Does anyone know of some good places to buy computers (desktops and laptops) which run fine with a FSF endorsed GNU/Linux distribution.

My current list:
ThinkPenguin
Purism
Minifree
Vikings

Anything else I should know about?

@JackTorrence Thanks! This seems to sell the same stuff minifree, but some seem to be more expensive.

@masterofthetiger
You can buy a thinkpad on ebay and install libreboot and a FSF endorsed distro on it by yourself.

@JackTorrence I know that. I found some and discovered that I wouldn't be saving much money in comparison to buying one from Minifree.

@luckykit Yeah, that's a bit old. I will probably end up buying that though anyway.

@masterofthetiger I would recommend going on Ebay or Amazon and finding a refurbished desktop PC like this: v.ht/gVUe

@PetabyteStudios I am not sure you understand what I am asking. I am looking for something which doesn't require any nonfree firmware to use WFi or anything else on it. Does that computer use Intel wireless?

@etam It seems like their computers use Intel WiFi, which means they probably require nonfree firmware to use. 😞
