Hey all, im getting ready to buy a laptop soon and i have decided on
either the HP or Compaq machines (because of the price, and AMD

I was wondering if anybody had any information as to which one is better
for linux, or for overall performance in general.

The Hp's seem to be higher priced, but im not sure why because the stuff
that comes with them are relatively the same.

Im looking at the AMD XP-M versions as well...

Also, if anybody knows why i shouldnt buy one of these, feel free to tell.
