    I'm not sure what you meant by "brand-name computer", but since you're presumably going to be using Linux on your new machine, I'd suggest that you consider System76 and ZaReason, both of which build a variety of machines using Linux, in particular, Ubuntu.

    Anyone else care to suggest a Linux- or Ubuntu-oriented manufacturer?

    System 76 wont ship outside the US and Canada-

    We only ship within the United States and Canada. We offer Ground, 3 Day, 2nd Day, and Next Day shipping options to addresses within the United States. Most orders ship via UPS however occasionally an order will ship via DHL.
