2012 Linux Computer Buyer’s Guide

Hardware

With the coming of a new year, it is time to take a look at the Linux computer offerings and see which distributions you can get shipped to your doorstep. I just recently ordered a new desktop from one of these vendors, and I will publish a review as soon as I have thoroughly tested it.

System76 – It has become a landmark on the Linux desktop and laptop landscape. Now in its 7th year of selling Ubuntu-based machines, System76 offers a variety of customizable laptops, desktops, and servers, all with the latest version of Ubuntu installed. From the $649 Lemur Ultra 14.1” laptop to the $2,099 Jackal Pro 2U rack-mountable server, System76 has something for just about anyone.
