2GHz Cortex-A9 Ubuntu laptop demoed at CES

Okay, I’ll admit that I’m a bit obsessed about Ubuntu on ARM and have been scouring Twitter and YouTube for any interesting news from CES.

I just found this gem on YouTube: a dual-core 2GHz Cortex-A9 14″ laptop.  Sounds about right to me.

Check out the video on YouTube.

In my personal reading of the tea leaves, Mark Shuttleworth is on a bold mission at CES.  And I think that it’s because of Ubuntu and Linaro that Microsoft felt pressured to announce (rather awkwardly) that Windows 8 will run on ARM.

What do you think?
