    Re: Two more Asus EEE systems preloaded

    Thank you for the link. I'm in the market for an inexpensive laptop that will run Ubuntu. Question though, the certifications are for a model number like

    ASUS Eee PC 1015PX

    But in the stores the model numbers look something like

    ASUS Eee PC 1015PX-MU17-RD

    What are those other numbers, and are they still certified?

    Yes, it should be.

    The alternative is buying the pre-installed Ubuntu system. http://www.monclick.it/catalogo/sear...ubuntu&x=0&y=0

    Europe only again, it appears.

    C'mon ASUS, why not find some US retailers who are willing to kick the Microsoft-only habit?

    I can't seem to find a preloaded laptop, refurbished or based on older processors/chipsets that's affordable and "made" or distributed in the USA

    Asus responded that they have no plans to release 1015PX with Ubuntu in the UK.
