    Did you look at System76's laptop offerings? I don't know if they have the exact model you're looking for, but do have a number of different Clevo models with their own BIOS and what not that better support Linux.

    I see that they sell the same clevo p950ep6 and pa71ep6-g rebranded as System76. Living in Italy i need a local clevo reseller. System76 personalize software or also hardware? I can afterwards install Pop Os.

    Please contact System76 to verify, but my understanding is they have their own slightly altered BIOS to help control things under Linux. I don't have any vested interest in them, and am passing on what I recall, but as previously stated, contact them for further details.

    System 76 uses the Clevo chassis, yes. But that's about it. It's not just a simple rebranding. They customize everything from ground-up, including, bios and firmware, and they provide you with self-programmed driver packages to ensure that every single bit of hardware works out of the box. They offer full disk encryption if you chose Pop OS as the OS to be pre-installed. The products are pricey, and you will pay a premium for importing them to EU, but what you get is a rock-solid GNU/Linux environment that is reliable as hell. If you want the same chassis as their Serval WS, please look at Tuxedo Computers. They provide everything that System 76 does with firmware and drivers, use more or less the same chassis, and provide you the option of selecting a few more distros via Webfui.
