Hello, Not sure I'm posting in correct area! I have a Dell latitude e5420 running Windows 7 64bit at work. I have the need for developing, editing, in XP, and or linux with favorite apps at work but can't install them on my work laptop. I use Visual C 6 alot, and need to have an ubuntu partition, as I need to learn linux as well. We use linux occationally at work on some systems. I could perhaps buy a external usb and set it up at home as dual boot with my work laptop that I can bring home, And install whatever I Want. However with this method I would have to switch boot OS's all day. I thought about buying a small laptop to bring in instead. My current home laptop is a clunker and old/heavy. We have a private WiFi separate from the company network that I can use for internet. Any help much appreciated!
