Computers That Do Not Track You

Every hardware component we use, every line of code in the software, everything we do, is done with our belief in respecting your rights to privacy, security, and freedom.

The Librem are the first high-end laptops where you are in control and have complete visibility into the kernel, the operating system, and all software. 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.

Typical 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. Only by selecting each and every chip in our Librem laptops can we guarantee your privacy, security and freedom are protected.

Librem Multitouch Trackpad and aluminium chassis

Great hardware, made to last.

Purism is manufacturing the motherboard, and screen printing the keyboard. Purism is sourcing the case, daughter cards, memory, drives, battery, camera, and screen (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.

Backed by a two year warranty, by default.

See the policies page for our warranty, returns & refunds policy.
