Need recommendations for notebook with Linux/X

Post by Andras Meh » Wed, 18 Jan 1995 05:39:07

Looking for suggestions/experience/warnings regarding the purchase of
a notebook computer to be used for running Linux (or NetBSD) with Xfree.
I'm considering the following configuration:

486 DX4-100 or Pentium 90 MHz
min. 16M memory
min. 540 HD (SCSI preferred)
battery life is the first priority (at least 4 hours)
screen is not important (would like to hear opinions on the power consumption
of the different options)
14.4kbps modem (internal or PCMCIA)
Ethernet adaptor (internal or PCMCIA)
Pointing device should be located at the base of the keyboard
(trackball or Apple-style pressure-sensitive pad preferred)

Since I'm not a frequent reader of the newsgroup,
please email me (in addition to posting).

Only thing I can tell is don't buy DUAL systems as they are very irresponsible
when it comes support.



1. Linux/Laptop-Notebook recommendations?

   I'm interested in putting together a Laptop/Notebook system that
will run Linux. I'd like to have an active color display and at least
2 pcmcia slots. I'd also like to have at least 20 Meg of Ram, 340Mb
or greater hard drive and have at least a 486 DX2 processor. I'd
like to receive recommendations as to which laptop system has these
features and can reliably run Linux. Any Input would be greatly
appreciated. Thank you.

   Hard Work and perserverance are more important than raw talent.
