    That's awesome. I want to get myself a HP 6730B, $1200 AUD, with 2GB RAM and a 2.66GHz Core 2 Duo. The 160GB HDD is nice too, although Ubuntu only ever uses 4-8GB :P.

    Anyway, good luck!

    A dual-core 2.66 GHz will beat the pants off of the P4 2.4 GHz single core! The laptop I got is a HP ze5375us. It does have an ATI video chipset in it, but wish it was nVidia.

    I actually gave the laptop back to the co-worker. It was so he could copy and/or delete any personal files and information from it. I also said if he wanted to, he could pay me what I spent on fixing it. and keep it. I also put a wireless-G miniPCI card in it ($10) and two 512MB RAM cards, left over from when I upgraded my laptop's memory.

    Yes, yes it would. The 6730B has just a standard Intel - but hey, we're not running Vista here. It works fine with XP SP3, so Ubuntu should run a absolute dream.
