I checked out some of the resellers who feature Linux systems but I'm not sure that's the way to go, I don't like their choice of distro. Come to think of it, I'd like to buy a brand new, sleek & sexy model for at home and want to buy it with a "no OS" option. What's the best way to shop for hardware when it comes to Linux?"
