i'm in the market for a laptop, and this one on the far right over here
looks perfect for what i need to do with it. the basic stuff: internet, email, some programming in C, C++, JBuilder etc - little multimedia and no gaming. the hardware is up to par considering my budget and needs; and the wireless network piece that works right out of the box is beautiful.
the other two look pretty sweet as well, but i'll be traveling with it, and the smaller 12" size is a preference. i think i'm missing why this smaller laptop is cheaper??
i like the idea of avioding some american brand name and instead supporting someone who knows what they're doing with linux, and not having to waste time getting all the hardware to work; i need something that will work straight out of the box and be reliable thereafter. this looks like it.
am i on target with this, or should i just bite the bullet and buy one from some lousy retail store and get it to work myself, however saving a few hundred dollars. lastly, if anybody's had good dealings with this company, please chime in.
any input is appreciated.
