Laptop recommendations

Hi All,

I looked through the gnuradio archive, and couldn’t find this topic, so
I’m posting.

Does anyone have a current recommendation for a laptop for use with
gnuradio? I’ve never had a problem with any desktop running Ubuntu
6.0.6, but the first laptop I tried (Dell Latitude D520) had rx
overruns. I’m guessing the USB 2.0 chipset it uses sucks.

In any case, if anybody uses a laptop with ubuntu and gnuradio, I’d love
to know about it, because I need to buy a laptop for some testing.
Preferably something on the cheaper side, but not a 8 lbs brick.

Not cheap, but I use a Thinkpad T60 with Ubuntu 7.04 64-bit version.
It’s about the best laptop/Linux combination I’ve ever come across.

The USB 2.0 supports the full range of GNU Radio data rates.

I run GNU radio on a Dell M90 which is not cheap, but does a great job.
Use ext2 filesystem if you are going to be writing data to the hard
drive in realtime – faster than ext3.
