The Wait Is Nearly Over

Buy Me A Coffee

In March, this year, I ordered a 14" StarBook MK. V laptop from Star Labs. Delivery has been delayed numerous times, mostly as a consequence of China imposing COVID-19 lockdown. But, at long last, it looks like my new laptop—upgraded to the StarBook MK. VI—lands in the UK in the upcoming weeks.

StarBook MK. V

I'm excited about this laptop. There are few reviews, and none on the MK. VI, so I've taken a leap of faith with this custom-built Linux laptop from the UK-based company, Star Labs. But I have confidence in this bunch of geeks! They are passionate about what they do, pay attention to detail, and listen to feedback.

This is what I've ordered:

  • Intel® Core® 12th generation i7 processor
  • 16 GB 3200 MHz memory
  • 960 GB over-provisioned SSD
  • 1920×1080 Full-HD Resolution full matte display
  • coreboot open-source firmware
  • StarPort 12-port USB-C PD Hub

When the laptop lands, I'll prepare a review with some photos, and maybe a video, so stayed tuned, and sign-up if you want to be the first to learn about the new Star Labs StarBook MK. VI.
