It also features a Thunderbolt 4 port with Power Delivery, Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.3, a multitouch clickpad, a backlit US QWERTY keyboard, a 2.0MP FullHD webcam and a microSD card reader.

Connectivity-wise, the Linux-powered notebook features a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C port with Power Delivery, a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A port, a USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A port, an HDMI port, and a 3.5mm headphone/microphone combo audio jack.

The new System76 Lemur Pro laptop is available for purchase right now from $1,399 USD here. System76 also plans to update the rest of its line of ultraportable laptops in the coming months with Intel Core Ultra (Series 1) processors, including the Darter Pro featuring Intel Core Ultra H-class processing, Arc graphics, and a new design.
