A friend of mine is wanting a new laptop and asked if I would post his request here - Yes he uses Linux.
Does anybody know of a good source for him? I've looked at Linux built laptops including Dell and all seem to be overpriced compared to popular Windows orientated companies. I had a beautiful Huawei Al chassis, fingerprint and a good spec at a marvelous price from Amazon under £500. I dual booted Ubuntu 22.04 but could not get Sound, microphone or fingerprint to work! All I got from Ubuntu was criticism of my post and no solutions offered. I tried at least a dozen links from Google and made no progress, I returned the laptop on the last day of returns and got refunded 2 months later. I've looked at reconditioned from Amazon sellers but reductant to trust their service/guarantee. I wonder if you could ask the group for any suggestions around ,£500. 256 /512 SSD 8GB memory i3/5 or AMDr3/5, Al chassis, 14"+/- , fingerprint and backlight UK keyboard. Over to you guys.
