Acer Ubuntu Linux laptops

Acer is joining the likes of Dell in releasing PCs loaded with Linux, rather than the standard fallback of Windows XP or Vista. The Aspire 5710z is modelled after the basic 5710, but uses Ubuntu, a Linux variant with a friendlier graphical interface. As configured by the Singapore-based MemoryWorld, it has a a 1.73GHz dual-core Intel processor, plus 512MB of RAM and an 80GB hard disk; the optical drive is a Super Multi DVD burner, and wireless comes in the form of 802.11b/g. The laptop is now selling from MemoryWorld for $999 SGD, or $660 US. [via Laptoping]
