what notebook/laptop is best?


Who makes the best notebook for running Linux? I am not looking for preinstalled Linux. I am computer savy enough to obtain and install Linux. I had rather work with a notebook or laptop than a desktop computer, but what to buy? Who makes the most Linux friendly notebook computer? Thanks.

Hi,


And welcome to LQ!


As for your question: hard to answer in a generic way; I've always
had good success with thinkpads (which I happen to also like for their
trackpoints and the plain, elegant case) :} ...

It's probably easier if you look at potential candidates and then
go to check out how they fare at

Cheers,
Tink
