buying a computer thats good for linux

what would be a good computer for Linux

I was thinking of getting an sn41g2 shuttle but i was not sure how linux would run on it

I know the shuttle will cost a bit more but I think it is worth it

Any ideas

First link(Cheap Linux Box) is dead fancypiper.

Oh yeah I almost forgot. If you buy a pc from say BestBuy or any pre-built pc make sure the first thing you do is rip off the "Designed For WindowsXP" sticker. This will increase performance.
