Okay, well im not a computer noob and i do research before I buy computers. I'm going to get a laptop for Christmas. I do NOT want a netbook. On my laptop i will install Ubuntu right away, so I don't care about what OS comes with it. I will likely be uing Dolphin [The one and only Wii emulator, thats amazing (do your research)] and using Play On Linux to install Steam. im not looking for too much, so a pentium or core 2 duo is fine, maybe even an i3, as long as it has graphics that fill my needs. Im buying from tigerdirect. My budget is 600 dollars. I found a lenovo notebook here, and an eMachines here. but i think my best bet would be this systemax here. it comes with 2 year warranty. What do you guys think? i'll gladly take any suggestions. and btw, i never used steam before and i want to try it.
