Ok first I'm not trying to troll in any way. I meant in terms of buying
a laptop and using it straight away.

- What is a new model laptop for you?

- Have you bought these laptops based on their features or based on
hardware specs that is *potentially* well supported, like a Thinkpad?

- What constitute "a _little_" work for you?

I never said Windows on a laptop was perfect ;) but for that matter
Ubuntu and linux distro in general are not perfect either... Sorry.
