For open source lovers out there looking for a Sandy Bridge fix, System 76 has come to the rescue. According to the company’s website, two new notebooks have been released featuring Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat and the latest Intel 32nm Sandy Bridge architecture.
The two laptops dubbed Serval and Gazelle will both feature full HD 15.6” screens and of course, Ubuntu 10.10. The higher end Serval features a Core i7 Processor ranging from 2GHz-2.5 GHZ, a GeForce GTX 485M and starts at a solid $1,379. On the other hand the lower end Gazelle has a broader range of processors, a GTX 460M, and starts at a mere $1,239.
While the price tag is quite high for an open source OS notebook, the specs in these machines match the big bucks. After all, System 76 didn’t attach the Serval with the title of “most powerful Ubuntu laptop in the world” for nothing.
