Ubuntu Cyber Monday Deals: $279 Ubuntu Dell Laptop & 50% Off O’Reilly eBooks

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

After Black Friday comes the online version: Cyber Monday.

Sadly, much to the chagrin of bargain hunters like myself, there aren’t that many Ubuntu-specific offers to be found online. I was expecting some of the newer Ubuntu-loaded ASUS laptops to be reduced by the big retailers sites. But, alas.

That said, there are a couple of offers worth knowing about.

Canada: Dell Ubuntu laptop for $279

Remember that $279 Dell Vostro deal from Black Friday? If you happened to miss out on it you’ve got another chance as Dell are pimping a similar one for Cyber Monday.

Slightly larger than Friday’s offer, the Dell Vostro 2520 is a 15.6″ Ubuntu laptop with 4GB of RAM, an Intel i3 CPU clocked at 2.2 Ghz, and Intel HD Graphics 3000. A 6 cell battery, 500GB HDD, smattering of the usual USB, audio and visual ports, and a DVD drive make it an ideal all-rounder.

If you want to bag it at $279 you’ll need to be quick: Dell are only offering 150 systems at this price. To get it use this code, 223G5B$69HHX12, when going through check-out.

Once all 150 are gone the lowest price you can get the laptop for will be $299.
