I hadn't heard of them, although buying such a thing internationally would be an expensive pain in the ass to return if there were an in-warranty defect!

Also, as an Ubuntu-user, as I really love the idea of these, but they're ugly and look really cheap: http://i.imgur.com/KGPznQz.jpg

There are other places, like http://www.powernotebooks.com/ and http://www.xoticpc.com/ that have excellent warranties and deal with all the international stuff so you don't have to. Granted they don't come with linux, but you can order them with no OS.

There is also the so-called Windows Refund [0] for everyone else, but it's an absolute pain in the butt to go through (deliberately so), and ends up costing more in time and hassle for a measly refund.

I just have looked up on www.xoticpc.com for a Thinkpad X1 Carbon and there is NO possibility to get it without Windows. So at least for them it is not true.
