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.

IBM thinkpad:no restore CD either
by Hobbs on Sun 8th May 2005 11:57 UTC

No restore CD for my ThinkPad express. It has a restore button, but if the HD goes bust, I am sunk!

Apple makes the best laptops (I have two Powerbooks, an older Lombard and a G4 Al). Even their least expensive iBook one is better than the best PC laptop, IMHO. Prices are not bad if you can get a Students discount or work in an educational institution.

Among PC laptops I like IBM ThinkPads (cost more than iBooks though).
