The problem
by Lumbergh on Mon 6th Dec 2004 16:21 UTC

Eugenia puts up these reviews of pre-loaded linux laptops every once in a while, and the common theme is always that they are way overpriced for what you get.

I can only see a very niche market for these things, and that is a corporate customer that needs something fast. The home guy will just install linux himself on the better price/performance of a Dell or something else, and most businesses will just have an IT guy install linux.
