    Sounds pretty awesome! I've toyed with the idea of getting a S76 system.

    Looks like a sweet system! You'll have to update on your thoughts and experiences when it comes in!

    Jealous.

    My next high-end laptop will either be a 76'er or something from ZaReason. That said, the very first thing I would do is to install a DE other than Unity -- probably KDE or anything that I can customize.

    I agree, I specc'd out a new desktop and found that System76 was cheaper. Then I added the import tax and found it was more expensive :/

    What we need is scrapping of all these laws wrt duties, taxes, concessions, subsidies etc so there is a level playing field so we actually move closer to free trade environment.
