Hardware, Embedded Systems If online articles and blogs are any indication of things, the number of Linux users migrating to, and satisfied with, Ubuntu GNU/Linux seems to be staggering. Given that, it was only a matter of time before a capable company had the resources to offer accessible, affordable Linux desktops and notebooks that delivered the way that Apple's products have. Colorado-based System76 sent us their Darter Ultra for review, and proved that there is an OEM hardware/software combination capable of being the primary PC for the general public.

And a smaller trackpad, no camera.... and the big kicker: DVI out. I can hook my computer up to my plasma a display photos, or movies, or.... whatever.

I think the better deal is still the Macbook. I don't want to pay 300 bones for a a card reader and a "better located USB".

After using my macbook for a month now I have never thought to myself, "Hey... I wish this laptop had a better located USB port"

I used my Macbook Pro for 9 months before I finally said "this is nuts" and sold it. Now I think it everytime I have to switch the ports on my iMac. USB location *is* important for some people.
