    Raspberry Pi

    Yep I'm finding that out the more I check in to them. Is the ram fixed or can it be expanded I wonder because I keep reading about the different size sd cards although I'm thinking that's more for storage.

    Raspberry Pi

    Yeah I'm thinking about getting on although want to find out more about them and see what all is available as I see they can be gotten as a kit package. It appears they can be used for quite a few different deticated types of uses and devices which would be neat to have.

    Laptop for Linux - Budget $800

    I'd stay away from HP and Lenovo as both have proven to be a problematic PITA POS in my personal experience. I'd go Dell.

    Swiss Army knife Linux

    A user should be proactive and check the forums daily for the distro being used so the user will then be aware of any red flag issues. Takes but a few minutes do and a good way to stay informed of changes etc.

    Dual booting Ubuntu Went Wrong? (Stuck on Grub Screen)

    You can try a bootable Windows DVD / USB and see if you can repair Windows. If you are able to repair Windows boot loader you may not be able to boot into Ubuntu.

    Dual booting Ubuntu Went Wrong? (Stuck on Grub Screen)

    At this point I think your only option is to insert your Ubuntu DVD / USB media and either try to repair Grub or reinstall Ubuntu and see if that works. Exactly why I will only dual boot using separate drives with the OSs own boot loader on each drive.
