The Most Expensive Netbook Ever is Running Linux

The Most Expensive Netbook Ever is Running Linux: Who says Linux netbooks are cheap? At Dell's website, they have posted perhaps the most expensive netbook ever. Its cost? A staggering $100,278 USD. What's more surprising is that the said netbook is powered by Ubuntu Linux. Some of its technical specifications are as follows:

Intel Atom N270 Processor
160G, 2.5inch, 5400RPM SATA Hard Drive

For the price, I know the specs sound pretty basic and it's not even gold-plated or diamond-encrusted. If you think that I'm kidding, see this photo:

It's undeniably a pricing error on Dell's part, which has been fixed as of the moment. The real price of Dell Mini 10n running Ubuntu Linux is only $279 :-)

The price oversight was posted first at Ubergizmo.


  1. Its not an error.
    This is what happens when companies pay the Microsoft extortion tax!!

  2. Microsoft is by far the worst operating system to crawl this Earth. That is why I a proud follower of linux. Burn Windows!

  3. My laptop is dual boot, opensuse 11.4 and windows 7. Opensuse 11.4 is my everyday OS, but I have to boot up Windows 7 so I can run Adobe Lightroom 3.3 and CS5 :( Adobe will not listen to me when I say that they need to make Linux versions of there software.
