System76 may not be a household name, but the computer company is pretty popular with Linux enthusiasts, because it’s known for building and selling PCs preloaded with the popular Ubuntu Linux distribution. The company’s latest machine is the $359 Starling Netbook, which comes with the recently released Ubuntu 9.04 OS.
Aside from the operating system, the computer’s specs seem pretty standard:
- CPU: 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270
- Display: 10.1″ 1024 x 576
- RAM: 1GB
- Storage: 160GB HDD
- Connectivity: 802.11b/g, Ethernet
- I/O: 3 USB ports, Headphone, Mic, SD card reader,
- Webcam: 0.3MP
- Battery: 6 cells
- Dimensions: 10.4″ x 7.1″ x 1.3″
- Weight: 2.6 pounds
The computer comes with a 1 year warranty. You can pay extra for a 3 year warranty or a USB DVD burner.
System76 also has a nettop computer that has a dual core Intel Atom 330 CPU, but which is a tiny desktop instead of a laptop. That means you’ll need to provide your own monitor, but the Meerkat Nettop prices start at just $249.
