15.6″ 4K Matte Display

Enjoy your screen in all lighting conditions

Librem Matte Screen

With our anti-reflection matte display you can view your screen without the uncomfortable mirror-like reflections of glossy displays. The Librem 15 now offers a 4K display! With the 15.6 inch screen now supporting a higher resolution (3840 x 2160), there will be more pixels per inch (PPI). More pixels per inch translate to a sharper display. Better for both work and play.

Large Multitouch Trackpad

Scroll, click, zoom, scale, all with an easy-to-use multitouch trackpad

First, there was the mouse. Then came joysticks, eraser-heads, trackballs… now welcome the ultimate interface: the multitouch trackpad, with gestures natively supported under PureOS.

Backlit Keyboard, Perfect Keypresses

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 15 offers a full-sized keyboard including numeric keypad, with easy to press keys—but not too easy—floating high enough to feel “just right” when you push down. Enjoy typing day and night with the backlit keys with two levels of intensity.

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

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

Sleek, slender, stylish, slim, are just a few words to describe the Librem laptops.

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
