Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

No. You put it yourself. Computers are hardware; you're talking about software. You want Mint, you install it yourself.
Or, you can buy from here: https://www.system76.com/

I got ordered & have now received some "powered by" stickers.

I got some for - Mepis && Mint && Ubuntu

they now cover the "vista installed" sticker that was on several laptop's :)

- the 'Intel' sticker is still visible - though . ..



got'em from the local auction's - IT equipment

who cares - what was on'em before - they had been wiped & sent to auction - where I got'em :)

that's EIGHT LINUX powered laptops !!
:D :D :D

Just order your laptop from Brazil. Even the big name computer makers sell their new computers with Linux on them there.

Some people on the planet refuse to buy computers if they have Microsoft on them.

A couple of computer vendors do sell laptops installed with Linux Mint. A good place to start looking is: http://linuxpreloaded.com/
