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.

That's interesting. I was always under the impression that Ubuntu ran faster than XP on older hardware. I guess you only really get the performance boost with Linux on older hardware by using a lighter WM than Gnome or KDE.
