Ok, I want to retire my notebook. It's about to turn 10 years old, which is about 270 in notebook years, so it's time.
I've been researching a bit, and here's my requirements:
Cheap. About USD 950 would be fine
Enough power to run KDE decently.
Should work with linux. Nothing very fancy, but it being able to suspend would be nice ;-)
DVD reader, CD writer. DVD writer would be nicer but consider cost.
Before anyone say it's not powerful enough: My desktop has a slower CPU (A Duron) and I like it just fine.
The screen is rather smallish, but that's part of being small and light, I consider the 12" screen a plus.
If anyone knows of a better system in this price range (the Averatec can be found for about USD 890 or so), or of a cheaper way to get one, please comment here!
