System76 are turning 15 years old so to celebrate they’re running a huge sale across most of their hardware and you can bag some huge savings.
The thing is, System76 have become in my opinion pretty essential to the Linux ecosystem. They’ve gone from tiny beginnings in 2005 selling hardware with Ubuntu tested and supported that all looked pretty generic and rebrands, to having their own factory and production line where they make custom cases for their Thelio desktop line (and eventually likely Laptops too). Not only that, they’re also firmly committed to FOSS values too, with System76 continuing to roll out their Open Firmware and Open Source Embedded Controller to more devices.
Across this last year System76 have released a fair amount of new hardware too, they’re always busy. New kit includes the sweet Galago Pro refresh which is back with Intel Xe and NVIDIA options along with what sounds like a better cooling system than a lot of others. There was also the insanely powerful Thelio Mega with four GPUs. Their Pop!_OS Linux distribution continues to do awesome things too.
With their big birthday sale going on there’s an instant discount across much of their hardware, however there’s discounts on upgrades too as they say “the more you upgrade, the more you save” and if you order during the birthday event which runs until January 4 they will send you a commemorative System76 birthday pin.
