Tags: Laptops Ubuntu Last response: November 3, 2010 6:45 PM in Laptops & Notebooks Share slickg November 3, 2010 6:40:23 PM Hello, these forums look great! I am searching for a small laptop/netbook to use at work, all I need to do are basic tasks - word processing, wifi etc. I was thinking of getting a small used/refurb and maybe booting ubuntu to increase speed? Adding a stick or ram etc. Has anybody got any ideas? my budget is really small for this case, no more than £150. Any help is greatly appreciated!
