System76 Refreshes the Galago Pro Laptop

Nov 19, 2020

Linux hardware maker has revamped one of their most popular laptops.

System76 is known to push the envelope of form and function. But when something works, why reinvent the wheel? That is precisely why the Denver, CO company has given their most popular laptop a bit of a refresh.

The Galago Pro now supports the latest 11th Gen Intel Core i5 and i7 processors and can top out at 64GB of RAM. And although the base model ships with Intel Iris Xe graphics, the laptop can be spec’d with an optional NVIDIA GTX 1650 GPU.

Carl Richell, founder and CEO of System76, says of the updates to the laptop, “The Galago Pro has always been a fan favorite of our laptop offerings. The extremely light chassis and well balanced mix of components, all for a very good price, make the Galago an all around excellent computer choice for gamers and engineers alike.”

The new take on the Galago Pro will have the same chassis as always (sporting a 14" display), which weighs in at 3.1 lbs and includes an Li-ion 49 Wh battery, 1 × USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C/Thunderbolt 4, 1 × USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C, 2 × USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A, and a MicroSD Card Reader.

You can purchase the new Galago Pro, starting at $999 for the base configuration, at System76.
