Canonical has partnered with AMD, HP and Ebuyer.com to launch three Ubuntu laptops designed for business buyers.
The £200 HP Probook 255, £250 Probook 355 and £300 ProBook 455 will be made available for pre-order on Ebuyer.com at the end of May.
All three laptops will include 15.6in LED touch screen displays, 1TB hard drives, quad-core AMD APUs with RadeonTM graphics, and Ubuntu 14.04 LTS pre-installed.
The Probook 455 will feature 8GB of RAM, while the 255 and 355 will house a more modest 4GB.
Canoncial released Ubuntu 14.04 LTS in April 2014 describing it as a cost-effective and secure replacement for Microsoft's unsupported Windows XP operating system.
The laptops are the latest step in Canonical's bid to the break the Linux-based OS out of the server room and into the office.
Maria Bonnefon, global client sales director at Canonical, explained that the AMD and Ebuyer.com partnership is a key step in the firm's enterprise growth plans.
"We are extremely pleased to be launching Ubuntu on AMD-based HP devices with Ebuyer.com here in the UK," she said.
"Ebuyer.com has proved itself to be a stalwart in the UK electronics retail space and we are excited to be aligning with them on offering the Ubuntu desktop OS to local customers. We are thrilled by the growing success of this partnership and what lies ahead."
AMD commercial channel lead James Blackman agreed, but said that he expects the laptops to also perform well in the small business market.
"By combining HP notebook platforms with AMD multicore APUs and Ubuntu OS, Ebuyer.com is bringing to market an offering for small to mid-sized firms and small office/home offices that is competitively priced," he said.
Ebuyer.com general manager Lee Weymouth added that the firm chose to partner with Canonical following the success of a previous trial selling an Ubuntu laptop.
"We trialled and sold Ubuntu preloaded on one device last year with huge success, which precipitated our desire to expand our efforts and offer customers a wider range of Ubuntu preloaded devices. We are excited to be expanding our partnership with Canonical," he said.
The news follows reports that many companies are still running unsupported Windows XP machines.
Reports broke that the government has not renewed its £5.5m Windows XP support deal with Microsoft, despite thousands of computers across Whitehall still running the unprotected software.
