>>From time to time I have been casually searching the web for Linux based models available in Sydney.  The only ones I can find are 701s.  If you have links, please let me know.  I think the general consensus is that Asus has got what it wanted from Linux.    

The helpful salesman, at one store, said that other than the 701, they only carried
the Windows models, but that I may be able to find a smaller independent store
who could/would obtain a linux version for me.

There was a discussion on SLUG about possible retailers but I  don't recall any
confirmations of purchase.
