HP selling Linux-loaded laptops in Australia


HP has started selling its first pre-loaded Linux computers, although it's arguably a rather backwater offering. You see, the HP dx2250 is HP's first pre-loaded Linux machine, but it's only available in Australia, and only in this iteration. The desktop machine runs 1.6GHz AMD Semprons up to the 2.8Ghz AMD Athlon 64 X2, comes with 2GB of RAM, HDD up to 250GB, and CD drives up to Multi-Format burners. You'll have to pay around $500 for the pre-installation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Desktop version too: this ain't no Dellbuntu deal.
