What computer do you want QubesOS to work on?

Due to how picky QubesOS seems to be with what computers it is compatible with and to what degree, I thought I’d start this thread where we can share what we would like the distro to be able to work with.

Just describe the name of your machine, whether it is a laptop or desktop
along with your desired specs.


I’ll start off…

My preferred laptop would be something from System76
I’m looking to buy a high-end BonoboWS for mobile productivity with an Intel i9-10900K (the best CPU available, as of now) and NVIDIA RTX 2080; as well as a Lemur Pro, for if I need to use the internet on the go, with an Intel i7-1165G7. Both laptops use Coreboot and have Intel ME disabled or removed.

I think the same. I need 17" monitor so Librem is out of scope. One question is thou is anyone know how bright the screen is in System76? I need to work outdoors and need bright display. Currently I have Acer Aspire Nitro V which has 350 cd/m2 and I am looking for something at least that bright.

as well as a Lemur Pro, for if I need to use the internet on the go, with an Intel i7-1165G7.

Seconded. I tried to install on a Lemur Pro - it’s a no go so far. I suspect it’s an issue with the 11th-gen processor; I’m still waiting to see if anyone here has any insight.

But I’ve heard reports that the 4.1-alpha release does work on 10th-gen processors (or at least, installs – no guarantees about other issues, especially with an NVIDIA card).

Purism developed Librem 14 in the same form-factor as earlier Librem 13. I believe that they will soon present Librem 16 as an upgrade of Librem 15. It probably won’t be 17" but 16" though. I’m waiting for it.
