"The PowerBook G4 Mac in the house finally quit working. We
splurged $300 on a brand new laptop recently. We got a 3 year old
Dell Latitude D820 from Craigslist. With 2.16 GHz Intel Core Duo,
and 1920×1200 screen resolution – that makes for an
impressive system with Ubuntu 9.10 installed.
"The install was straightforward. You just download Ubuntu 9.10,
burn the download onto a single CD. You then install from the disk
– in our case by pressing F12 to enter the boot menu and
select boot from disk. You just follow instructions on the screen
to get it going, and that’s all"
