Galago_Pro_backToday Denver-based System76 allowed for preorder of the new Galago Pro. The Galago Pro is a 13” aluminum-body laptop, weighing in at 2.87lbs (1.3kg). The new laptop is very thin, but despite its size sports up to 32GB of RAM, 6TB of storage, and a 7 th Gen Intel i5 or i7 CPU. On top of that, the Galago Pro has many ports missing from modern ultra-thin laptops, such as an ethernet port. The starting price is $899.

“Our customers have been asking for this for a while, and we’re happy to finally allow them to purchase the Galago Pro. When other companies are shipping with last gen processors and 16GB or RAM or less, we are giving our customers more power. Best part is that it’s all housed in a beautiful, thin design.” – Ryan Sipes, Community Manager at System76.
