    I've retitled your thread to make it look less like spam. I've also moved it to a more appropriate forum.

    In the future, you may want to keep in mind that threads titled Have you seen this?, posted in the Community Marketplace with only a link and no explanation... might get jailed right away.

    Yeah great, $50 more expensive than the Windows Installed Version.

    Just out of curiosity, can you link to the equivalent system with Windows on it?

    No Problem.
    This is the E520 Version.

    I also wonder how certain they are that all the hardware will work with a Linux Distro.
    Would that make it "Not Fit For Purpose" if you bought it and couldn't get a driver for one of the bits of hardware?
