I’m excited because this weekend I’m getting another laptop. I’ve gone through quite a few laptops some of which have been more Linux friendly than others. I have been happy with my last two Toshiba laptops (Portege 4010 and Tecra M2) but this time I am buying a used Lenovo Thinkpad.
I was very happy with my last upgrade, from a 933MHz with 512MB of ram, to a 1.7GHz with 768MB ram that was recently upgraded to 1GB. The performance increase was phenomenal. Now moving from a 1.7GHz to am Intel Core 2 Duo should provide another greatly needed performance increase.
