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.

You experience is exactly why I am using my 3rd IBM Thinkpad. No, each of them has performed flawlessly. Have even loaded an removed SUSE from one of them. Support is amazing. They even supported a very old 390e that wasn't purchased from them. I would never buy anything else. I agree with others buy a used Thinkpad, you'll be headaches and dollars ahead.
