    I run Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pengolin on my laptop Dell Lattitude E4300 and everything just works. For once there is hardware problem with Windows. It’s just a ‘wow’ moment for me, when I booted up after installation and run terminal – sudo apt-get update. The 3G modem worked, I was married and I got shitty audio from the speakers when watching Youtube. Thank you Richard Stallman and Linus Torvalds for this great OS. And yes, Mark Wood shuttle (?). For the preparation of Ubuntu

    @ ComputerGuy890100 Chromium is the latest “bleeding edge” of Chrome build. Chrome is the stable version. Chrome is essentially open source, like what goes into Chromium, if stable, make it into the next version of Chromium. At least that is how the Linux version works

    This review is from: (posted about 4 days after my order) CyberpowerPC Gamer Ultra GUA250 AMD FX-4100 Gaming Desktop PC (personal computer)

    delivery was fast. Started after checking cables, motherboard, fans and the PC booted up and its OS without issues asked.Smooth .. No bloatware always in the machine, and I received all of my full recovery, graphics and OS disks.The first video graphics card was sent weak (Geforce GT 520), but gt after the upgrade with a cheap Nvidia 440 there was a noticeable boost. memory and quad core work beautifully together on cute little Gigabyte Micro ATX board.Very light and quiet machine compared to my last response (a customized old Gateway). Great price, but plan to upgrade video cards.Awesome machine and well said together.Id recommend any novice mid level players / graphics creator.

    This review is from: CyberpowerPC Gamer Ultra GUA250 AMD FX-4100 Gaming Desktop PC (personal computer)

    I have this computer for a week now I origionally bought this computer. need to replace my 12 year old macintosh.I a PS3 for games., the fact that this computer can play games well was just a bonus.
    There was no bloat ware is running super fast. Takes about 30 seconds or less to boot. I just wanted to see what the computer was capable of so I filed down. Opened five windows with film tralers Streaming in HD, played a DVD movie and had halo running at the same time., the computer does not so much as a hiccup.
    All that I can say is that it’s better to keep computers out there to play, but for the price and capabilities of this is to have a great PC. Do not hesitate to buy one .. they sold out Great job CyberPower

    This PC is a great deal for the money that I wind up changing the video card with ASUS GeForce GT 440 (Fermi) 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card, ENGT440/DI/1GD5 and now He plays most of the games on Steam with ZERO LAG.
