Is one. $70 less, comes with some inferior distro(1) but it means the 
hardware will be functional with any distro.
lenovo, hp, acer, asus seem to not have linux options anymore. One 
wonders if that's lack of demand or something else. You'd think "and you 
can basically forget about viruses, malware and so on" would be a 
reasonable selling point for a machine that mostly does web, email, 

I'm not being a smart arse here. If avoiding microsoft is your only aim 
apple macs don't have windows by default. I don't think apple are really 
much better than microsoft myself but can't be bothered arguing it.

(1) Joke, relax ;)
