I live in Paris, France. I want to buy a sane non-Apple laptop computer. I require the standard QWERTY keyboard layout: AZERTY blows big rocky chunks. The laptop will run Linux mainly but dual boot some Windows for the occasional game. I would therefore prefer the Windows to be an English version (either UK or US is fine), but this is not that important. I have tried all the major and several minor brand names and none of them allow me to buy non-French-local OS/keyboarded laptops. I have marched up and down rue Montgallet without much success at any of the shady tech bordellos there. No US company will ship to Europe, and I don't trust any friend across the pond to buy one for me and make sure that it runs Linux correctly. Can anyone cut my Gordian knot?
