Re: suggestions for a 64 bit laptop?

On the battery life:
On the emachines, if you don't have CPU frequency and power management turned on, you get about 2 hours. If you run the machine flat out, doing heavy numeric computation without any pause or let up, 90 minutes.
However, in normal use under Debian with freq/power mgmt, I get 3 hours.
Since these numbers are due to chipset, I suspect they're generic.

Hello, I am a happy pure64 user on the desktop, and I would like to get a 64 bit laptop/desktop replacement as well. However, it looks like the models with large displays (15", more than 1280x1024) are only available with Intel 32 bit cpus (e.g. Dell), and vice versa. Any suggestions for a good Athlon64 laptop with a large display? Possibly one which is _known_ to work well with pure64?

I've had my Acer Aspire 1524WLMi just three weeks and it's just about

On balance, I think it's a brilliant piece of kit ;)
