The folks over at System76 have unveiled their latest Ubuntu based notebook, the 17.3-inch Bonobo Extreme. They are touting this as a notebook with extreme performance and extreme components. Carl Richell, who is the CEO and founder of System76 notes the Bonobo Extreme as being the “world’s fastest Ubuntu laptop.” But that is not where this stops, they are also going to be (thanks to the upcoming release of Steam for Linux) offering this as a gaming notebook claiming that it will launch a “new benchmark in gaming performance.” Big talk, lets talk specs and see how that will hold up.
The Bonobo Extreme will arrive running Ubuntu 12.10 with the standard 5GB of free Ubuntu One cloud storage. Otherwise, expect to find a 17.3-inch (1920 x 1080) 1080p Full HD display, nVidia GeForce GTX 670MX with 3 GB GDDR5 Memory and 960 CUDA Cores, 8GB of Dual Channel DDR3 SDRAM at 1600MHz, a 500GB 7200RPM SATA II hard drive, 8x Super-Multi drive and Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n with Bluetooth. The computer also ships with a Targus clamshell carrying case.
The notebook will also have goodies to include a memory card reader, fingerprint lock, HDMI, Ethernet, 2 megapixel webcam and 8-cell battery. The notebook measures in at 16.5 x 11.54 x 1.55-1.96 inches and weighs in at 8.60 pounds. Of course, with these nice specs comes a big price tag. The Bonobo Extreme is $1,499.
