  1. Re: If you had $1600 to spend on a laptop, what kind what you get?

    He did say he had only $1600 to spend, did he not? The cheapest Macbook Pro is $1999.
  2. Re: If you had $1600 to spend on a laptop, what kind what you get?

    I'd probably get a 2.0GHz Core 2 Duo Macbook with 2GB of memory. I just can't resist a built-in webcam and mic in a notebook. And if you order one today, you get it for $101 cheaper due to their...

    Re: Help locating cheap machines

    I've got an old desktop I don't need anymore. I have successfully installed Edgy on it also. Here's a list of what it's got in it:

    CPU: Intel Celeron 700MHz
    Memory: 256MB
    Drives: DVD-ROM

  4. Re: Shafetech Launches $299 Desktop and $699 Laptop

    I second what sophtpaw said. Unfortunately, I think your prices are quite a bit too high. I could get a 2.0GHz Core 2 Duo Macbook for cheaper than your 2.0GHz Core Duo notebook.

    Video card recommendations

    I currently have an NVIDIA Geforce FX 5500, but I'm looking for a good (less than $100) video card which will play well with Beryl. Unfortunately, it has to be an AGP card.

    I'm currently leaning...

    Personally, I like the name gTorrent. It reflects that it's native desktop environment is GNOME. ;)
  10. Re: Criticism helps make BUMPS better... gimme some!

    Is there any specific reason why BUMPS removes Totem? I sort of liked Totem for its simplicity. Any chance we could maybe have the option to remove it or not in the default installation?

    Re: Swiftfox, a faster Firefox

    It's amazing how much quicker and snappier Swiftfox is compared to plain ol' Firefox. This is now my browser of choice for Linux.

    Re: Improve performance in Ubuntu

    The only problem is that I'm on an old AMD K6 with 192MB of RAM. OO takes about 20 seconds to fully load. I'm not as much worried about how much memory it's using when it's actually loaded.
