A great laptop for siduction
« on: 2014/12/09, 14:46:11 »
My old netbook started showing signs of dying, so I crossed my fingers on Black Friday and took advantage of a sale price on a HP 350 G1 laptop.  What a great choice it has turned out to be!  I decided to share the information here, FWIW, in case anyone else is thinking of a new laptop. I replaced the hdd with a Samsung SSD, then I installed Indian Summer KDE and it runs really fast. It needs the realtek and ralink firmware for the network chips, and then everything else works out of the box.  Here are the details:
