Nigel Computers in Burlington will build a custom computer without an 
operating system. I wouldn't be surprised if he also sells unencumbered 
laptops. Nigel told me that he has the support of the local Linux 
community for that position. (Anyone here from a Burlington LUG?)

Sadly, the Web site offers no pricing on most items, so I've passed over 
his store when gathering purchase proposal quotes for clients.  
Retailers, take note! No prices, no RFQ!
