The PictureBook, a.k.a Sony VAIO PCG-C1VN

Manufacturer: Sony Electronics, Inc. URL: www.sony.com/vaio Price: $1,899.99+ USD Reviewer: Phil Hughes
Where Do You Get One?

This one came from Emperor Linux with Linux pre-installed. You could buy the system from traditional sources, but you would have to get Linux loaded and running yourself. Doing so is not impossible, but Lincoln at Emperor Linux has been very helpful, and I feel the support has been well worth any price difference.

The only way I know of is to contact Sony and purchase the reload/restore for the C1VN. Or have someone burn you a copy of the C1VN discs.
