     Hi Guyan,

     My suggestions is that if you are short of money but need a computer
for basic stuff, like internet browsing and word processing, you can find
bargains on the Ebay and also at the Computer Fair in central London (near
totternham court road). Then you can install Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Xubuntu as your
main OS or as dual boot. Ubuntu usually runs faster than Win Xp if your
computer doesn't have high specs.
     If you are planning to get a laptop, check this site for compatibility.

     I haven't finished testing my laptop in every aspected suggest by the
LaptopTestingTeam, but i can garantee that the Toshiba Equium A100-147 works
just fine with Ubuntu 6.10. I haven't installed it in my other laptop, a IBM
Thinkpad T40, but the live CD runs smoothly as well.
     If you need quick answers, try the www.ubuntuforums.org website.

     Good luck.

     Daniel Quarte
