Pick A Nice Computer To Run Linux On For Your Ham Shack

 You can build your own computer to run your favorite Linux Distribution on. It takes a little bit of know how, but you can do it. There are plenty of websites out there that can provide information about putting together a excellent computer. I would go on Amazon and look for the parts you will need. Here is a brief list below.
  1. Computer Case
  2. Motherboard (Intel or Amd) amd tends to be cheaper in price.
  3. Microprocessor ( Intel or Amd depending on the Motherboard)
  4. DDR3 Memory or newer. I would suggest 4gb of Memory or more.
  5. 1tb Sata Hard Drive or Solid State Hard Drive.
  6. Monitor, Mouse and Keyboard
  7. Speakers
  8. DVD Burner or Blueray Optical Drive.
  9. Linix Distribution such as Mint, Ubuntu, Zorin or Many Others
  10. Printer (Optional)
 Now if you do not want to build a computer there are many excellent computers at Amazon to pick from. I would just make sure to check out the reviews first before purchasing. Just because a computer comes with Windows 7, 8, 8.1 or 10 you can always wipe it and run Linux. There is also the option of setting it up as a dual boot system. I would just make a back up of the system before doing this in case you change your mind. Make sure to have an external hard drive to place the back up on.
