Slowly but surely, Canonical is successfully hooking up with top computer hardware manufacturers and helping to deliver systems--especially laptops and notebooks--with Ubuntu pre-loaded. The latest case in point is the Asus Eee PC 1255C, shown here, which comes with Ubuntu and a pretty impressive list of hardware specs.You can find out much more about the Asus Ubuntu-ready notebooks here, and they come in a variety of colors.  They offer full HD 1080p through an HDMI connection, and come with Intel Atom Cedar Tral processors. The laptops have 11.6-inch LED backlit LCD screens, Chiclet keyboards, and multi-touch pads. For connectivity, you get 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and optional Bluetooth 3.0. A 500GB hard drive and 2GB of memory are standard.It looks like pricing isn't set yet for these notebooks, but previous version of the same model have gone for about $422. This latest Ubuntu system from Asus is just one of many success stories that Canonical is having in getting top-tier hardware manufacturers to cozy up to Ubuntu. Dell and Canonical are teamed up on delivering Ubuntu PCs in China as well as India.  Canonical's strategy is hardly U.S.-based, but it does appear that systems with Ubuntu will be moving from top PC makers all around the world.
