Laptop: Spitfire Manjaro Special Edition

OK, community – we have now worked on this for months, and the results are simply astounding. In association with Station X the Manjaro Team is very proud to announce our first Laptop, together with a hardware manufacturer especially designed for our beloved community.

If you’re looking for the sleekest Linux laptop in existence, then look no further. The Spitfire is a head turner – with lots and lots of muscle. Powered with 7th Generation Intel Core Processors, up to 32GB RAM and dual drive bays, the Spitfire can take whatever you can throw at it. And keep going.

With a super-light all-aluminum chassis, and a killer 1080p IPS display, the Spitfire can run Manjaro at blazing speed.

The Spitfire model has undergone some serious surgery to become the ultimate marriage of hardware and software. We, the Manjaro team have created a very special edition of our flagship XFCE distribution fully tuned to the Spitfire. From intricate kernel tweaks, to streamlined settings, and even custom changes to battery, cpu, and even sound settings – the Spitfire has now become the ultimate Manjaro Machine.

And it will look the part as well – with a diamond-laser etched Manjaro logo on the lid and fully custom designed XFCE themes, wallpapers, and icons designed specially for Station X by the Manjaro Team.
