Okay, some detail this time ;-)
On the workstation side there's DNUK of course.
In Stockport there's uklinux.net with workstations, including
low power-consumption boxes.
Then down the M6 there's linuxemporium.co.uk, who carry most of the
ThinkPad range :)
Then there's Matthew in Tamworth:
They also supply thin-client solutions.
HP do plenty of Workstations and servers with GNU/Linux (usually
Red Hat) pre-installed, but the only laptop option has FreeDOS on it!
Several of the smaller box-shifters who advertise in e.g. MicroMart
will supply a box with no OS. MD, opposite the hospital, has already
been mentioned. Also take a tour around Bowlers next Saturday :-)
Lastly, if it's for a VCO, we'll be giving hardware away with support
