Hello I hope that is not OT for this list.
Basically I'm on the hunt for a newish laptop on which I
to run Debian. I'm a student and I spend most of my daily
computer time reading pdfs, writing LaTeX docs, surfing and
light coding, no heavy duty stuff in other words. I use i3vm and
generally like to keep things as light and minimal as feasibly
I really value light weight and good battery life and my upper
bound on prize
is somewhere around 875$ (~7K SEK). Memory should be greater
equal to 2GB and an sdd would be nice.
I know very little about hardware and I'm not quite sure where
or how to
start looking. I though the Lenovo Thinkpad 13 looked promising
but it's a bit
over my price target. Could chromeboosk be something to look
know the older thinkpads has good debian support but if I
correctly they are also very heavy.
As a small reference: I made due with a Asus EEE PC 1005HA for a
of years and it generally worked well for my purposes but it
surfing was a pain so I'm looking to upgrade a bit from that.
Check out ebay for something like a Thinkpad X230 or a Thinkpad
T430 with an IPS HD+ screen. I know in sweden availability might
be an issue so check out T440 or T450 prices too.
