Opinions sought: SW Technologies and VA Research PCs

Post by d.. » Fri, 29 Mar 1996 04:00:00



Hi all,

        I am ready to buy a Linux-ready PC, and I am going to go with
a vendor that will set up a system for me (no hardware headaches)
specifically designed for use with Linux. (Linux pre-installed)

I have been considering two vendors:
 VA Research  http://www.varesearch.com/catalog.html#systems

 SW Technology   http://www.swt.com/

If anyone has had any dealings with these companies, please let me
know as soon as possible. Are they reliable? Good support?

I am considering a 200 MHz Pentium Pro.

Thanks,

Derrick
