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


I got mine off eSys last year (they have several UK distributers). However, have a look at the famous list that Lxer and cyber_rigger have been accumulating for the past few months (listed as forum thread or as a database).
