I just submitted a HCL report for my Librem 14 you can hop over the the HCL section in the forum to have a look.
Short version: best qubes laptop I’ve had.
Only had it for a few weeks but it has at least survived a vibration test of travelling 80 kilometers in a bicycle wagon =)
Comparing a 10th gen Intel with 40Gb ram and my old Lenovo t430s (third generation intel) is a little bit unfair.
Old one had a Good SSD and 16GB ram.
Safe the librem is a LOT faster.
5x faster bootup time, near instant VM clones and generally everything just feels great to work with.
I’ve been compiling software and generally doing some intensive stuff.
Burning though CPU cycles quite heavily and when you max out 6 cores with their 12 threads the fan noise is quite high pitched.
The first day I had it it was truly annoying but the thermal paste or something started to meld properly so unless I completely max it out the noise is now normal for a laptop.
If you run a normal desktop OS you get 6-10 hours out of the librem 14 mixed use.
As with all laptop running qubes, it generally brings the battery life down to around quarter of a normal OS.
Normal Usage like surfing the web ~5VMs
around 3-4 hours
15+ VMs, IDEs, dev work, docker containers. 3 browsers for different contexts, compiling software etc.
The above gives me around 1.5hours.
Security does come with its drawbacks.
