The $838 E1505n Ubuntu laptop

Thursday, 24 May, 2007
PROCESSOR
Intel® Core™ 2 Duo processor T5300 (2MB Cache/1.73GHz/533MHz FSB)
compromise: The T7200 processor with the 4MB cache at 2Ghz adds $250
OPERATING SYSTEM
Ubuntu Edition version 7.04
LCD PANEL
15.4 inch Wide Screen XGA Display
MEMORY
1GB Shared Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 533MHz, 2 Dimm
compromise: 2GB would raise the price $150, although the addition would make this a five-year machine
HARD DRIVE
80GB 5400rpm SATA Hard Drive

compromise: a 7200rpm drive would be an additional $100, but more tax on the battery.

OPTICAL DRIVE
8X CD/DVD Burner (DVD+/-RW) with double-layer DVD+R write capability
not a compromise: Would I really write DVDs with this machine? $40

BATTERY
85 WHr 9-cell Lithium Ion Primary Battery

not a compromise: 1.5x the juice of the standard battery for $49

WIRELESS CARDS
Intel PRO/Wireless 3945a/g

VIDEO CARD
Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 950
SOUND OPTIONS
Integrated Audio
