Hi,
Can anyone recommend a thin, light laptop (new or used) that works well on ubuntu.
I'm not so keen on a netbook and don't want a big gallumping 15"+ laptop. Ultrabooks are still a bit pricey.
What would you recommend?
cheers
Baronne

I'm a big fan of ThinkPads, they have always run Linux really well for me. You might take a look at the X series:

Also, a good resource for Linux on ThinkPads:

Toshiba laptops work nicely.

I won't recommend a specific model, as mine is a bit older and not something you'd want to buy today. :p
