I like ThinkPenguin and heard of others, but I'd say a tie between Ministry of Freedom, Libiquity (whom I had install LibreBoot on my Thinkpad T500,) Technoethical, because they offer PCs with fully-Free/Libre software down to the BIOS (LibreBoot) & CPU (at least disabling Intel Management Engine, ME) levels... very significant, so are they overlooked, or does even one other on the list do this?

My most recent computer is a ZaReason Asus AMD. It's the best computer I've ever had.

If Steam Machines had worked out, then Alienware would be on the list.

Oh well.

Don't forget about Purism. I won't vote, because I would rather build my own, so I haven't tried any vendors; but I was looking at Purism, and it as their prices that made me opt to build my own; nevertheless, they could be on this list.

I think you might want to check out this episode of The Lunduke Show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MujjuTWpQJk&t=1274s

In it, Bryan Lunduke interviews two System76 employees about System76's effort to disable the Intel ME on all of its computers. So far, System76 has succeeded in disabling the Intel ME on all of its laptops. All of the current System76 laptops ship with Intel ME disabled out-of-the-box. Older ones can be easily remediated by means of the tool mentioned in this blog post. They have yet to finish preparing that fix for their desktops, but they're working on it. The other topic of the video is System76's effort to make their computers with open hardware so they can be used with entirely free software. One of the System76 guys also said that they're planning on replacing the proprietary BIOS with either Coreboot or Libreboot. The video is an hour long, but I think it's worth that amount of time to find out about a future line of libre laptops.
