[kwlug-disc] Advice on Buying a Ubuntu-Friendly Computer

Thank you to everyone who kindly provided such helpful advice. I bought
my new computer today - Intel i5-2500K processor, 4x4GB DDR3 RAM, nVidia
GT430 1GB graphics card and an Asus P8H67-M motherboard with a 1TB hard
drive. I bought it all from Summit Direct in Hamilton, which I highly
recommend if you're in the area.
I installed Ubuntu 11.10 (painless as usual), and immediately installed
gnome-session-fallback and the proprietary nVidia driver. So far, it all
seems to be working great. Thanks to rsync and a timely backup, I'm
currently restoring all my files from my old dead system.
Again, I appreciate all the useful feedback and look forward to more
productive discussion on this list in the future.
