With recent talk of hardware running more slowly under Ubuntu, and
with my thinking of getting a new portable laptop, i thought i might
check with the list here to see if anyone knows if there will be any
problems with the following. I don't know much about hardware so if
there is anything people think should be flagged, i'd appreciate the

Its the Lenovo 11" Thinkpad.


Brand: Lenovo
Screen Size: 11.6 inches
Processor:	Intel Core i3, 1.33 GHz
Computer Memory Type: DDR3 SDRAM
Hard Drive Size:	320 GB
Graphics Card Description:	Intel HD Graphics
Graphics RAM Type:	Unknown

If anyone has any overwhelming reasons for buying another machine i
would love to hear them. One condition is that i do a fair bit of
gruelling fieldwork and so like the build quality of Lenovo.
