These look very impressive, I don't really need help buying one just wanted others to see them.  They are quite impressive but expensive also.  I am interested to know more about them though if anyone is knowledgeable.  Whom are they using for the cases and such.

Perhaps this should be in another section I don't know, seems relevant enough.

It looks to me like they are the one manufacturing the cases, but I could very well be wrong. Also, I don't see how Ubuntu can be such a huge selling point, you could just buy any laptop and install it for free. The specs look fairly decent for the price, but it doesn't really look to me like you save anything by not buying a Windows laptop.

Yeah, I would have to +1 Aerys here.

 

I believe that for that type of cash you could get a pretty nice laptop and install any Linux OS right next to Windows, like you've got now.

 

Except, of course, I would not recommend Ubuntu.

I see, perhaps it is based on the support received with the purchase? that is the only thing I can see that would be of benefit.  I suppose there is more to it than I would know.

While researching this I found this thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2233722

 

Some good info. there of one persons experience.  There are some other experiences there too with other pc's that one might find useful.  Again they appear impressive but don't get the point like others have expressed.  Why not get something else that comes with another mainstream OS? that will be a much better tool to have.  I was thinking this System76 would have  been an be an impressive upper end product.  After reading the link above it seems as though I am wrong again.  Perhaps this is just someone's opinion but it seems quite honest and well documented.  I love this kind of feedback this is what the www is for!
