Products – Purism

The Librem are the first high-end laptops where you are in control and have complete visibility into the operating system, all bundled software, and the deeper levels of your computer.

Typical laptops use hardware chips coupled with software that can betray you (including tracking you without your consent). News stories have shown how these chips can surreptitiously transmit voice, networking, picture or video signals. Other chips are used to install spyware, malware or viruses. These built-in vulnerabilities can turn “your” computer into “their” computer.

Only by selecting each and every chip in our Librem laptops can we guarantee your privacy, security and freedom are protected. Intrigued? Continue further down below to learn more.

Great hardware, made to last.

Purism is manufacturing key components of the hardware and sourcing the remaining components in a way that increases your security, privacy, and freedom (read more about our sourcing and manufacturing). Our computers are made to be user-serviceable and upgradable: you can open up the internals of your Purism Librem computer simply by unscrewing the bottom of the case. The HDD/SSD, RAM, wireless chipset, and battery are all accessible, and you can replace or upgrade any of these components.

Most vendors make you pay extra to get a warranty for more than 90 days. We back our laptops with a one year warranty by default, and you have option to upgrade to a three years warranty. See the policies page for our warranty, returns & refunds policy.

A pure system

Meticulously designed chip by chip to work with free/libre and open source software, the Librem reinstates your rights to freedom and privacy. We hand selected the best hardware that still honors our strict beliefs as a Social Purpose Corporation. Our machines are offered with our easy-to-use PureOS for your convenience, while compatible with modern Free operating systems (including those with strict “drivers freedom requirements”, and those aimed at security experts, such as Qubes OS).

Say goodbye to proprietary BIOSes, say hello to coreboot.

Purism laptops are the only independently-made, brand new, high-performance laptops on the market specifically meant to pair recent technologies with our coreboot port and the potential to have a neutralized Intel Management Engine. This can be applied as a software update for the original Librem 13 (porting to the original Librem 15 is ongoing), and is now also available factory-installed starting for all new Librem laptop models since summer 2017 (you can also customize and re-flash it yourself).

Cutting-edge apps, and the future of graphics… Today.

Librems preloaded with PureOS feature the latest and greatest technologies, including GNOME 3 and the next-generation Wayland display protocol, out of the box. Thanks to this forward-thinking graphics subsystem, you can now enjoy fluid high-framerate videos without tearing, benefit from enhanced security through isolation between graphical software applications, frame-perfect hardware-accelerated animations and UI components rendering, and better power management.

Librem 15: A Laptop That Respects Your Rights

Beautiful Freedom.

We believe in users’ rights!

The Purism Librem 15 is the first high-end laptop in the world that ships without mystery software in the kernel, operating system, or any software applications. Every other consumer-grade laptop you can purchase comes with an operating system that includes suspect, proprietary software, and there’s no way for you to know what that software does.

Every chip in the hardware, every line of code in the software, everything we do, is done with our belief in respecting your rights to privacy, security, and freedom. We know you will be happy with the results!

Fifth Generation Intel Processor

Two Cores, Four Threads, 3.0GHz i7-5557U

Processors are essential, they call them central processing units, for a reason. Selecting Intel i7 based processors, the fifth generation mobile version, offers the best battery life while not compromising on speed. Processor hungry applications will finish in no time at all when using the latest generation from Intel.

Fast Memory Galore

Purism Kill Switches

Two hardware kill switches, microphone/camera and wireless/bluetooth, When they’re off, you know they’re off

You never really know if your microphone & camera are off, now with a physical toggle switch, you do, on is on, off is off. Wireless & bluetooth are combined into the second hardware switch to control all your radio signals inbound and outbound.

Matte Display

Enjoy your screen in all lighting conditions

Avoid the uncomfortable mirror like reflections of glossy displays, with our anti-reflection matte display you can view your screen from the position that is most comfortable for you.

Large Multitouch Trackpad

Scroll, click, zoom, scale, all with an easy-to-use multitouch trackpad

First there was a mouse, then came joysticks, eraser-heads, trackballs, now welcome the ultimate interface, the multitouch trackpad.

