Pre-installed Linux vendors
I am considering buying a laptop with linux already installed (probably ubuntu, maybe suse, something easi(er)).
Anyway, there are a plethora of resellers that will do this work, but getting reviews on these sites or getting the right specs on the computers is pretty hard. I have called a few places, and when the questions I ask get too complicated/technical the sales reps flake out. For example, one sales rep didnt even know if the computer he was trying to sell me had a sound card.
Does anyone know of any killer sites that review these 3rd party dealers? I have checked out the stuff on LXer pretty thoroughly. A few of the sites had all the expertise and specs I could want (like emperorlinux.com....but ouch! to the price)
if it would help, here is what i am looking for:
T9300, 4 GB ram, smaller (15 in or less), discrete graphics (nvidia), good sound card. I can find all these features on Windows laptops, but not on any of the pre-installed linux sites
