I see on the products page that the battery life for the Librem 13 is still 7-9 hours, despite the upgrade to an i7. Is that still the expected battery life? (though obviously it will depend on usage)
And the Librem 15 now has a maximum of 16GB RAM. Is that right? Is it getting reduced from the 32GB that was listed before?
For the battery estimates: yeah those have not been updated and tested (there’s usually a difference between what suppliers say and what we see in practice), I would personally (but please don’t take this as a formal promise/guarantee at this point) expect the battery life to be better than what’s listed. With my type of usage, I was able to do 10-12 hours on an older Librem 15, so…
For the Librem 15’s RAM capacity: indeed, there was unfortunately not enough demand to make this option (a 2nd RAM slot) viable currently. The costs involved are in the six-digits (if I recall correctly) and were not compensated by the additional RAM sales so far. We also didn’t want to introduce any further delays stemming from this particular feature.
Thanks for the quick reply! A shame to hear about the reduced RAM, but I certainly can’t blame you guys for the decision.
