Any opinions?
Probably this a good option for those who are looking for Linux powered laptops.

glossy finish is definitelly not a good thing because of reflections. but otherwise, it seems to be very cool hardware.

i want the bonobo with mate finish screen.

They look cool, personally I like glossy finish as long as I'm using the computer indoors... I know that Asus and Dell sells some linux powered computers and I think HP does to... Normally you won't find them in stores though (I did see an asus eee 2 and 4GB with linux in Walmart once though), so you have to order online... also good to note that not all of there computers have Ubuntu options sadly... (although Dell even carry's (last I checked) DrDOS witch I always found odd...)

I don't know the manafacturer, and in laptops, the motherboard is extremly important because if its quality is bad, you get lots of trouble.

I have an Asus with glossy finish, indoors its normal, outside with lot of sun its starts to get anoying.
A friend of mine have an HP with glossy finish, and even indoors its a little bit anoying the reflection.


This kind of things its better to see them by yourself with your own eyes, lift it and feel the weight, type text and feel if the keyboard suits you, etc...

You can buy a notebook with windows pre-installed, delete it and install whatever you want, optionally ask for refund for windows oem license Wink
