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.
