View Poll Results: What Brand of Laptop would you buy next?
Money no object / back of a lorry: Powerbook of some description, running 'nix. Mainly because I hate lugging around a slab of manky grey plastic. They're reliable and I've heard good things about running nix on them.
heh if money were no object I'd have to go with a new powerbook. But since money is always a factor, and I only get a year out of a laptop, I have to go with a sony. Haven't had one die on me yet and I beat the sheet outta them
I bought a second hand 12" powerbook. I couldn't face spending that much cash and really struggle to make a laptop do normal things like suspend and resume, effortless wireless networking and so on. I would have hated running XP.
The good thing is that Mac Os X plays well with my linux desktop : nfs file sharing, cups printing, remote X access using xdmcp.
You feel the proprietary penchant but it's bearable.
