RE: Used Laptop Reccomendations for Sarge
Thinking about getting a used laptop and loading sarge into it. I was
wondering what specs I need to look for (or, actually getting models to
look for.) What kind of memory, disk size, and processor do I need (or,
wont work on sarge.)
Depends on the money you´d like to spend. I can recommend
http://tuxmobil.org/ or/and http://www.linux-on-laptops.com/.
Also, I want to be able to dial into the internet through a regular phone
line when away from home. This would be a primary purpose for getting it
for me. I remember when I first came to linux, it was a big deal for me to
replace my old winmodem with a full modem, which at the time cost me $200
at compusa. Will I have similar problems with a laptop, and if so how does
somebody replace a laptop's modem?
If you are exited bout having a fully functional modem please look at
BTW: I bought a used Thinkpad R51 half a year ago. 512MB RAM, 40 GB
Harddisk. Everything I´d like to have works - mostly out of the box. I use
my modem very seldom but it works as well.
