View Full Version : Status of Ubuntu Netbook Remix and decent netbooks in the US

October 23rd, 2008, 07:24 PM
At some point in the relatively near future, I'm going to be in the market for a cheap computer that is designed for portability and durability. With this in mind, I'm really interested in Ubuntu Netbook Remix. Is there going to be a 8.10 release of it? If so, what are going to be the hardware options for it.

I noticed that in the UK, you can get the Toshiba NB100 (105?) with Ubuntu 8.04 Netbook Remix, and from what I can tell, it looks like a great system. Has it been announced if this will becoming to the US, or is Dell's Mini 9 the only Ubuntu based netbook currently available in the States (it seems overpriced and under-featured)? Does anyone know of any upcoming systems that are Ubuntu based?
