Hardware, Embedded Systems San Jose-based LinuxCertified.com sent us one of their best-selling laptops, the LC2430. We've used it for more than a month with four different distributions and here's what we think about it.

I know that's what you said, and after your post I have no better understanding of why you think a laptop by all means is nearly non-portable isn't a desktop replacement?

Let's try again. Whether 6 or 7 lbs makes something a desktop-replacement is very subjective because it's a weight thing. Some people might find 7 lbs "heavy" some people think it's nothing. But battery-life becomes less subjective. 1.5 hours vs. say 6 hours.

No, somebody who seems to take great joy in picking apart everything Eugenia says for a place to disagree is contrarian. But then, I was only asking.

Uhmmm, I didn't even address Eugenia in my original post. I responded to her after she responded to me. Stop being paranoid. Eugenia is a big girl and can handle disagreement.

As in, it's my opinion that anyone buying a laptop wants to move it some, and a laptop weighing 10lbs is too heavy to do so much more than a well thought out SFF which is much more upgradable.

Yes, it is your opinion that 10lbs is too heavy. I have no problem lifting 10 lbs. And to even consider a SFF in the same "portability" league as a laptop is just bizarre. You still have to plug in monitors, keyboards, the actual unit itself. With my desktop replacement I just unplug the power cord, move it upstairs, and plug it in the cord upstairs.
