Hi! New to Antergos, not to Linux. I need to purchase a new laptop for general use, I do a fair bit of spreadsheet work, videos, entering data in databases. I love Linux, I had CrunchBang for years and ArchBang later on. I’ve tried Manjaro a few times, not a fan. From my research and a quick live preview, Antergos is going to provide me the OS experience I’m after.
I only have about $250 CAD to spend on a new laptop. I did a few searches on installing Antergos on Chromebooks and found that there were errors with the eMMC. These topics were a bit old so I’m just looking for some guidance on what kind of low-end laptop I can buy that will let me install Antergos with minimum issues. I’ve tried the Arch way in the past on VM but never got far, its not for me, I’m happier with a guided install.
This the laptop I’m considering:
Lenovo Notebook 80YS0001CF Intel Braswell N3060
HP Chromebook 14-ak041dx - 14" - Celeron N2840 - 4 GB RAM - 16 GB SSD - Google Chrome OS
Or something similar, the HP Stream looks suitable for my needs too. I keep all my data on external hard drives.
I will not be dual-booting. If anyone can link me to a how-to, that would help as well.
Thank you in advance!!
