    System76 and Ubuntu Computers - Experience? Thoughts?

    Hey all, I've been using Linux Mint 13 "Maya" with MATE since it came out (and I've been using LM since Julia). My current laptop, while still functional, is starting to show its age a bit - after all, she's going on 6 years this upcoming June. While I'll still keep her for just general use, I'm looking to make the full switch over to Ubuntu, and want to get a high-quality computer as a graduation gift for myself. Enter System76 (www.system76.com).

    Has anyone bought a computer from them? I've been reading reviews as of late and have explored their website and really love the Sable Complete system as well as the Gazelle Professional. However, I'm just wondering if anyone else has heard of them, or bought from them, and what their thoughts were overall.

    PS: Yes, I do realize I could get a nice ultrabook and install Ubuntu on it, however, there comes the issues of whether it will work with the hardware that was provided. System76 takes care of that issue by giving you the options that will work well/best with the OS... Or so I'm lead to believe.

    ^Sexyguy, I can't tell you anything about System 76, but I can give you some idea about Ubuntu, since I've used it for several months now on a laptop.

    It works pretty good. If you want to get it to work with your printer, you will have to dig deep and do some research. It will involve installing a dependency, which in turn will involve opening a repository. Be patient.

    Having said that, installing the printer driver will allow you to print beautifully, but may not allow you to scan--something to think about.

    I have found one oddity with Ubuntu--it handles Javascript rather poorly. Sites that depend upon it, such as Pinterest, simply won't work. I have to boot up under Puppy Linux or Tin Hat Linux to see Pinterest at all.

    I don't know anything about System76, either. I agree that it's great that a few companies like System76 and Zareason and EmperorLinux will do the work for you of making sure all the drivers work for all of your hardware. This is especially true since the advent of UEFI secure boot with Windows 8, which can make it extremely difficult to install Linux on any computer designed for Windows.

    I suspect it may be slightly more expensive to buy from a vendor who has done the installation for you than it is to hack Linux onto a cheap Windows PC. But, if you can afford it, it can also save you some hassle.

    Good luck, SexyGuy.
