    1. “finding laptops with preinstalled laptops is sometimes a challenge”

    i should imagine, yes. it must be.

    2. “Canonical has a well established business desktop scenario”

    that first statement made more sense, sorry.

    i’ll read the rest another day.
    and, i don’t really need preinstalled anything. i buy “no os” or sue the vendor if i can’t :)
    i recommend thinkpads to go with linux. highly compatible.
    cheerio.

    You might want to check the price on the ZaReason laptop — I think it’s $699, not $6999. As a ZaReason user — I just bought one — I would say that it’s an excellent choice.

    Here is a review I did of the ZaReason Alto 3880 Ubuntu Laptop.  It was awesome, overall.  http://www.thepowerbase.com/2012/01/zareason-alto-3880-review-fastest-1000-14-laptop/

    I will not buy from System 76 again. they sent me a dead laptop, and never did replace it.

    terrible customer service.

    I think those steampunk laptops are $5500 rather than $500. I guess people who get those just have money to burn.

     Canonical has a well established business desktop scenario 

    What the heck does this mean?
    Scenario?
    They have a business plan?
    Wow.

    The article you link to is talking about the Remix they released.

    There are a lot of companies selling Linux laptops. There is only one selling laptops and other hardware with 100% free software support though and that is ThinkPenguin. And this is by far the most important thing if you want good support. Particularly down the road.

    You can test your Linux laptop with one of these distributions:

    Chances are you are going to have a problem later as nobody else is paying attention to the freedom bit.
