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.

Look at the HP ZD7000
by me2 on Fri 5th Nov 2004 15:54 UTC

A bunch of us are using Linux on the HP ZD7000 series laptops. I am writing this email on one (via a wireless internet connection no less) right now.

The AD7000 and Linux are an awesome combination.

The ZD7000s have 3+GHz P4 processors, an excellent 17" LCD, a numeric pad, a DVD burner and 2ish hours of battery life. They weigh just under 10 pounds. Not a "carry in your purse" laptop, but a very good desktop replacement machine. Since purchasing this machine a month ago, I've given up my desktop computer and I have no regrets.

For more info, see Be sure to check out the Linux forum. We've got everything working perfectly except the memory card reader and we are working on that.

FC3 and the newest 2.6.9 kernels have everything in them to get ACPI working properly. Actally, better than properly...