Perfect Keypress

Build quality starts from the first thing you touch

It’s the little things that matter, especially when you do them a thousand times an hour. Pressing a key that is responsive, easy to press but not too easy, floating high enough to feel just right when you push down. You will enjoy typing on your Librem so much, you may never stop typing, ever.

Super Sturdy Hinge

Designed to last, reinforced metal, mounted directly to the case & screen

We get odd looks getting excited about a hinge. We don’t care! Often overlooked by inadequate laptop makers, our hinge needs to be sturdy for life. Stay shut when shut. Stay put in any of the 130° of screen angle while in use. After you’ve used our hinge, we hope you’ll be as excited as us (odd looks optional).

Purism Key

A powerful key to search your computer and applications

One button to rule them all. Quickly access all your favorite apps and documents from a single key.

Freedom from All Sides

Top, Left, Right, Front, and Rear, it’s hard to go wrong with these profiles

Sleek, slender, stylish, slim, are just a few words to describe the Librem laptop in its beauty (well there is another one).

Your Privacy Is Protected Chip By Chip

Every hardware chip individually selected for being freedom-respecting

All other laptops use hardware chips coupled with software that can betray you. News stories have shown how these chips can surreptitiously transmit voice, networking, picture or video signals. Other chips are used to install spyware, malware or viruses. These built-in vulnerabilities can turn “your” computer into “their” computer. Only by selecting each and every chip in our Librem laptops can we guarantee your privacy, security and freedom are protected.

Aligned Beliefs

We believe what you believe

When you use a Purism computer you know you are operating the best hardware and software that always has your rights to privacy, security, and freedom in mind. We place respecting users’ rights to privacy, security, and freedom above all else.

PureOS

The most rights respecting operating system

Purism PureOS, from the bootloader, kernel, through to the hundreds of thousands of software applications available, is built line-by-line to fully respect your rights to privacy, security, and freedom.

PureBrowser

The most rights respecting browser

PureBrowser makes browsing the web secure, private, and freedom respecting by default. That means the moment you open up PureBrowser you will be protected from nasty web based adversaries. You won’t have to hunt around for the best plugins or add-ons to attempt to secure things yourself — you can rely on us!

Office Software Included

Word Processing, Spreadsheet, Presentation, Drawing, and more

Your Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Access, Visio, and Outlook equivalents that can easily open, edit, save, and export to PDF are all pre-installed. The Purism Office suite that comes installed on Librem laptops protects your freedom and privacy, is completely free and open source, and never sends data to the parent company.

Hundreds of Free Software Applications Available

So many software apps to choose from, all of which protect your rights

There are so many completely free software applications available there is something for everyone. Including popular software applications from categories including Education, Games, Graphics, Internet, Office, Programming, Science, Sound, and Video.

How Can We Make This Change, When Other Companies Have Not?

All other companies, when they sit down at the negotiation table, negotiate first for price, mean time between failure, quality, warranty, availability, then revisit price again. We on the other hand negotiate for users’ rights to free software, then quality, then price. Most manufacturers just need to be made aware that it matters to users, and then we discuss how best to make that happen. This is where you come in, by showing you support Purism, that gives us the leverage we need to push upstream to the manufacturers of component parts. We are here to fight for your rights - please help us do that by supporting this campaign!

Manufacturing Versus Sourcing

Purism is manufacturing the motherboard, and screen printing the keyboard. Purism is sourcing the case, daughter cards, memory, drives, battery, camera, and screen.

Upgradable

As shown in the video above, the HDD/SSD, RAM, wireless chipset, and battery are all accessible after unscrewing the bottom of the case. All these components are easily replaceable or upgradable.

Keyboard

The Librem 15 keyboard comes in a wide variety of language layouts. See the “keyboard” drop-down menu in any of the pledge levels to the right for a full listing of the available languages.

