Purism Librem 14 Linux Laptop Begins Shipping

If privacy is your main reason for investing in a laptop with a Linux OS, go for the Purism Librem 14. It uses GNU/Linux PureOS, and the company detects software and hardware tampering with PureBoot and the Librem Key.

Purism Librem 14 is ultra-portable workstation laptop that was designed chip-by-chip, line-by-line, to respect your rights to privacy, security, and freedom. It is probably the most advanced, secure, and powerful laptop that Purism made so far.

With this laptop, the Intel Management Engine has been disabled to reduce risk and bloat in the system. If you’re one who’s always worried about someone seeing through your camera or listening through your microphone, Purism takes that fear away with their security promise. Their hardware kill switches will physically disconnect the camera and mic if your laptop detects anything suspicious.

The laptop comes with Purism’s custom Linux distribution called PureOS as well as the open source Coreboot firmware (a replacement for proprietary UEFI or BIOS firmware).
