System76 sells laptop and desktop computers preloaded with Ubuntu Linux. The company’s Starling Netbook was one of the first Intel Atom powered mini-laptops to ship with Ubuntu 9.04. And apparently demand for the netbook has been so high that the company is having trouble keeping the netbook in stock.
The company’s president tells Works With U that System76 ran out of netbooks two weeks earlier than expected. According to the product order page, they should be back in stock around August 10th. System76 has also seen high demand for the Meerkat NetTop, which also runs Ubuntu and has a starting price of just $249.

With the price starting at $249, I can see why they have difficulty keeping up with demand. It also looks nice too.
Noticed a nice review of the Starling netbook on the UMPC Forums:
