Reviews for the HP 255 G1

60% HP Ubuntu laptop (255 G1)
Source: It Pro English
Despite the proliferation of affordable Windows machines at this end of the market, HP’s super-cheap Ubuntu machine worth considering. Ubuntu 12.04 of the OS is easy to use, with a slick interface, reasonable software and revised features. If you and your office can accept Ubuntu – and you’re willing to live with this machine’s basic performance – then it’s a decent budget buy.
