I need a good deal on a very portable laptop, and I need it now.
any recomendations? looking to spend well under $1000 dollars, preferably under $500, and i'd prefer that it was compatable with linux.

Check out www.techbargains.com and their deals on Dell laptops. That should get you one in the low $600s, most of the time. Don't know about compatibility, though, but I'll bet you can check.

If you get a chance to pick up a used Thinkpad, go for it. They are fucking great-- really solid hardware, really good keyboard, great linux/bsd compatibility.

Too bad they don't fucking depreciate.

Good luck.

P.S. Sorry about the server situation; I should probably have thought to ask more questions earlier...

if you're looking for an ultraportable laptop for cheap, find yourself a thinkpad 240. ebay has several listed at any given point. i have one here at work that i use for network diagnostic stuff and console management of the network gear.

im currently running win2k on it, but a simple google search for 'thinkpad 240' returns more info on how to install linux on it than specs.
