    Not really... well it's ok on the Ubuntu side, but the Windows XP part is painfully slow. I only really use Firefox, and it manages that alright.

    For uni I have a Samsung 10" N210 Plus. I have a Dell laptop too but never take it to uni with me, the netbook weighs almost nothing and the battery lasts for like 9 hours so I prefer that.

    A HP G56

    I love it, it's pretty perfect for me and was a good price- only thing I'd change is add a card reader. But I don't know if buying a HP is good now, and soo you won't be able to... whether there will still be good support options if something goes wrong? I don't really know how their changes actually affect that part of the company. My parents got mine from John Lewis though (was a gift) so they should give any support I may need.

    It's gonna be an eBay bought 2010 MacBook Pro.

    Is it weird to take a printer to uni? I'm taking one for when I run out of my measly amount of printer credits.
    iv just looked online and i got a printer off amazon, and then get compatible inks which are much much cheaper than real things and work just as well. iv used my printer alot whilst at uni, due to not only printing essays, but each year i have to produce a placement file, which involves lots of printing. so for me its cheaper to get my own printer than use the uni...

    Lenovo X200s - Exactly like this

    Possibliy the most stable, nimbliest, long battery, solid, well built WINDOWS laptop ive seen/had (except them rugged builder type ones). Weighs literally a netbook.
    Quality internal bits also, no bluescreens, crashs, hangs, and boots up fast. 12" screen but has a massive 1280x800 (bit like an iPhone 4 retina display)

    Its got a spill proof mechanism when u spill ur drink, it filters past the main bits n leaks out the bottom.

    If you're looking for a future proof laptop, Lenovo Thinkpads are the way forward

    The width of the screen is ideal for browsing TSR - the posts fill the "square" part and then the extra width is just enough for the widgets.
    Have you had any experience with the Satellite L755?
