Sounds like a good move!

Be sure to feed back to here what it turns out to be...

These LinuxCertified people don't sound particularly helpful, btw.

If they're in the States (as I assume they are?) then perhaps they're
not bound by UK and European law and they can sell laptops that die
weeks after being delivered and then say to the "victim" that it's
nothing to do with them?

Sounds very poor practice to me.

Have you thought about writing to the Linux Foundation alerting them
to how the "Linux" brand is being used?  Who knows... Linus might even
turn up to fix it for you...
