"This is a beautiful laptop ... priced competitively ... a lot of attention to detail"
"I’ve never seen anything quite as powerful out of the box as the Kubuntu Focus"
Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols
The Kubuntu Focus is a high-powered, workflow-focused laptop which ships with Kubuntu installed. It is meticulously tuned to take full advantage of the hardware and provide enterprise-grade security, performance, and reliability.
The Focus sets the gold standard for out-of-the box usability. As shown in the video, we carefully select, test, and document the end-to-end solutions you need so you can be productive within minutes of opening the box.
The Focus maintains the platform so you can work and play. Get right to work because we research and install all the software needed to get the job done. Consider how our entire Pro Photography workflow has been expertly vetted. Read your files from your SD card without looking around for drivers. Enjoy the seamless integration between apps. Watch how EXIF data is preserved from end-to-end. We apply the same level of dedication to all our workflows. And we keep adding workflows.
The Focus values your time and preserves your hard work.
Change files with confidence because the Back-In-Time recovery system
is configured for each user added to the system. By default it takes
snapshots hourly. Roll back with a simple point and click.
rm command is also remapped to trash to help
avoid unintended data loss.
The Focus minimize eye strain with the Breeze-Dark theme. Many stubborn apps such as Audacity, Chrome, Firefox, GVim, Kate, Konsole, LibreOffice, Partion manger, and Meld have been adjusted to ensure they fit this theme. Of course, one can always switch the theme at any time using the system settings.
See the Specs page for more details on hardware and optimizations. Our goal is to pleasantly surprise and delight you with power, usability, and attention to detail.
The Focus can save you hundreds of hours research, installation, and configuration regardless of your preferred OS. It is delivered with all updates applied and libraries installed for all workflows. Reliability and performance are of utmost importance.
The Focus save thousands over a similarly configured Mac, yet the Focus has at least twice the GPU performance. It also compares favorably with W10 high-spec PC laptop brands. And its ready to use and ready for the cloud:
- The Kubuntu 18.04.4 LTS OS uses the same core as the industry dominant Cloud OS, Ubuntu Server. Add the fast, stable, and familiar KDE desktop and you're cloud, development, and deep-learning ready seconds after boot.
- The meticulously tuned apps and OS ensure everything works seamlessly. Days were spent researching and thoroughly answering questions like "what kernel performs best?", "what is the best screen capture application?", "what compositor is the most stable and fastest?", and "how can we minimize interruptions and extend battery life?".
- Outstanding support and execution enables us to build to your and ship your laptop within 24 hours of your order. Real people help solve issues within minutes over the phone or through video conferencing or screen sharing.
- Fully tested apps and workflows you need are ready to-use out-of-the-box. Examples include include Cloud Development, GPU-accelerated Deep Learning (AI), Gaming, Pro Photography, Video Editing, Web App Development and many more. There's no hunting around either - the apps launch directly from icons found directly on our support pages.
- The very powerful hardware beats most desktops. The 6c/12t CPU boosts to 4.5GHz, the Samsung NVMe drive is one of the fastest available today; the RAM is 2666MHz dual channel, and the GPU is the class-leading, powerful and efficient deep-learning-ready RTX 2060, 2070 or 2080.
