I went to them because they were recommended by several members on this
mailing list, and was not disappointed. They sell IBM/Lenovo machines
which have a reputation for reliability, and the parent company is known
to be friendly to Linux. I believe the machines arrive at LE without
Ubuntu so they have to be unpacked, software installed, tested, and
repacked. This will cost money so I was prepared to pay a little more.
Also as a relatively new user at the time I needed the the guarantee
that everything had been fully tested and would work without problems,
as it has for the last thirteen months despite everything my family has
thrown at it. Finally the after sales support has been excellent, and
you know that you are dealing with Linux enthusiasts.
