Hardware, Embedded Systems San Jose-based 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.

You could always get an Oqo ;)

Then there are the Panasonic Toughbook T2 and W2 weighing 2.7 and 2.8lbs respectively, with and without optical. Or their godly 3.4lb, 14.1" SXGA Y2... *sigh*

Personally, I'm looking at the 3.4lb carbon fiber Asus M5Ne (sold as the C3:12 at PowerNotebooks). It looks like it works pretty smoothly in n*x, even the modem with Linuxant drivers. The S5N is only 2.8lbs, sacrificing the internal optical.

Fujitsu and Sharp have me awfully tempted too, and I just might kill for a Sony X505 ;)

So many laptops... so little cash.
