I am looking into buying a new laptop. I use linux on my desktop computer and would like to be able to use it on my laptop as well. I usually use Ubuntu, but with their recent developments, I am looking for another flavour of linux to try out (probably mint or arch).
My problem is that I want a sturdy laptop. I like Apple's idea of the unibody frame so that it isn't cheap plastic like most of the other laptops on the market but I completely despise what Apple stands for and would never buy their products. Now my question, any suggestions on which laptops I should look into?
