Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

View Poll Results: Linux Desktop/Laptop Vendor of the Year
I voted system76 only because I am finding very good deals on used lemurs on ebay for a fraction of original cost. I have never bought a brand spanking new computer though. So maybe take my vote with a grain of salt.
i never bought from penguin-computing but someone from there did a presentation at my corporation a few years back (something about upgrading ibm s/390 mainframes to redhat, iirc) and gave the participants a tiny tux foam doll with their website on his chest.
i repped you up but do they do direct sales... so far i only see ebay/amazon listings in my quick search. also they seem to be barebones systems whgich are capable of running open-source software but no os (or hard drive) installed.
edit: this is their site where you can customize: http://fitpc.com/
i was serching for fit-pc (which translated to fitbut notpc).
i would also say no hp ?; but there linux based workstations were buried in their business solutions website but they may have been removed.
thanks for the link. i then went to dell.com to look for it but couldnt find it. their operating system dropdown filter only lists windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10, 10-home, 10-pro, ...
also the windows version costs more than $300 cheaper than the ubuntu version.
