“Today most tablets run operating systems that limit personal freedom and are designed to be as intrusive as possible.”

Like most of Purism’s devices, the Librem 11 tablet PC promises users the best security, privacy, and freedom-respecting features including a secure boot with Purism’s PureBoot cutting-edge secure boot process based on the Coreboot and Heads projects.

Librem 11 also promises real convergence with Purism’s PureOS security-focused operating system based on Debian GNU/Linux, so you can turn the tablet into a full-featured computer when connected to a monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
