ki4jgt Posted August 11, 2012 Share Posted August 11, 2012 Just ordered a new laptop and I want to customize it. Anyone have any suggestions? Specifications: - Inspiron 15R - 8 gigs RAM - i5 processor (64-bit) - 1 TB hard drive (which I'll never use LOL) - Wifi (and I believe bluetooth but not sure) What I plan to do so far: - Install Ubuntu - Had a wierd desire to make it Dvorak instead of QWERTY - Also wondered what it would be like if the keyboard had no letters, so I purchased black stickers to go over the keys. - If no bluetooth, I plan to solder a bluetooth adapter into the motherboard. - Getting a wireless mouse - Getting a wired headset for comm purposes - Going to setup a VNC server for remote access - Thinking of donating some cycles to the folding research projects - Installing DVD support - Adding a live radio feed for my local police station to Rhythmbox - Want to look into setting up a DDNS url for it and possibly SSH Any other ideas?
