Hey guys, I got into the Linux scene last fall during my senior of high school. Due to time issues, I left it alone, but over this summer I plan on delving back into it again (probably w/ Slackware). Are there any super Linux-friendly laptops I should be looking at? Or are they all fairly compatible now adays? Thanks ahead!
Here are a list of linux certified/pre-installed laptops. And no, most laptops suck ass. If it isn't a winmodem, it's some other ghetto .dll software driven pile. Be careful when buying to make sure all features are kernel native. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
Thanks! I think I'm going with a new Dell Inspiron 600M, as it got rave reviews for Slackware (which I plan on using)...the only bugs were w/ the wireless and monitor power off...but both of those things have fixes already (just need to download them). Thanks for all of the help guys!
