The computer that I bought last year[1] cost just GBP 165 and a few months
later it could be bought for just GBP 127. 2.2GhZ; 256 RAM; 40 GB HDD; SUSE
9.3. Search for "eSys". They have a Linux laptop that sold for about GBP 227
(IIRC) at the beginning of the year. The machine will accept merely any
Linux distro and should give you no trouble at all. Everything works out of
the box (not just with SUSE).

Best wishes,


[1] I use the computer at home very little, so no need for cutting edge.