Power Adapter

The Librem 15 laptop comes with the power adapter pictured below. As input, the power adapter takes up to 1.6A at 100-240V and 50-60Hz. As output, the power adapter provides up to 3.4A at 19V. The power adapter plug is available in EU, UK, and US styles and can be easily swapped out by the end user.

Warranty

Every Librem 15 laptop comes with a company-backed, two-year parts and labor warranty. We currently have one warranty facility in South San Francisco, however we are also considering and pursuing distribution and warranty repair within certain other countries.

Alternative Payment

We understand that credit cards aren’t for everyone. If you cannot or do not want to pay by credit card, contact [email protected] to make arrangements for alternative forms of payment. We can accept check, wire transfer, PayPal, and now bitcoin pyaments via manually generated Coinbase USD invoices.

Software Specifications

Bundled with the fully free/libre, no mystery software Trisquel GNU/Linux operating system, with free/libre professional quality web browser, email, graphics, drawing, word processing, presentation, spreadsheet, and media software, users can easily replace their existing computer. Since it is a GNU-based distribution, users can add hundreds of thousands of free/libre and open source applications easily.

Painstakingly selecting every single component that goes into the Librem 15 laptop, Purism ensures they all will operate with free/libre and open source software within the kernel, the operating system, and all software applications.

What About Installing a Different OS?

Since we are using Trisquel GNU/Linux, which is the strictest of distributions and strips all binary blobs from the Linux kernel, you can easily install anything less strict, such as Debian and Ubuntu. We have not yet tried installing a non-GNU/Linux-based operating system.

What About the BIOS and firmware?

Though the bootloader, Linux kernel, GNU OS, and all software applications are completely free/libre software without any binary blobs, the BIOS does use coreboot, which includes a binary from Intel, called FSP. Here is a diagram that summarizes which components are free/libre and which aren’t.

While the BIOS is not yet free, the Librem 15 will be the first laptop ever manufactured to ship a modern Intel CPU fused to run unsigned BIOS code, allowing for a future where free software can replace the proprietary, digitally signed BIOS binaries. This marks one of the largest hurdles to a laptop that runs 100% free software and firmware. Recognizing the importance of this critical step toward consumer freedom, Dr. Richard M. Stallman, president of the Free Software Foundation (FSF), states:

“Getting rid of the signature checking is an important step. While it doesn’t give us free code for the firmware, it means that users will really have control of the firmware once we get free code for it.” - Dr. Richard M. Stallman

In addition to enabling as above the development of free BIOS firmware, we are also working with Intel to allow us to scrub, release, and maintain the source for the FSP, but haven’t finalized that yet. We are devoted to freeing this binary. You can read here about the current state of our efforts to free the BIOS.

There are also hardware components, like the HD or SSD, that are flashable, and therefore upgradeable, but that currently run firmware that is not yet freed. We are working to get freed versions of this firmware! Being the first manufacturer to care about freedom and privacy, we are making a lot of progress upstream.

Librem 13: A Laptop That Respects Your Rights

Stay in touch with the latest news from Purism by following us on Twitter.

Introducing the Librem 13 by Purism, a 13.3” laptop computer, built chip-by-chip to respect and protect your privacy, security, and freedom.

Right now you are vulnerable to adversaries stealing your personal data for their gain. Thieves stealing your identity, credit cards, and banking logins, scammers taking over your email, criminals watching you through your web cam, marketers profiling your personal data from websites, and, ISPs wholesale gathering of all your insecure communication. You can stop them all.

The Librem laptop keeps you safe.

It marries the best software certified by security, privacy, and freedom experts with a slim and beautiful design, including hardware switches to turn off your microphone and camera.

The instant you open your Librem laptop, you are protected.

Purism’s operating system, PureOS is completely Free and Open Source, with the most popular Mac and Windows compatible software preinstalled, including Browser, Email, Graphics, Drawing, Word Processing, Presentation, Spreadsheet, and Media player.

The Purism Librem 13 is the first high-end laptop computer in the world that protects you. Every other consumer-grade laptop you can purchase comes with an operating system that includes suspect, proprietary software, and there’s no way for you to know what that software does.

