New laptop?

I’m looking forward to meeting people at OSCON tomorrow (Thursday) we decided to skip Wednesday, because we’re still a bit tired from the trip over, and… we’re on vacation.

One thing I’m considering while I’m in the states is getting a new laptop because 1) Oregon has no sales tax, and 2) I can get one with a US keyboard (I can’t stand Italian keyboards for programming).

The OS would be Ubuntu.

Any recommendations?
