I am looking to buy a new budget laptop to run LinuxMint on it. I can spend max of 300$. The laptop will be used mainly for SSH connections and browsing. Do you know some good offers? Let me know. If you have some good links please share them here.
I suggest you to go with lenovo laptop.I think it will give the best for your budget.
But my favorite laptop is HP
Lenovo Thinkpad is what I always buy for a good low price and plays well with Linux.
Good deals on these at ebay but I recommend you buy from a dealer there and not individual.
Thanks guys, I found a perfect Lenovo Thinkpad with 4G RAM and intel i5 CPU for less than $200. I think this is it
According to me
ASUS X-series is the best option…for Linux and a good budget Laptop…
can you please share the model number? so that i will also buy
Lenovo Thinkpad X220 Core i5. I bought it second hand from Bulgarian website. But I suggest you check in ebay or alternative in your region.
That notebook is well capable of running Linux Mint & should last quite some time. Obviously used at this price, certainly not a budget model ($1299.99 new). Lenovo hardware is among the best, I still have an ancient T42 Thinkpad series with MInt 13 MATE installed.
With 4GB RAM (possibly upgradable to 8GB) & an i5, you should be able to cruise through whatever you want or need to do.
I want that too
It is a used laptop, with 6 months warranty. We have lots of such in Bulgaria. You can search in ebay, you might easily fine one as well. Good Luck
I did some research, it costs around 500$ in Bosnia! Used!!!
I just had a look there - 400 lev seems a nice deal.
Btw, great article on how to install Wordpress on CentOS 7.
Thanks. Btw if tyou tell me your country region I can check the shipping costs if you really want to buy such laptop
I think we’re quite near - Bulgaria and Bosnia are
I’ll send you a PM when/if I decide. Thanks.
I think Dell Inspiron 3542 comes pre-installed with Ubuntu
