A word of caution: a few years ago, I bought a (supposedly) Linux laptop
from www.emperorlinux.com, and it was a huge disappointment. Just
because a company claims that they're selling something "specifically
intended to run Linux" doesn't mean that it actually works well. (In my
case, many features weren't working at all, and the remaining features
were made working by collecting various workarounds from all over the
internet and spreading them all over the file system so that on system
upgrades they'd randomly break things).
