Hardware, Embedded Systems Geeks.com were once more very kind to send us one of their products for a review. Geeks sells cheap laptops --among others-- and so we asked for a low-cost laptop without an operating system in it for the purpose of this review. They sent us the IBM T23, (currently selling for just $299) and an extra 256 MB stick of RAM ($30). We tested the laptop with three different OSes, read on for more.

Eugenia, could you do me a favour and try using the Scitech SNAP driver for Linux on the T23 and see if it fares any better?

My 3yr old Athlon64 laptop has broken and I was considering buying a second hand T23 as a stopgap measure until i can afford another decent laptop.

If it causes so many problems runing Linux then I will have look for another el-cheapo alternative.

Thanks, Nik.

@nicholas

Thanks for your request on this board. To ask for help instead of uselessy ranting how *nix y or z is better on x or y hardware.

And kudos to eugenia for helping him out with the request.
