New Laptop wht should I buy?
Ok all here is my problem. My dell e1505 is on its last leg and im looking to get a laptop that's very linux compatible out of the box. I ran the e1505 with ubuntu 8.04. Only problem was it was a pain to get the dell wireless which was a broadcom 41xx?? i do don't remember the model but the drivers did work but poor and a pain to set up. also it had ant ati x1400 mobile which was a pain to setup too. once setup and working loved this little box these past couple years.
So im looking for a laptop around $800 or so that supports lnux out of the box well. Minimal setup is preferred but i will go through the work if their is good driver support.
If no one can come up with good solution i might just go macbook for $999 but am curious what is the unix it runs? is it BSD?
Any thoughts or suggestions?? Im open to other distros of linux such as Open Suse, fedora, and open solaris, or debian if ubuntu isn't the way to go with new laptops. I guess im just used to running it.
