I'm in the market for a laptop; my current one is i8100 and
has behaved very well under Mandriva for the last 5 years but
the limit of 512MB RAM is starting to hurt especially with
recent versions of Eclipse.
I'll probably be running Mandriva on it. It'll be mostly a
development machine with a little recreation thrown in.
My requirements are (apart from usual things like USB2, DVD burner, etc.):
(a) Support for 4GB RAM
(b) Runs well under Linux.
(c) Hi-res screen (at least 1440x900; a lot of low end machines seem
to be 1280x800 which I find is too small).
