| Hi,
| I've read over several of the laptop testing wiki pages, but I'm
| finding it difficult to winnow down all of the pages to the few that
| would be relevant.
| I'm looking for a small, lightweight laptop on which I can run ubuntu
| (think ~12", under 5lbs).  I want a laptop that I can put in my
| backpack and carry around with me, so things like good battery life
| and hibernation support are critical.
| I'd really like all of the hardware to be supported, and I would be
| willing to take a small performance hit if I could get a
| cooler-running system.
| Suggestions?

I'm happy with my Dell XPS M1210, using it with Ubuntu since
6.06 Dapper (now running 7.04 Feisty).
