    New System76 All-In-One computer!

    System76 just launched a new All-In-One computer, the Sable Complete.


    At the very least I am happy to see some innovation with Linux occurring! I know all-in-ones are not new, but this looks pretty good and is a new form factor for getting a Linux system.

    I am glad the OMG!Ubuntu article (Meet The $799 All-in-One Ubuntu PC from System76) also included a comparison chart.

    Seems like this system is comparable to current products; not outstanding value but not an extreme price tag either!

    Looks pretty cool, but what do you think?

    If it had a GPU, I'd be all over it.

    True. No reason to not have a discrete GPU on something that's plugged into the wall... I'd take the Visio or Mac (or a Lenovo) over the System76 in this case, and simply install Ubuntu.

    Or Ivy Bridge graphics. HD 4000 is a huge step above HD 2500, if you ask me.
    Backups are amazing. 99% of data loss can be prevented by spending less than $100 on an external drive.
    If you have seen an error, there is a good chance someone else has, too. Google is your friend.

    There is the option to upgrade to an i7 with HD 4000 graphics:
    3rd Generation Intel Core i7 3770S ( 3.10GHz - 8MB cache - 4 Cores with Hyperthreading - HD Graphics 4000 ) ( + $165.00 )
    This does look pretty nice, but after doing all the "necessary" upgrades, like the graphics and Wifi, and maybe a bigger HD, the price isn't that impressive (although I am super cheap, and this form factor isn't the most price friendly). If I was looking for a new Desktop in this form factor, I would definitely consider this, though I still prefer traditional towers.

    I know that you can upgrade to the i7, but the Lemur Ultra (their cheapest laptop) has Ivy Bridge graphics standard.
    I do agree that it is lacking, but you have to realize what they are doing. They are using 2.5" laptop drives in the case rather than the standard 3.5" desktop drives, so capacity is lower and more expensive. WiFi should be standard, I must agree, along with Bluetooth built in like the laptops.
    I would like it to have better graphics, but they have basically no room for a PCI card (although laptops somehow have dedicated GPUs, so it has to be do-able somehow).
    Either way, for a real powerhouse, these computers have never been a strong suit. Towers are where the power is, so they really take the cake for expansion abilities and pricing.

    they should make them cheaper....

    also i agree on the GPU should be at least HD4000 if not dedicated.
