Quote from: CTG on August 20, 2013, 09:29:40 AMI think a 14" Dell Latitude will win (from another store), with about the same performance as the above mentioned ThinkPad's.

Quote from: dreadnaut on August 21, 2013, 10:50:08 AMDoubts: that resolution at 15.6" is a bit crappy; I'd drop to 4GB of ram for a better screen —you can add ram later, but changing the screen is a pain; not even one usb-3 port? mmmh, smells of older motherboard, which is not good overall —I've seen at least one usb-3 port on laptops for about two years now; cd/dvd? can't you reuse the one from your old laptop in a 5-10€ usb case?

Quote from: CTG on August 23, 2013, 03:31:24 PMSo the system warning can be ignored.

It always appears, makes more sense for disc drives where you might have installed stuff: changing those letters would definitely screw up something.
