Well, I again didn't find anything through search on here so I'm hoping this is "new".
If there's anyone out there interested in buying systems that have never been touched by windows and/or can come with Linux distros instead; this thread is for you. Since everyone knows where they can get a windows or mac powered computer I thought I'd start a thread where people can find computers that come with Linux installed. I'm sure there are more out there so if you want to contribute more companies I'd be more than happy to add your additions in here.Unless otherwise stated assume support and warranty are covered.Mainstream types of computers:System76

Feel free to thank him for it.These are "Free" as stripped of all software that you don't have access to the source code and therefore wouldn't be free to share, study, and modify.
