You could be a moderate computer user or a hardworking professional developer, but that shouldn’t mean the need of access you demand for performance is curtailed. Notably, if you go to the computer store, they would either offer a Windows preinstalled Notebook or an Apple MacBook. Next, if you go for the former, you have to pay an amount for the software and the latter one is readily an expensive purchase.
So, what if you have another option?
Yes, you have another option to get the distribution of your choice. That means, you will buy a new laptop and install the OS of your choice. But, will the hardware support the OS fully? Some doubts linger over there.
But, if not this, what next?
We can’t say it as a perfect option because nothing is as perfect as it seems in the electronic world. However, a solution the successfully scores better over the above two options is to buy a laptop Linux preinstalled device. Fortunately, there are genuine vendors out there that offer these devices and related services, offering a seamless experience for you.
Linux laptop buying guide
Before you set yourself for a purchase, the answers of a few questions should be clear in your mind. And, the questionnaire goes as this:
How much can I invest?
What size of a laptop will suit my needs (13”, 14”, 15” or 17”)
What do I need it for? Gaming or software development or internet?
Do I need a laptop with longer battery life or a normal would do?
Will it work as a mobile workstation for me?
What kind of games do I love to play? (for dual booting needs)
The above will help you decide to pick the best laptop with Linux OS.
Choose the laptop vendors
The biggest problem from which you get relieved is after finding the reliable vendors. Not following that could bring enough troubles on your table. Therefore, conduct a proper research by preparing a list of vendors. You can ask for specific laptops within your budget, but only after citing the requirements. Probably, the vendors who understand your demands will offer the quotes accordingly. Stay clear from the start if you already have brand obsessions. Typically, the people obsessed with any particular brand do not relent that easily.
For finding about the vendors, you can check out the reviews from their previous customers. If the reviews slightly suggest anything different from what the vendor claims, you can choose to skip them. Many of the customers demands for authentic credentials (which you can also do) that certify about them being the genuine suppliers. You can start with requesting quotations from various suppliers and choose a specific Fedora or Ubuntu laptop or whichever that suits your preferences.
While selecting the laptop, you must go through the specifications provided in the quotes and compare its value in the market. It happens that they may charge you an extra for one single component. The deal is positively struck once you have made a well-informed decision.
