    Of course, the prices stated above are for the base configurations. Price will go up if you choose to up the CPU, add more ram, splurge for a SSD, etc. Both laptops ship Ubuntu 11.10 64-bit installed by default but I’m sure once Ubuntu 12.04 is released, it will ship with that.

     Is System76 serious?  A 15.6″ laptop with a screen resolution of 1366×768?  And no laptops with a backlit keyboard.  Sadly, I predict they will not stay in business much longer.

    System 76 has been in business since 2005. I would say that they must be doing something right.
