Silent laptop

xRalf asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-11

I'd like to buy new laptop, because my old is too noisy. I have to decrease frequency but when there is hot weather the fan is running all the time.
So, I'm looking for a laptop that is most possible silent the performance is not highest priority, but I prefer silent with good performance and I don't use Windows, so the laptop should have good hardware compatibility with Linux.

Could you recommend me some particular machines for my needs? I'm thinking about something from Dell, IBM Lenovo, Fujitsu Siemens or some other quality brands (not Acer).

thank you for help
