Ubuntu on the Dell Mini 10
So I was thinking about laptops the other day.
I go to lots of conferences and sprints for work and the laptop I usually have is a MacBook Pro. Its a nice laptop, its great for doing work on and its my main workstation when home. However, its a bitch to lug around on airplanes and can run a bit hot on my lap when I’m using it at conferences.
This week in Ottawa, there is a lot of boxing day sales, so I ran out with Liam and got a Dell Mini 10 netbook with those Intel Atom processors. When I got home and finally put liam to bed. I cracked open the box and put Ubuntu on it.
So far so good, the sound works, the network works, and everything works. However the keyboard is a bit small from what I use to but it is a netbook.
