Re: researching before possible laptop purchase
Check out www.linux-laptop.net. They have documentation (submitted by
users, mostly) about installing just about any distro on any model
laptop out there. It's a good site to peruse when you're looking for
info about how tricky a linux install might be on a particular model.

I'm considering trolling ebay for a cheap laptop. I'm basically interested
in setting up a portable c++ compiler/debugger (work on code on the train

bare-bones debian system (supporting hds, floppies ferinstance, but probably
not networking.. no email, or games) onto
so, here for the FM pointer requests
is there anything I should read that might discuss danger hardware to avoid?
is there anything I should read that might discuss basic laptop hardware
that's easy for debian to deal with?
is there anything I should read before attempting to purchase a laptop that
could help in my decision-making process?
is there anything I should read before installing if I've only ever
installed debian on a desktop computer?
