 HP's NX5000 Linux notebook

"List price shown this week for the configuration above was $1,480 for the Linux version and $1,505 for Windows. Taking the least expensive alternative -- including simply excluding some items -- I was able to get the price down to $1,120 with Linux preloaded. There are a few differences between NX5000 models configured for Linux and those configured for Windows. From a hardware point of view, writable DVD drives are an option only for Windows, not for Linux. Also in hardware, the Linux version uses a different internal modem and wireless NIC than does the Windows model."
