In using the latest from Intel, processor-hungry applications finish at lightning speed.

Anodized Aluminium Chassis

Thin, light, and strong

Matte Display

Enjoy your screen in all lighting conditions

Librem Matte Screen

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

First, there was the mouse. Then came joysticks, eraser-heads, trackballs…now welcome the ultimate interface: the multitouch trackpad.


Perfect Keypress

Build quality starts from the first thing you touch

Librem 13 Keyboard

You will enjoy typing on your Librem so much, you may never stop typing. The Librem 13 offers easy to press keys, but not too easy, floating high enough to feel just right when you push down.


Super Sturdy Hinge

Designed to last, reinforced metal, mounted directly to the case and screen

Librem Hinge

We get excited about hinges. Often overlooked by inadequate laptop makers, our hinge is built to be sturdy for life, staying shut when shut, and staying put in any of the 130° of screen angle while in use.


Purism Key

A powerful key to search your computer and applications

Purism Key

One button to rule them all. Quickly access all your favorite apps and documents from a single key.


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 manufactures and Free software community towards making hardware that respects your privacy and protects your security.


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.
