Hi Richard;

I know this of off top, so forgive my indulgence.

I have to agree, I loved the way that OSX married into the hardware of my macbooks, but when my 17" finally came to the end of its abilities, I was left nowhere to go for an Apple solution. I now use an ASUS Zenbook UX303 running Ubuntu ('cause I'm old and lazy) and I like it very much. I have an older version of this critter: http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX59096. <http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX59096>

The only real trouble I have with it is the battery life under Ubuntu is a little light. I have messed a little with the settings and drivers, etc., but I am not too worried about it, so my interest in it has waned.

Dell, HP, and Lenovo all handle different Linux distros well, depending on the model.

Cheers and take care.

Carter

When my 2010 vintage MacBook goes to its reward, I donât think Iâll be able/willing to replace it with another MacBook. Iâve upgraded the memory and added a solid-state disk, and it runs like a champ; even after 6 years, it does everything I need.

Unfortunately, the newest ones appear to be impossible to upgrade yourself (Iâd really like to be proven wrong on that point), and the upgradable ones are several years behind in terms of processors.

Iâve never had a laptop that I couldnât upgrade as it aged, so without that capability, I will need to find a non-Apple laptop that will support Linux well.

That said, I really like the keyboard and overall physical design of my MacBook, and would like to keep it forever, just swapping out components as they age:-).

Richard

Oh, there was a typo: It's $120 (not $220). Still a lot, but not absurd.
