Re: [linux-392] laptop

If you're not averse to refurbished hardware, I've gotten very good 
deals from Computer Geeks, http://www.geeks....­
I got from them an HP Pavilion DV6 with a 15" screen and the following 
specs for about $650.

Processor 	: 8x Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2670QM CPU @ 2.20GHz
	This is a quad core CPU with dual threading in each core.
Memory		: 8125MB
Resolution	: 1366x768 pixels
OpenGL Renderer	: Mesa DRI Intel(R) Sandybridge Mobile
Audio Adapter	: HDA-Intel - HDA Intel PCH
750GB HDD

Running Ubuntu 12.04. Installation was without incident. Everything 
worked with Linux right out of the box, except for the fingerprint 
reader, which apparently is an issue on any hardware. But it's not 
something I was planning on using anyway.

HTH,
Elliot
