Re: Laptop suggestions
i've used a thinkpad 600, 365XD and currently a 240. the 240 is the best
of the bunch, and can be had on ebay for less than $700 (if you're
looking for an ultalight)
the windmodem in the 240 was even easy to get working (considering i'd
never used a modem under linux before in 2 years of using it). and the
soundcard is supported in the kernel (a lot of laptops cards work very
poorly under the OSS drivers).
anyhow, thats my thoughts.
