I bought three Clevo Notebooks last year without any OS preinstalled, then installed Debian Linux myself. The machines work fine. I also have several Sony C1 and a Sony U1, all with Debian Linux (my currently preferred distribution). However, every time, it's at least a few days of work and searching the web.
Just a few days ago, I noticed this offer from Lycoris/Toshiba:
Sounds interesting. It's a nice Toshiba Portege 3500 with Linux preinstalled. I hope Lycoris has all/most drivers etc. as GPL, especially the modem, graphics card, wifi, touchpad.
Any comments about this offer? Lycoris Desktop L/X?
