I'm looking to buy a ~10inch screen netbook that works with Ubuntu. That's probably the easy bit. There are dozens of good options available.
Unfortunately, everything I look at is shackled to its own copy of Windows. I don't believe in paying for something I'm not going to use (unless it's cheaper than any other option).
So far the only thing that really checks the boxes is the Lemur UltraThin from System76 but it's a US company and while they do deliver to the UK now, it would likely rack up import taxes, VAT, etc... Paired with an exchange rate that can go either way, and it looks like it could be a bit expensive.
So I'm looking for UK-based options. Around £400. 7-13" screen (as long as it's small). Either running Ubuntu (or something that can be replaced by Ubuntu) or naked. Obviously with good Linux support... And modern hardware that will last a couple of years.
