I am looking for a notebook between $800 and $1100 at the most
I have played with some configurations, dell, hp, etc. How well do they work with linux? i can get a nice configuration on tigerdirect for a referbished hp laptop, and i understand a lot of people dislike HP. how will i know how well it will work with linux and whatnot? My other option is a dell inspiron 1100 with a celeron proc, but i would rather have a Athlon
My recommendation is to go with Dell. I've worked with most of their desktop models and some laptops (currently have a latitude c840) and I still have not found anything that won't work with Linux.
I'd recommend googling for the model number + linux
Yeah, thats what im thinking..i just see celeron and think *eww*..but i have to remember, im not asking for a powerhouse laptop, im merely asking for something to help me on the road with homework/watching dvds/etc.
(on the side note, i like your signature im using links to browse the boards and its the first time i have actually seen it)