The reality is that unless every aspect of your kernel, operating system, and software applications are free/libre and open source, there is no way to know that your computer is truly working in your best interest. Purism is the first to solve this problem.

Philosophy

  1. Purism will only use free/libre and open source software in the kernel, OS, and all software.

  2. Purism will design and manufacture hardware that respects users’ rights to privacy, security, and freedom.

  3. Purism will prioritize privacy, security, and freedom for our users.

  4. Purism will not discriminate against persons nor groups nor fields of endeavor.

  5. Purism will source, and manufacture the highest quality hardware.

Purism will donate a portion of proceeds to free software projects on a quarterly basis, according to Purism’s own Free Software for Freedom Margin Share Program.

What Makes the Librem Better?

The Librem 13 ships with PureOS, Purism’s Operating System that leverages the Free Software Foundations certified freedom respecting distribution Trisquel, adding in many security and privacy protecting features, such as Privacy Badger, HTTPS-Everywhere, and strong encryption. Making privacy, security, and freedom installed by default takes the difficulty out of keeping up with best practices for users.

The hardware used in the Librem 13 laptop was specifically selected so that no binary blobs are needed in the kernel that ships with PureOS. All other laptop computers include nasty binary blobs in the kernel.

The Librem 13 is the first concrete step toward changing computer manufacturing in a fundamental way. We believe in users’ rights, and will continue to push upstream to free the lowest level component firmware.

How Can We Make This Change, When Other Companies Have Not?

All other companies, when they sit down at the negotiation table, negotiate first for price, mean time between failure, quality, warranty, availability, then revisit price again. We on the other hand negotiate for users’ rights to free software, privacy, and security, then quality, then price. Most manufacturers just need to be made aware that it matters to users, and then we discuss how best to make that happen. This is where you come in.

Other Models

The Librem 13 is the second in the Librem line of products. The first was the Librem 15, which has already started shipping. If the Librem 13 campaign is successful, our third product will be the Librem Tablet, followed by the Librem Phone.

Warranty

Every Librem 13 laptop comes with a company-backed, two-year parts and labor warranty. We currently have one warranty facility in South San Francisco, however we are also considering and pursuing distribution and warranty repair within certain other countries.

Manufacturing Plan

Purism has the final prototypes, and with your help can begin production at full scale in our South San Francisco facility.

When Will I Get My Laptop?

The first batch will be ready August 2015. This date allows us to finalize our design, manufacture a small run, then order the components, assemble, load the software and ship to you.

Shipping Costs

All laptops include free US domestic shipping. We also ship outside the US anywhere in the world for a flat $80 international shipping surcharge. Any applicable international customs and duties are not included in the price and are the responsibility of the recipient.

About This Crowdfunding Campaign

This is an all-or-nothing scenario - either we make our funding goal and move forward or we miss our funding goal, no credit cards are charged, and the project halts.

Pricing

There are three tiers of pricing available as a special offer only during this crowdfunding campaign - earliest bird, early bird, and retail pricing. The tiers are designed to offer a greater discount to the earliest adopters (earliest bird) so the price and quantity available is the only difference between the tiers: once the tier is filled, the next tier of pricing and quantity is used. These pricing tiers offer a significant discount over the planned retail pricing, which is also available as part of the campaign in case the early tiers fill up completely.

Plans After Successfully Funding

We have very big plans, we believe in free software and our goal is to make free software the default for users. We want average computer users to consider the Librem line an easy alternative to proprietary systems that do not respect their freedoms. After the Librem 13, we want to produce a Librem Tablet, then longer term move into phones, where there are no viable free software alternatives for users.

Sales After the Crowdfunding Campaign Succeeds

Once we have placed our Minimum Order Quantity (MOQ) order, which is what our funding goal is for, we will be offering the Librem 13 for sale, with a standard turnaround to users of about 1 to 2 weeks.

What Happens If the Funding Goal is Not Met?

