Oneiric Ocelot...

What an absolutely retarded name. Whoever dreamed up something like that to use in a consumer product should be shot.

Have you ever used Ubuntu before? Oneiric Ocelot is more of a code name. If you don't have nothing useful to add do say anything at all.TROLL!

Why is it retarded? It's a dreaming cat-like critter, so what?
Are Intel's code names for its CPUs any better? Or AMD or Nvidia for their GPUs?

This is kinda really stupid. I mean what's the point? Ubuntu is freeware and gets upgraded twice a year. I'd rather buy a laptop with clean ssd than this. Because then I could install any Linux version I desire without wasting ssd cycles.

Price seems rather steep for bottom rung model. Why would anyone go for this computer over the offers from more established brand names ? Ubuntu is free anyway so notebook without an OS (or with FreeDOS) from those companies would do just fine.
