HP Dev One Laptop with Pop! _OS Linux now available for $1099

The HP Dev One is a laptop designed for professional developers. The 3.24-pound laptop features a 14-inch Full HD display, a spill-resistant backlit keyboard with a center pointing stick, and a glass-covered trackpad underneath and an AMD Ryzen 7 Pro 5850U processor.

But the main thing that marks this as a developer-centric laptop (other than the name)? It comes with a Linux distribution called Pop!_OS rather than Windows. First announced in May, the HP Dev One is available now for $1099.

Pop!_OS is an Ubuntu-based operating system designed by the folks at System76 for their own laptops, but it’s also an open-source operating system that can be downloaded and installed by anyone on hardware. compatible.

HP is the first company other than System76 to preload the operating system on a computer, and System76 trained HP’s technical support team so that the company could offer customer support for the software.

Pop!_OS has a custom UI that emphasizes multitasking and window management, among other things, which could be useful for developers who often have multiple windows open at once.

For a laptop aimed at developers, it would be nice if HP offered a newer processor (so the Ryzen 7 Pro 5850U is 2021), a USB 4 port or two, or the ability to configure the laptop with more than 16 GB of RAM and 1TB of storage… but at least you can probably do something about the memory and storage limitations. Both are user upgradable.

Here is an overview of the main specifications of the computer:
