I know this is crazy, but different people have different needs/preferences when it comes to technology!

Some specific needs with those preferences. But if legacy support is needed, then the desktop would already be available to them. All they would need is a tablet.

I'm seeing a free people in here misunderstand what "budget notebooks" are. $500? That's budget. The $300 you speak of? That's cheap crap. Sorry, but these aren't AMD C-60's

Yes, I got myself a last-gen I3 for $400, but it also wasn't nearly as nice as these are.

Cheap != budget

Hi guys

I like the touch screen! The laptops with such a feature are something new for me. Is someone knows is it works in linux?
