With our anti-reflection matte IPS display you can view your screen from the position that is most comfortable for you, avoiding the uncomfortable mirror-like reflections of glossy displays.

Large Multitouch Trackpad

Backlit Keyboard, Perfect Keypress

Build quality starts from the first thing you touch. You will enjoy typing on your Librem so much, you may never stop typing. The Librem 13 offers a full-sized keyboard, with easy to press keys—but not too easy—floating high enough to feel “just right” when you push down.

Freedom 360°

Your Privacy Is Protected Chip By Chip

Every hardware chip individually selected with emphasis on freedom-respecting

Purism Librem 13 Exploded View

All other laptops use hardware chips coupled with software that can betray you. News stories have shown how these chips can surreptitiously transmit voice, networking, picture or video signals. Other chips are used to install spyware, malware or viruses. These built-in vulnerabilities can turn “your” computer into “their” computer. Purism works with hardware component suppliers and the Free software community towards making hardware that respects your privacy and protects your security.

Comes with the most rights-respecting operating system

PureOS, from the bootloader, kernel, through to the hundreds of thousands of software applications available, is built line-by-line with emphasis on your rights to privacy, security, and freedom.

Aligned Beliefs—We believe what you believe

When you use a Purism computer you know you are operating the best hardware and software, while keeping your rights to privacy, security, and freedom in mind. We place respecting users’ rights to privacy, security, and freedom above all else.
