HP's New Laptop is Smitten with the Penguin

Hewlett-Packard's new notebook has got a thing for flightless waterfowl -- particularly the open-source breed.

The company has announced that they will be the first large PC maker to offer a business notebook computer with Linux pre-installed.

The H-P Compaq nx5000 will feature Novell Inc.'s SuSE Linux and will market for around $1,140.
