My desktop computer died, and my laptop is old. I'm considering replacing my desktop with a new laptop until Haswell comes out. Plan to use it for work, programming, and distributed computing probably. Don't need gaming, but I do want to run Linux with VirtualBox. On this:
Dell Inspiron i15R-1633sLV 15.6-Inch Laptop
Yes, I know it's an i3. VirtualBox works on i3s, even though they don't have VX-t, right? And it's Sandy, not Ivy, but at this price I don't think I care. Anything else wrong with it? Anyone know of some obviously-better machine?
