System76 Announces Return Of Oryx Pro Linux Laptop With A Crucial Upgrade

Filed under

Gadgets

The Oryx Pro was the first dedicated Linux laptop I owned since switching my desktop computing experience to the FOSS side of the fence, and it’s been inspiring to watch it evolve throughout the last 3 years. It’s transformed from a chunky, generic chassis to a sleeker powerhouse with a fantastic keyboard, smarter port layout, and System76’s lauded Open Firmware with Coreboot. But thanks to the ongoing chip shortage, it’s been tough to snag the current generation Oryx Pro.

Fortunately, there’s good news on two fronts: The Oryx Pro just got updated to Intel’s 11th-generation Core i7-11800H — which packs a noticeable performance and power efficiency boost — and it’s actually available to purchase right now. (Provided you have about $2,149 to spare, which is the laptops base price.)

System76 readies high-end Oryx Pro Linux laptops with Tiger Lake

  • System76 readies high-end Oryx Pro Linux laptops with Tiger Lake-H processor and Nvidia RTX dGPU options

    System76 is introducing its first high-end Linux-based customizable laptop dubbed the Oryx Pro. This model packs powerful components in a relatively slim case (238-265 mm profile) and offers the signature open source firmware with GPLv3 license code that grants users total control over the iGPU, GPU, keyboard, cooling system and battery.

    The Oryx Pro is powered by the Intel Core i7-11800H 8-core / 16-thread processor with integrated 32 EU UHD Xe graphics, which can be coupled with up to 64 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM plus up to 4 TB of NVMe PCIe 4.0 SSD storage via two M.2 slots. Users can opt for a15.6-inch or 17.3-inch display with FHD resolution, 144 Hz refresh rate and matte coating. There is also a choice between the Nvidia RTX 3070 and 3080 dGPUs. System76 mentions that these are the Max-Q versions, but does not specify the exact wattage, unfortunately. Nevertheless, there is a MUX switch, so the dGPU can be exploited to its full capacity. As far as the operating system is concerned, users can choose among the proprietary Pop!_OS 21.04 or 20.04 versions and the Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. Accessories include an external DVD-RW drive, mechanical switches for the keyboard (shipping in November), plus carrying bags for each size.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
