As per tech specs, Librem 14 is a beast. It is loaded with Intel Core i7-10710U CPU with 6 cores and 12 threads and combined with a maximum of 32 GB DDR4 RAM.
Intel UHF graphics is available with a very high-performance battery which should give you backup between 7 to 9 hours tops per charge. Very helpful in my opinion.
The Laptop comes with 2.5inch SATA with NVMe capable M.2 slots for SSD storage.
Additional details include 2 USB Type-A 3.1 ports, 1 USB Type-C 3.1 port, one HDMI port that can run 4K at 60 Hz, a headphone jack, and a Gigabit Ethernet adapter with integrated RJ45 connector.
