New Archos 10 SKU includes Ubuntu, 2GB RAM and 500GB HDD

June 29, 2009 at 12:03 pm

Archos 10 UbuntuArchos is releasing a version of its 10-inch netbook, the Archos 10 Ubuntu Edition, which will include Ubuntu 9.04, 2GB RAM, a 500GB HDD and a 6-cell battery for €375 in France. So far this has only been announced for the Archos 10 rather than the recently announced Archos 10s, which is much slimmer than the original, but includes the same specifications.

This is only slightly more expensive than the standard Windows XP SKU that costs €349 and comes with 1GB RAM and a 160GB HDD. So far there is no idea if this SKU will be sold outside of France or, if indeed there will be an Archos 10s Ubuntu edition. We’ll report back on further developments.

    The world needs this, I need this. Archos makes some beautiful electronics, I would not hesitate to purchase if they become available in the USA. Netbook + Ubuntu = GOOD GOOD GOOD.

    I would really like to see Surcouf consider marketing this in the US, I bet it would be a big hit. Its got just a little more power than the usual selection of netbooks here and Americans like more power.
