I don't distinguish anyway between "laptop", "notebook", "netbook" and whatever else they're called.

My portable equipment is a Medion akoya E1210 (which is actually a re-labeled MSI Wind 100 that was sold by ALDI in Germany), but I swapped the original 80GB HDD for a 250GB one.
The OS is Ubuntu 10.04 "Lucid" (the standard edition, not the netbook editition, which is a pain in the ass if you ask me), though I'm considering an update to a more recent one. Not sure whether I'll stick with Ubuntu, or try out another distro.

Me either really, but it was for the purpose of being clear to those people that do.

I have an old IBM Thinkpad 380XD with Debian on it. I haven't used it in a few years, maybe I'll pull it out of the mothballs and fire it up.

My AAO specs are listed in my sig. below.

See below--the Inspiron and the Acer, plus a Dell Mini9 with Ubuntu, but I'm going to replace the Ubuntu when I get the time.
