Hi,
I am interested in Linux preinstalled(of course cheap!) laptops. Any recommendations?
I found System76 (https://www.system76.com/) and ZaReason(http://zareason.com/shop/home.php) have good review.

Why not just buy (or re-use) a cheap Windows laptop and install Linux yourself? That way you'll have a much wider choice of machines. There are plenty of great Linux distributions that are really easy to get started with. I really like Linux Mint, for example, but Ubuntu is another very popular distro for beginners.
