    $2000? You're loaded with choice then.

    www.system76.com
    www.zareason.com


    You could also buy a refurbished 2010 MacBook Pro (here), which should run Ubuntu nicely.

    7 is a bit long, 5 or 6 is more like what I get for normal activities. If I do any virtualization, then that gets cut down to two hours or so.

    I had an older Macbook Pro which worked fine. It died and was replaced by a newer (8.2) model which still does not have wireless support and the track pad is overly sensitive. Other than that, I have it set up nicely with dual boot Lion/Natty and share the home directories.

    If you're not tied to Ubuntu, Lemote makes a nice Yeeloong netbook which runs gNewSense (Debian-based).
