ThinkPenguin because they are truly caring about free/open source software
and even donating a good share of their profits to GNU\Linux free software distros.
Also, they are trying their best to ensure that their computers are running
free/open source firmware, unlike e.g. System76 which is like a hyped Dell,
does not even have the open source coreboot BIOS just some crappy proprietary UEFI

I voted System 76 but I only really like their laptops—specifically the Lemur and the new Darter Pro.

I think both are very modern-looking and sleek Linux laptops.

They've really outdone themselves with that Darter Pro, though. Wish I could afford the rig I want though.
