    I am a freelance software tester. For my next project I have to use Solaris - OpenSolaris is probably acceptable but that has to be confirmed - so I need to buy a compatible laptop.

    Does anyone have experience with a currently available laptop that would help my selection. I can afford to pay a reasonable price for a laptop but cannot afford to make a mistake and buy a second one.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the suggestions and for taking the time.

    I had already looked at them all but the first three are quite old and the Hardware Compatibility List does not inspire confidence, e.g. the Lenovo 3000 N200 is 'Reported to Work' but has a general comment 'Booted from the LiveCD, didn't install.'

    The Solaris forums are the obvious place to look but I got my 'Windows Secrets' this morning and that prompted me to try the lounge.
