I've had some wifi trouble with a brand new Samsung Series 5 Ultra 14" Notebook. It appears to be hardware-related and is definitely not a Linux problem. After days of frustration, I'm returning the computer and buying something else.
Although the Samsung didn't pan out, it had certain features that are on my wish list for its successor:
1. 13-14" screen
2. 750 GB hard drive (at least)
3. 8 GB memory
4. dull screen (to minimize glare)
5. CD/DVD drive
Does anyone know of such a creature that's known to work well with Ubuntu 12.04 or 12.10?
