Recently I have been to Thailand. I attended one official meeting at Krabi, Thailand. On the way to Krabi, I stopped at Bangkok. While wandering around I found Acer Aspire 4732Z laptop at very amazing price. The configuration of the laptop is:
- Intel Pentium Dual Core Processor T4300 (2.1 GHz, 800 MHz FSB)
- Intel GMA 4500M Graphics Adapter
- 14.0 inch HD LED LCD
- 2 GB Memory
- 250 GB HDD
- DVD Super Multi DL Drive
- Acer Nplify 802.11b/g/Draft N
- Multi-in 1 Card reader
- 6-cell Li-ion battery
- 1 LAN port
- 1 VGA port
- Built-in webcam
- 2 USB ports
The laptop had no OS pre-installed. The store could not show me its functioning. I just bought it and brought to my hotel. I got one 4GB USB pen drive free with this. That helped me installing Ubuntu to this new laptop. In my old laptop I had .iso image of Ubuntu 9.10 Live Desktop. With help of UNetbootin I made the installation USB and installed Ubuntu 9.10. And amazing thing haappened. It detected and configured all hardware. All worked well. I started Cheese Webcam Booth and found the webcam working. Later I installed Ubuntu Netbook Remix things. and now my desktop looks great!
All of these I have got for only USD 415.
