System76 is a small computer company in Denver that puts together
their servers/desktops/laptops/netbooks specifically with linux
(Ubuntu) in mind. They come preinstalled with Ubuntu. Their stuff
might cost a little more than Dell, but not too much. Plus it's
helping out the small linux companies. If you buy from them, you know
it'll work great with Ubuntu - probably any linux for that matter.
