I'm looking for a new system and System76 looks like the best option. Do they include a factory restore disk with all notebooks? How easy is there wireless to setup using WPA-TKIP encryption or WPA2?

Thanks,

They do not. See here:

The only thing you need is an Ubuntu Desktop (live) CD & do a default install, enable the ATI or NVIDIA drivers, and install the System76 Driver. You can do that by downloading it from a link on that page I linked to or by adding this:


deb http://planet76.com/repositories/ ./

... to your /etc/apt/sources.list then run


wget -q http://planet76.com/repositories/system76_dev.pub -O- | sudo apt-key add - && sudo apt-get update

... and


sudo apt-get install system76-driver

... to install. The app is under System>>Administration. Hit the "Install" button under the "Install Drivers" tab, then reboot.

Done! :D
