LOS ANGELES -- There are a number of netbooks on the market, but I wanted to get my hands on one loaded with the Linux operating system, Ubuntu. With a number of cell phone companies switching to Linux, I think it's only a matter of time before more and more laptops, see the light. System 76 is a company that is dedicated to the Linux operating system. This is the kind of machine that businesses should send out to their mobile executives. The stable operating system and the price can't be beat.
Later, Gadget Grrl says TSA lines are no fun, so a laptop case that will help you cut down on the amount of time you spend in those lines is a real find. Caselogic makes a case for just about anything, iPods, cameras, backpacks, even car trunk organizers. Their 16" Security Friendly Laptop Case, is designed so that your laptop meets the TSA guidelines and does not have to be removed from the case.