It will show that there is not enough user support to want a company to fight for freedom, security, and privacy. Therefore, we would not be able to manufacture the Librem 13, and therefore will not receive any funds from any backers. Let’s not make that happen, help us reach our goal, so we can do great things with hardware.

Alternative Payment

We understand that credit cards aren’t for everyone. If you cannot or do not want to pay by credit card, contact [email protected] to make arrangements for alternative forms of payment. Crowd Supply accepts bitcoin payments via manually generated Coinbase USD invoices! Get in touch.

Purism Librem 13 v2 Linux laptop review

At first glance, the Purism Librem 13 v2 looks like a lot of other laptops on the market. It’s a compact notebook that measures about 0.7 inches thick, weighs about 3.3 pounds, and which has a 13.3 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display, a backlit keyboard, and a large touchpad.

But take a closer look at the touchpad and you’ll notice that there’s a rectangle where you’d normally find a Windows key. And glance up to the space above the touchpad and you’ll find two hardware switches.

Those are some of the features that make the Librem 13 really stand out. The missing Windows key is because this laptop ships with a GNU/Linux-based operating system called PureOS instead of Windows. It also uses an open source BIOS alternative called Coreboot. And the hardware switches? They physically disable or enable the webcam, mic, and wireless hardware.

Purism doesn’t just sell laptops. They sell laptops that run free and open source software with an emphasis on privacy and security. Those features carry a premium price tag though: the Librem 13 v2 sells for $1399 and up, which is more than twice what you’d pay for most laptops with similar specs.

But when you consider what Purism is actually trying to do with the Librem 13, there’s not a lot of competition.

So is the Librem 13 any good? Purism loaned me one for a few weeks so I could find out.

Overview

The Librem 13 I tested is configured with 8GB of DDR4 RAM and 250GB of storage, bringing the price for this model to $1578. The entry-level configuration has just 4GB and 128GB, respectively.

Purism chose a core i5-6200U processor for this laptop. It’s a dual-core 6th-gen Intel Core “Skylake” processor, which would seem a little dated now that quad-core 8th-gen Core “Kaby Lake Refresh” chips are on the way. But it’s still a reasonably fast processor with modern features.

If you’re holding out for something newer though, Purism does plan to switch to 7th-gen “Kaby Lake” processors by the end of 2017.

The laptop has a 13.3 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel matte, non-touch display, 802.11n Wifi, a 720p webcam, and stereo speakers.

There’s a USB 3.0 Type-C port, a USB 3.0 Type-A port, and a USB 2.0 Type-A port, as well as an HDMI 2.0 port, SD card reader, and 3.5mm audio jack.

Under the hood, the system features an M.2 slot for solid state storage and a 2.5 inch drive bay for an optional hard drive. The laptop has a 45 Wh battery.

The hardware also features a Bluetooth radio, but as of August, 2017 the Librem 13 doesn’t have the software to support that feature.

It’s not really the hardware that makes this laptop special though. Purism is a Social Purpose Corporation, which means that while the company hopes to make money by selling its products, unlike a non-profit, there are a few other factors that play a large role in Purism’s mission aside from profit maximization.

The most important are that Purism priotities “privacy, security, and freedom for its customers,” “will only use and distribute free/libre and open source software in the kernel, OS and software in its products,” and offers “hardware that respects uses’ rights to privacy, security, and freedom.”

That’s why you’ve got hardware switches to turn off the webcam and Wifi, for example. Theoretically you could enable airplane mode on any computer, or make sure your webcam software isn’t running. But if someone has installed malware on your computer, there’s a chance they could make it look like those features are off when they aren’t.

Purism’s laptops include kill switches that physically sever the circuit to the mic, camera, and wireless components. Flip the switch when using the webcam for instance, and your camera app will keep working, but you won’t see yourself on the screen anymore because it’s as if you’d unplugged the camera in the middle of a video recording.

The respect for privacy extends to the software that ships with the laptop. PureOS is a GNU/Linux distribution featuring the GNOME 3 desktop environment and Wayland graphics. The operating system is free and open source, and it’s based on Debian and should be comfortable to use for anyone that’s used GNOME 3 before.

