They have Canadian systems but they limit the builds that can be
configured with Ubuntu. I'm guessing it depends on driver support so
you can't get any old system with Ubuntu installed.

Speaking of which, a couple Dell deals posted to redflagdeals this
afternoon that come configured with Ubuntu. Ones a Celeron and the
other a ULV processor, have 14" or 13" screens, and are $300 or $500,
respectively. So unless you're strictly looking for an atom system
with very small form factor then these might fit the bill. Not sure
how long the sales are good for.
