I want a computer with the Linux Operating System. I don't like my computer that uses Windows because it crashes so often, doesn't recognize my SanDisk half the time, and has so many updates when I shut it down.

Well, android is mostly based on Linux afaik, so just buy a tablet or something like that. Officially you probably won't be able to buy a PC with Linux though, but you can install the OS at home or find someone willing to help IMO.

My store (small business owner) sells custom Linux PCs...

Also, Dell, Lenovo, and Acer sell (or have sold at some point) PCs, Workstations, and Servers with Linux pre-installed.

The easiest solution though is to just buy a DiY kit computer from Newegg, TigerDirect, or similar and then install Linux on it.
If you want a new computer that is. Otherwise, just install Linux on your existing one as everyone else said already Wink I recommend Mageia or Linux Mint. Both of which offer "Live" versions that you can burn to a CD or DVD (depends on disc image size) and try on your computer before you install.
