HP launches Ubuntu-based desktop computer

Hewlett-Packard has surprised the Linux community by launching a new Pavilion all-in-one desktop computer that has been specifically designed for running Ubuntu Linux.

Known as HP Pavilion 20-b101ea the AIO PC isn’t exactly a powerhouse so it is highly unlikely it will appeal to gamers. The machine is powered by AMD’s E1-1200 APU with two Bobcat cores at 1.4 GHz and built-in graphics hardware that is equivalent to AMD’s Radeon HD 7310 GPU with 80 stream processors on-board. The HP Pavilion 20-b101ea comes with 4 GB of DDR3 SDRAM standard but you can up the memory to 8 GB. Storage options include a 500 GB hard drive and a slim tray-based DVD-RW drive – all housed behind a 20-inch LED-backlit display at 1600 x 900 pixels working resolution.

Other specs include USB 2.0 and USD 3.0 ports, an integrated six-in-one card reader, Wi-Fi and Ethernet support and finally built-in speakers and headphone and microphone jacks as well as a front-facing web camera. There’s a 2-year warranty too.

The HP Pavilion 20-b101ea is available now for GBP 384 but to celebrate the launch HP offers the AIO PC at a special discount price for the time being – GBP 349.
