HP Dev One Review
An awesome Developer-focused laptop, with what’s arguably considered the most consumer ready Linux distro – Pop!_OS pre-installed. For everyone else who aren’t tied to any commerical software package that requires Windows or MacOS, this is a compelling alternative to the norm.
- Great hardware for PopOS to shine on
- Vibrant OLED Display
None as of review
Lo and behold, when one of the worlds biggest computer manufacturers decides to co-sign a scrappy but formidable newcomer by releasing a laptop with their Linux Distro pre-installed – people like me tend to sit up and take notice. And that’s exactly what we have here with the HP Dev One, a laptop running Pop!_OS by System76.
What is Pop!_OS ?
Pop!_OS, is a Linux distro by OEM System76. System76 is the company that develops and maintains Pop!_OS and they also manufacturer their own laptops, desktops and servers.
Design and Build Quality
The design is up to par with many Ultrabooks that have a metal build, holding its own against Apple, Dell, and even HP’s premium offering.
