Re: Laptop Recommendations?

I bought an hp pavilion second hand last year, not that I was really in the market for a laptop but the price was right. The unit is 3 or 4 years old now but still like new. It has an Athlon k7 running at 1.7 Ghz and 768 megs of ram and an ati video card (previous owner was a gamer). It came with a windows install disk but I immediately installed sarge on it and I haven't looked back.

Similar experience...I recently picked up a new HP Pavilion (dv2130us), mainly because of its small size/weight. I use it mostly with Windows (main app is Windows only), but for yucks I swapped out the hard disk and installed Kubuntu dapper. Install was very smooth, and all of the traditional trouble areas (wifi, suspend, hibernate, etc.) worked perfectly "out-of-the-box." I was impressed :)