If you’re coming from Windows or OS X, there’s certainly a bit of a learning curve. But overall the user interface is pretty intuitive and I found it easy to download and install applications from the Software center.

Running third-party software from other sources was kind of a nightmare though. More on that below. But overall I get the feeling that PureOS is a great operating system for beginners who don’t need to run any software that’s not available from the Purism repository or for advanced users who will be better able to troubleshoot the issues I had.

I’d consider myself a casual Linux user. While I’ve never used a GNU/Linux distro as my primary operating system for more than a few days at a time, I’ve played with various distros on and off for more than 10 years. So PureOS didn’t look completely foreign when I first booted the computer, and I was pretty comfortable looking up terminal commands that I hadn’t memorized, I’m not exactly a Linux expert.

It’s also worth noting that some of the things that PureOS doesn’t do out of the box are intentional. If you want a GNU/Linux distribution that makes it easy to stream videos from Netflix you can install Ubuntu or Linux Mint and use the Chrome web browser.

Sure, you can probably find a way to do it with PureOS. But if you’re interested in a computer that ships with free/libre software, then you’re probably not someone who’s looking for ways to stream DRM-protected video.

Design

Purism’s laptop features a black anodized aluminum chassis that gives it a professional look… until you start to notice the fingerprint smudges that will inevitably appear on the cover and palm rest. Keep a cloth handy and you can wipe them away though.

Open the lid and you’re greeted with a matte IPS display which looks good from just about any angle, and which doesn’t reflect much glare. The screen can open to a 130 degree angle, and Purism says the laptop has a reinforced metal hinge.

There’s a webcam and microphone in the bezel above the screen, and a kill switch to disable them below the screen (and above the top row of keys on the keyboard).

The screen is recessed a bit behind the bezels, and there’s something about the laptop that makes me keep forgetting it doesn’t have a touchscreen. I think it’s the fact that the GNOME 3 desktop environment seems so touchable, but reaching up to the screen does no good.

That brings us to the touchpad and keyboard, which are… serviceable, but not great. The backlit keys offer decent travel and the placement of the Fn and arrow keys is pretty straightforward. But I find myself making more typos than I’m used to when using the keyboard. I seem to have a particularly tough time capitalizing letters, so I’m going to blame the shift key.

I do find that the more time I spend using the laptop, the more accurate my typing gets, so it might just be something that takes a bit of getting used to.

Another keyboard quirk that annoyed me was the lack of an indicator to let you know when Caps Lock or Number Lock are enabled. While it’s not usually too difficult to figure that out when you’re typing in LibreOffice Writer, I did find myself struggling to enter a password on the login screen a number of times because I couldn’t figure out if those asterisks showing up on the screen were representing capital or lower case letters.

The touchpad is large, offers a bit of friction, and supports four-finger multitouch gestures. But it’s not the most precise touchpad I’ve ever used, and I generally found the laptop to be easier to use when I plugged in a mouse.

Speaking of connecting additional hardware, I had no problem hooking up an external display, keyboard, and mouse and using the laptop like a dual-display desktop. The second screen was recognized immediately, and after fiddling with the computer’s display settings for a few minutes I was able to mark the external display as the primary monitor and extend the desktop onto the laptop screen.

I was also able to connect to a WiFi printer on my home network almost instantly.

Part of the appeal of buying a laptop that comes with Linux pre-installed is that you don’t need to worry about hardware compatibility… with the laptop’s hardware. So it’s nice to know that common peripherals are also easy to set up.

The laptop is also easy to upgrade. There are 12 screws holding the bottom cover in place, but once you remove them you can open up the case and replace the hard drive or M.2 SSD. Since the version Purism loaned me only has an SSD, the 2.5 inch drive bay is empty, which means adding storage is as simple as popping in a hard drive or SSD.

