HP recently released a Compaq notebook that comes preloaded with SuSE Linux. The price starts at $1199 (US). Its got the Intel Pentium M processor (no AMD option, sadly), a DVD/CDRW combo drive, and a wireless nic. Of course, they have “HP recommends Microsoft® Windows® XP Professional” all over their site, and the notebook by default is configured with WinXP, but this is a pretty good sign for desktop Linux, in my opinion.
