Did you ever wonder that a Linux based Ultrabook could be a reality? Well, officially it is. As the popularity of Linux operating system soars all over the world, Ubuntu has grabbed more attention of home users than any other distros.
California based tech company ZaReason has recently released their UltraLap 430 which is more like an ultrabook from many aspects. But the main feature that really stands out from the ordinary ultrabooks is that it comes with the latest Ubuntu Operating system instead of your typical Windows OS. However, if you want you can definitely give it a shot with Windows as well.
While visiting the official home page of UltraLap 430, I was really amazed to see all the customization options available for this laptop computer. The basic configuration of this laptop features a 14.1-inch HD Glossy LED Backlit display (1366×768) which is powered by Intel’s HD 4000 graphics engine. Typical Wi-Fi (b/g/n), Bluetooth, card reader, and a 1.3 Megapixel HD webcam is also included. The brain of this computer is the third generation Intel core processor which features the third-generation Ivy Bridge technology.
You would have the option to add typical hard drive along with its basic 32GB mSATA SSD drives which can take advantage of Intel’s Rapid Start Technology for faster boot up. Initial configuration includes an i3 processor which runs at 1.8 GHz clock speed; however if you want to get little more boost, you can go for an i5 core processor as well.
“Our goal is to build hardware that more aptly matches the high-end aspects of FOSS,…With the UltraLap I think our R&D nailed it.” says ZaReason CEO Cathy Malmrose.
