ZaReason created the first Linux Ultrabook

ZaReason, the company that builds Linux desktops and laptops, has released the UltraLap 430, the first Ultrabook that comes with Linux.


UltraLap 430 will cost $899 and it comes with quite decent hardware specs, a 1.8GHz 3rd generation Intel Core i3 CPU, 4GB of DD3 RAM for memory and a 32GB SSD for storage. For connection, you got 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and two USB 3.0 ports. For graphic display, the screen is 14.1' with 1366x768 native resolution, the UltraLap 430 comes with HD 4000 graphics and in case you want to output video, a HDMI port is there to serve you.

But if you are willing to pay more, you have plenty of available upgrading options. The UltraLap 430 can be buffed with an i5 3317U chip, 16GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD. In case you think a single SSD is not enough, you can go for a secondary one, from a 128 SSD to 500GB HDD


When it comes to the OS, you can pick Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Edubuntu, Fedora, Linux Mint and Debian. You can make a dual boot with Windows as well but you will have to do it by yourself.
