Story: My PC broke last year > http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1959270 < and i need a new one as my sister is getting tired of me using her laptop. In fact, to write all this, im using a PS3 with a USB Mouse and Keyboard! I really need a new laptop for programming so here we go!: LAPTOP QUIZ! I have decided to judge a contest ON who can find me the best laptop for my needs. It has to fit these points: - Power of either an Intel Core i5 Quad Core 2ndGen or above.. or an equivilant AMD processor like the Quad Core A10 - Battery life of a MacBook Air 2013 - As slim as a MacBook (any!) - - The HDness of 1080p - 8GB of RAM or above - Has to be compatible with Ubuntu 11.04 or higher - Wirelessness of Wifi! - Plaque of the Bluetooth - Must have 2 types of display output (eg. HDMI and VGA) - Speediness of USB 3! - ALL FOR UNDER 900 _____ The winner will get a small, tiny prize! GO!
