can . It’s all learn a little and get out another bit of conventional circuits aimed at the general public, read department stores or “shops”, although the latter sometimes have loopholes through which “sneak”.
Taking as starting
an article on Engadget where they assess the options available to buy a computer with Linux, is de rigueur recognize that supply is rather low . However, there are interesting ways, of course, begin with international orders. For example, System76, the most popular specialized seller. Or, in the case of well-known manufacturers specific models, the Dell XPS 13.
I have rather stayed “home” for what to learn more about the field, and in this respect the original article speaks of Mountain, a brand that has long been demonstrating their good work. The downside I find is that they charge you 22 euros for preinstall Ubuntu in any of the models to get the sale, which seems a tad expensive.
ended up with alternatives that give us with PCUbuntu Engadget, a shop that did not know whose name sums up its contents. In it you will find both desktops and laptops , media centers and even monitors and other accessories, all with Ubuntu preinstalled. But not just any version: “our computers are LTS version, the last being 12.04. No intermediate versions installed “clarify on the cover. The truth is that PCUbuntu seems a more attractive option for the user common Mountain.
No more? Well, If you’re lucky can find some great surface where plan rarity in a PC or laptop with Linux. If it’s worth it or not is another matter, for what is certain is that you will not have to choose. Moreover, there PCBOX type shop or JPA, despite not sell anything with Linux preinstalled (to my knowledge), if you can mount a Linux clone and settle. My experience with specific PCBOX is that years ago I settled Red Hat if asked and not get charged for it. Now I do not know what will the topic.
But, yes, I have another experience to contribute, and it makes a year or a family member that he broke the computer and asked me to find him “cheapie something and put a Linux “, which is what was used on the job and deal with him playing, he said,” heavy and confusing Windows 7 “(hey, since I put Linux, had settled and needed no more, as many sometimes happens). Then I looked for stores that sold me preinstalled Linux machines, specifically in Spain, and I found VantPC.
VantPC is an PCUbuntu style, addressed to the common user, but unlike the former does not sell directly, but does so through a third party. I bought the team in Carrefour Online, I removed the Ubuntu 11.04 bringing factory and I put Xubuntu 12.04 and so far no problems (can not remember the components of the machine). VantPC now has more models around, so I recommend you take a look and see what you think.
course, could have done what I always do, which is to mount a clone myself as appropriate and me install the distribution to consider later, but it seemed more interesting to test and it worked (to the relief of my family!).
step Now I leave you and your comments, which will be of particular value to American readers, because if I have bigger Spain, Latin imagine. What experiences have regard?
