Linux When I read the article on Slashdot & OSNews that Linare was putting out a sub-$500 notebook, I immediately jumped on the deal. I purchased a laptop directly from Linare in early February. Their site stated that I would receive the laptop in 2-4 weeks. I waited in anticipation.

I bought a refurbished IBM ThinkPad for 700 bucks off of Good customer service from overstock and since it is ibm certified i deal with them for warranty etc. It came looking and acting like new and is a great machine. p3 700mhz (doesn't sound that great but it is more than enough) 256mb ram 30 gig harddrive not to mention it is an ibm.
