I'd like to have change of pace and still get things done which means that I'll have to look for a decent Laptop with some serious grunt that lets me develop, test and deploy.
I'm new to this road thingie, so I'd like to get input on selection, requirements and what else to look out for. I'd also be happy about model/hardware suggestions or user experiences.
As a reference, I'm currently in the max $1000 ballpark, tendig towards cost-effectiveness.
- LAMP programming (this means real code, not web pages ;) )
Virtualization, mainly running xen as dom0 [for development / testing (up to live beta for small projects) ]
uncomplicated linux drivers for graphics would be a bonus, I'd like to avoid too much kernel patching as required for some proprietory graphics drivers.
I'm looking at suse because of xen integration until ubuntu integrates xen again.
edit: still looking for input on device selection/suggestions and personal experiences. Anyone?
