The distro is Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Desktop. And it will be on their HP dx2250 series. Its an AMD based solution ranging from Semprons, A64 (single core) to A64 X2s. Red Hat will handle support for the OS. The dx2250 is not really a powerhouse. Uses ATI Radeon® XPRESS 1150 (variant of the Radeon X300), max 2GB RAM, etc in a Microtower package. The target market is small to medium businesses. Prices start at AUD$600 (I'm guessing for the Sempron model). Now, when are we gonna see something for laptops? :-)
