    I play basketball with the students at my university for an hour or two every day.

    Re: Laptop buying

    Lenovo usually has very nice 12" 14" and 15" thinkpads available on their website and, if you're patient, they periodically run very nice sales on their gear.

    Either/Or v1 is a treat although I've never made it to the second volume. Went straight to Fear and Trembling.
  6. Re: I'm Destroyed, totally, totally disappointed in this ver.

    My advice is to manually partition your drives during installation rather that trust things to ubiquity. I've dual-booted off and on for about 10 years and never had a problem.

    One of my primary criteria is durability and almost all the ultrabooks fall short. I drag a 12" Lenovo Thinkpad with an ssd around because its small, ergonomic, efficient, inexpensive and built like...

    Re: Which Laptop?

    As others have said, get a Thinkpad instead. They're awesome and IBM customer service is extraordinary.

    Re: Ubuntu Alienware gameing machine.

    I tend to agree with these folks only in the sense that it's a little early to push Ubuntu as a gaming platform with so few games on Steam.

    On the other hand I think these machines appeal to more...

    Yeah, do it yourself!

    That said, I'm not really sure Gnome Shell is going to satisfy you. Sounds like you're clamoring for a Gnome 2.x or Mate spin.

  21. Re: Help me find an (ultra) portable gaming laptop

    Fair warning, optimus is more than a bit fidgety with the new kernel and doesn't work with hdmi out.

    I would wait a few months if not a year to see how support for optimus shapes up.
