Dell notebooks abroad

For a while now, I've considered buying a notebook, and I think my best option would be to get a PC one. However I'm not interested in using Windows on it, and the problem is that notebooks in general aren't working with Linux very well (mainly, if not only, because the manufacturers don't provide proper drivers for the hardware).

Dell now sells notebooks with Ubuntu preinstalled, and of course the hardware is picked to not have any incompatibilities. However, neither the US nor UK sites can ship to Greece, and the Greek site doesn't seem to sell any such computers.

Is there any way I could get a Dell notebook from the USA or the UK, and somehow get it shipped here?

    Do you have an friends or family located in the US or UK that could take the order then ship it to you?

    Im guessing you dont as that would have been the obvious solution i suppose...

    Speak to Dell on the phone, they might be able to arrange something for you

    That's an idea I guess. For the moment I've sent an email to the local part of them, I'll wait for a while to see if they reply.
