  1. Hello,

    The weather is getting a lot nicer, and i'm not really a fan of working indoors!

    I'm looking for a laptop with a decent battery, and one that I can play some old school games on (Red Alert 2 etc).

    Any suggestions would be appriciated, i'm tempted to wait for the new Penryn cpus to become more wideley available as they're very low power!

    Also as a thought, i'm getting into Ubuntu and therefore don't really need a preintalled OS. Is there such a thing as a laptop with no OS?

    Perhaps you could define "cheap". What is your price range?

    Thanks for the response, i'm looking at the £300-£500 ($600-$1000) range. I would prefer to spend less, but if the laptops perfect then i'm happy to pay up to £500.
