Hardware, Embedded Systems Geeks.com were once more very kind to send us one of their products for a review. Geeks sells cheap laptops --among others-- and so we asked for a low-cost laptop without an operating system in it for the purpose of this review. They sent us the IBM T23, (currently selling for just $299) and an extra 256 MB stick of RAM ($30). We tested the laptop with three different OSes, read on for more.

Try several distros. Google the video card - that is usually the hardest thing to get working right. Sometimes you have to edit xorg.conf manually. If you hang in there, you can do it. Also, OpenBSD is a good choice for older laptops.
