We Really Need Laptops In This House

There aren’t enough computers in our house.  Granted, we’ve been blessed enough to have three desktop machines on a home LAN with enough bandwidth for all of them to be online at the same time, there is still a shortage however.

This shortage makes itself felt once in a while when it’s just not possible to get home to use the desktop machines.  It’s also not practical to break down and move even one of them to take them elsewhere.  No, what we need is some kind of reasonably new notebook computers that have enough memory, hard drive space and CPU to run all of our usual apps when we’re away from home.

My wife & I have both done some looking around and there’s a few pretty good candidates out there that have everything either of us want (and in some cases, need) in a laptop.  Granted, most of these are infected from the factory with veeesta but a good round of “format and reinstall” can have them up and running with XP or Linux in reasonable time.  Besides, I figure that if a machine is able to stand running veesta then it ought to just about scream with Linux.
