"The first Linux retail computer store will have its grand opening this week giving Linux fans and computer enthusiasts an opportunity to preview and purchase the latest Linux products. Sub500.com located in Toronto, Canada will open its doors on Saturday, June 26th featuring Linspire-based laptops and desktops and the latest Linspire add-on software.

'This is a historical event for the Linux industry and it provides the computer user a full range of affordable desktop Linux products under one roof,' said Michael Robertson, chief executive officer for Lindows, Inc. 'Customers will receive personal attention from Linux experts at the store to educate them on the benefits of Linux versus other operating systems and help them with their Linux purchases.'

Businesses, educational institutions and computer enthusiasts can purchase the latest Linspire desktop ranging in price from $299 to $979cdn and laptop models available from $1,111 to $1,444cdn. Depending on the user's needs, Sub500.com offers a wide range of desktops including the BusinessStation, DesktopSystem and SchoolSystem. Ultralight and deluxe laptop models pre-installed with Linspire 4.5 are also available."

*From the look of the picture on the store's website I don't get the impression they're trying to emulate an Apple store.
