Well I stayed off the beer and other sinful delights for a while (month
or so P:) and have raked together enough cash to buy a new laptop. For
those of you out there with experience what would you advise. The plan
would be for ..unfortunately Windoze (vba stuff for work), Freebsd, and
most likely fedora. I had no problems getting my wireless to
work on the old one using the ndis stuff and freebsd beat the other
two hands down for performance.
Is there any one model or product that would be better for Freebsd 6 (as
this is my day in day out operating system).
Any experiences and or advise would be much appreciated.
It's not FreeBSD, but may I suggest an Apple PowerBook running MacOS X
? Or the new MacBook line?
I use a PowerBook G4 under MacOS X 10.4.8 as an administration system
everyday to manage around 50+ FreeBSD servers. I connect to my
server's serial consoles via a USB-to-Serial adapter from Keyspan with
ZTerm. You also have access to a ports-like environement on MacOS X
via http://www.macports.org/ and http://www.darwinports.com/. It
My two cents.
