  1. okay kids, here's the story: i've been looking around the interwebs for at least a half-decent laptop for myself, and i've currently got about $480 (possibly slightly more) to spare (i'll be updating this as i get more monies). so far, i've found a few deals i've been considering (i.e. this baby) but i'm not quite sure if they're good choices. i mostly use the comp i'm on now (pretty old) for light-duty work such as irc/gaim, TEH INTARWEBS with the insanely memory-demanding firefox and (very) occasional gaming that mostly consists of emulators (n64 and older) and freeware junk, though i could live without the last one if need be.

    so far i've decided that a screen of at least 1024x768, an hd of at least 20gb, some way to make it wireless and usb are a must, and the more ram/usb ports/display res and the less dead pixels the better. linux compatibility and one of those fancy scroll wheel-imitators would be nice things to have (ESPECIALLY if it's running anything below win2k or xp, so that probably rules out anything old with an ati graphics card), and 32-bit display, dvd and cd/rw support would be okay. weight isn't too much of an issue, and thinkpad-style ruggedness, beefy speakers (i'll most likely only be using headphones) and battery life aren't much of a priority so long as the thing won't blow up on me, decide to stop working someday or crumble to pieces when i set a cup on it.

    so, any of you lot got any ideas for where to look and what to look for?

      so far i've found this refurbished dell inspiron 6000 and this 2200, how well could these expected to work with linux (most likely fedora core or ubuntu)?

      The inspiron is probably going to jump up to around $650-$800.

      Heh, I tried to sell my laptop on here back in September. Sold it already though.
