We’ve gotten our hands on quite a few Ultrabooks but we’ve never had the pleasure of seeing one based on Linux, the ZaReason UltraLap 430.  It comes with a 14.1-inch display that has a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels, 2 USB 3.0 ports and 1x USB 2.0, HDMI output as well as an SD card. The base model comes with an Intel Core i3 Ivy Bridge processor, 4GB RAM, 32GB SSD and a 6-cell battery. Both can the chip and SSD memory can be upgraded if you’re looking for a bit more power and storage space.

From the photo’s you should be able to tell that the term Ultrabook but is instead referring to the Ultraportable category that is quickly becoming an industry standard.

You’ll be able to run various Linux operating systems like Ubuntu 12.04, Debian, Fedora, Linux Mint or you can even just grab it with out an operating system at all for $ 899. Of course you can also install Linux on a Windows machine, but for those in a Red Hat this version is a little more relaxed since everything is all set up right out of the box.

    Thet 768p display is really a show-stopper.

    I think that Linux is probably the best operating system available now, but I can’t run it because there are many applications that can’t be used with it. I’m hoping that sometime in the future this will be changed because I would love to use it all the time.
