Linux When I read the article on Slashdot & OSNews that Linare was putting out a sub-$500 notebook, I immediately jumped on the deal. I purchased a laptop directly from Linare in early February. Their site stated that I would receive the laptop in 2-4 weeks. I waited in anticipation.

If I bought a laptop (the finicky pieces of junk they tend to be) I wouldn't get one without a 3 year parts warranty. I'd happily put an extra 200-300 USD into having a warranty to replace that $400 screen when it randomly dies or $350 motherboard when the intentionally badly engineered power connector breaks.
