    If its Linux point of view, make sure the hardware is fully compatible, if you want peace of mind with quality and support linux, take a look at system 76 laptops which are specifically made for linux and come pre loaded with Ubuntu. Rule of thumb here is to avoid ATI and Intel for graphics and also avoid iffy wireless chips.

    thanks linux for all but here we dont have system76 in my country we have dell with linux

    i have a lenovo 300 n100 i used almost 10 common distors from live cd they all work well out of box not problem for daily basic use

    just wondering about i3 303 intel chip without graphic card is it enough for day to day work use and play some nice videos

    has any experience with i3 chip so far without any graphic card how it perform with linux :rolleyes:

    Intel graphics have improved but they still can't do stuff that nvidia does with ease, videos need GPU acceleration which Intel is not yet providing, neither is ATI unfortunately.
