    laptop pre-installed with ubuntu

    Hi folks,
    i'm trying to convert a friend who plans to buy a new laptop, to ubuntu. he doesn't want any fiddling with it himself, and am wondering is anyone selling laptops with ubuntu or other linux pre-installed.
    I've googled this a little bit. Elara.ie sell plenty of tiny laptops with 10" screens. And there is a post on this forum about Dell not actually selling ubuntu computers here despite their adds.
    A list of the most linux happy computers could be quite useful to people who don't want to risk certain drivers not loading.
    thanks,
    Lorcan

    It's hard enough to get a "full-sized" laptop with Linux pre-installed, but many netbooks have it. The Toshiba NB100 (8.9" screen), for example, is available in Ireland (including on Elara), and has Ubuntu Netbook Remix pre-installed on one model (Windows on the other).

    You might also check out https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LaptopTestingTeam where you can look up individual machines and how well they work with Ubuntu.

    Hope that's some help.
