I’m not quite sure why you would rather spend more money because an institution sells only Linux machines. I no nothing of System76 but I can tell you that they are, after all, a company that is out for a profit just as much as Dell, HP or IBM. I would look at purchasing a laptop of your choice and putting your preferred distro on it. For example, if you want to buy a Dell laptop with Winders on it then ask for the $50 rebate and install your favorite flavor of Linux. You paying an extra penny to System76 isn’t supporting the community, it’s you paying more. Just my two cents.

If you have the ability
to not go for the lowest price, I say System76 is a go. They have very positive
reviews in places like the Linux Journal. Their "Darter" laptop
is purdy...very purdy. :)

I know about Dell. I didn't think they had really started yet though. I
guess I kind of wanted to support a company that truly uses Linux alone.
