System76 Ubuntu PCs: Cyber Monday Sale
System76, the Ubuntu PC maker, continues to offer special holiday pricing on selected systems through Monday evening, November 30. Here’s a look at System76’s Ubuntu PC and notebook discounts, which are part of an ongoing Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales promotion.
First, a little background: In the U.S., Black Friday typically kicks off the holiday shopping season with major one-day discounts in retail stores. Black Friday is followed by Cyber Monday — the day many online retailers offer cyber shoppers special holiday discounts.
Even Ubuntu enthusiasts are getting into the holiday spirit. According to System76 President Carl Richell, his company is offering the following Ubuntu PC and notebook discounts as part of a “30/60/90” sale that continues through Cyber Monday (Nov. 30, 2009):
- US$30 off the Wildebeest Performance (desktop), Wild Dog Performance (desktop), Lemur UltraThin (laptop), Serval Professional (laptop)
- US$60 off the Darter Ultra and Pangolin Performance laptops
- US$90 Off the Leopard Extreme desktop

Meanwhile, a quick check of Dell’s U.S. Ubuntu site (www.dell.com/ubuntu) shows two Dell Ubuntu systems on sale, though I’m not sure when the special pricing will end. I’ve also reached out to ZaReason to find out if they’re offering any Cyber Monday sales on Ubuntu systems. I’ll post updates if/when new information surfaces.
