    I've heard IBM, excuse me: Lenovo, is offering SLED on their line of Thinkpads. Might be something to consider.

    buy a used laptop on Ebay. use the filter and find one within 25 miles then e-mail the guy and see if you can go look at it before you buy. most people will even cut out the shipping costs if you go pick it up. i've gotten 3 laptops and 2 cell phones that way.

    Pricewatch has a listing for laptops with no OS. Do they ship to the UK and would it be worth it to have them do so?
