Where can I buy a Ubuntu netbook from Chicago-area retail?

I want to get a little laptop/net book, yes I know I could get it online but I've been looking out for some preloaded linux netbooks but have not found any luck so far.

And I dont want to buy a netbook with windows to just to put ubuntu on. I dont want to give Windows my money.

go to tigerdirect.com. naperville based, ships everywhere. call them up if you have trouble finding what you need. btw you will pay sales tax buying instate. you may find a better deal sometimes from newegg.com

Why not go to Microcenter on Elston Ave. and just buy a refurbished Netbook for $200 and install Ubuntu onto it. You can look at what they have at the Elston Ave store on the Microcenter website before you go.

Well this is online, should ship to your area, though It probably wouldn't be considered a notebook, it is however light and cheap:
