RE: [SLUG] Laptops with Linux pre-installed?


MSY (www.msy.com.au) sell a lot of 'big name' notebooks.

If you found one from there they might sell it to you with no OS for reduced cost.

I believe that is a netbook grade machine and I am looking for
something closer to the high end. Specifically, Core 2 Duo/Core
i7/latest AMD, 2-4 Gigs ram, 150+ Gig drive with a 13-14 inch
screen at 1280x768 or better.

I would buy a Dell XPS Studio 13 if I could get one with Linux
