Finally, you can now, in the UK, buy a laptop with Ubuntu pre-installed. This is fantastic news. I'll definitely be getting my next laptop there. Just imagine: a laptop with no hardware/Linux compatibility issues. How cool that would be?
I tried putting one together and managed to get 2048Mb RAM, dual core 1.73GHz Celeron processor, plus the basics (basic DVD/CDRW drive, no accidental damage cover, basic screen etc.) for £512. Not bad at all.
