This laptop would be lovely to install Linux on -- 


Note -- the sale is just for today, Jan 31, 2015. 

A detailed 2011 review of this laptop appears at 

I haven't bought from this company before -- just wanted to alert 
Chugalug members to a nice fast laptop at a very reasonable price. 

When you throw Linux on here, this laptop would feel almost 
as fast as a Corei7, imho.

Odin for Galaxy S3 (and eventually, for S5)

From: David White 
I'd like to root my new S5, but since I've never done it before, I'd like
to do a practice run on my Galaxy S3.

Are there any "reputable" sources for Odin that you would recommend?

I've found that you can download Odin from several different sources, but I
don't want to wind up downloading something that someone has snuck some
malware into or something.

Also, any tips, suggestions, or things I need to watch out for as I do this?

Commercial Desktop PCs as linux boxes

From: John Aldrich 
So, I"m browsing around on Woot and they have an HP ENVY 700-216
Desktop, quad-core AMD with 12 Gigs of RAM and a 2 Tb hard drive for
$440 (plus shipping, I assume.) My current linux box is a bit old and
not doing so well. Probably just a lack of RAM, but I'm maxed out on my
current motherboard. Now, I could just buy a new mobo/cpu/RAM combo, and
plug it in or I could just bite the bullet and buy a pre-built
commercial PC and just go the easy route. How well would something like
that run Linux, do you think?
