    Dreaming is free: the System76 laptop of your dreams

    We all love our System76 laptops (I do for one). Really happy with it so far (gazp6). But hey, dreaming is free and I always find myself thinking of one or two things I would change if I were to buy another System76 laptop. I need a lighter/smaller one for travelling and the Lemur ultra seems perfect for that. Here is my dream:

    Lemur ultra series wishlist:

    - High resolution 14.1'' screen (1440x900+)
    - Chiclet keyboard.
    - More compact carcass, but that is my personal preference.

    These 3 items and the Lemur would be 'a dream come true'

    How about you people? What would you add/take from Sys76 laptops?

    I'm on completely the opposite end of the spectrum...battery life and weight are completely irrelevant, but I want ridiculous power in a laptop case. I'm waiting for the Bonobo:

    - 17" HD screen
    - Space for multiple internal hard drives
    - High-end discrete graphics card
    - Firewire port

    I'll be ordering this beast the minute it goes live on the S76 website

    I'm with you.

    I must have bought the last one because it disappeared off the web site very soon after I bought mine. Sorry about that, Penguissimo.

    The only thing missing that I wanted was BluRay support. Maybe for my next one ...

    Re: Dreaming is free: the System76 laptop of your dreams

    When I bought my Pangolin P5 back in 2009, the Pangolin line was about perfect for me. My Pangolin doesn't need replacement quite yet, but I hope to buy a new laptop within a year or so, and I've been keeping an eye on the System76 laptop lineup. I was rather disappointed to see the Pangolin line go from a dedicated GPU to integrated graphics. (In fact, the entire System76 laptop lineup at the moment seems to use integrated graphics). I'd really like to see a mid-range laptop with dedicated graphics return to the System76 lineup.

    Mid-range and dedicated graphics are no longer mutually inclusive goals. The integrated graphics just provide more bang than any mid-range discreet mobile cards available right now, for a much better price. If you want to do heavy gaming, you're going to want to go for high-end graphics anyway, and if you're not, then integrated graphics provide ample performance for just about everything else.

    I would buy the Lemur right now if it had a 1600x900 matte screen upgrade.

    Other than that:
    4 lbs or lighter
    12.5-13.3" screen
    No optical drive (or second hard drive option in optical bay)
    4.5-6 hours battery life

    It's pretty hard to make a case that fits a 14.1 inch screen that's a lot smaller than the one we already use on the Lemur. Thinner, maybe, but not generally smaller.

    My list would be almost exactly the same! Actually, those first two (mostly the screen) are what have me currently undecided between the Lemur Ultra and the Gazelle Pro. Instead of more compact, I'd prioritize longer battery life (going off of the 3 - 4 hour estimates people have given - closer to 6 hours would be great) and a lighter weight (4 lbs or slightly under would be amazing).
