Over on workswithu.com, I came across this sweet new Ubuntu Netbook. ZaReason has released the . While ZaReason is not the first to use Ubuntu, I personally think they will be one of the best!
Base specs are an Intel Atom N270 1.6 GHz CPU, 10 inch 1024×600 LCD, Intel GMA 950, Draft N Wifi, a 5400 RPM 160 GB hard drive, Optional 3G modem, 3.5 hours battery life, 3 USB ports, SD card slot, VGA port and headphone and mic jacks. Oh, and it has a Ubuntu logo on the keyboard instead of a Windows key!
Since ZaReason is not held to Microsoft’s “standards” for netbooks, you can have ZaReason upgrade the storage to a maximum of 500 GB when ordering a 5400 RPM drive, or 320 GB with a 7200 RPM drive. Ram can also be bumped to 2 GB for $29.
starts at $349. With the 320 GB 7200 RPM disk, 2 GB of ram and a 3g modem, it comes in at $556. SSD’s as large as 160 GB are also available, but of course this increases the price significantly.
