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.

Why Pentium 4 ? Why not ?

I don't understand why you wouldn't want a P4. I don't understand what people do with sub "desktop replacement" laptops. They aren't powerful enough to use "for everything". They don't have a decent screen. They don't have a decent hard drive. No number pad. Processors are slow... what good are they ?

Maybe that is why the ZD7000 is my first laptop.

My ZD7000 does everything. I got it a month ago and I haven't used my desktop since. (AMD2800 BTW) I write code on it, compile kernels, surf the web, answer email, etc. It is always with me and I'm always organized and able to work.

When I get back to the office I don't have to download data to my "real" computer.

The screen is outstanding on these things. A 17" 1280 x 1024 LCD looks poor compared to these things.
