Security for everyone

The Librem are the first high-end laptops where you are in control and have complete visibility into the operating system, all bundled software, and the deeper levels of your computer.

Typical laptops use hardware chips coupled with software that can betray you (including tracking you without your consent). 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.1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

Only by selecting each and every chip in our Librem laptops can we guarantee your privacy, security and freedom are protected. Intrigued? Continue further down below to learn more.

Great hardware, made to last.

Purism is manufacturing key components of the hardware and sourcing the remaining components in a way that increases your security, privacy, and freedom (read more about our sourcing and manufacturing). Our computers are made to be user-serviceable and upgradable: you can open up the internals of your Purism Librem computer simply by unscrewing the bottom of the case. The HDD/SSD, RAM, wireless chipset, and battery are all accessible, and you can replace or upgrade any of these components.

Most vendors make you pay extra to get a warranty for more than 90 days. We back our laptops with a one year warranty by default, and you have option to upgrade to a three years warranty. See the policies page for our warranty, returns & refunds policy.

A pure system

Meticulously designed chip by chip to work with free/libre and open source software, the Librem reinstates your rights to freedom and privacy. We hand selected the best hardware that still honors our strict beliefs as a Social Purpose Corporation. Our machines are offered with our easy-to-use PureOS for your convenience, while compatible with modern Free operating systems (including those with strict “drivers freedom requirements”, and those aimed at security experts, such as Qubes OS).

Say goodbye to proprietary BIOSes, say hello to coreboot.

Purism laptops are the only independently-made, brand new, high-performance laptops on the market specifically meant to pair recent technologies with our coreboot port and the potential to have a neutralized Intel Management Engine. This can be applied as a software update for the existing Librem 13 v1 (porting to other existing models is ongoing), and this will also be available factory-installed starting Q3 2017 (models shipped before will get coreboot as a software update).

Cutting-edge apps, and the future of graphics… Today.

Librems preloaded with PureOS feature the latest and greatest technologies, including GNOME 3 and the next-generation Wayland display protocol, out of the box. Thanks to this forward-thinking graphics subsystem, you can now enjoy fluid high-framerate videos without tearing, benefit from enhanced security through isolation between graphical software applications, frame-perfect hardware-accelerated animations and UI components rendering, and better power management.
