To go on sale in the US this month: Lenovo ThinkPad P laptops with Ubuntu.

Dell may be the best-known Linux laptop vendor right now, but Lenovo is looking to muscle in on the pre-installed Linux machine market.

Shipping Linux on high-end, premium machines like these is indicative of one thing: demand.

Lenovo is clearly hearing from its customers, from businesses, and from developers that they want LINUX out of the box.


@Linux cool but what linux user would use a manifacturer shipped OS? I mean I would buy just for the garenteed HW compatability but still just reinstall the OS (even if I were to use ubuntu for anything other then servers)


Obviously these kind of availabilities are spot on for businesses / home users who have become Spydows 10 refugees and are NOT into any type of tinkering.

A large portion of even seasoned Linux users are not in it for tinkering. Not nowadays. Linux has become easy enough, universal enough.

@Linux yeah I know but still. I know plenty of windows user that reinstall the os right away. And if they trully have proper support the ubuntu install process is IMO easier then the windows 10

@Linux @claudiom It's good to see more laptop vendors getting in the open source OS market. It's a win for everyone that prefers open source to Windows or Apple.
