Hot Rodding Your Slightly Dated Laptop For Fun and Profit - page 5
Wrenching On A Laptop?
Running Linux on a laptop is much easier than it was even a year ago. And it's getting easier almost daily. Most of the Linux integrators, that I know, are now running laptops, every day, in their consulting businesses. We've all heard the recent debates about Linux on the desktop. Some recent articles I've read even say that the desktop's days are numbered, considering the horsepower in current laptops.
Use the secrets outlined in this article, forget about who is going to win the desktop race and get out there and conquer the computing world on an inexpensive, powerful, rock solid and "warmed over" Linux laptop. You'll smile, your clients will smile and you won't even have to clean the grease out from under your fingernails.
