Which laptop to buy, that is the question. The requirements are built
in Ethernet (gigabit would be nice), IEEE-1394 (FireWire) and a large
(as in pixels) screen (1400x1050 minimum). I must be able to boot both
Linux and some other well known OS.
I do not care who makes the CPU as long as it is x86, sorry no Macs for
this one. I have had less then happy experiences with Dell, and would
like to stay away from them. I also find Dell's Linux support to be
about worthless. I have bought my last Sony anything because of their
DRM shananagains. I have been happy with my IBM a20p Thinkpad and
before the my Digital HiNote II, but both are just a bit under powered.
Any suggestions on what to buy and where would help.
