SuSE, openSUSE Wouldn't it be great to just get a PC with Linux already installed and ready to go? Novell thinks that's a grand idea too, and on Oct. 25 announced agreements with four white-box PC manufacturers who will globally distribute PCs preloaded with SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10. Novell's new PC vendors are European manufacturers ETegro Technologies, MAXDATA and Transtec, along with the U.S. PC OEM R Cubed Technologies. Each will sell notebooks and/or desktop PCs preloaded with SLED 10.

l3v1:Well, actually, I'd like more to be able to finally buy laptops (I'd say desktops too, buy I never buy pre-built PCs) without any OS whatsoever which should really show in their price too. And I mean quality laptops from big names, not some noname laptops. And I expect that if a laptop costs x+os price, then I should be able to buy the same laptop for x, and not at the same price, for a higher price, or not be able to buy at all. I don't think I'm asking too much.

No, you are not asking too much, just head over to the HP page and check out the HP Compaq business laptops such as the nx6325 or nc63110. You can get them with FreeDOS for about 50$ less than with MS Windows XP Pro.

EDIT: Of course i meant nc6310.
