Although I love the direction of Sys76, now thinking about it... I bought my laptop with only slighty worse specs and it cost half the price. I think it's a bit expensive, though with better build quality.
I never understood why system76 or zareason do not sell more peripherals. Particularly things where driver support is no obvious. Like wifi cards. Then when linux haters complain about driver support. Someone could say "well, did you buy compatible hardware? System76 stuff ALWAYS works"
its costly if you are an asian....shipping cost will be high.... its better to buy laptop from other companies in your country who offer linux distros with it....i bought from acer & i got some linux os pre installed with it....i formated it & now using ubuntu 12.04....
+Alvar Berglind you have a point since a 3.5 inch screen can push 960x640 a 12 inch should be capable of a theoretical 3264x2176 if that said device was a wide screen iphone 4s with a 12 inch screen lol so yes recent devices should be easily capable of pushing majorly high resolution but the question is "wtf tech companies why isnt my tiny 12 inch laptop 1080p already?" (not netbooks they are dead)
right now it seems the highest resolution for 15" is 1680×1050 on a 2010 MacBook Pro 15″ model with optional high-resolution that year is what i found listed is all might also be other years with same res or better
