View Full Version : [all variants] Advent 4213 help needed: which linux flavor?

April 18th, 2009, 02:35 AM
Totally to ubuntu - installed it onto my PC and dual booted with win xp with good success.

Now I have an Advent 4213 ( yay!) and i want to do the same. however, im not sure if ubuntu will be able to provide me with an OS that is less hardware resource draining as any other linux distro.
Whats the best distro for my laptop - I dont mind a bit of tinkering.
My only issue is with my 3G card ( it built into the laptop - not a dongle)
Any help with what the ebst linux distro would be?

i'm posting this from my advent 4213 running ubuntu 9.04. it all just works, even the 3g modem and function keys.

dont worry about it

the battery life is not as good as XP though, although i have noticed that the gnome battery monitor on the desktop lies. mine says 2 hrs 50 mins, powertop says 3.6 hrs
