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.

So, stop picking on me. There is NO standard of what to call something "desktop replacement" or not.

First of all, I'm not picking on you. You did call it a desktop-replacement in the review.

The laptop is really a desktop replacement rather than an ultra-portable laptop. Its battery life with a stock kernel is about 1.5 hours.

I actually agree with you that 1.5 hours of battery-life puts it out of the "ultra-portable" category and not necessarily the 7 lbs (which I consider subjective and in between).

Michael Salivar seems to think that he's figured out the categories of laptops based on weight, not me.