You’ll also notice that there’s a small fan inside the case. But Purism says one of the laptop’s selling points is its “low noise fan,” and in my time using the notebook, I have to say I’ve barely noticed any fan noise. That said, I’ve gotten used to using an Acer Aspire S 13 over the past year, and that laptop has a super-noisy fan, so most laptops would sound quiet by comparison.

Software

There aren’t all that many companies that offer computers with GNU/Linux-based operating systems, and there are even fewer that develop their own OS rather than just slapping Ubuntu on an existing laptop.

Since the Librem 13 doesn’t come with Windows, you don’t need to go through the trouble of overwriting the operating system and hoping that the WiFi, graphics and other components will work. Purism did the heavy lifting on that front.

If you’re not a fan of paying for software you’re never going to use, then there’s also no “Windows tax,” on this laptop, because none of the money you’re paying goes to Microsoft to pay for a Windows license. That doesn’t mean the laptop is cheaper than a Windows model though… Purism is a relatively small company that doesn’t have the economies of scale that help Lenovo, HP, Dell, Acer, and Asus keep the prices of their Windows laptops relatively low.

But what you do get for your $1399 or more is a fully functional computer with a fully functional operating system… assuming you can figure out how to make it meet your needs. And if you can’t, there’s nothing stopping you from installing Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian, or a different operating system on the laptop.

PureOS comes with just a few applications pre-installed, including LibreOffice, a photo viewer, music and video players, a Maps application, To Do list, and Thunderbird email client.

There’s also a web browser called PureBrowser, which is basically a modified version of Firefox with the HTTPS Everywhere and uBlock Origin add-ons pre-installed.

Purism also plans to launch a secure mail app called PureMail, but it wasn’t ready at the time of this review.

Overall, the list of pre-loaded applications was selected by choosing software that respects users’ privacy. Purism points out that other software available for download are DRM-free and devoid of “spyware, tracking, or ransoming” but I think that helps set PureOS apart from Windows, MacOS, Android, and iOS rather than other GNU/Linux operating systems. I mean, you can find Linux games and programs that include DRM or spyware. But they’re not exactly in the majority.

When I started testing the laptop, PureBrowser was also unable to access some websites including Gmail and YouTube, but I’ve been told that Purism’s developers plan to fix that in an upcoming update.

Personally, I got around the issue by installing Chromium, the open source version of Google’s Chrome browser. Once I’d installed Chromium and the GIMP image editing tool, I found it easy to use the Librem 13 for all-day work sessions. As a tech blogger, that basically means opening two or more browser windows and maybe a dozen or more tabs at a time while researching and writing stories and resizing and cropping images to upload.

I’m always impressed at how quickly GIMP loads on a Linux-based computer. It’s available for Windows and I use it whenever I need something a little more powerful than Irfanview. But GIMP takes forever to load on a Windows computer. It starts almost instantly in PureOS.

GIMP wasn’t installed out of the box, but loading it was as simple as opening the Software center, searching for GIMP, and clicking the install button.

There’s a decent array of software available for installation, including multimedia tools such as Audacity, Ardour, Audacious, and even some music players and editors that don’t start with the letter A. I installed the Cheese camera app because I didn’t see one preloaded. Video tools including Kodi, Kino, and Handbrake are also in the Software center.

Other categories include productivity, communication & news, and graphics & photography. And then there are games.

While there are a handful of impressive, DRM-free, open source games like 0 A.D available for download, the selection of games is a little underwhelming.

So I decided to see if I could get some other Linux-compatible titles to work. First I tried installing the Steam Client for Linux by downloading and running the installer. Everything seemed fine, and there’s even a Steam shortcut on the computer now. but when I try to run Steam I get a message letting me know that I’m missing the LibGL.so.1 32-bit library.

Next I tried just downloading and installing a few games I’d previously purchased via GOG and Humble Bundle. I could only get one to install… and it crashed every time I tried to run it. The others gave me error messages whenever I tried to run the installers.

