Re: Debian laptop vendors
I am also looking to buy a new notebook similar spec to what you are looking
for. I don't know anyone who is selling laptops with Debian preinstalled but
I have been checking out Fujitsu's new Lifebook P2046/1032/1035 series
I specifically like the P1032/1035 with it's touch screen.
I don't think anybody has done a write up for installing Debian on these yet
so I might do just that.
However, battery life is very good. The p1035 has built in 802.11b or the
P1032 has 10/100 built in instead. But both are really small.
The P2046 is a little larger with built in CD/DVD/CDRW ROM and it has both
802.11b and 10/100.
I will probably be getting the P1032, unless anybody on this list can
convince me otherwise. It looks like a worthy replacement for my old Toshiba
I would be interested to know what you think of these Fujitsu notebooks
before I go ahead and order one.
