Linux computer builders System76 have added a new netbook to their lineup. The System76 Starling EduBook is basically a rebadged Intel Classmate PC with a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display and 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 processor.
But while most Classmate PC models are sold with Windows XP or Windows 7, the Starling EduBook will ship with Ubuntu 10.04 Education Edition Netbook Remix.
Rounding out the specs are 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi, 3 USB ports, VGA output, mic and headphone jacks, an SD card reader, a 0.3MP webcam, and a 6 cell battery. The netbook measurs 10? x 8? x 1.5? and measures 2.8 pounds. It has a semi-ruggedized design and is built for students.
The netbook will only begin shipping in May, but it’s already up for pre-order if you want one. The list price is $399.
