I am planning to replace my current laptop (Dell Inspiron with Core II Due) with a new one. When I bought my current one Dell was the best choice as a Linux friendly machine, and I am using it as my main computer since than. I am planning to get a new machine with more more memory, power and disk space, but wondering which brand and model should I choose.
Please note that laptops equipped with Linux preinstalled are very rarely exists here in Israel, and most models come with OEM Windows and not Linux or FreeDOS. Also, my budget is tight and I prefer not to spend too much money when unnecessary.
