Thelio's new look

We’ve slimmed down Thelio’s wood wrapping into a swappable accent on the front of the system. Style your Thelio with a variety of wood or powder-coated aluminum accents to empower any mindset.

Which accent would you choose? And what is your alter ego? #MeAndMyAlterEgo

Swappable accent colors

Since its debut, Thelio’s identity has been that of a modern classic. A rugged blue, fearless red, elegant black, classical walnut, and contemporary birch. But some days, Thelio feels more like a pink. An energetic pink. It’s time for Thelio’s alter ego to shine. A full redesign where it can be its modern, classic, energetic self.

Now you can let your alter ego shine, too, with new swappable color accent panels. Ponder with Neptune Blue, or use Martian Red to rise to the challenge. And when the day is done, new Farout Pink will help you blow off steam on Steam.

Let your alter ego shine with Thelio's new swappable color accent panels.

Crafted With Intention in Denver, Colorado


US-sourced materials, US-based expertise

Thelio desktops are designed, engineered, and manufactured at our factory in Denver, CO using aluminum and wood sourced from US companies. For every Thelio purchased, we plant a tree through the National Forest Foundation.

Aluminum origins

Thelio begins as a solid sheet of aluminum. This is fed into a CNC laser-punch machine, where it’s cut, formed, and threaded.

Parts take shape

Chassis parts are cut and bent to precise measurements, ensuring each machine ships with the same high-quality construction.

Infused with elegance

Shimmering black powder coats the aluminum with a premium cosmic aesthetic. Every design choice embodies the character of our company and community.

Colors to match

Swappable color accent panels change Thelio’s look to mesh with the user’s personality. Color options include real walnut or birch wood, Neptune Blue, Martian Red, Farout Pink, or Etched PCB Traces.

Our products are constantly evolving. Customer feedback and thorough testing help us craft a faster, quieter, and longer-lasting system. Each iteration addresses the needs of our users while streamlining processes. And because we manufacture in-house, any changes we make can be applied to our production process as soon as they’ve passed testing.

Thelio Io is a System76-designed chassis controller and hard drive backplane that regulates Thelio’s thermals for consistent performance output. It does this using motherboard data, fan speed, GPU data, and OS data to coordinate optimal airflow and acoustics.


Making hardware that’s open source allows anyone to learn from the Thelio design, adapt it, improve it, and make derivative works inspired by what we've created. Thelio desktops and Thelio Io are all OSHWA-certified open source hardware licensed under GPL v3 and CC-BY-SA, with design files hosted on GitHub. We hope Thelio can be a spark for open source hardware just as GNU and Linux were the sparks that forever changed the way software was developed and shared nearly three decades ago.

System76 supports every user’s right to repair. In fact, the chassis is designed for it. When you buy a Thelio from us, it’s yours to customize, upgrade, tinker, and replace parts at will. We back this promise with lifetime support for your product and a 30-day money back guarantee.
