I plan to buy a laptop with Iris Pro 5200 from a linux friendly shop (preferably in Europe).
I have found two shops in Germany and two shops in the US selling laptops with Iris Pro 5200.
From the pictures and the technical data, these laptops look the same, except that the reported dimensions of the screens and of the laptops themselves are slightly different with an advantage for the US laptops:
Is this a mistake or can it really be that they have slightly different screen size and case dimensions?
I also find the depth of the laptop (25 cm) quite large for 14 inches: I have seen 15 inches laptops with 23 cm depth.
Apart from the dimensions, in the Tuxedo book you can only have an mSATA SSD as the second disk, whereas in Galapago UltraPro, you can choose mSATA for your first or only drive.
Do you know of any other shops (preferably in Europe) selling laptops with Iris Pro 5200?
I was thinking of buying one of these myself, but the many complaints about the keyboard (and general workmanship) and the awful mobility put me off. The new MacBook Pro 15" has the same CPU, better battery performance and a much better screen, albeit more expensive and Apple branded.
