Vendors in general:
Local Bay Area hardware vendors (_and_ other Linux-related businesses):
Necessary disclaimer: I have no connection with any of the firms on
either page, except that I was once employed by a couple in the BALE
page's 'In Memoriam' section. I am _maintainer_ of both pages. And
here is the bad part: I am not in a position to tell you whether or not
I could recommend any of the firms mentioned from my own personal
knowledge (i.e., give you advice), so you'll have to be the judge.
Many appear to be happy with ZaReason, Los Alamos Computers, Emperor
Linux, and Linux Certified as laptop vendors.
