tree program on it and take it for a trip out East this spring. He has
seen me running Linux on my desktop for years and thinks he would like

cheap (a typical Winnipegger) he is only willing to spend $200 -$300 for
the machine. There are some "deals" in the advertising for Staples,
Future Shop, and (Ugh) Best Buy. He is serious enough to risk going out
on Boxing day (and this is from a guy who is afraid of crossing to the
West side of the Red).
The question is what are some good brands and locations to scope out?
