    Buying a Refurbished Laptop running Knoppix

    My goal is to buy a refurbished laptop running Knoppix, OpenOffice and other individual productivity software (games, music). I want to liberate myself from Windows XP SP2 by shifting to Knoppix.

    Are there vendors out there who specialize in loading Knoppix on a refurbished laptop and selling it as a system?

    Please share any pointers.

    *Linux Certified, the 3rd link, lists refurbs at their site. As far as loading knoppix you'll have to
    check with the vendors. I suspect that they'd prefer to install debian. Less support headaches?

    I like Apple's ibook & powerbook but linux on ppc is way behind x86
