Re: Laptop recommendations?
Well if your in the UK then definitely buy a Novatech laptop, I have one and they are top-notch!
Outside UK, then it would definitely be a Dell with Ubuntu, although they price it the same or more expensive then the Windows counterpart?
However, I have had 2 Dell laptops and my first one was a Inspiron 6000, and it literally totally failed! Only after 13 months, plus it was very poorly made and the components did look cheap. So I would think twice about Dell, plus there support was not good at all. Although my second (a replacement) E1505 has been okay, it still doesn't give Dell a good name.
Think twice about Dell, and DEFINITELY go for the 2 years warranty. 3 years, too long and after that you get excuses saying parts are only available at the repair center.
A 1525n with Ubuntu, and a 2 years warranty. Good choice!
I hope I have helped you make a decision.
