators. The StarFighter also includes a haptic trackpad, and a Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation coaching for a textured finish that is stronger than steel and fingerprint resistant.

You’ll find WiFI 6E and Bluetooth 5.3, HDMI, USB-C/A, MicroSD, and an audio combo jack. The firmware on the StarPilot is the open-course coreboot and the battery is charged by a Gallium Nitride charger that provides 65 watts over USB-C.

As far as components, the base model comes with a 12th gen Intel i3 CPU but can be upgraded to an AMD Ryzen 7 (6800H) or an intel i9. The StarFighter can support up to 64 GB of RAM and the storage can range from 240 GB to 2TB.

Configure and preorder your StarFighter laptop today. The base model starts at $1,509.30. Keep in mind, however, the laptops may not ship for 4-5 months from now.
