I should really post this in hardware, but everyone would be pointing me at Windows laptops. I want something that works OOTB.
I've had my eye on this: https://www.system76...ops/model/galu1
The real thing that opened my eyes was "4th Generation Intel Core i7-4750HQ". I'm like, wow, and that's under $1,000? I looked up the CPU benchmarks on notebookcheck, that's really up there...
Lowest memory it comes with is 4GB. I can just flip out the RAM I currently updated in my Acer laptop (8GB). It has a max of 16GB, so I can always upgrade.
Integrated video, but I'm not the biggest gamer, and can just game on my desktop.
HDD is no issue, I have a spare SSD that I can use on there.
Plus it is a ultrabook, what I was previously looked into.
I looked on several Linux-like laptop shops, none of them were close to this. All of them were like $1,500+ for that kind of CPU.
What you guys think? I might get this in a few months. Right now I have no money, but a friend of mine is going to hire me in his hosting company. (in my sig) In a few months, as soon as he gets buyers, I shall have enough money.
Edit: Oh, I might just wipe Ubuntu off there and install Debian Wheezy. I'm more into that
