"System76 has updated its Linux-based netbook to the Atom N455 processor as well as making it thinner and lighter. The Ubuntu 10.04 version of the 10.1-inch Starling NetBook offers more memory (2GB), a larger standard hard drive (250GB), faster Wi-Fi (802.11b/g/n), and is available in a school-focused "EduBook" version.

"If ABI Research is correct in its estimate that about a third of all netbooks ship with Linux, you sure wouldn't know it from living in the United States. Linux netbook sightings are still rare, especially when the OS is the main course instead of an afterthought option to Windows.

"Typically, one must either look to Dell or to a tuxified system integrator such as ZaReason or Denver-based System76. The latter is now taking orders for its latest version of the Ubuntu-ready Starling NetBook."
