    If you're not a fan of Windows 10 or Apple's decision to transition to ARM-based laptops has you less than excited, then you may want to consider Purism's new Librem 14 security-focused Linux laptop.

     

    Purism is a company set up to produce "freedom respecting, privacy protecting, and security focused products," and its latest product to deliver on that promise is the Librem 14 laptop. Launched this week, the Librem 14 builds on the previous success of the Librem 13 by using a 14-inch 1080p IPS panel, but managing to fit it into the same footprint of the Librem 13 chassis thanks to smaller bezels.

    The Librem 14 base configuration includes a six-core (12 threads) Intel Core i7-10710U, 8GB of RAM, and a 250GB SATA M.2 SSD. It runs PureOS, a version of Linux focused on keeping you and your information secure via sandboxed apps, HTTPS everywhere, ad blocking and tracking protection by default, plus free and open-source software. In terms of connectivity, there are USB 3.1 Type A and USB 3.1 Type-C ports, HDMI, gigabit Ethernet, 3.5mm audio jack, and a memory card reader.
