Toshiba has been offering Linux on their laptops in Asian markets for some time, just not in the U.S. or Europe.  They even have an excellent company-sponsored Linux support mailing list in English which I do subscribe to.  Hopefully the announcements by Lenovo, Acer, and Dell will prompt Toshiba to offer Linux worldwide.
