Barebones laptop

Postby lurKer » Thu Apr 22, 2010 2:27 pm

Hi,

I'm a little dismayed at the lack of availability of laptops either with a linux distro or even OS free, so I've decided that I'd like to maybe try my hand at building my own laptop.

Does anyone here know of any outlets for sourcing the parts, or any retailers that allow customisation?

Thanks,
lurKer

I guess you must mean none of them are being stocked, as googling "laptops with linux" brings a plethora of links (including one to build your laptop to your spec).

Linuxemporium (qv) seems to be a good staring place.
