Hardware

The latest generation of svelte Ultrabooks paints a potent picture of performance and portability. Although Windows users have a wide assortment from which to choose, Linux enthusiasts have largely been left out of the party. There aren't many options for Linux users who want an Ultrabook that comes preloaded with their favorite distro. But the recently-introduced ZaReason UltraLap 430 aims to change that, pairing penguin power with the popular Ultrabook form factor.

Hardware and build quality

The UltraLap 430 has a 14.1-inch glossy display with LED backlighting and a resolution of 1366x768. Our $1245 review unit packs 16GB of RAM, a dual-core Core i5 CPU clocked at 1.7Ghz, and an Intel HD 4000 embedded GPU. An Intel Wi-Fi antenna, Bluetooth support, and a 1.3MP webcam are standard features.

The OS, Debian, is completely open source and to avoid closed software the company has added an Atheros Wi-Fi dongle with open source drivers rather than use the built-in Wi-Fi chip. Read more
