View Full Version : Need a new laptop (with specifics)

September 29th, 2007, 01:30 AM

I am in need of a new laptop. I know that this topic has been brought up before, but I have a few specific needs. First, wireless needs to work. Second, some kind of TV out needs to work because I do a good amount of presenting and I have had problems with my current s-video situation (it may be a problem with ubuntu, I'm not totally sure). Third, I do not want a Thinkpad. Yes, I know they are the "most compatible" and all, but I do not like them. They are uncomfortable for me to work on.

I am a music teacher and mostly do word processing, but I also need to run some highly intensive programs from time to time, so a good amount of memory would be nice.

thank you very much for your input.

For the wireless I think your best bet would be to go for an intel chipset. Don't bother with broadcom based chips.
