Re: [vox] Laptop recommendation

Hi Bill,

I'm using a 1.8 GHz Pentium M HP nc6000, 1GB RAM. It's a bit behind the curve these days but can be had on eBay for ~$200-$300. I installed KUbuntu via Wubi without a hitch.

My current job spoiled me by providing a laptop.
I'll soon be starting a new job, and decided a laptop would be nice to have.
I'll be doing web application development, so horsepower and graphics
capabilities are less important than ease-of-installation and -maintenance
with Linux (I favor Kubuntu flavor of Ubuntu, these days).

Where to start? :)  One issue w/ my last laptop was wireless support. :^P
