The X51 Gaming Desktop from Alienware will come with Ubuntu Linux starting at $599.00 up to $1049.00. One can see the various configurations and pricing from this link.
There appear to be 4 featured models all running Intel processors. The base model with an i3, two mid-level models running the i5, and the top end model sporting the i7 Intel processors. All four offer 1080p HD, NVIDIA graphics, and 7200 rpm SATA platters. All come with 8Gb of RAM except the base model which has 6Gb.
Some may ask, “Where are the Linux games?” Try looking here!
It’s really nice to see popular hardware manufacturers offer Linux at all … but to offer Linux for a gaming computer is fantastic. Hopefully game producers will see the market and offer native Linux ports of popular modern games.
