The Terra A20 is the first netbook by ZaReason, a Linux hardware builder based in Berkeley, California. The Terra A20 has a 10" matte LCD screen and is powered by an 1.6 GHz Intel Atom N270 processor. It comes with the Intel GMA 950 chipset, a 640x480 Webcam, 3 USB ports, SD memory card slot, VGA port, Ethernet port, headphone and mic jacks, and a battery that lasts up to 3.5 hrs.
The standard configuration includes 1GB RAM, 160 GB hard drive, 802.11b/g/draft-n WiFi for US $349.00 at the time of writing. Different hardware options for extra charge such as 320GB or 500GB hard disk drives or 16GB, 80GB, or 160GB solid state drives can be selected on the Terra A20 product page.
The Terra A20 can be ordered with pre-installed Ubuntu 9.04, Kubuntu 9.04, Edubuntu 9.04 or no operating system at all, which is an option I'd like to see more often.
ZaReason began as a volunteer organization and is committed to environmentally friendly production by selecting low power consuming hardware and recycling hardware. Apart from the Terra A20, ZaReason builds laptops, desktops, and servers running on Ubuntu Linux or derivatives like Kubuntu, Edubuntu, or Ubuntu Studio.
