I have tried to build a linux laptop for my test purpose. No Sucess at all. That seem to be the hard disk of my old laptop not working. Moreover, there are display and screen resolution issues. I can't get fixed. OK. The solutions I got my main PC is quite pwoerful it can handle the virtual machine. Thus, I tried VWMare workstation. That is very good. It is stable. Because that is virtualized, so no problems on drivers. My Ubuntu supports the VWMave virtual hardware!
This is a 9-Inch version!
