When it comes to laptops that solely ship Ubuntu as an Operating System one of the most well known names is System76. During the Ubuntu Developer Summit in Oakland, CA a few weeks back I had an opportunity to chat over lunch with System76 CEO, Carl Richell about the exciting products they are working on at their Headquarters in Colorado. Carl invited me to check out one of their current laptop offerings the Lemur Ultra which I spent some time with here in the labs.
Computing company System76 have begun shipping laptops pre-loaded with Ubuntu 12.04. The 'Precise' release is provided out-of-the-box on two models - the 14.1" Lemur Ultra and the 15.6" Pangolin Performance.

Independent Ubuntu computer manufacturer System76 refreshed their popular 15.6" Serval Professional line earlier this year, upgrading the laptop with an impressively fast second gen Intel Sandy Bridge i7 quad core processor, powerful Nvidia graphics, a lovely 1080p display and lots of options for optical drives and storage. On the outside this model sports a refreshed chiclet-style keyboard, a larger multitouch trackpad, improved aesthetics, and a soft rubber finish. The result is a ridiculously powerful and good looking desktop replacement from System76, and in the base configuration starting at $1,369 USD, competitively priced against other similarly spec'd computers including the latest MacBook Pro.
