Laptops for Tiny Core
« on: April 24, 2017, 11:51:43 AM »
I may have to replace my Tiny Core desktop with a laptop. Just wondering if there are brands to prefer (or avoid). I'll probably be looking for a refurbished one.

That's a good question.  While I have no experience with Enterprise notebook security, I'd stay away from any Enterprise notebook with a TPM chip.  IMO it's a complexity nobody needs.    However, AIUI the feature can be disabled from within the BIOS.

While you're shopping remember this; you can never have too much memory :p

Yes, the TPM chip can be disabled in Setup

Macs are more trouble than they're worth.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

I'm happy with my dell latitude e7240 - be sure to specify intel internal wifi.

I prefer the 14" screen of the 7440/50, but the 7240 is a great laptop!
