I'm gonna need a laptop, and the one I have is too large for my liking. I am just curious as to whether or not I should get a windows laptop and install Ubuntu, or take the extra time to find one with Ubuntu already? Do you guys have any suggestions for laptops around $500?

    If you take a laptop with Windows just to remove it, then it's better if you buy one without any operating system and you install your favorite distro on it. In my opinion a copy of windows is always useful, so you can consider to keep both.

    If you are looking a laptop with *ubuntu* already installed, you'll have hard time finding it

    @crisz I believe Dell has a couple of laptops that ship with Ubuntu preinstalled. not sure about the price though

    Look for one with windows already, be far easier because you'll pretty much be limited to sell for Ubuntu pre installed laptops

    I'm a big fan of lenovo thinkpads, works great with linux (most models are certified for RHEL but works great with debian as well)
