I'm looking to buy a knew laptop. I have been recommended by a few
people to look at the Lenovo thinkpad X 200 and t 400/500. What are your
thoughts on these systems? What is positive, what is negative?
What other brands should I consider Del and HP don't seem to be as
powerful as these Lenovos, but maybe I'm wrong. What should I consider
with good linux support (debian)? I'm looking at a 12.1 inch system, but
am also happy to buy a 14 inch. I will need something with dual core
2ghz+ cpu and 2 gb+ ram. I also may run virtual machines too.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
I dont often buy systems, I build my own, but laptops are not a DIY
project. I have been shopping for a new laptop to use in my work & what
someone told me to do was: burn a Ubuntu live disk & take it with me
when shopping. Thats what I did & if the machine runs the 'live disk'
then I know I can install debian on it. May take a bit of effort but
I know that it will work.
