Tux Machines (TM)-specific
I am thinking of purchasing a new Linux machine, probably a desktop or laptop, and wanted to share the process of searching for a machine. My first thought was to simply visit Dell, HP and other standard manufacturers however I discovered a whole range of companies that I have never heard of when doing a simple search.
On Google, I entered “buying linux machine” and came up with a host of new companies to consider and a great link via Slashdot to the Berkeley Linux User Groups site, Where to Buy a Preinstalled Linux Desktop/Laptop.
With all these new options I wanted to find a site comparing the machines to better evaluate these hardware providers.
