I am interested in Linux preinstalled(of course cheap!) laptops. Any recommendations?
I found System76 ( and ZaReason( 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.

No more Blub for me, thank you, Vicar.
