[lug] Experience with System76

I work with a guy who just bought a laptop from them, and I don't think
it's the first one he's gotten from them. He seems real happy with it. They
use good quality components, and everyone I've talked to that has bought
from them has had a good experience.
I keep looking at them, but I have a hard time swallowing their markup when
I know I'm unlikely to ever need their support. I haven't priced their
desktop or server systems, but all their laptops I've looked at have been
quite a bit higher than what I would pay elsewhere. I know there's the
"supporting Linux businesses" angle, and that keeps me coming back to
considering them, but I just haven't managed to get past that. They are
also based in Denver, so if you buy from them you're not just supporting a
Linux company, you're supporting a local company too.
