I'm recently retired from my university job. I am looking for a laptop 
to run CentOS 6/7. My university was a traditional Dell site so I've 
used Latitude laptops for years, currently E6500/E6510.

Anybody got any experience of running CentOS on the newer Dell 
Latitudes E5000 or E7000. These are not certified according to Redhats' 
Hardware Guide.

Alternatively Precision Workstations would do. These can be supplied 
with Ubuntu installed so they run Linux.
