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.

I think most people on here wouldn't have touched it with a barge pole, the good price only adding to the suspicions. Its like cars, if there is two identical cars for sale but one is 2,000 cheaper then the other, theres always a reason, the people selling these things arn't dumb, they know the market worth of these things, to offer it cheaper something has to give. You say there should be more information? I agree but that is why most people wouldn't have dared send of money to a total unknown. I agree you should have got all those things, but that was the risk you took, I'd have cancelled the order way, way before you did
