I woud like to purchase a new computer, and I want it to come preconfigured (as in out-of-the-box) with XP Pro, Linux (any distribution, the more ubiquitous the better), and a decent warranty already on it. Its pretty hard to find machines that fit that description so I'll leave out any hardware requirements (obviously good to awesome specs would be ideal)

Does anyone have any links to companies that are selling & shipping (I am in the NorthEast US) machines like this?

Thank you for your advice, though I've already looked locally. Sadly, I could find no computers like that that are available in my area.

Does anyone have an LTC (link to content) for a computer 4 sale online ?

If you're looking for recommendations, I cannot give that since I have not used these companies

If you are looking for only links, here are a few to get you started

I think you're best bet is to find yourself a custom PC shop locally and have them set it up for you. Anyone with a little tech saavy can do it and I'm sure they would handle it for you, but since there is little demand for such a machine, they don't exactly advertise
