System76 introduces new high-end Ubuntu Linux laptops


Quote:
Thanks to Windows 8's Secure Boot, it's getting harder and harder for a non-technical user to just get a new laptop and run Linux. System76, along with other Linux PC vendors such as ZaReason, have a better idea: Just buy a laptop with Linux already installed.

System76, which specializes in Ubuntu Linux laptops, desktops, and servers, is introducing two new Ubuntu laptops for gamers and office and home workers: The Galago UltraPro and the Gazelle Professional.

Gamers? Yes, gamers.

Games have always been available on Linux, but with Steam now supporting Linux, gaming has never been bigger on Linux.

To power up those games, the UltraPro comes with a fourth-generation 2GHz Intel Core i7-4750HQ processor with four cores. For graphics, the powerful laptop comes with Intel Iris Pro graphics backed by 128MBs of eDRAM.

Always good to see vendors releasing hardware with linux pre-installed, one thing that annoys me if I want to buy a laptop, It always comes with windows loaded, and it's built into the price. I wish they could drop the price a bit and give me a blank one.
