All laptops and desktops are assembled at our US facility. This means taxes are not included in the prices shown. The taxes depend on the final destination of the goods rather than where the order was assembled. Orders going outside the US will therefore have any local taxes collected on delivery.

Note: 3D acceleration is depended on a recent version of X. Ubuntu 13.10, Linux Mint 15 Cinnamon, Fedora 19, and other modern desktop distributions have this. Debian 7, CentOS 6, Ubuntu 12.04 (without the LTS Enablement Stack, or 12.04.x update), and similar distributions do not. If your preferred choice does not you may have to wait for a new release for full hardware support. Distributions including: Trisquel 7, Ubuntu 14.04+, openSUSE 13.2+, Linux Mint 17+, Peppermint Linux 5+, Lubuntu 14.04+, Kubuntu 14.04+, Fedora 20, and other recent distributions work 'out of the box'. Contact us if you have any questions about your particular flavour/version.
