We're looking for a laptop to run in a 10,000', cold, occasionally wet
environment, and it needs to run CentOS 5.  Perhaps something like the
Dell Latitude E6400 ATG? There's a reference to a minor trackball bug
for the 6400 under CentOS 5 (http://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=4192)
but otherwise it sounds like the x86_64 version should run on it.
Ideally the system would use a SSD too.  Any suggestions?
