Are all the parts soldered to the motherboard?

In many modern laptops, especially thin and light models (like Apple’s MacBook Air or Pro, Dell’s XPS 13, or many of Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 Carbon models), the memory, storage, battery, and wireless module are often soldered directly onto the motherboard. This is done to save space and allow the laptop to be thinner, but it means that the RAM and SSD are not user-upgradeable.

However, as part of our commitment to the Right to Repair Movement, the memory, storage, battery, and wireless module all MALIBAL laptops are user-upgradeable or user-replaceable.

Is the firmware on your laptops open source?

Yes, the UEFI / EC firmware on our laptops is open-source and licensed under the GPL.

Can your laptops be charged or powered via USB-C?

USB-C is revolutionizing the way we charge laptops. As a universal charging standard, USB-C has a number of advantages that make it particularly suited for this task.

First and foremost, it offers high power delivery capability – up to 100 watts – which is sufficient to charge even power-hungry laptops. This eliminates the need for proprietary laptop chargers and allows for charging via common adapters, power banks, or even other laptops.

Additionally, USB-C is a reversible connector, meaning it can be inserted either way, making it more user-friendly.

It also supports data transfer and display output, allowing for a single cable to provide power, transfer data, and connect to external monitors.

All MALIBAL laptops can be powered via the Thunderbolt 4 port.
