ZaReason launches Verix 2.5 pre-loaded Linux laptop

With options including an i7 processor and a 300GB Intel SSD, device comes ready to go with the Linux distribution of your choice

Article comments

ZaReason has launched a new pre-loaded Linux laptop targeting the high end of the market, the ZaReason Verix 2.5 which is available now in the US starting at $1,799.00 (around £1,150).

The 15.6-inch Verix 2.5's base configuration includes a 2.3GHz Intel i3-2350M processor with two cores and four threads, but i5 and i7 alternatives with up to eight threads are also available for an extra charge.

For memory, 4GB of DDR3-1333 comes standard, but it's expandable up to 16GB; the default hard drive offers 250GB and 5400 RPM, but upgrades include a 300GB Intel SSD. Nvidia's GTX 580M serves as the video card with 2GB of DDR5 video RAM.

A bright LED backlit display offers 1920-by-1080-pixel resolution, while a subwoofer and speakers on both sides of the keyboard promise quality sound output. Bluetooth, 802.11 B/G/N WiFi, a 3.0 megapixel webcam, and a combo CD-RW and dual-layer DVD-RW drive are also included.

Ubuntu 11.10, Debian 6, Linux Mint 12, and Fedora 16 are among the operating systems that can be preinstalled; alternatively, the machine can also be purchased with no operating system at all.

The Verix 2.5 certainly isn't the cheapest laptop out there, but it offers a number of advantages that could counterbalance that price.

If you're a Linux fan and are in the market for a high-end laptop, this could be a good one to check out.
