    does the System76 Pangolin Performance laptop have user removable battery?

    I was looking on the web for a laptop that comes preinstalled with Ubuntu because my two laptops over the past 6 years have had problems running it. I thought the Dell Vostro v13 looked pretty awesome but it doesnt' have a user removable battery. After looking at the Ubuntu Forums I found this one:

    http://www.system76.com/product_info...roducts_id=100

    Does anyone know if the battery on that is removable (so I can use it with just the power cord when I'm at home)?

    Also - any comments on if its a good deal for the specs? Any other Ubuntu laptop recommendations?

    Thanks,

    Adel

    one more question if you guys don't mind! =)

    I read here that the OS that comes with the System76 laptop is not the same as the standard Ubuntu.

    Does the System76 laptop come with an install CD so that I can fresh install without fear of having to look for all the drivers I need/etc myself?

    Thanks,

    Adel

    I don't believe they come with a CD but all the necessary drivers are packaged together and getting them installed back on your system is pretty straightforward.

    The details in all their glory are here:

    In addition to Flyers2391's comment, System76 computers do come with pretty much standard Ubuntu, plus our System76 Driver.
