I took a look at the 13-inch model, Librem 13. It does not even have a Kensington slot, given its expensive price tag. How secure is that? Rolling Eyes

The story to get the 4K panel is full of ups, downs, twists, and turns. When we learned from one of our suppliers that we could get Samsung 4K panels in our Librem 15, we jumped at the opportunity. We prepaid for the panels, moved the Librem 15 line from 2K (1920×1080) to 4K (3840×2160)


love those resolution!!!

Laptops targeted at the education sector would definitely have such a security feature so that students can lock them up in the libraries or dorm rooms. Business laptops, such as IBM/Lenovo ThinkPad, have had such a feature since the beginning of time.

For me, the lack of a Kensington slot is a deal-breaker. Period.

Yes, I do. But that is not the point. The point is the presence of a Kensington slot provides a basic security feature to the user.

Even if the laptop has a thick steel ring at the corner for the user to apply a padlock, it can still be hacked EASILY. Take a look at the following video:

I understand your pain. Although the lack of locking capability is not a deal breaker for me. Instead it is the lack of standard battery size that is a deal breaker for me. That means users will have to be reliant upon the continued availability of custom battery size from a small company. The company also stated they will not ship batteries outside of the origin country. So even if the company is still making that battery pack for old laptops (unlikely) they won't ship it to you if you live too far away from them.

I find it sad that battery technology can still only give us two to three years maximum usable life for a rechargeable battery. Sad

And I do not think it is gonna change soon. Non replaceable, short life batteries will stay standard for years to come.

The notebook I have here lasted about 2 years, with decreasing maximum capacity until zero.

A deal breaker if you use your notebook in the "wild", I cannot do it in my country because I would have to buy a new notebook every week. And I do not have that much money.

It is time for you to replace your 2003 laptop ... unless you really want to break some Guinness world records!

Take a look at these top-of-the-line models:

Lenovo ThinkPad P50 & P70
http://www.mobiletechreview.com/notebooks/Lenovo-ThinkPad-P50-ThinkPad-P70.htm

Buy the laptop with a couple of spare batteries. Then you are set for the coming decade.

But why would I want to replace when it works fine? Question

Also, buying spare batteries when one purchases a laptop is not a good plan if the intention is to still use them for ten years. One still needs to purchase fresh batteries when they are needed. Any old batteries, even if unused, won't be good after a few years.
