Ebuyer are delighted to announce we will be the first UK retailer to sell a manufacturer-installed ‘Ubuntu OS’ computer.
The HP 255 G1 is available for pre-order today for £219.99 and will be available with Ubuntu OS.
The 15.6 inch laptop is powered by an AMD Dual Core E1 processor, has 4GB of RAM and a 750GB Hard Drive.
Head of Consumer Electronics, Lee Weymouth, believes offering an open operating system will give consumers some much needed variation in the laptop market.
“We’re selling the “No OS” notebook to give customers a wider choice with what operating system they want to install. Windows or MAC OS may be the most popular on the market but there are still options out there and this Ubuntu OS is a great alternative to the big boys.”
Ubuntu is currently difficult to acquire pre-installed on a computer in Europe, with the current market focus around South America and China.
“We know the wider market will look no further than Windows 8 when buying a new laptop but there is still a huge part of the tech community that want an open-source OS”. Lee Weymouth.
