View Full Version : Best Netbook choice for UNR?
July 28th, 2009, 02:30 AM
I'm going to buy a netbook soon and I'd like to dual-boot XP and Ubuntu Netbook Remix. I see lengthy evaluations here in the forum, but can someone tell me in simple terms what the best one or two netbook choices are?
I care about: 1) running UNR out-of-the-box, 2) good screen resolution, 3) long battery life.

As for the best netbook, I have been wondering about that myself. The Aspire One and the eee both seem to have a large linux user base.
