Systemax has unveiled its first desktop PC pre-installed with desktop Linux. The budget model is selling in the US for $299.
The system builder chose Linspire's operating system for its Venture L335 system which comes with an Intel Celeron D processor, 40GB hard drive and 256MB of Ram.
"Most people buy computers, not operating systems. It is important that people can experience Linux without having to install it themselves," said Kevin Carmony, president and chief executive at Linspire.
"The success of companies like Dell shows that people want to buy affordable computers direct from the manufacturer, but be able to configure the system to fit their exact needs. Now people can enjoy the same benefits of buying custom-built PCs with Linux."
However, would be UK customers will be disappointed as the $299.99 PCs are only available to US consumers.
