How to Help Your Business Become an AI Early Adopter

"...after your nervous breakdown and before the credit card bill arrives, there is something really wonderful about a great laptop. It may have cost more then a nice used car, but you can't take a car into a restaurant either. Knowing that you are carrying around enough computing power to cause a gadget freak from ten years ago to pass out is a pleasure that extends beyond pure geekdom: anyone can understand it."

"The TuxTops Obsidian is exactly that sort of machine. As close to a no-compromise laptop as you can buy, it combines battery life, performance, display and video capabilities and even ergonomics in a package that will make most people happy--if anything will. Most importantly, every TuxTops laptop comes with Linux pre-installed. Yeah, that other desktop OS is available, but Linux is the main deal here."

"The TuxTops Obsidian is a top-of-the-line laptop, and the test unit was configured to prove it. Start with a 650/500MHz SpeedStep Pentium III, 256 Megabytes of RAM, an 18 gigabyte hard drive, 8MB ATI Rage mobility LT video chip set, 6 speed DVD drive, a 15-inch 1024x768 display and all of the usual features like sound, dual PC-CARD/Cardbus slots, a floppy drive, a built-in Lucent Winmodem, IrDA, serial and parallel ports, a port replicator connector for desktop use and more, most of which are ready to use the first time the system boots into Linux."