I don’t know if that’s because these games are designed for Ubuntu rather than PureOS/Debian or if there’s some other obvious thing I’m overlooking. All of the games I tired to install are DRM-free, but none are open source. So honestly, I don’t know if they’re titles that Purism’s customers will care about. But I wanted to see what I could do with this laptop that didn’t involve replacing the operating system, and for the most part the answer is that I can run software that’s maintained specifically for PureOS.

One third-party tool I was able to install was the Phoronix Test Suite, which includes a number of performance benchmarks for Linux computers. Running the whole suite would take a while, but if there are any scores you’d like to see let me know and maybe I’ll run a few tests before I return the laptop.

Again, I’m a Linux lightweight. Odds are that experts will be able to find workarounds for some of the issues I experienced… and free software enthusiasts probably won’t care that much about the fact that Netflix, Amazon Video, Google Play Movies, and Hulu don’t work out of the box.

Performance

After using the Librem 13 on and off for work over the past few weeks, I have to say sometimes it’s easy to forget whether I’m using my Acer laptop with WIndows or Purism’s Linux-powered laptop. That’s partly because the vast majority of my workday is spent in a web browser. But it’s also partly because both are laptops with Skylake chips, 8GB of RAM, and solid state drives.

Performance-wise, they both handle multitasking like a champ, boot and resume from sleep quickly, and have enough horsepower for most of the fairly straightforward tasks I throw at them. And since they can both run Chrome and/or Chromium, I’m pretty comfortable working on either laptop… although I use GIMP a lot more on the Librem 13 because trying to get Irfanview up and running on Linux usually involves installing and configuring WINE so that I can run WIndows applications, which seems like a silly thing to do on a laptop from a corporation focused on software freedom.

Installing Handbrake allowed me to do some video transcoding. Loading 0 A.D. let me lose myself in the real-time strategy game for a few hours. And while I didn’t work very hard to get Netflix to work, I wasted plenty of time watching cat videos (and music videos, and a few tech-related videos) on YouTube.

Basically, aside from the issues I had when trying to install software that wasn’t in the PureOS repository, the Librem 13 functioned like a reasonably good, reasonably modern laptop. And the kill switches worked exactly as described: toggle the camera switch and it’s as if you’ve unplugged the webcam. It won’t be recognized by any software until you flip the switch back to the other direction (and you may need to restart your photo or video app while you’re at it. The wireless switch also quickly disconnects you from WiFi.

Unfortunately while Purism claims that the laptop should get 7 to 9 hours of battery life, in my experience 4 to 6 was much more common. You may be able to do better, depending on what you use the notebook for.

Verdict

If you’re looking for a compact laptop that runs GNU/Linux software, there are a handful of alternatives, including computers from ZaReason, System76, and Dell. But Purism takes things a step further by shipping its laptops with Coreboot and focusing on hardware and software that emphasizes privacy.

Overall, it’s nice to have the option of buying a laptop that comes with a GNU/Linux distro and Coreboot and doesn’t require a lot of work to set up. But I suspect this laptop will still be a better fit for experienced Linux users than for long-time Windows or Mac users, since you might need to dig into the settings or fire up a terminal window to get some things done.

The hardware kill switches also help balance convenience with security: you have a webcam when you need it. But you can disable it whenever you don’t.

In that sense, this laptop doesn’t really have much competition (unless you consider a piece of tape to be competition). But the high starting price, the mediocre battery life, and the finnicky mouse and keyboard make it a little tough to recommend.

If the laptop were half the price, I could probably overlook some of those hardware issues. But if you’re going to charge $1399 for a notebook at a time when you can find laptops with similar (or better) specs for $700 or less, it’s hard to justify spending that kind of money on a model that has less-than-stellar hardware.

That said, it’d be tough for a small company like Purism to match Acer, Asus, or Dell on price. If you value privacy and software freedom over all else, then the Librem 13 v2 might be worth your money… especially if you want to support one of the few organizations working to deliver laptops that fit that description.

And it’s not that the keyboard and touchpad are horrible. They just aren’t really as good as I’d like them to be. Purism also notes that the current touchpad is an upgrade over the version used in previous laptops, so at least there’s that.
