System76 reveals Bonobo Extreme, a 17.3-inch Ubuntu-powered gaming laptop
Now that Steam will be available for Ubuntu any time now, you might be interested in taking a look at System76's latest and greatest Ubuntu-powered laptop designed specifically for the gaming enthusiast: the Bonobo Extreme. The open-source machine-maker has made Ubuntu PCs before, like the Gazelle and Serval laptops and the recent Sable Complete all-in-one, but none come close to the Bonobo Extreme in terms of speed and performance. The base model is tricked out with an Intel i7 3630QM 2.4GHz processor, an NVIDIA Geforce GTX 670MX 3GB GPU, 8GB of DDR3 RAM, a 500GB 7200 RPM hard drive, an 8x DVD drive, an 8-cell battery and a 17.3-inch glossy, backlit display. At this configuration, it's already quite the wallet-buster at $1,499 (and that's after the $100 Christmas discount), but you can push that sum skyward fairly easily if you're a stickler for premium components. But perhaps its beautiful backlit keyboard, spacious Synaptics Clickpad and the sheer satisfaction of shooting Left 4 Dead zombies will help soothe the financial pain.
