SEPIO Laptop Details

As many of you know, I have been working on a secure laptop project for the last three years. As all of us increasingly rely on our personal computers for everything from shopping to communication to news and information, it became clear to me that there needed to be a safer option than Windows and Mac, yet still be simple and easy to use. I give you the first version of the SEPIO privacy conscious computer.

Currently I am offering it in 15.6 inch and 13.3 inch versions. The hardware may vary slightly due to availability, but will all be of comparable speed and quality.

Current specs on both models:

- i5-6200U CPU (or comparable AMD cpu)
- 8GB DDR3 RAM
- 500GB hard drive
- 1920x1080 screen (15.6" model), 1366x768 (13.3" model)
- Touchscreen

The RAM can be upgraded to 16GB on request and the HD can be upgraded to a fast 1TB 7200rpm or SSD as well.

The operating system:

- SEPIO OS with Grsecurity/Pax hardened kernel
- Locked BIOS, hard drive and bootloader
- Full disk encryption with AES-256-XTS
- Sandboxing of programs
- Custom firewall
- Built in VPN, TOR, Zeronet and I2P
- Virtual TOR router and workstation
- Software defined radio suite
- Hardened browser and mail client
- Extensive security tools suite
- Crypto wallets (Cloakcoin, Bitcoin, Dashpay, Ethereum, Shadowcash)
- and much more...

Essentially, this is the computer I wanted for myself.

It comes with an RF blocking travel case and cover for the webcam.

Until I get the store page updated, you may order simply by emailing me with your desired model and any customizations you want.

Cost is $950 and $35 for shipping (ask if you need special shipping).
Like my other devices, it is shipped in a locked state and sealed in tamper evident RF blocking container.

In all fairness, most people don't know how to use Linux. Unless this is some type of Unix fork, not sure. Also, most people don't know dog crap about IT security. Securing a VPN and encrypting your HD are some of the best things you can do. Locked BIOS and Bootloader sounds like a nightmare if the HD ever went bad.

"Not knowing" is a fixable problem. Learning to use Linux and to set-up and maintain internet privacy are learnable skills. The SepioOS is built on a Debian platform.  Having had several HD failures, I am a fan of solid state drives. A Crucial 1TB SSD adds $250 to the Sepio price (1/2 of what Apple charges in their laptops). Upgrading from the i5 to the i7 processor is $150 (again a fraction of that upgrade in the MacBook Pro).

To my thinking "securing" a VPN means not making "cyberspace" or "meatspace" mistakes.

I have recommended the GroundRod Primer and GroundRod 2 classes for the uninitiated to get started properly in obtaining and hardening one's privacy. Expectedly, privacy has an inverse relationship to convenience, but I have not found any of the prudent steps to be anything I would call inconvenient. A classroom bonus—attendees build a thumb drive with a hardened Tails OS and some basic privacy tools, bootable on Windows and MacOS machines.
