Great and useful list, but I think it will be much better if we help to
update it. Regarding the two vendors in your list having Spain (ES) as

- Gnuinos (http://www.gnuinos.com/): At this moment, at least in the
website, they are offering only two (2) computers models (desktop/tower)
without OS. No netbooks, no laptops, no barebones. But two is more than
- Tuxbrain (https://www.tuxbrain.net/): In 07/05/2012 they decided to
stop selling, as they say in their blog:

I've found also a link that does not work for me: 

- Ahtec (http://www.ahtec.nl/): Does not work from my computer.

In the other hand, you can add some more Spanish vendors:

- Ahtec (http://www.ahteconline.com/): Sells laptops and desktops that
can be bought without OS.
- Azken Muga (http://www.azkenmuga.es/): Workstations and mobile
workstations with Linux.
- Imavisions (http://www.imavisions.com/;
http://portatilesconlinux.com/): Sells laptops with Linux (but it seems
the site is not updated since September 2012).
- Linux Ocasion (http://www.linuxocasion.net/): Servers and some
workstations (mainly second hand) with Linux.
- Linux Store (http://www.linuxstore.es/): Desktops (and one laptop)
without OS or with Linux.
- Mountain (http://www.mountain.es/): Desktops, workstations, servers
and laptops without OS or with Linux.

I agree,... but I'd like to be able to buy a laptop without OS in any
computers shop.
