I want to buy an ultraportable laptop that will work perfectly with different Linux-distributions as well as with Windows 7 Ultimate. I want to use it as a backup-laptop if my first laptop gets problem, doing translation jobs on it in Windows with translation software (CAT-tools).
One of the most important things is that the keyboard is very comfortable (which I'm not content with when I use my current first laptop: Dell R15 Inspiron). So I was wondering which of, for example, these five ultraportables would be the best choice?:
When it comes to keyboard I know Lenovo is very nice, so I'm considering that as a primary choice.
Also, would it be possible to have the different Linux-distributions installed by the seller when I buy this ultraportable? So the ultraportable is ready to go with immediately when I buy it (no need to install Linux myself)?
So some key features I look in this ultraportable are:
1. Low weight but still performance close to an ordinary laptop (not like my current ASUS Eee PC1000He which is too slow and sluggish).
2. Can run different Linux without any problems at all (I know that some laptops don't run Linux so good or even at all).
3. Comfortable keyboard and touchpad enough lowered so the palm of the hand doesn't move the cursor accidentially all the time (like on my current Dell R15 Inspiron).
